Hi All- Two weeks ago I went to Annie's Birthday Sale! Annie's is my favorite place to go when I need to "escape". No kidding, I can walk around for 2 hours there. It's like the flea market to me, I'll suffer through severe foot pain, in order to rummage through rows and rows of vintage treasures!
And speaking of foot pain, there has been a lot of it! I guess I've put it off for as long as I possibly could, and now I have to get real. So I'll be on the phone this week, making all the appointments for my surgery.
I knew I had to face reality when I wasn't even able to get to the flea markets the past two weekends!
Anyway, everything was 50% off at Annie's Sale! The day or two before the sale, I scoped things out and made a mental list of the things that I wanted.
I lucked out, and was able to get everything on my list except for one thing! I missed out on a huge bag of feed sack quilt squares. But oh well. For a girl who doesn't even sew yet, I think I'll live!
I was REALLY impressed with myself though because I didn't buy a single thing that wasn't on my list!
Aren't all these illustrations cute? This is the first "Bonnie Book" I've ever purchased. I'm thinking that it probably won't be my last! Haaa!
I was able to get tons of old cards! So sweet! :)
Annie had another FRUIT GLASS for me! So now I have six! Of course I had to get these fridgies, and the Butterfly Gold bowl (in the background). But one of my favorite purchases is this full size feedsack with all the brite colored squiggles on it! You should have seen the stack of feedsacks! But I told myself I could only pick out one!
A few more Rand McNally Elf Books. The "Hiawatha" one is really darling!
Vintage Valentines! I'm so addicted it's crazy! I shouldn't be aloud to buy one more...ever!
Also, I'm just putting it out there that I would like to host some sort of Valentine's Swap in 2013, because boy do I have stuff to share!
See these bowls? I DON"T LIKE THEM! Ha Ha! But they were $2.50 for the pair! Maybe someone that loves them will want to trade with me. You never know!
This vintage apron is so soft! And even better...it's not TINY! haha It actually fits me!
Speaking of not being tiny, I've been sticking to Weight Watchers and have lost 6 pounds!
Weigh-ins are Tuesday nights, so I'll keep you posted....or maybe not if I do bad! haha
A book about a Runaway Pancake! AS IF I was leaving that behind!
Unlike the bowls, I DO like this pink gooseberry casserole!
I hope you all had a great weekend, and were able to spend time with friends and family.
