Where does the time go?
Seems the end of summer and beginning of fall is zooming and Christmas will be here soon!
I have picked up a few goodies, helped with a fundraiser, courthouse tours, went to a vintage market and a spur of the moment Pyrex hunting trip.
Come on with me..........
I love fall shopping
I always go home to help the organization that sponsored us for the Charleston Riot
They have a silent auction for the fundraiser, and I was helping to put things out I saw this
a Eastern Star platter, hey...I recognize those name?
OMGOsh there is my Grandmother's name
They sold it to me for $3
pretty mustache mug for $5, and gift certificate to my friends antique store for $10 worth $25 and a pie basket.
Not sure I have ever seen one?
you can carry 2 pies in it.
made in Rindge NH
loving it for $15
A local Flower Shop sadly is going out of business in my hometown
they were having a garage sale.
for 10 cents, they are coming home with me. Thinking they can be used in some craft project.
I gave my SIL some.
helped with tours of the courthouse, love the view of the college from downtown
family time at 1515, family dinner and Fred being wild and showing off his tee shirt from the brewery his friend owns in Colorado.
my sweet MIL turned 91!
Then my SIL headed to a Vintage Market Day
Don't forget about her gorgeous trees she makes for Christmas,
store is on my side bar.
she uses vintage wooden spools and blocks
So at the market we found some blocks
most of the items I love, like old metal chairs, wooden folding chairs, dry sinks, things I bought years ago before they were in vogue AND much cheaper.
I have have the Holly sugar sack, still have not made it into a pillow!
adorable old campers made into shops where there
Then my neighbor took me to another thrift store
lemon lime Pyrex carafe
the right price
Then my girlfriend want to get away this weekend so we headed to 1515, and our Pyrex finds were abundant!
Did you hear me scream on Saturday "Patty come here NOW!"
I found Butterprint in the original box NEVER used!
the man told us it was bought for a lady in 1957 as a present, she thought they were so pretty she was scared to use them so they were packed away. When she died neither one of her children wanted them.
An amazing find!
then we found this at a flea market! Oh my
I got my first ever pink bowl, you can see it on the shelf in the center.
Oh I am tired today! Feet up this morning, luckily I don't have to go to work Wednesday.
Well, that covers the last 3 weekends.
I work WTF and then vacation for 2 weeks!
Headed to San Antonio for my birthday, can't wait!
Have a great week,
