I got out to one estate sale and a swing through the VOA yesterday. The pickings were all tiny but it was fun digging for them and I got some fun things.
Vintage plastic lace coasters, thimbles, bling, a pincushion and a strawberry and three of the tiniest little cookie cutters I have ever seen. I think they must be from a child's toy baking set. I love the rusty rabbit the best! I have already soaked the sweet crochet potholder and the stain DID come out - yay!
Plastic cake decorations and another tea ball. Oh-oh, that's three now. A book of old checks and the sweetest little box of "David's birth announcements and shower cards". That kind of stuff always tugs my heart strings. The box even has the handwritten list of names and addresses and the gift list.
Yes, I got another satin dresser box. I have room for just two or three more and my cabinet will be filled. I also got three more tape measures. That is one of those accidental collections I'm going to have to snap a picture of one of these day. Did you notice the antique hair crimper? We have no business complaining now days!
And a birdie in a nest just because I cannot resist a birdie. This one is a nice size. It is laying on top of a big pile of ruffled trim.
A little closer look at my new friend.
I have been busy all weekend painting windows for the new cold frame and cleaning the attic. I could feel my house breath a sigh of relief at all the weight I hauled out of the attic. I treated myself to a long weekend so I'm hoping to get out to the antique mall tomorrow to check out their Spring Home and Garden show that started on Friday. There is an up side to rainy days off!
