Whew. Made it back from Vegas & let me tell you, it was quite a trip. We didn't get a chance to thrift or antique while there since it was kind of a quick trip. But that was probably for the best. In our incoherent state, Sister and I probably had no business being around anything breakable.
Since we were gone all weekend, I don't really have any recent finds to show you. So it's a good thing that I have a stockpile of pictures on my computer from all of my Summer finds.
I found these vintage baby shower invitations at the flea market. They went straight into my Baby Box for Sister. I will definitely be using these. They are too cute not to.
Some more vintage Christmas books for Maddie's collection. Hopefully she lets me borrow them at holiday time for displaying. Does anybody have any good ideas on how to display old books?
I have been on the hunt for the cast iron cornbread mold and finally found one at a garage sale for much cheaper than I had seen at antique stores. It wasn't something that I was so desperate for that I would pay a crazy amount of money (that is reserved for Pyrex). So I was happy to find it for $2. The nut chopper and bowls were from the same sale.
I collect these state trays and there happen to be two for the state that I live in. I was excited to find this at an unadvertised estate sale (my favorite kind!).
To give you all an idea as to how far apart Sister and I are from one another, check out this map. I live 5 minutes outside of Eugene and Sister lives waaaaaaaaay up north in Astoria 4 hours away! I hate it!
That's it for now. I have a mountain of laundry to tackle and some animals that are feeling very neglected. Vegas was fun but now it's back to get back to real life.
I will be linking up at the following parties:
Sir Thrift-A-Lots Thriftosaurus Thrift Haul
Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday
The Nifty Thrifty at A Living Space
Until next time...
