Hi Friends! I hope you all had a great week!
A couple Saturday's ago I was able to get to an Estate Sale! The house was packed with every possible wonderful vintage thing you could think of! My sister and her boyfriend had never been to a sale, so I took them...rather they took me and my scooter since I can't drive yet! Anyway, we got there 2 hours before it started and got number 67!!!! WHAT? So crazy! I still managed to find a few of the things that I went there for. And here is what came home with me...
If this guy didn't have so many chips he would be worth quite a bit. But he'll look cute displayed with my Pyrex I think. Hopefully I can paint over those chips!
Of course I couldn't pass up these darling vintage children's books!
This Mother Goose one is the best!
It's from Christmas of 1926!
Isn't she sweet?
There are little rips and tape on most of the pages, but that just means that it was a much loved book right?
I love his face!
And I added another Golden Book to my collection.
Sorry for the terrible pics! I'm trapped on the couch right now because I've been having lots of swelling and pain under my cast. Uhhg! But only 2.5 weeks to go!
I was thrilled to find this large paper mache Santa! And I had been looking for a cute little truck to make into an ornament. I'm going to strap a bottle brush tree in the back and dust it with mica snow!
I was worried that maybe the Santa was a repro or a newer version, but it's marked with the same name of the little girl that owned the book in 1926! Cool!
I've never owned any paper dolls, but these are sooo cute! You can put the bunny in the wash tub! LOL
Or a Bear on a Scooter! And look at that red checked skirt and aqua sweater!
A cherry embellished dress with matching clutch for a little sweetheart!
But someone is sleepy in their red robe with Minnie Mouse doll!
At the sale I also bought the shiny red PYREX bowl that was in my last post, and my sister's boyfriend (aka "the one" ) found me a really cute mint green colored chair in the basement.
OK Friends, I hope you enjoyed seeing my little purchases from the estate sale. I'm really craving digging into my art supplies and making some holiday things! As soon as the cast comes off you can expect more than just a single post per week. I can't wait to get busy!
