Fun Finds From Here & There

Good Morning!

I'm still playing catch up and to be honest, I don't think I will ever fully be caught up.  This has to do with two things....one, I just am not blogging as much as I need to be and two, I am still finding lots of things to show you!  I have pictures on my camera I haven't downloaded, stuff in my car, and little piles here and there of things waiting to be photographed.  Thank goodness the junk finding never seems to end! 

When we were in Spokane, we took a little break from Farm Chicks in the hopes that the crowds would thin out later in the afternoon.  Spokane has some really great junk shops!  I found this really sweet old travel bag.  Aren't the graphics great?

Some cute red, white, and blue ephemera for my 4th of July decorations.

This aqua rimmed enamel bowl is huge.  It was sitting in a stack with white and red ones and when I beelined for it, Brian said he knew exactly which one I was going for.  As soon as Miss Norah is sitting on her own, I am going to stick her nakey butt in it for a photo shoot.

I am in love with these cowboy themed coloring books.  They've never been used!  And the Texas Jigger brings my collection to 3.  They are all different too.

I sent Magpie Ethel on a fun field trip to pick these up for me from an antique mall in her neighborhood after seeing them on Instagram.  Thanks, Laurie!!

As soon as I saw these Agee Pyrex strawberry bowls, I knew they had to be mine!

When I found these NOS Humpty Dumpty drawer pulls, I had big plans to use them on one of my cabinets.  Now I can't bring myself to remove them from the packaging!  The NOS Santa cups were found at the same place.  I love when things are still in their original packaging!

More from the same seller.  This lady had tons of stuff still in the packaging.  I'm hoping she will be at the next market.

And a couple new squeaks to add to my collection.  I love finding these and can't wait for Norah to be able to play with them!

This seems like a good place to stop.  And my coffee cup is empty.  Priorities :-)

Have a wonderful Sunday!

I Almost Forgot!

Happy Sunday!

As I was going through and making some minor changes to our little neglected blog, I realized that I still haven't shown you guys the last of my Farm Chicks finds!  I am so behind on blogging.  I even contemplated taking a break from it but I just can't bring myself to do it.  Hanna and I have made so many awesome friends in Blog Land and it's been so much fun sharing all of our finds with you and reading your awesome feedback and comments.  So I plan on sticking around.  And Sister will be back too once she gets back into the groove.  Right now she is a little bit preoccupied with the most beautiful baby girl I've seen since Maddie.  Bear with me while I play a really long game of catch up.  And thank you so much for all hanging in there.  You guys are the best!!

I dug this incredible cowboy printed blanket out of the massive linen pile.

Feedsacks that I have no idea what I am going to do with but there was not a chance I was leaving them behind.  I worked hard digging these out!

Since Brian was along with me on this trip, we tended to bring home larger, more mantique style pieces.  Like this old light up top to an ice machine. 

There were tons of these giant letters at the Farm Chicks show but they were super spendy.  We actually found this one at an antique store in Spokane for a third of what they were going for at the show!  I've wanted an R for our living room forever.  This one is HUGE!

Not one to pass up an old cooler, especially in red!  This came in handy when we stopped at a giant farm stand on the way home.

More fun junk for decorating the patio and porch.

This old metal sign used to say Barn but only had half the N left so Brian customized it to make it more fitting for our house.

Farm Chicks was the perfect way to spend my birthday weekend.  Brian was a real trooper but I think that next year it will go back to being a girls trip!

Until next time...
