There has been quite a lot of craziness going on in the Rogers' household. Right after I finished packing to go see my sister on Thursday, I got a phone call from Brian telling me that my mother-in-law had to have emergency oral surgery on Friday morning. Well, there went my weekend babysitter!! She told me that she would be fine and that we should just go to Astoria and not worry about things. Uh, no. Leave my kids with a MIL under the influence of prescribed narcotics? Bad, bad idea.
Alex's homecoming was also last weekend. Brian said he had a feeling that Alex was conspiring something like an after party at our house. Again, NO!! So it just didn't seem like the best weekend to leave town. Luckily, Hanna agreed with me. She is all too aware of what kind of chaos could have happened had I left.
Then, I woke up Saturday morning with Brian's cold. Awesome. I'm the mom. I can't get sick. Sunday, my 11 month old German Shepherd Bullet cut his foot and now has to have it stitched up tomorrow. Oh, and while we are at it, we may as well have him fixed too since they have to sedate him anyways!! And this just isn't a regular male dog neutering. Essentially, due to something called an undescended testicle, he has to get spayed like a female dog. It's only Monday, people!!!!
Okay, enough of that. Let's get on to the rest of my junk haul from Thursday's estate sales.
The only reason that I can think of for buying the Reno souvenir coffee cup is that it is gambling related and that reminds me of my sister. I got the ice cube trays for my mother-in-law since she is always saying how much she likes mine. I have been finding these glass measuring cups like crazy lately. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen so I can always justify buying them.
I am in love with the smaller version of the Lustro Ware bread box. I have it sitting on my Pyrex cabinet holding cupcake wrappers. The turquoise bread box has the exact same decal as the tins that Hanna bought me for Christmas.
The 2 quart Flamingo utility dish and Gooseberry 502 (with lid!) are duplicates for me. You didn't really think I would leave them behind, did you?
Jars around here are getting way out of hand price wise. These are the first reasonably priced ones that I have found in forever.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do with this library drawer? I actually found two of them.
This is the second one of these art deco style jars that I have found. I love how it is tall and narrow. I have always wanted to start collecting sour cream glasses so imagine how stoked I was to find my very first one and it came with the lid!!! The pottery vase is unmarked and super heavy.
I love Thursday estate sales. Normally, if they start on Thursday, they go through the whole weekend because there is just so much stuff!! I'm pretty sure that I brought my fair share of the goods home. So far I've been getting my wish that the Fall sales make up for the lack of the Summer ones.
