Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
I hope you guys have more exciting plans than we do. On our agenda this weekend is yard work, and a lot of it! We have two weekends left to get ready for Alex's graduation party so no camping or road trips for us. But I still managed to squeeze in a little estate sale picking yesterday before it was time to get to work.
When I brought home that ice tray last week, my mother in law asked me to try and find some for her too. She'll be pretty happy to see how quickly that happened. These were only a quarter apiece but I think I'll tell her they cost way more. I am not sure exactly how old the nursery rhyme decals are but I'm not one to pass up something cute that I collect. And it's been a really long time since I've found a syrup dispenser. I love the shape of the bottle on this one.
This milk glass planter is one of the Fire King ones. I am starting to amass a small collection of white hobnail milk glass. I didn't used to care for it but it's definitely growing on me now. This is the time of year that I pull out all of my Melmac dishes so I has happy to find two more turquoise pieces. The Hazel Atlas dishes are a beautiful fired on green color. I found a dessert dish just like them at another estate sale a few weeks ago.
More linens for my soaking pile. I've been washing a lot of them lately since the weather has been so nice. Those of you who follow me on Instagram have seen my progress!
How awesome is this one? So very MCM and retro. It definitely stands out in my collection of pastels and floral tablecloths.
I actually found this a while back but just recently pulled it out of my stash of dish towels. I don't think I've shown it before. It's a handmade table runner. The material is heavier than most of my linens, almost like a canvas. Plus it's 8' long and perfect for my giant dining room table.
I picked up this book for Maddie. This particular style of Shiny Brite boxes is one of my favorites.
I'm pretty sure that someone painted the handles in the fall colors on these fall & Halloween themed cookie cutters. It was cool to find some different than the green and red I always seem to come across.
I stopped at one thrift on the way home and spotted this Horizon Blue 442 in a cart they had just wheeled out. I dug for more but there was none.
While digging, I almost impaled myself with this aqua handled Ecko serving fork. It would have been worth it though! I have a really small collection of these and the pink handled pieces, all thrifted. Have you seen how much they go for online and in antique stores? I paid a quarter for this one. I'll just keep trying to thrift them.
Not a bad day for a holiday weekend. Normally, there aren't a whole lot of sales around here during Memorial Day but for whatever reason, there are TONS this weekend. Sadly, I won't be going to any more. Hope you all have all of your yard work caught up on and can get out and treasure hunt. I will live vicariously through you!

Have an awesome long weekend!
