Estate Finds and Tag Along

It wasn't as COLD as "they" said it was this weekend...so..off we went to a couple of estate sales on Saturday. AWESOME vintage books....look at these wonderful graphics :) and they were a 1.00 each!!!
Linen, not old, jewelry and misc...


Cool postcards....the Thanksgiving ones have beads on them...haven't seen that before..see the ladies in the flower/Easter postcard...unique also!!!



This is my Tag Along for the month of February that Elizabeth at Creative Breathing does. She provides the picture and then you make it up as you like. Just something fun to do!
Pretty quiet weekend...house is a mess and that is top of the "to do" list for this week. If all goes as planned...lunch at a Chick Place with my friend Jeanne later this week. They have the best food and popovers that melt in your mouth...with a little help from the honey butter!!!
That's all the news for now....
Warmly,
Deb :)

I think I would be in Heaven daily if I got to go to the estate sales that you do. Your tag turned out so very cute! I love the short tag. I am busy making Valentine's and will be sending one your way. I hope your week ahead is a good one! Elizabeth

Great vintage cards and postcards. That book is wonderful.
Sounds like a nice weekend. So, now house cleaning this week. Take it easy. It does not all need to be done in one day.

Have a nice lunch with your friend.

Nightie-night...

Hi Sis ~ I love those old books...they have the best pictures in there!

You find the best cards...here by me, they want an astronomical price for them and I won't pay it!

It was cold here last week...this week we're supposed to get snow again! Glenn and I haven't ice fished this year at all...I'm having withdrawals!

Hugz,

Janiece said...

How fun! and what great finds you always come up with.

I am going to look for a frame today for my vintage valentines. I love them!
Thanks again!

Joy said...

OMG you find the coolest and cutest things.

Scrap for Joy said...

Great books Deb! You really do find some interesting things when you go "hunting". Maybe I need to look harder when I go to places. I find that things are either too tacky or too expensive. That one Valentine is hilarious!

Barbara Jean said...

Deb,
Love the old books, and only $1.00! I'm going to have to give up my title of best thrift shopper. =))

And it was so sweet of you not to enter the giveaway at Diane's so I could win. =0))
Think you can get everyone else to go along with that? NOT!!
So, you go ahead and enter. I will be happy if you win. I just absolutely adore about anything that girl makes. =)

Hope you have a most wonderful week.
I so enjoy when i see you have come by.

You find the coolest stuff, Deb. I love those post cards.

and speaking of cards... I received your ATC a few days ago. I just LOVE the JRT stamp (you knew I would). Where did you get that? What a great card... and I, too, kiss my dogs on the lips haha.

Pearl said...

Hi Deb...
Wonderful books you found! I'm glad you were able to get out to do some treasure hunting. Really enjoyed seeing those unique cards, too... You always find the best of the best!!
The Queen of Hearts tag, for the tag~along, is precious ♥ ... I'm still slowly digging through stuff on my little craft table...
Hope this new month is off to a terrific start for you...

Hi Deb, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my box of Valentine Goodies I won for your giveaway! Everything is precious! I love the vintage Valentines. David got a kick out of them and loved looking at each one! He thought one of them said from "David," but it was Donald! LOL! I love the little felt heart! It is so cute, and the little key is the perfect Valentine touch! And the chocolates...girl, you gave away the GOOD stuff! They didn't last long! :)

The crocheted doily brought back sweet memories. Did you make it? My grandmother used to make those. There were so many daughters and grandaughters in the family, that I unfortunately didn't get any that she made, when she passed. The one you sent will always be a treasure and remind me of her. And the sweet little hankerchief was beautiful!

Thanks for boxing it all in the pretty box! Made me feel so special, opening it! :) I just loved it all. I was so thankful, because all those goodies are the extent of my VD decorations! I'll try to post Friday, so that you can see the vignette I created with all my stuff, and to publicly THANK you! It turned out really cute! Would post before, but I've got to work tomorrow, and Thursday, David has a root canal! :( Keep him in your prayers, if you will. He is only 11, and I little nervous! But he is a trooper!

Thanks again, for the wonderful giveaway! You made my day! :) ~hugs, Rhonda
