Friday Show and Tell

T.G.I.F.!!!! Good Morning! Kelli over ate click over and join the fun.

Yesterday during lunch, I went to an Estate sales and let me tell you I was in heaven! Dolls, Dolls, Dolls! They advertised 100's of dolls but I bet there were 1000's of dolls. But I did good and didn't buy any. Well, kinda. I don't consider these dolls. They are more like ..hmmmm, decorations!

The little mouse just won my heart! He kinda looks like that mouse-like thing on the Ed Sullivan show. Popogejo, or something like that.

When I saw these stacked in a corner I almost jumped for joy!

There are 22 Good Old Days magazines from 1975-1977. My grandmother used to get these when I was a kid and I loved them.

And if that wasn't enough look what else I found:

Vintage doll clothes and stuffed animal patterns!
I can hardly wait to use this adorable pattern.

Who knew trolls wore clothes??? All of mine were "nekid"

Then I wandered over to the garage and found these:

Two 1966 catalogs. One in a Montgomery Ward's Christmas and the other a J.C. Penney spring and summer.

I would totally wear that black and white one!

So I have my holiday weekend reading cut out for me! Hope your's in fun and safe!

Hi, Linda! I'm about to go help the guys put the pool up but I at least wanted to stop by and say, HI!

I love that angel! We had a dark haired one when I was growing up.

I love Estate Sales. Unfortunately I haven't been to one in several year. I need to be watching the classifieds more closely.
Those old catalog's will be so fun to check out.
I love looking at the old magazines too. I used to subscribe to the Good Old Days but decided to let it go because I was getting too many magazines. I miss it so may subscribe again. Thanks for the nice post and good reminder too.
