A Little Bit Here, A Little Bit There

Hi Everyone!

It's been pretty crazy around here the last few days.  Trying to get ready for a party 18 years in the making can be exhausting.  High school graduation only happens for a kid once in their lives so I really want to make it special for Alex.  I tend to go a little overboard with my parties.  I hope he appreciates it!

I have been able to pick up a few things lately to give me my fix and slow the jitters of not being able to treasure hunt as much as I would like to.  I just have to keep telling myself that summer will be here soon enough and with Miss Maddie in tow, I should hopefully have lots more time to hunt.


I have now completed my pie plate set.  This aqua one was really hard to find!  I picked up the cute striped Hazel Atlas bowl at the flea market.


I've been finding lots of books for Maddie lately.  How cute is the Butterball one?  I bought the Morning Glory pillow case off of Instagram.  I have a tablecloth almost exactly the same print.


I've managed to thrift some pretty good pieces of Pyrex over the last couple of weeks.  All of this came from the Goodwill closest to my house on different days.  I wonder if it was all donated by the same person?


Some sweet Made in Japan pieces I found at Goodwill the last time Hanna and I were together.



And no post would be complete without one (or eight) thrifted vintage pillow cases.  I am hooked on these!

That's all for now.  Maddie has her last orchestra concert tonight so I gotta go help her get ready.  It never ends I tell you.

Linking up with We Call it Junkin' for History and Home, Jann Olson for SYC Thursday, The Cottage Market for Junkin' Joe, and Melissa's Antiques for Thrifty Things Friday.

Have a great night!

Erica

  3. Love the pillowcases! I thought of you today. Habitat was having 50% off day and someone had donated a whole collection of Pyrex and Fire King. It was in great condition - you tell none of it had ever seen a dishwasher :>)

  4. How many pillows do you have in your house? I do love the fabrics on those old pillowcases. And the feel. New sheets just don't feel like the good old fabric on the old ones! Congratulations to your son. It's a huge day in a kid's life!

  5. Love the aqua tray and the turquoise Pyrex! Such a sweet placement. I can never find all the pretty linen at Goodwill. Love all your pretties. Enjoy the days ahead. Treasure the precious time and moments.

  6. Junkin' jitters are the worst, even when they're for such a great reason. Congrats to Alex! (and you too) ;)

  7. How many nights do you think you could sleep on a different pillowcase? Hah! I think a lot! Just like me, I could wear a different scarf every day for months! It's so fun though to find things you really love! Great stuff you've found!

  13. You found the turquoise pie dish! Yay! I got mine finally, last summer at a flea market. I adore your pillowcases. Do tell, what do you do with all of them? I have a hard time not snatching them up also, but then they collect dust.

    Cheers,
    Heather @ Lark & Lola

  17. Such cuteness! Love the HA bowl, Valentine girl and sweet birdie. Can't resist those pillowcases and sheets either. Used some for the guest room bed this past weekend.
