My Grandma was very sick recently, so I didn't expect we'd do much but sit around the house, enjoying each others company. Guys, I almost couldn't keep up with her, it was amazing! One of our days out was to Dade City to go do a bit of junking. The spun cotton angels were a steal! And while I know it's not Pyrex, (gasp!) I really liked the pattern on this cute little bowl.
My Grandma has a lot of history in her house, and she was kind enough to share some of it with me. The old sugar sacks will be used in some kind of craft project and that little baby is sitting with my keepers in the sun room. She gave my brothers and I each a salt shaker set! Yay!
The ball jar is really special - it was her Grandmothers! Imagine how much food that jar has seen... The two items next to it belonged to her mom, my Big Momma. The little trinket box had that Babe Ruth clipping in it, I wonder if it's from when he actually played. And the little glass turtle pin cushion is keeping my sewing machine company. So cute!!! Thank you so much for all the fun stories and little goodies. I really means a lot to me!!!
I went to my usual thrift when we got home, and it was like a whole new shop! It's amazing the new things you notice when you haven't been there for 10 days. They put out the Christmas stuff and I dove right in. Christmas and Pyrex...yes please!!!
This guy is my favorite Christmas find yet. His angry little head is spun cotton and his arms are mercury glass beads.
I have no idea how these survived the bins in the back. All of the glass ornaments I found were bagged up and each one had at least one broken bulb in it. The mushroom and peacock are broken on the top, but I figure with some careful placement they will be perfect for a ornament wreath.
It must have been my lucky day because I found some vintage buttons too! I have to start selling these, I'm running out of room to store them!!! I just love them so much! Do you have an item that you just can't resist when you see it?
Yay for vintage Halloween! These were at a local antique mall that was having a store wide moving sale. After all the discounts, they were 35% off and I got them for a steal! I felt bad, but the lady at the counter told me that the owners were going to reimburse the vendors for part of the discounts.
And to finish off a great thrifting week, I found this dang near perfect promotional piece with its original handle. It will be in the booth in the next few days.
It's been a busy but super fun past few weeks. This next week will be spent catching up with all my blogs friends. I fell like it's been ages, I miss you guys!!!I'm joining the parties at Sir Thrift A Lot, Remnant, Mod Vintage Life, The Thrifty Groove, A Living Space, Ivy And Elephants, The Cottage Market and Apron Thrift Girl. Have a great week everyone!
