So I know that I promised that my next post would showcase the amazing box that Erica made for Maddie for the Golden Egg Vintage Candy Box Swap. But evidently Erica isn't done yet and asked that I wait to post about it until Maddie gets her second box! Two boxes? I told you Maddie was lucky!
I haven't found anything exciting out thrifting lately so I am going to resort to some of my back up files to share with you finds that you haven't seen yet. I know you won't mind:-)
I collect these Cat Studio state glasses. A few year ago, Brian bought me one from a local boutique for Arizona. Since then I have thrifted Oregon and Alaska. Then a few weeks ago, I found Washington & Florida. Someday these will be considered collectible like the vintage souvenir glasses that I covet now. They retail for $12.00 apiece so to find them at Goodwill for a dollar or less is always super exciting.
Over the Summer, I found a set of little appetizer forks at a garage sale. My blog buddy Jill from A Little Bit of Everything found the matching spoon set and was sweet enough to send them to me (along with the cutest Pyrex Space Saver note card).
And being the sweetheart that she is, Jill also included a vintage Golden Book and bear embroidered hankie for Miss Maddie.
I found the syrup dispenser, sugar shaker, and Lustro Ware napkin holder at a recent garage sale. The Lustro Ware was only 50 cents and we all know how expensive it can be!
I also picked up the sugar, creamer and shaker set from the same sale. It's not marked but I think it is also Lustro Ware.
At one of the last sales of the Summer, I got this amazing vintage Mixablend mixer with the Pyrex pitcher. As you can see, it still has the original sticker. The lady I bought it from was so worried that I was actually going to use it. She thought it might blow up and start a fire! So Brian replaced the cord for me. I haven't used it but it does work perfectly if I ever need to.
So Sarah over at The Adventures of Sarah Lee basically threatened me with bodily harm (just kidding!) if I didn't share new photos of baby Bullet. I try to get a new picture of him every few days which can be difficult because he just won't hold still! He recently learned to jump on the couch and go up an down the stairs. He freaks me out because when he comes down the stairs, he sprints.
He is also obsessed with his tail. He barks at it and chases it constantly. I think he is convinced that it is not supposed to be attached to him.
Sometimes I can get him to calm down if I let him lay up on my bed.
Can you believe those ears?
And those giant feet?
This is my other German Shepherd, 2 year old Brewski. Ah man I hope Bullet isn't this big! Brewski got to go with Alex in his truck the other day for a ride. It was the first time he hasn't thrown up in the car. Maybe he has outgrown it.
I'm heading over to my usual link parties: Sir Thrift-A-Lot, It's A Very Cherry World, & A Living Space.
See you all there!
