After reading the title of this post, you may find yourself asking what it is that I am recovering from. Well, a long Sister weekend of course! Brian ended up not being able to go to Astoria with me because Alex's deer tag was for this weekend, not next like we all thought. We had lots of people offer to take Alex hunting but Brian wanted to be with him when he shot his first deer (which he did!). I couldn't argue with that! So off to Astoria I went on my own.
Hanna, Matt & I had an awesome weekend. Got a little wild Friday night (borrowed someone's dog, argued with a lady over which basketball game to watch in the bar, etc...). You're not surprised, right? So we (mostly I) spent most of the day Saturday licking our wounds. But not to worry! We got lots of thrifting and antiquing in. You should see my bedroom. It looks like an explosion at an antique mall/thrift store. It's awesome!
But until I get that disaster cleaned up, I do have some finds to show you all to hold you over.
I've told myself that I am not going to get real wild with the Thanksgiving decorations around here, but everyone needs more Gurley candles, right?
Some more vintage pinks for my kitchen. I am in love with this sweet bird spoon rest. I have it displayed with some of my shakers above my stove. You didn't think I was really going to use it, did you? I have some of the Fire King Swirl bowls in white & jadeite but have never found anything in pink. I'm assuming this sugar bowl had a lid at some point?
Just in time for the holidays! I have so many of these I display them in a giant old jar on my counter. However, these aren't for display only. Maddie makes some mean Christmas cookies!
50% off Halloween in one of my favorite antique mall booths. The Jack-O-Lantern pumpkins are reproductions and light up. The lone trick or treat bag is my first and the crepe paper garland was only a dollar for both strands.
I love it when a new vendor moves into the antique mall, especially when they have vintage tablecloths under $10 apiece!
I got a little wild and bought all she had. They went straight into my stash. No washing or ironing required!
I haven't found any Pyrex at the thrifts in a while so I had to buy these, especially because they had the 50% off color tag. The Butterprint is a duplicate for me and the Snowflake Garland is not a pattern I normally collect but figured it will be a good piece to have for the holidays.
The dog we "borrowed", my new friend Marshal Mathers. Look at that smile!
Sister Love. Aren't we so cute?
Feel free to follow Hanna on her Instagram. I promise she doesn't post anything too inappropriate. She is a teacher after all! She almost has me talked into starting my own Instagram. I will let you all know if that happens.
