This is the first weekend in a long time that we haven't had something planned. We normally have people visiting, basketball, or the weather is just too awful to go out in. Well this weekend it is supposed to be sunny and in the high 50's. I already have some vintage linens soaking to hang outside. Hopefully I didn't jump the gun!
This last week I had lots of errands to run around town so I did find myself in the vicinity of the thrifts a few times. Remember how I told you that this was the only way I would let myself go in? Well, I'm happy to report that I had some luck...finally!
The Meadow promotional is a duplicate for me so I think I will put it on eBay to fund some of the purchases that I make. I like to buy things online from time to time and I can justify it a little better if the money is already in my Paypal account. The blue 502 was only a dollar so it came home with me for obvious reasons.
For me, Friendship is one of the hardest patterns to find in the wild, especially the patterned lids. I found this one at a secret thrift that I won't even tell Sister about.
See the awesome pink shutter behind the Friendship? Well, I actually found this a while ago and haven't shared it with you yet. I'm not sure what I want to do with it so for now I got Brian to hang it on the wall above our closet.
Love vintage sheets and am always happy to find them. After the glassware aisle, these are always what I look for next. I keep threatening to learn how to sew so I can do something crafty with them.
When we were waiting in line to pay for the sheets, Maddie found a basket of books marked 4 for a dollar. I think she found some good ones, don't you?
This old bushel basket was in with the regular baskets and a 50% off color. TONS of possibilities! I've even got one that someone turned into a lighting fixture pinned on one of my Pinterest boards. How fun would that be?
Okay, so back to how I will use the money that I make selling on eBay to fund some of those vintage purchases that I just don't foresee finding in the wild....
Since I'm getting to the point where it's harder to find Pyrex pieces that I don't already have, I have switched my focus to Fire King. LOVE this mixing bowl set. There is a set on Etsy that is way out of my price range that I have been coveting forever so when I found this set on eBay for less than half the price plus free shipping, I jumped on it.
I think it fits in pretty well, don't you?
Busy day today....off to Lowes this morning to pick out paint for the laundry room and then to the tile store to order the new flooring. Then I promised Brian I would help clean out all of the cars. Maybe the sunny weather isn't such a good thing.....
Linking up with Pink Saturday & Junkin' Joe.
Have a great weekend!
