I think I remember my Grandparent's having this bird guide up at the cabin. The cover is so pretty! I often find Readers at my little local thrift store. They're so cute, but what do we do with them? lol This one was especially cute. I'm keeping the mint duck. And I bought the little posies for Easter crafting from Papertales on Etsy. I think they have really good prices!
See how cute it is?
Look how proud she is! lol
The blue swan and the puppy are unmarked, and the squirrel is marked Japan. They were at my local thrift, but the books were at the Goodwill. So funny...the Rand McNally was $1.99, which is normal for their vintage books. But then I turn over the Book About God, and it's marked $4.99! What???
So I take it up to the girl and ask her why. She goes to the back and comes out about a minute later and says it's because "That book is listed on EBay for $15.00 right now"! WHATEVER! She was really nice and let me have it for $1.99, but said I should know that in the future it all depends on what things are listed for on EBay. Don't they realize that people can list things for whatever they want to. It's how much it SELLS for that counts!
All that being said, it's seriously one of the sweetest books I've seen.
I think it's worth about $10.
Isn't this page beautiful?
The other day, at my local thrift, there was a pile of perfectly clean and ironed vintage hankies!
I picked out 9 of them. I still want to make a banner over my art area with them!
This little planter was with all the other pieces above. She is marked "FLOWER, DISNEY"! I looked her up and I think she's from the 60's. You can find several of the Disney characters on EBay. Wouldn't they be fun to collect? She'll be for sale.
I always see these handmade safety pin baskets in antique stores, so it was fun to see one "in the wild" the other day! My Valentine's decorations had just come down, but it would have been cute in that display. I rarely buy vintage jewelry, but these looked interesting. I took them home and did my research. They're both marked Sarah COV. They ended up being a good buy, and they'll go up for sale too!
Please excuse this terrible pic! lol The nice lady at the thrift gave me the glass beads and reindeer when I inquired about them. The Gurly tree, and other little pieces to craft with are perfect for
Vintage odds and ends: A vintage Hearts game, Birthday candles, and cute red horns that I'm unsure about!
Someone must need little red horns!
OK-I think this was the oddest post I've done. Very random stuff! LOL
I hope you have been finding some good things, or better yet, creating good things!
I made my first spoolie for Sandy's Easter swap! It was so much fun, I'm excited to make more.
I'll post again in a couple day. I've got some good news to share! :)
