More vintage fun!

Good Grief! I didn't mean to be gone so long but it has been so pretty and with the time change it's light outside until late and I love being outside! So here is the rest of my "great buys from the estate sale last week:

These little fellows are my kinda guys! Reading elves! The bushy squirel was in with some birds and I loved the tiny Snoopy playing cards from Hallmark, 1970's!

I got these little molds and well as some that are shaped like Christmas trees and stars! These are being turned into Easter baskets.

This little girl planter is just adorable!

These have got to be one of my favorite finds! Little wine glasses with stems like the Hummel like people! There were 6 of these, but unfortuanately only five made it home intact. They are very fragile!

Yet another chicken on a nest but for $2.00 how could I turn it down!

A cute retro apron!

I have no idea why I bought a box of birds, but they called (tweeted) my name and so for .50 I took them on home with me!

I found this in the attic and used it to carry my things down to the cashier, she told me I could have it. Such a cute trashcan!

This glassware absolutely thrills me everytime I look at it. The most expensive item of them all was the glass basket. It was $5.00!

Umm, yeah! I said I wasn't buying anymore cookbooks. So I lied. Sue me!

This is perhaps my favorite find! This coffee set is Lefton, it is in perfect condition, though it was quite filthy when I brought it home. The cost for the entire set???? $8.00!

Look at that beautiful shamrock soup tureen that I snagged for $3.00! It will be holding creamed peas and potatoes tonight for supper and we will have cupcakes with the shamrock picks in them. The blue pitcher is handmade pottery. The Santa mugs are different than any that I have ever seen before. There is also a Christmas platter, and vintage birthday candles.

The last thing I bought I will share a little later! I'm still contemplating what I am going to do with them.

Whew!!! I really don't need to go to any more estates sales like this! I am running out of room. So I will probably sell some of this.
Have a great St. Patricks Day!

Wow, I sure wish I could have gone to that sale! I would have bought many of the same things you did! Love those elves and the little girl planter the best!

Great finds...if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the vintage apron and the pretty blue glass! What great deals. :)

Those are such Sweet memories that you shared of your grandparents, and even sweeter is how they gave you a love for growing things.

Hope you have a great week!
Big Hugs,

You really had fun at that sale!! I love sales like this. My sisters and I hit one about a week ago. Thanks for sharing your photos. I love the blue glassware too. It's amazing that the woven part is still intact as it usually is broken.

Hope all is well with you and that you have a great rest of the week

Love, Jess

My favorite thing is the Jerry Baker Flower Power book. I'd be so excited to have found that!

Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
