Grandma's Neighborhood Sale

I'm out and looking for sales again!  Whoohoo!  Here are some of the goodies I've been finding.  A apologized for some of the pic quality.  Having trouble with indoor lighting!

The following came from a neighborhood sale and a "Grandma's House" estate sale I went to today.  It got my energy going for the sale season!

Anyone ever seen an oatmeal container like this?  So cool!

Can't remember if I've shared these ladies.  S&P from my neighbors sale

My birthday supply collection is growing!

What a find!  An original Dairy Queen container from the 40's!

I actually found two Jadite cereal bowls at Goodwill for $5 each.  I added it to my few pieces.

LOVE the German made bowl

More cupcake liners!

An old enamel teapot is now a flower pot

Sorry about the glare.  I found a package of embroidery AND iron on transfers from the 50's all intact.

I ironed on some of the fruit to vintage napkins I found at a thrift...

I also ironed these on to an old dish towel and framed them.

Then I put my 94 year old Grandma to work using the embroidery patterns!  So fun :)

Happy Saling!

Spring Junk

Found the vintage wagon at a yard sale for $5

On the Front Porch!

Oh how I love finding things I didn't know existed.  It's a vintage note holder for the front door.  25 cents at an estate sale.

  Well, it's been really busy.  Today I am exhausted, and I just needed a day.  A day for pure pleasure.  What did I first think of wanting to do?  Blog about junk.  It's spring and I did some "making-over" in my little house.  I've used my great finds of course, and had alot of fun!

From a yard sale!

I tackled my first refinishing project.  I've never done it before because I'm a horrible, messy painter.  But what I discovered is when you distress something, you don't have to paint well.  It was gloppy on the spindles, but when I finished, I took fine-grain sand paper and sanded the heck out out of it.  I love it!  I left the drawer natural... it just needed to be.  Oh, and the best part?  This was a dollar.  Got it at a yard sale of a friend, getting rid of all her Mom's stuff.

Also found at my friend's sale.  Her parents owned a pharmacy
and this was in it.  It's so funny.  I put it in a bathroom

My obsession with "food with faces" continues...this apron was thrifted for $2

Growing Collections:

Spring table runner...

I love this mug!!! I thrifted it for a dollar and at first thought it was made to look old.  Nope, it's old.  Made in the USA.

Living Room Update:

Yes, it was time to update the living room on a $0 budget.  Well, I did it.

I added blue, red and green accents to a mostly neutral gold backdrop...except for this one red/brown area.

This painting is by an artist from the 50's.  My husband remembers a similar one in his grandmother's home.  I got it at Goodwill for $8.  What happened to the 0 budget you say?  I sold stuff to pay for it!

The square pillow is old.  I took one of my vintage table clothes and folded it around the old pillow.  Then I added a button to tack it all down.  The Neck roll...$1 at a yard sale.

The table I showed you last time, made from a FREE door by hubby for Valentine's Day.  The rug from good ole Target makes the room and I got it FREE by selling two old rugs ;)

My newest Hazel Atlas...what a find!

Stopping By to say Hi

Hi Blog Friends!

I'm in the throws of book editing and working at the school district.  Just wanted to share a few things and say hi!

Hubby made me a coffee table from an antique door for Valentine's Day.  Those of you who appreciate the "oldness" factor, when asked if he should paint it or put clear coat over it, I opted to preserve it's natural aged look.

Just finished this wall in my living room with mostly rural vintage photos!

Some fun green and red finds!
