Thank you all for your uplifting comments on my last post about the dogs. We still haven't found Cami and Molly a home, but I'm sure it will happen at the right time. And anyway, at least they're out of their previous situation. And that's what's most important! Can you believe the rescue group we are working with pulled another 48 dogs out of that same barn??? So sad to see animal abuse like that. Anyway...
So, my sister in law is amazing in so many ways, the first being that she is a full time mom to 3 little ones. But then she goes and does unexpected things like buy me Pyrex and drop it off at my house...for no reason at all! These pieces are probably now the prettiest ones in my collection. I've always loved the 024's! I'm not sure what we call this color. Lime? Apple Green?
And then there is this stunner! It's called "Ocean Filigree". It's in Mint Condition and even has it's carrier. Love love love it! Thank You dear SIL. Love You!
OK, I have been feeling very sick with my R.A. But we'll leave that for another post. Or maybe skip it altogether. Like you want to hear about that! But point being, I finally had a good day today and felt like I could leave the house! So like any normal gal would, I headed straight for the above scene! Ha! Yes, I went to an Estate Sale and found true happiness as I sat on the floor of this crawl space and dug for Christmas junk!
I had to kick myself a bit because I didn't go on day #1, and this was now the end of day #2. I could tell I would've really scored some great stuff had I gone yesterday. Oh well! I was happy with what I got, including a vintage aqua silverware tray! A couple card boxes and a new in package old felt stocking.
These are my favorite kind of celluloid reindeer, so I was thrilled to find a herd of them! And I got to add another knee hugger to my collection!
I love finding Christmas corsages. I'll open this one up and add some glass balls and maybe a bell or something.
I guess I took a blurry pic. But anyway, obviously I found an old BINGO game.
I pulled these tiny mercury glass picks out of some weird candles that were in one of the garbage bags.
This great old box with the deer and snowflakes was also in the garbage.
Ha! Ok, it sounds worse than it really was. It's not like I was "digging" through actual garbage! Errrr..
I'm a vintage tinsel hoarder. I just love the stuff! But I do actually use it so that makes it a little better.
So that's that! Not a lot of stuff but it was fun! Best of all I only spent $3.00! I think the people running the Estate Sale were thinking "Oh, look at that poor girl sifting through the trashy Christmas leftovers"! lol
Hello, It's Me, Wellie (aka Noel)
Mama took me to the dog park today. As always I was the littlest (but loudest) of the 20 dogs there. I thought it would be kinda exciting to pick a fight with a Rottweiler. Yep, it was.
Mama had to apologize to people, and she was embarrassed, and worried about me!
She said "Wellie, you're lucky to be alive"!
Oh Mama, you're so silly!
P.S. Mama wants you to know that there will be a
MARKET MONDAY this Monday, March 31st
at 5:00 PM Central Time!
Hope you can make it!
We are linking up with THRIFTASAURUS today! Please hop on over there to see tons of fun "stuff"!
