Party Party!

Normally at this time of night, I would be bedded down with my DVR fired up to watch The Real Housewives of Wherever.  However, two things occurred to me tonight: I haven't blogged in almost a week and it's Rednesday!  Enough said!

I wasn't planning on stopping at the sale that I found all this stuff at but it's a good thing I did.  I got the vintage drink umbrellas in the original (but in poor shape) box, the scotty dog cookie cutter, and the 4 Gurley Santa candles for $1!  Yep, you read that right.  A whole dollar.
I love the graphics on this tablecloth.  It doesn't look like it was ever used and will be perfect for Valentines Day.
Even though its not vintage, I couldn't pass up this cute handmade sign.  The color doesn't show up too well in the photo but it is a really light aqua.  It fits in really good with the shabby decor of my bedroom. 
I got this pillowcase and dish towel out of the free box at the sale that I got the Apron sign at.  Kind of funny how they were selling reproductions but giving away real vintage!
How cute is this?  Miss Maddie found it at a sale a few weeks ago.  She collects vintage furry figurines and what is cool about this one is that it is also a piggy bank.  She really has an eagle eye and sees things that I miss just about every time we go out garage sale-ing.  I am going to miss her while she is in school this year!

I'm heading over to Rednesday to join Sue's party and to Sir Thrift-A-Lot's for his Thriftosaurus Thrift Haul party.  See you there!

Until next time....

    1. Hi Melissa,

      I will try and remember to post a photo of them the next time I blog. I have them all folded and displayed in an old freezer basket that I painted pink. I will admit that it is overflowing:-)

  10. Maddie's squirrel is very cute! lol Boy, You started her young on thrifting! That's totally what I would do if I had a daughter! By the time she graduates high school she'll be a pro!
    My newest collection is cookie cutters with handles like that. I think they'll take up a little less space than Pyrex! Haaa!
