I'm Back And With Some Magpie Madness!

Hi Everyone!

It's been a while since I've posted but unfortunately it's due to not having internet for the last 10 days, not because something super exciting is taking up my time.  Dang it!

The weekend before last, Maddie and I headed up to Portland to hit the Plucky Maidens Holiday Junk Fest.  Even though we literally had just gotten home from Portland the day before after seeing Justin Timberlake, there was no way I was going to miss this show.  I go every year and Magpie Ethel was making an appearance with all of her wonderful holiday craftiness and estate sale treasures.  I had to go!

Remember when Laurie found these awesome pillowcases in Estate Sale Land?  Now they are mine!

I just remembered that I need to hang this coloring book cover up!

A new apron and stocking for my fun collections!

Laurie had a whole army of these little Santa hat kids, all holding different things.  I had a hard tine choosing which one to get so I left it up to Maddie.  The Santa's will join my growing flock and the Christmas List box is one of my newer collections.  You didn't think I was ever going to stop collecting, did you?

And of course I couldn't leave without some one of a kind Magpie Ethel creations!

When I went to pay, I noticed that Maddie had snuck a few things into my pile.  She does that at Target too!

And can you stand all the donkey cuteness!  Made just for me by the sweetest crafter I know.  Thanks again, Laurie!

I picked up a few other things from other booths but I'll save those for another day.

Linking up with:

Jann Olson for SYC Thursday
The Cottage Market for Junkin' Joe
From My Front Porch to Yours for Treasure Hunt Thursday

Happy Holidays!



  1. Love your many treasures. Laurie has so many wonderful things. I am especially fond of the party birds!! That stocking is adorable. Maybe you will show your collection?

  2. So much sweetness I'm on sugar overload. ;) I would love to go to that show. You have such great shows out west I might try to talk hubby into moving. Does Laurie have a blog or Etsy shop? Her creations are great!
