My Weekend Finds
Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekly Finds!
It was rather surprising how few garage sales there were, considering that it's July and the height of garage saling season. I had a wad of singles burning a hole in my pocketbook, and not a heck of a lot to blow it on! I was thrilled, however, to find that lovely old Floraline vase, and the Lefton bride and groom.
Finally, a little Christmas in July! All Shiny Brites, and I got it all for 50 cents.
This little example of pink lusciousness was found at the flea market. It took about 20 minutes to clean the nooks and crannies in those numbers, but for $2, it was totally worth it. I can't wait to see it hanging on my mint green kitchen walls!
A couple of old Little Golden Books. I've been yearning for that Our Flag book for ages. The dominoes will be used in my Halloween decorations.
Can someone tell me why we scribbled in our books when we were little? And why, for the love of all that is good in this world, did this kid have to scribble all over the Pledge of Allegiance???
The watering can, pink planter, yellow planter and the birdhouse with the flowers on it are also recent finds.
Which required rearranging everything on these shelves that Mr. Old Glory made for me. I guess I should have showed the before shot! He also made the birdhouse on the top that is a replica of our home. He is awesome!
Until I do some rearranging inside the house, all future pottery is going to have to go on the front and back porches. Which will then have to come in for the winter. Or maybe I should just stop buying pottery. But I see no need to panic just yet......
So what did YOU find this weekend?
