Getting Caught Up On Last Season's Finds

Happy Monday, Everyone!

Last estate sale season, I did quite well in my vintage finds.  So well in fact that I still have a folder full of photos to show all of you.  I am going to let this folder act as a fill in until the thrifting and sales start to pick up a little better around here. It's always good to have a back up plan!

I am still finding photos of things from our girls trip to Bellingham, Washington last Summer.  The shakers and donkey planter came from an antique mall in Snohomish, WA and the little Pyrex 030 was grabbed out of Sisters hand at Goodwill!

You may or may not recall the Trick or Treat Cooky Cutters from my Halloween decorations.  Sister bought these for Maddie in Snohomish.  I picked up the valentine's from the same store.

I was pretty excited to find the Jadite collectors guide at a rare book store in Bellingham.  This book store was amazing!  I am not exaggerating when I say that my BFF, Rachel and I literally had to drag Sister out of there.  She has a major addiction to vintage books.  I also found the Betty Crocker cookbook.  Maddie has already made the sugar cookies out of it and they were AMAZING!!

I like to pick up these pint size Hazel Atlas jars whenever I find them.  They are perfect for iced tea/coffee & vodka lemonades!

On our way to Washington, we stopped at an antique mall in a small town just across the Oregon/Washington border.  This store is where my souvenir glass collection started.  I have the hardest time passing up any kind of vintage drinkware.  I wish that they would have made the graphics uglier!  The next piece of furniture that I bring into this house is going to have to be able to hold and display this growing collection.

When we got back from Washington, Maddie presented me with her thrifted finds.  She went to work with her dad one day and drug him into a SVDP.  She does pretty good on her own, doesn't she?

I hope all of you enjoyed this little catch-up session.  Who cares when I found it, right?  Everything is just as amazing as if I had found it yesterday.

  1. If we haven't seen it yet, it still counts! I have a few things that I found in November that i haven't put on my blog yet, because I am lazy and haven't taken photos of them yet :)

  2. I'm with Pam - I don't mind when it was found - still love to admire and read about your finds!
    I'm curious - what is the cut-glass bottle with the red lid?

  3. The Valentine's Day cards are so sweet and I love the cheery yellow of the caps on the shakers. Great finds!

  4. The Betty Crocker cookbook is super neat. The ones I run into always look terrible! And we need to do a vintage blogger party because a vodka lemonade in a vintage jar sounds like something we would all enjoy!

    1. I'm in! A vintage blogger party + vodka lemonades is the perfect combo!

  5. I love the halloween cookie cutters! I also can't blame you for grabbing the pink 080 - especially since it looks to be in good condition, all the ones i find are so sad looking!

  6. Liking your new banner too with the polka dots!

  7. What's not to like??

    Everything's great!!

  9. LOL I didn't know that we are aloud to "thrift" right out of our siblings hands! Whatever you gotta do! LOL
    My friend gave me that Betty Crocker cookbook last summer. Isn't it so cute? Love it all! Keep showing us pics...it lessens the hurt a bit (of no estate sales right now) Ahhh!
    Erica :)

  10. I love seeing any and all treasures! Love the little pink Pyrex. I'm still thrilled with my blue bird find! ♥

  11. What great treasures. Thanx for sharing at THT!

  12. Those cookie cutters are so nifty and I just love the second drinking glass you found. I'm a sucker for stationery so I love all the cards you bought, especially that adorable kitten one.
