Summer Blogging

Blogging seems to take a backseat to Summer as the days race by!  Yes, I am still junking even though days have raced by without any blogging about it.  It has been a VERY long and unusually hot and dry Summer here in Portland.  I'm not loving seeing the days get shorter but I'm enjoying the cooler temps and we are finally having some rain to help out the firefighters and dust things off.
These finds are from the past week.  I have been very busy at the big girl job but still got in a few lunch stops for my junk-tooth. I collect Royal Ruby and Forest Green but these vases are duplicates so they will be headed to the booth for Christmas, along with the book.  The heart pincushion will be added to my collection.  I'm not sure yet about the flower frogs...
These little angels are so sweet!  They need to open their eyes or they are going to miss.
These Fire King saucers have roses on them, not Primroses.  Does anyone know the name of the pattern?
A golden angel for Christmas.  I have been picking up quite a few of these 60s Japan Christmas figurines and I'm starting to look forward to pulling out the Christmas bins and sorting for the booth.  For the most part I avoided holiday decor in my Etsy shop because I don't have space to store it but I have been accumulating like crazy for the booth since there will be an expectation of Christmas decor there.  Fingers crossed!
This dapper fellow will be joining two others I already have.  I kind of wish someone wouldn't have drawn a face on him but he DOES have an attitude! Yo Dude! I looked up the "The Petit Prince" French children's book on line and it might be a find.  It will be headed to Etsy in the next day or two.
There hasn't been much time for crafting around here this Summer but I DID get the seats covered on those chairs I showed you in this post. Now I just have to put them back on - LOL!

Well, there are 2 winners tonight. I have one frog and it would be fun to have a collection. But, I also like the copy of The Little Prince.

Hi Kathy, yes the summer flew by and here we are into September. I'm ready for cooler temps here after the hot summer we had. Great finds once again. Love those Fireking saucers. Not sure of the pattern with the roses. The little kissing angels are too cute.
Love the fabric you covered your seats in.
Have a great holiday weekend. cm

I love finding holiday items all through the year. Enjoy your weekend! Hugs!

Everything looks great. Good for you. I have the little girl angel and am not sure about the little boy. Having a booth to sell your treasures in will be great this year. You won't have to worry about where to store everything. I think you are doing a great job on your lunch breaks. And you still find time to blog about all of it. Keep up the great work!

Those little angels are so darn cute! You're going to have so much fun decorating your booth for the holidays.

Not only have I apparently stopped blogging, I seem to be only checking blogs periodically. Love the finds!! I need to get over to Monty's and see your booth again.

You could sand that little face right off that dapper fella!

This time, I love the flower frogs (I have a green one like those.) and the folding measuring stick.

Thank you for sharing your hoard with us!

Kathy, would you believe that now that I'm committed to purging and not junking, I have that Goodwill Bins store about 5 minutes from my office??!! Crazy timing!! I think of you whenever I pass by it.
