Happy Almost Weekend!
Tomorrow morning, we are headed up to Portland for our fun filled Sister/Maddie/Mom weekend. I am super excited to see what awaits me at the Plucky show. I'm on the hunt for Easter and anything that I can use to decorate my laundry room. Fingers crossed I find what I am looking for.
This last week I managed to hit the thrifts a few times. Spring Cleaning is upon us so I have had quite a few bags of things to donate. You really didn't expect me to just drop of my donations and leave, did you?
The pink 024 is a duplicate for me but for 99 cents I figured I may as well bring it home as a backup. Alex loves Strawberry Jello with Mandarin oranges and I always use this size of bowl to make it in. With a teenage boy and Pyrex, it is always a good idea to have extras. The Bearenstain Bears mug reminds me of when Maddie was little. She was obsessed with that show!
More vintage pillow cases! Can't ever seem to pass those up.
Another Bearenstain Bear mug, this one found at Value Village. I never go into VV but Maddie was in desperate need of some shorts so we headed in to find her some. The mug tree will get a makeover in a more Erica type of color and the Oregon souvenir glass is a replacement from when Alex fell in the box where I was storing the set and broke about half of them. I am slowly finding the ones he broke.
I headed into a local antique mall on the hunt for some Easter stuff and found this sweet pair of bunnies. The boy's glasses were broken so I got a good deal on the set...$5! I think he looks like he is wearing a monocle. The Catchword game will be added to my new vintage game collection.
I also got some more Made in Germany eggs. After I bought these, I went to World Market and found that they do a really good reproduction, also made in Germany. So now I'm not sure if I bought the real thing at the antique mall or if I ended up with repro's. I don't care though because they are still super cute!
I got 4 of these egg boxes to add height to my displays.
Maddie found this magazine for me at Goodwill. This along with a single paper egg are all that I have thrifted this year. Not a whole lot of vintage Easter to be found.
That's all for now! Gotta go pack and make sure that the laundry is done and there is food in the fridge for the boys. Not sure what they are gonna do while Maddie and I are gone this weekend and truth be told, I'm not sure I want to know.
Next time....Easter Decorations!
