Weekend Treasures & HQ Room

Too much SNOW!!! View outside the front of the house. It's almost waist deep for me!!!
Above and below...finds from the estate sale we went to on Friday. Our numbers were 51 & 52 so we didn't get into the house for awhile...30 minute wait I think and it was a tad cold waiting outside.





My room is already for the sale that starts on Thursday...



I hope the tea cart sells...




and this hutch....





and all these things....
Because starting the March sale...I have a new room at HQ...one of the gals is swapping rooms. I get a bedroom and she will have the small bathroom!!! Of course my rent is more...but I should make more. Guess I can start cleaning out the stuff in hubby's garage. It also means that I work an 8 hour shift...it's only once a month. I can do it!!!
Estate sales have been few and not so good! That includes thrift stores too. With all this snow...garage sales may start later...what's a gal to do??!! LOL....
Sister's birthday didn't go as I would have liked it to. We did have lunch and Mom came along. Other sister had to work. She really liked the collage :)
Sorry that I haven't been visiting much...don't know where the times goes ...
Warmly,
Deb :)

Hi there Deb! It is always nice to see what you have been up to. Looks like you have been a busy lady. It appears you got some goodies at the Estate Sale. I haven't been to any lately either. It has just been too cold or they have been too far away. I have a limit as to how far I will drive:) Have a blessed day and a prosperous sale at HQ!

Rose Haven said...

Oooooooooooooooo....all your pretty new "finds" look beautiful!! As for your new bedroom...wow...sounds as if you need TONS more new/old items!! I love the tea cart, what I can see of it. We are the owners of 2 tea carts already. One we purchased at an Antique Shop about 18 months ago...and the other just last weekend. This new one is MUCH larger and has a scroll-edged top on it...and is just lovely.

Stay warm...

For starters...I love your new header...that's soo pretty!
That's wonderful news that you are going to get a bigger room at HQ, I know you will even have more fun with it. I think you arrange your everything so beautifully in your booths and on your shelves...so fun to see it all, and I love how you change things out frequently. I think having a booth would be such fun! The box of old perfumes and jars are awesome! That was a great find...is that an old tums tin that I see in the box? Kool!
Hope you have a great week Deb...
Stay warm...I cannot believe all of that snow you have... It sure looks beautiful...but I know you are ready for a break from it by now. It will be spring before we know it.
Big Hugs,
Queenie

Thrifting is pretty slim in our area too. Once the weather warms up, yard sales will abound. Hope your transition to the bedroom goes smoothly.

I am sure someone would want to buy the tea cart along with all of the other wonderful treasures you have shown!! Just think of everyone elses stuff you can look at during your 8 hr. shift ~ that's what I used to do!! Good luck with the sale and I hope you new space empties faster than you can fill it! Judi

Barb said...

Oh I would love to rummage through the box of perfumes and lotions! I collect old Avon and I spy a couple in that box!

~~Carol~~ said...

Wow, what a great score on all of that perfume! Love the little ducky too.
Congrats on moving up to a bigger booth! That's really wonderful for you, and I'm sure you'll be a huge success. I bet you can't wait 'til garage sale season starts, so you can fill up your new space!
Have a great day!
Carol

Lyneen said...

WOW what a ton of snow... your room looks great... seems like you have your work cut out for you swapping rooms. Have fun at your rose class!!! post pics!

Judi said...

Hi Deb
I hope the weather gets better...you sure have lots of snow. We continue to be so lucky here...*keeping my fingers and toes crossed*. Just cold and sunny and no snow really...

YOu have so many wonderful items for your sale. Wow. Now where is it you have the sale...I can't recall. Do you have a house that you rent out for that purpose. Good thing you are having a bigger room because you have so many wonderful goodies. Good luck garage saling once the snow melts.

have a lovely day
Judi
