Estate Sale Sunday
Yesterday I worked on The Farm for hours and got the weeds knocked down so it is ready for the barrier cloth, which The Husband started on today. Oh.My.Gosh. I went through two jugs of Gatorade and it was SO hot. I cannot believe this weather in May. Thankfully it is raining tonight because we sure need it. Today was a play day and I headed out to the second day of an estate sale to see what was left. I was rewarded. Check out those old Alka Seltzer bottles with their perfectly Tiffany blue tops!
LOVE that huge tin with the lattice and roses. It was a holder for those embroidery paint pens that were popular in the '70s. It has roses, enough said! Plus a new needle book that I didn't have.
Pins ( call me crazy) but there are a few very cool hat pins mixed in. The poke sacks included a few things I wasn't interested in but it was half-price day and sometimes you have to kiss a few frogs....
Lady bugs and bumble bees, who could resist those?? The scoop says "Farmers Elevator Adams" on the handle. The Hostess Embossing Set is missing the dip pen but I love the little bottles and they are full.
They had stacks of old sheet music so I gleaned out the ones with neat graphics because that is the part I like. Those little fairies dancing on the toadstool are too cute.
Oops, there are those pins again the a jar for buttons and some random meal stuff that seemed like it would be fun to make something out of one of these days when I get around to some assemblage - lol!
I hope your Mother's Day was a happy one. My younger son brought me a pretty hanging basket so I'll snap a picture when the rain stops. The Farm is so close to done, can't wait!!
