MY WEEKEND FINDS

Thanks for tuning in to another episode of MY WEEKEND FINDS, the continuing saga of one girl's quest for more junk!~~~~~~~~~Today I'm sharing some recent finds and some things that were found during my extended blog break.......
The red plaid KILTIE thermos jug is probably meant just for cold drinks, but I love it on the back porch in the "winter fun beverage center". Grab a sled or a pair of skates and when you're done, come back for a hot cocoa!
A pink rhinestone clock. I love finding these, and I display them amongst the lady head vase collection.
I found these watering cans back in the Fall.
This watering can is super duper chippy!
I've seen these houses on a couple of blogs but never in real life. I bought it at what I thought was an estate sale, but ended up being a divorce sale. Kinda sad, but I got real happy when the husband  said I could fill a bag for $2. Let me just say that when offered that option, I will pack 25 pounds of junk into a 10 pound bag! So I think this awesome addition to my patriotic decorations cost me about.........25 cents!!! It's very cute during the day........
And at night there's fireworks! LOVE the fiber optics and the tiny lights on the bunting and all along the house. I feel bad that the lady of the house let her soon-to-be ex practically give away her amazing holiday decorations, but she can rest assured that her little patriotic house will be well-loved, and that there will be a fireworks show every night at 8PM over the summer!~~~~ So, did YOU bring home any junk that you never thought you would find?

Oh my goodness, girl you certainly know how to shop. You find the best stuff . . . and I love stuff, LOL. Your blog is an inspiration, I need to shake the snow off my boots and go junking :) I would like to invite you to visit my blog and come on over and help me celebrate my three year blogging birthday with a Give-A-Way.

Yippee for rescuing that mini house. I have such a thing for little houses. It definitely needed to be rescued. I'm also pretty smitten with that red plaid thermos. It would like awfully nice at our A-frame (just in case it ends up missing). So glad to have you back!

Thermoses and picnic jugs are my new weakness. I never meant to start collecting them but it just happened! They multiplied like rabbits :-)

Holly- Cutie Pie Cottage said...

Oh what a cute pic your thermos station makes!

I saw one of your blog pics on facebook today! They probably found it on Pinterest. :)

I never thought I would find my Irmi lamps at the thrifts since I had only seen one once before at an antique store.

Fireworks? For real? Awesome. I see the watering can torture will continue this year. (There are none here, I tell you. None.)

Pam Kessler said...

Thermoses are my life. Love those ones :) And that 4th of July house is pretty cool too!

Monna said...

I think the 4th of July house was from Avon, probably about 10-15 years ago. You might be able to find one on ebay. Monna
