My brother lives about an hour away, and he came down on Wednesday to hit some flea markets and let me cook him a birthday lunch. We didn't buy a lot, but it was fun. Rebekah used her own money to by this crocheted doll dress for $1.75.
(eta: again my lack of focus is showing. i didn't even see bekah's cardboard playhouse in the background until i looked at the finished post. i don't have the energy to retake the shot, and my photo editing software is behaving badly, so you get a glimpse of the playhouse, which normally lives behind the couch, hidden from view)
On Saturday, as I was driving Rachel and Joshua to their shooting sports practice at 8 am, we passed a sign for a benefit sale for the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Zowie. If there is one thing I love more than a yard sale it's veterans! It hurt to pass that one by. After I got the kids settled in I realized I needed to go to the post office, so of course I had to run back by that sale. And two others. All three were for charity, so I think it was fine.
The owl is painted on the back of the glass. That piece is already in my Etsy shop. Speaking of my Etsy shop, I had my first sale this weekend, and an inquiry about shipping another item to the Netherlands. Yippee. Ok, back to the finds. On the far right in that picture is this.
This is the milk glass juicing attachment for an old stand mixer. Complete with chrome spout. I have an old stand mixer, but I don't have the juicer. Well, I didn't have the juicer. The lady taking money at the church sale didn't know what it was, but I filled her in.
The cute painting is also from that church sale, and it is an actual painting.
I don't know where it's going, but it was too pretty to pass up (especially for .75!)
Also from that sale, I got these vintage clip on earrings.
Rachel and I sort of collect vintage clip ons. (i have had so much trouble with picture rotating themselves at random in this post, that i'm not even going to mess with that one)
