Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds, the continuing saga of one girl's quest for more junk!
This week's episode finds our heroine (that's me!) scoring lots of great junk when she really should be working on her own garage sale. At least I can't feel too guilty about buying that aqua clock radio, because the one that was sitting there went straight into the garage sale. I'm trying to be better about getting rid of one thing every time I bring in something new!
I finally found a matching set of glasses that I really like for my carrier. They look so much better than the mismatched ones that I had in there.
Why yes, as a matter of fact I am trying to collect every picnic tin ever made! I think out of all the ones I own, this one really says summer to me. I believe it's because the plaid pattern matches the old aluminum woven lawn chairs that my grandparents owned.
The jury is still out on that flower-shaped clock in the bathroom. I like it. The rest of the family hasn't said a word about it, and I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing........
A vintage plaster fawn, which will be coming inside for the winter but for now is living on the back porch.
The deer planter on the right was a 50 cent garage sale purchase.
This old cement........pigeon?......was an estate sale find, and she now roosts by the entrance to The Secret Garden.
Mr. Old Glory finally let me get a dog! Ok, as much as I would love the real thing, I was very excited to find this Mobley squeaky dog. It's just like the one I had when I was little, and it was only 25 cents at a garage sale. AND, it won't poop in my garden!
These Easter Bunny blow molds are super skinny, 3' tall and all white except for their eyes and mouths. They're so weird looking. So I had to have them!
Love their big buckteeth!~~~~~~So, the projected date of our garage sale is August 8th, and I'm telling you right now that I won't enjoy it at all.  Do you know why? Just think of all of the sales that I'm going to miss!!!!!

Wow! You found some wonderful goodies. I especially love the bunny blow molds. Yeah, they are kind of creepy and I would have had to buy them too!

Love the radio! A colored vintage radio is on my wish list!

I am now caring for 2 (real) dogs and 2 cats. When you're in the country, that's not a lot of poop. When you're in town, it *IS*!

Happy decorating, Carol!
I know you love it as much as I do!

Every one of your blog posts could be my blog posts. Love that Mobley dog. He is on my wish list but only if I can find him for super cheap. Have you seen what those go for online?! It's not a real dog, people!


Annette said...

Oh, you did well. I try to bring one thing in and take one out ,too. I have failed at that. I love your bathroom peek. One of the reasons I have my potting shed is because my sweet hubby doesn't like "all that junk" in big doses. Love the bunnies...weird but fun! I will be having a garage sale the same day as you. Maybe we should just swap stuff.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the plaid picnic tin. I swear you are a magnet to those things. Those bunny blow molds are pretty fabulous too. I'd have bought them as well. Those vintage drink glasses are spiffy. Your welcome to bring those to my a-frame. I'll fix us a few special drinks!

I just had to giggle when I saw those crazy rabbits! You just find the best stuff!

Julie said...

I love the clock in your bathroom! I see you have a deer collection going! I have been trying, but so far have only found one deer. Are you selling any of yours at the garage sale?

I have the same dog and a smaller one. When I got the big guy home he REEKED of cigarette smoke. That rubber absorbed some serious second hand smoke. I left him in the garage for probably a year and he has finally lost that horrible smell.

Super finds! Love the aqua radio and the deer planter...so cute! Oh that is the only kind of dog I would want...one that doesn't poop!

Patti said...

You find the coolest stuff! No kidding...how do you do it! Love those goofy rabbits, too. They look like they could guard the egg basket! Maybe they need uniforms!
