Well....almost. Madelyn started her first regular day of middle school today and is gone from 7:45 in the morning until I pick her up at 3:00. I seriously feel like I am missing a limb! Alex started his senior year this morning. He has most of the credits he needs to graduate and could be done with school a semester early but since he plays basketball, he is required to take 5 classes per semester. Plus, our school district has this really crazy A & B schedule so 1 day a week he goes to school for all his classes, two days a week he goes for two classes, and the other two days a week he goes for 3 classes. So, I'm not home by myself all day like I used to be. At least he has a car!
Despite last weekend being a holiday weekend, I was able to hit a few good sales. I didn't find a ton of stuff but definitely enough to get a little fix.
I found Maddie some books for a quarter apiece.
I actually found these tablecloths a while back and can't remember if I've shared them with you yet or not. They are perfect for fall!
I don't know what I like best....the vintage cards or the boxes that hold them.
This planter is super heavy and just waiting to be filled with fall flowers!
It's been quite some time since I have found any old cooking pamphlets. The Bisquick one is already a favorite around here.
I bought this tray at the same sale as the tablecloths. I don't think I've shared it either.
I am going to pain the mail box and add a cute vintage decal to it and hang it in my laundry room. The tray is small and just sitting with a stack of other trays right now awaiting inspiration.
I told you all recently that we are redoing Maddie's room. So we packed away all of her American Girl dolls and accessories so it's a little late for this sweet cradle. Plus, I don't think I can use it for a real baby so it will just have to look cute for now.
And obviously my favorite find would have to be the Pink Butterprint casserole! It has a super tiny chip on the rim but you didn't really think I was going to leave it behind, did you?
In the original set of these, there is a 471, 472, & 473. I have three of the largest and one middle sized (I know, stop bragging!). Wonder if I will ever find the smallest one?
Maddie & I have a couple of fun events coming up. Tonight is the Glory Days Antiques Fall Harvest Party. The store is closed all day so that the vendors can Fall-ify their booths. I always get so much inspiration (plus they serve refreshments so it's a win win for everyone!) Then this weekend is the annual Coburg Antique & Vintage Fair. Sister can't make it down this year so it will just be me and my sidekick Maddie. She is on the hunt for stuff for her room makeover and I am hoping to pick up a couple throw rugs. We are tearing out all of the carpet in our house and putting down hardwood so I need something to help with the echoing! If this year is anything like last year, I will be making several drop-off trips to my car!
Linking up with:
