A Fun Day Out.....:)
Happy Sunday! I have some finds to share today. I haven't had much time to go treasure hunting lately, but that's just as well since I am trying to purge some of my stuff and not drag home so much. All part of doing BETTER this year...:) I've been very successful this year with doing better in many areas of my life. I am quite proud of a couple accomplishments I have made recently concerning my health and I will share those sometime soon, but for today I will share the things I deemed worthy of dragging home on our yard sale/flea market day out yesterday. I am proud of myself for purchasing mostly things that have been on my list that I have been needing/wanting.
First up is this adorable little milk glass mixing bowl. I have been working on replacing dishes in my kitchen with mostly white pieces, so this was a must have....especially for $0.25! It is in perfect condition.
This beautiful baking dish also had to come home with me. It is quite large and also in perfect condition.
It was $3.
This little frame will be cute painted a bright color and it was just $0.10. The print inside is pretty and I just may keep it. It's a little more country than I typically like but I love the old pitcher pump and the barn in the background. Reminds me of childhood at my Granny (Willie Mae) and Grandpa's house...:)
This little cutie had to come home with me. It will probably become a coffee scoop. I love the heart shape and the handle says a heap of love...:) It was $0.25. I have been wanting some scoops so I was happy to find this one so cheap.
Two iPhone 4 cases for $0.75 each. I love both of them and couldn't pass them up.
They look brand new!
Of course, this apothecary jar came home with me. I didn't have one like it and you know I love and collect these sweet little jars. Not only that, I actually USE every one of them. This little beauty was just $1.
Did you notice those sweet Fire King cups behind the jar? I was tickled to find two more that I didn't have to add to my collection. I paid more for these than the ones I bought in Amish country last year, but they are in perfect condition, so I didn't mind. I hardly ever find them! I found them in the antique mall at the flea market. This place is absolutely enormous. I was totally overwhelmed with all the things to look at. I could have been in there for 24 hours and still not noticed everything there! These were in a half price booth, so I paid $3 each for them. I have been wanting the tulip one since I first saw one online!
The flea market has a really nice kitchen store in it, so these next few things are new items I bought but at great prices. I was excited to find a honey dipper. I have been needing one for the little honey pot I thrifted a while back.
I have been needing a meat tenderizer forever. This one will last a lifetime!
Like I said earlier, I have been wanting some scoops for a while too and found some today. They had all sizes, but I just bought two of the smallest ones.
And now for my last and favorite find of the day!
A Scrabble game....
You might wonder why this is my favorite find of the day, but I have been wanting one for the longest time. I love the way people are using the little wooden trays and letter tiles in vignettes. I love the look! So, I was thrilled to
find one! This one is vintage...from the 50's and in perfect condition! There was even a vintage notepad in the box as well. See below. The price is printed on the right side....$0.10. The paper was linen. They used it to keep score because there was still handwriting in it. I like the graphic design of the cover.
So, that's it! Much less loot than I normally drag home, but I am happy about that. I did purchase some produce....green beans, okra, asparagus, sweet peppers, red potatoes, cucumbers, and strawberries! Yum! I also purchased something from Harbor Freight (yes, the tool store) for my craft room, but I'm not sharing that until I give it a makeover...:) Enjoy your Sunday friends and have a wonderful week!
