Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds, the continuing saga of one girl's quest for more junk!

This May angel is missing a wing, but she still wants to wish you a Happy May Day and an early Happy Mother's Day!

A Josef Originals bell. She's got her arm stretched out, as if she's asking "Why oh why was I only 25 cents?".

A McCoy frog planter.

I found this birthday figurine a couple of weeks ago, but thrifting/garage saling has been awful, so I decided to save her for another time. Ok, actually I forgot I had her!

Isn't her little cake cute?

An October birthday angel.

I found this a couple of weeks ago too. She looks like she is either trying to climb into that birdbath or catch one of those birds!
Soooo, the junking action has picked up a little bit. And in two weeks, there is the citywide garage sales to look forward to. Last year, I think there were 300 participants. That's alot of junk! Did you find some good junk over the weekend?

Cute, cute, cute! Lovin' the B-Day angel! Nothing new for me, but I'm hoping to hit my favorite flea market on Thursday:@)

Been on an angel hunt for a long time now and here they are flocking to you! The birthday angel is my fav but how can you NOT have a soft spot for the one-winger Mother's Day girl?

Love these sweet little angels. It is getting harder and harder to find them all intact. Seems there is always something missing on them, flower or wing? The little one peeking into the birdbath is priceless. Smiles..Renee

Oh, I love your girls. I have never seen the October with the mask before? My birthday is in Oct. And the christmas one was a great find!

Happy May!

I ♥ the Christmas girl best! I never see these girls while out thrifting but I have found some goodies lately- mainly a vintage train case! It's very ugly but solid and waiting for paint!

Have a great day, Carol!

Hi Carol,
I sure do love your little angel collection. The one at the bird bath is very sweet.
It was a great weekend of estate sales for me!

I love those sweet figurine, I too grab them even if they have a broken wing. At times I add some new wings. And they sit on the shelves in my Studio~ oxox, Diane
