I'm so obsess...

It was a good Saturday for estate sales. I also bought a sweet wing back chair and old piano bench. The garage is PACKED....UGH!!!!!!!!!
Unique game cards and sweet puppy dog. Cute child's apron. LOTS of buttons. Why do they make me happy?!

Weekend finds....I'm feeling that I need to go out a couple a times each week to find treasures. No place is safe....today was the thrift store and I'll show you those finds later...the family room is busting at the seams and I'm feeling like a hoarder...SEND HELP.... Of course I can "justify" the buys because almost ALL of the treasures are for resell.
Anyone interest in starting a support group???!!!
I did work out in the yard today. Lots of weeds that needed to go bye-bye.
I'm also ironing tonight. Poor hubby was down to 1 shirt. I don't mind ironing and like to have a huge pile of clothes to iron so it feels like I accomplished A LOT!!!
Mother's Day is Sunday. My Mom is going "up north" for a wedding. Not sure what the kids want to do. Saturday, daughter and Granddaughter are going to a "Tea Party" at church. I was hoping my Mom would go and that would have been a 4 generation event.
That's it for now. Back to the ironing board!
Deb :)

Hello Deb, thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment. You have some really great finds here. I love that crochet pin cushion. I collect them. That one looks different.
I don't remember what state you live in but I think you should be able to set those seeds out if your past frost.
Have a wonderful Mother's Day.
Blessings, Shirl

Love all your fund finds...especially the transferware bone dish and those buttons. I try to justify buying things for resell too...after I enjoy them myself for awhile! lol

Come visit my blog...I'm hosting a $50 giveaway.

Hi Deb! Must be fun spending so much time hunting for treasures. I like that puppy dog, and I have a *thing* for buttons, too.

Happy Mother's Day to you. We are celebrating by taking mom out for a picnic.

I LOVED the picture of the little one at the piano in the Post, below. So Precious!!!
Take care,

Thanks for all your kind comments on my blog Deb. I've really had some difficult days with my older sister not feeling well after a serious car accident.

Moving forward though, I'm wishing you a very happy Mother's Day!

Thanks for your sweet card. I love the little fabric pansies! Creative

Happy Mother's Day to you.

Hey Deb!

Hope your Mother's Day was wonderful!

"Hello, my name is Becky, and I'm a junk junkie..." I'll be first in line at your support group! I've had to slow down the treasure hunting a bit lately because of the new smaller shop space, but I still love to look and even bought a couple of things on Friday...I manage to justify the purchases one way or another...

Your goodies look incredible - I will always love buttons...they are so adorable! Can't wait to see your thrift store finds...I'll just junk shop vicariously through you for now! LOL!

Have a great week!

Hugs & Blessings,

Queenie said...

Oh girl, you are so funny...we are so much alike...I just think you've got a little more room for storage than I have! LOL! Loved seeing your finds!
Hope you had a beautiful Mother's Day Deb...the vintage post cards you shared are precious!
Big Hugs,

you found lots of nice stuff. I love buttons and aprons. I've almost stopped going to yard sales, trying to stop cold turkey. Instead I've been taking stuff to the thrift store. I don't resale and we couldn't walk through our garage, now we have room for our bikes :)
