Quick Post

Just a quick update as I add more items to my etsy. Last night I put together some vintage ad packets. I am in the process of listing them at the moment. All will be under $10. I had so much fun putting them together and deciding on themes for each one. I have about ten or so to be listed with various themes of make-up and cleaning products, many of which are still in use today. One packet it filled with vintage romance magazine pictures, perfect for crafts!! I must admit, I am guilty of keeping quite a few of my cut outs for my own stash.
Vintage Romance Clippings
Today, I woke up early and went to two lovely yard sales that were listed on craigslist. Both were said to have lots of vintage items and when I got there I was not disappointed. I scored so many great things for both me and the shop. Look for my next post on my finds from today.
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!

More Concerts!!

This past Thursday, a girlfriend and I went to the Elton John-Billy Joel concert. It was really good!! We actually had really good seats for being in the balcony. They played all their biggest hits and a few others. I had a great time!!

I am finally getting around to adding all the items to my etsy. After tonight, half of the stuff I need to add will be up!! If you feel inclined, check it out!! After all the items are listed, I will be holding a sale. Here's a peek at one of the new items:

That's all for tonight, as I still have a few more items to post!!

Great Weekend!!

Before I share my awesome finds from this weekend, I must give an update on my Pumpkin girl!! My little Pumpkin is a late bloomer and we have to hold off on getting her fixed because she has yet to loose all her baby teeth, or at least enough to get the surgery. Since taking her to the vet a few weeks ago, I have noticed that a lot of her little teeth are gone!!! They must have all fallen out while she chewed up mama's antique desk. :(
But with a face like that how can you be mad?? And no one looks at the bottom of furniture anyways, right...?

Now on to this weekend!! As I mentioned in my last post, my mom and I went to our church's rummage sale. We each found some really cute stuff. I got a few things for my etsy (which will be listed by the end of the week) and a few things for me. One of the things I am planning on keeping is this adorable little girl's robe. Based on the label inside, I am guessing its from the late 40's early 50's. I can't wait to have a little girl someday to wear it!!

After the sale, we decided to try a few garage sales. Not much luck, except for one that had a whole bunch of vintage stuff at it and it was all half off. I found this basket and got it for 50 cents!! I knew it would work to hold my fabric stash.
I got a few other things there, but the basket was pretty much the highlight of the garage sales. Today, last minute, I decided to check out an estate sale close to home. Being the last day I was hoping to score some low prices. I wasn't extremely impressed, but still managed to get some good deals.
The lady used this bull as a pin cushion, but after doing some research on the info from the tag, it turns out to be a toy. I guess it could work for either.

If you like this little guy, look for him in the etsy in the next week or so! Or you can always email me to!

These two items were the big ticket items today! I have been looking for a vintage bun warmer for a LONG time!! I couldn't find one anywhere. This one is exactly like the one my my has that is from her mother who get it from her mother! I brought this one home with me for only 80 cents!!! The metal picnic basket is etsy bound since I already have one.
I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!!

I Can't Believe...

... it's been so long since I have posted!!! I am so glad school is finally over. I am taking a few summer classes, but they don't start until July so I have been enjoying my time off. Since I got out of school mid-April, I have gotten so much accomplished!! This is why I love having time off of school.

At the end of April, I went to the Britney Spears concert with a friend. It was AMAZING!!!!! We had floor seats and were probably about 5 people away from Miss Spears. I never was a huge fan of Britney, even though I am part of the generation that "grew up" with her, but my friend really wanted to go and I thought why not. The Pussycat Dolls opened followed by the Big Apple Circus. It was a great concert; I am so glad I went. Here are a few pictures!!

Today, my mom and I went to our church's rummage sale. We made it just in time to fill a bag full for only a dollar. I got some really cute stuff (pictures tomorrow). Afterwards we went to a few garage sales, but didn't have a lot of great luck. When we got home, I got busy and got to work setting up my sewing area. My mom has recently moved all her stuff downstairs to the basement and gave her old sewing room to my Grandma. I've always had my sewing and crafting stuff downstairs but now that my mom will be down there too, I know I'll actually go down there to work on a project. It is my goal to actually sew some stuff this summer. Now that that is all organized I will be taking pictures of all the stuff I have to put in my etsy...which is A LOT of stuff, so look for some new items within the next week.

Here are a few pictures of some stuff I found at the end of last summer and never got around to posting it.

The purses and gloves came from an estate of a WWII nurse.

I love peach glaze FIRE KING!!! I almost have a complete set. The two pans were bought at a garage sale, the round pan at the thrift store, and the little bowls were found on eBay.
More tomorrow!!
