Happy September!

Fall is definitely in the air.  The kids start school next week, it's colder in the morning, and getting darker earlier in the evening.  Soon, I will be changing the look to of our blog.  It's time to put away the Summer theme and adopt a cozier, Fall look.

I don't know if it is the fact that this is Labor Day weekend or if the season is simply winding down, but I went to a total of 3 sales this weekend and two were right down the road from my house!  Here's a look at what I found

I haven't found any tablecloths in the last couple of weeks so I was happy to find this one on a dollar table.  I don't have any tablecloths with purple in them so this is a great addition to my collection.
I found these two shabby wrought iron plant stands and contemplated painting them for about two seconds before I realized how perfectly chippy they are.  Why mess with that?
Not entirely sure what I am going to do with these old road maps.  Any suggestions?
I was drawn to the graphics on this box and was super excited at what I found inside
A set of 8 Bartlett Collins holiday themed tumblers.  I can't wait to use these at Christmas.
I found these canisters and table runner about a month ago at a sale that was being given by two sisters who decided they were closing down their booth at a local antique mall.  Their prices were still pretty high but they had some awesome stuff.  I could have spent a lot more money than I did but I was good.  I had never seen pink canisters before so I was pretty happy to find these.

Then, the following weekend I found these while antiquing with Sister and BFF.
No readers, you aren't delusional.  This is the full set of the exact same canisters as above.  And of course I had to buy them!  How often do you come across pink canisters?

I made a promise to myself that although school starts back next week,  I am going to try and keep up the same blogging pace as I have done all Summer.  It's so much fun to show you what I have found and what kind of projects we have going on around here.  I love your comments and am addicted to checking out your blogs as well.

I am heading over to Beverly's for Pink Saturday and Sir Thrift A Lot's for his very first link party.  Hope you all have an awesome Labor Day Weekend!

Until next time....



  1. I just bought 3 of the Bartlett Collins tall glasses today. I am sure I have more in the garage that are waiting to be uncovered/cleaned/priced/sold! I love the bright graphics of the glasses. The canisters are so very nice!

  2. You did better than me today, the pickins' were pretty slim around here!!

    Of course, you had to buy the canisters when you saw them!! So cute!!

  3. Make Christmas ornaments or a garland with the old maps. Oh, or placemats or modgepodge them onto coasters. Love the old graphics on old maps!
