More Catching Up


Good Morning!

Another catch up post for you all.  If you are on Instagram, some of these photos you may have already seen.  I love IG for that reason.  Sometimes I get so excited for a find, that I can't wait to share it and Instagram allows me to show it off lickety split!  If you haven't joined yet, you really should.  So many of us bloggers have jumped on the bandwagon.  So even if you don't want to post photos, you can still enjoy all of the eye candy.

On to the loot!


I went to an estate sale at a small house a while back and was #20 in line.  Once it was time for the doors to open, there were about 40 more people behind me.  The house was around 1000 square feet and the owners let every single person in at once.  I'm not going to complain but the small space and tons of people sure made it hard to maneuver. But I did manage to get some things.  The old dish towel was pretty yellowed but cleaned up nicely and is back to bright white.  I can always use another measuring cup and the Cooky Book was one I had on my list for a while.

 
More flower frogs for my ever growing collection.


The bluebirds were the whole reason I went to the sale.  When I saw the pictures online, I knew I had to try to get them.  There were lots of dealers at this sale in line ahead of me so I wasn't very optimistic.  But the way they were priced left little to no profit to be made so I had no problem getting them for my collection.  The orange birds were in the free box.

 

I thought these cards would be cute in a Fall display.  Also from the free box.


I cannot pass up pretty vintage sheets!  I have a pretty good collection of full sized which works out perfect because as soon as Alex moves out, I am putting a full size bed in his room just so I can use them!  The ice cream scoops will be getting a makeover with some chalk paint.

That's all for now! 

Linking up with We Call it Junkin' for History & Home.

Have an awesome day~

  1. Love the blue birds. I have the cookie cook book and have made a few of the cookies from them. I use the sugar cookie recipe for my cut out sugar cookies at Christmas. Nice finds as always. I love IG too.

  6. I want to go to a sale with a FREE box. I'm going to suggest that at the next sale and see what they say. Might be some cussing involved :) Hope you have another great shopping weekend!

  9. Damn... I need to stalk you guys on your Junquing Trails... what great Loot... especially the Flower Frogs, which is one of my many Obsessions! *Smiles* I once went on a 'pick' and scored an entire collection of them... I literally threw myself across the table to ensure I got them all... yeah, I'm greedy like that when I see an Instant Collection of something I J'Adore. *winks* Dawn... The Bohemian

  10. Glad those sweet birds were still waiting for you. I hate crowded estate sales. Hard to avoid but it's nice to have a free box to make up for it.
