It's the last full week of summer vacation and I purposely planned nothing. No appointments, no projects, and no plans. It's been so nice to just laze around, enjoying the last few days of non-chaos before the school year starts. I hope all of you are taking a few moments to do the same:-)
Want to see what I've picked up lately? Well, of course you do!
I managed to do a little antiquing while we were in Vegas last week. You may wonder who in the world antiques while they are in Las Vegas. Seriously, we go about 3 times a year so sometimes it's nice to take a little break from all the chaos of The Strip. I found these 3 Swanky Swigs at an antique mall for $2.50 apiece. They weren't even on sale! That is the cheapest I have ever seen them in an antique store. These were also patterns I didn't already have. Sister, don't be mad at me about the little orange puppy glass. I will find you one, I promise!
I went to an estate sale that was for a lady who had a huge booth at one of my favorite antique malls. She had recently passed away and her son and husband were having the sale. She had quite a collection of vintage lunchboxes and this is one that I picked up. I am going to have one heck of a 4th of July display next year!
I also picked up these old lunchboxes. Aren't they so cute? I have the picnic basket that goes with the yellow and black plaid one.
What do you all think of the quilt I picked up for Miss Maddie's bed? I don't know too much about quilts but I'm pretty sure this isn't all that old. It is handmade and in perfect condition and only set me back 10 bucks. Not a bad price, huh?
I got these ornaments at the same sale as the quilt. There were about 20 grab bags of ornaments and each bag was $1.00. This was the lone bag of vintage ornaments mixed in with a bunch of bags of Walmart ones. Lucky me!
I think Maddie almost has me conned into doing a little back to school shopping today. Better late than never, right?
I'm also going to head over to Rednesday to link up and check out what all is going on in the world of reds.
Until next time....
