Labor Day Finds

I went to a few thrifts, and a yard sale.  I did pretty good!

 
 
Found this at a thrift for 55 cents.  Then went back and found another! I Loved Holly Hobbie as a kid.

This was also at a thrift for 50 cents.  My second.

I was super thrilled to see this mint condition Mod Pyrex for $4.  I got rid of mine during my major Pyrex purge and regretted it.

And I couldn't resist this "Sleepy Time Tea" tray for 50 cents.

This is the start of my outdoor Fall display.  I already had the cake carrier with the acorn...I just got the Thermo pot for $1 at a yard sale.  LOVE the color.

Hobnail vase $1 at a yard sale

This was all at the same yard sale.  A vintage Christmas tin, Santa Coca Cola glasses and a cute Melamine mug. All 25 cents each.

Remember this ad slogan from the 70's?  10 cents at the yard sale

This Pyrex bowl was 50 cents at the same sale.  I'm wondering if it is part of the all yellow set.

This little angel used to have something hanging from her hand.  I just thought is was so cute!  Thrifted for 50 cents.
 

I am soooo excited about this!  My 93 year old grandma...the one who makes all the cute tea towels...just found a quilt that her mother made in the 40's.  It's not backed, so I'm going to look in to having it finished.  Grandma said it's made from mostly feed sack material. (Have I mentioned how much I love Feed Sack material?)  This is so exciting.  I have a family heirloom and didn't know it!


 
It was a pretty good last weekend before school.  Tomorrow everything amps up for me.  I will have to start checking ads for Estate Sales as the weather changes.  It's been a great summer with my family and vintage hunting!   --Stacey

You did do pretty good! I am a fan of Holly Hobbie also. I wonder if the angel would slide onto a taper candle? I have some Christmas bears that do that! Glad you enjoyed your summer and best wishes for a great fall!

Squeeee! That quilt is fabulous! What a cool family treasure.
And I'm so jealous of your Mod Kitchen!

The RC cup is cool. Jealous of the Pyrex find & Holly Hobbie mug is quite fine.
