A Few Treasures

Hi Everyone!

Hope you all had a fun & festive 4th of July.  Although it was a late night here, that didn't stop me from sneaking out early to a few close sales this morning.  With it being a holiday weekend, there weren't a whole lot of options but I needed to get out of the house for a while to let all of the serious partiers sleep.  How in the world do kids stay up all night?  I don't think I ever did that when I was their age!

I love finding things to add to my collections like this old 7UP crate and tablecloth.  Two bucks apiece!

I actually picked up this trio of jars last weekend but forgot to show them to you.  The Chase & Sanborn couldn't have come at a better time.  It fit right in with my patriotic decorations.

I love the shape and print on these shakers but the lids are pretty bad.  I will probably end up using them for little bud vases.  I found this full box of flamingo decal border.  I can't wait to find something to do with it!

There were two sales across the street from each other.  Maddie spotted some kids stuff at one so she headed over to it while I checked out the other sale. Next thing I know, she comes running across the street yelling "Mom, I need 75 cents!".  This is what she came back with.  She was absolutely beaming. 

Yay!  Another pie bird and Hazel Atlas ivy bowl for more of my never ending collections!

So this morning was definitely more about quality over quantity.  Added some things to a few collections and got my vintage fix in the process.  Don't you love it when that happens?

Have a great weekend!



  1. I have the salt and pepper and my lids were shot as well...they are bud vases for me. Well done Maddie with her seventy five cent purchase!

  2. You and your little helper found some good stuff today!

  3. You two have the most wonderful adventures!!! Anything involving a selection of good glass kitchen items---I'm your girl.

    And I think the flamingo border would be perfect HERE:



    1. Hi Rachel!

      Thanks for the idea. We will be checking that out :-)

      Erica, Hanna, & Maddie

  4. Not only is the Dots bowl amazing, but the story behind it is so cute! I also love the 7-up crate, such a steal!

  5. Well YES, I do love it when that happens! And I'm so happy for Maddie that she found the bowl for .75! I think that's a record! I can't wait to see what you do with your flamingo decals!
    Angie and I are heading to a big flea market in the morning! It's going to be HOT, but I can't wait!
    Have a great weekend girls!
    Erica :)

  6. Cheap dots, love. Maddie did great.

  7. Great deal on the bowl!! Eagle eye Maddie!!

    I am going to venture out this morning as one yard sale is advertising a large amount of scrapbooking and craft supplies, we'll just see if it's false advertising or not!! Hah!!

  8. That crate is super cool and you can't beat the prices you guys got. Holy cow, .75 has to be the best price ever for that! Way to go Maddie!

  9. A dots bowl for Maddie! Woo-hoo! ♥

  10. Way to go Maddie...75 cents! Some great finds for a holiday week...not much going on in my neck of the woods. Hopefully things will be back into full swing next week!


  11. Absolutely LOVE the 7up crate...and the flamingos! So fun. Can't wait to see what you do with it. And go Maddie! DOTS are the best. :)

  12. You always find the coolest stuff. Love it all!

    I believe those shakers were also sold or given away as a 3 piece shaker promo for Accent (an MSG food additive that still exists!). I saw a picture of them in one of my collectors books and thought they'd be neat to come across.

    And what a score on the dots bowl. Good job, Maddie!

  13. Hi!

    I love Pyrex bowls too! Lucky you to find a pie bird. I don't see those in my neck of the woods.
