A Few Finds and Sweet Pea

I took this photo today of Sweet Pea. Does she look like she is growing???
Treasures found today in the photo above. Only 1 garage sale and I went to 2 thrift stores. Guess folks are on vacation and not cleaning out their houses!!!


These 2 photos are from last weekend's estate sale finds.


Tomorrow I'll be heading to HQ to pick up my check and drop off things for the next sale. It is a JOB!!!
Not sure what the weekend plans are. Not much going on. The weather is either very Hot & Humid, cloudy/rainy and once in awhile...a nice summer day.
Hope all is well with you!
Warmly,
deb :)

Sweet Pea is just too cute!
I have found the thrift stores around here to be pretty picked over and bare this past week. Like you said....I guess everyone is vacationing and not cleaning out their houses!
Enjoy your weekend.

Looks like you did well, beautiful stuff but YES, I agree, not many Garage Sales right now.

What a Sweet Pea, I think you may be getting a cross look from her. Jane

Linda said...

I buy those ceramic Christmas Trees every chance I get (when they're a bargain). I put them in ever room during the holidays. Well, main rooms. I have 6 and 15 rooms so, still hunting. That's the best thing about our obsession....always something to hunt for.

Diane said...

I sure do think your Sweet Pea is a very handsome boy!
I just sold a White Ceramic Christmas Tree for $33 on E-bay. Great treasures oxox, Diane

Melinda Cornish said...

My grandma had Christmas trees just like those...it brings back some sweet memories....

NanE said...

Oh I am in love with that Sweet Pea! But then, I am a sucker for JRTs. My only little girl just had her 9th Birthday. She was not a cute puppy but she had grown into a beautiful dog.

Theresa said...

That Sweet Pea is just too darn precious and growing? Yes ma'am! Love your finds Deb, don't you just love to find Christmas stuff in 100 degree weather:)

Have a blessed day my friend! BIG HUGS!

Deb said...

What an adorable little dog! I love little dogs and have my own baby Chihuahua that runs me nuts with her energy! Too bad we can't can it.

Great stuff you found. Nothing better than the thrill of the hunt!

Margaret Cloud said...

Enjoyed looking at your finds. Sweet Pea does look a little bigger, it doesn't take animals long to grow. Have a nice weekend.

Ohhhhh, you have added a new family member. Sweet Pea is the perfect name for her. I just little black and white dogs (I have one perched in the wagon in my Header). : )
Have a great weekend.

Hi Deb! Oh, I love your adorable dog, Sweet Pea! And love your great "finds". I haven't seen many garage sales in my neck of the woods this summer, either, now that you mention it. (I live near St. Louis, Mo.) I think it's just been TOO hot and humid, or rainy, like the weather you're having. I like your blog!

Creative Breathing said...

Sweet Pea is just that! Oh those Christmas trees remind of the era when everyone had these in their windows. Such fun! Have a lovely weekend! Elizabeth

BEAR's Mom said...

hello again Deb!!!
you asked about the crocheted flowers ~ they are made by a good friend of mine...she doesn't blog or do etsy...she sells doilies and flowers to me @ $1 an inch diameter...those roses were 3 inches and cost me $3 each...she does any and all colors...she's amazing~ i wanted 2 crocheted bookmarks for a swap this week and sent her a picture of some online and the next day she had a 1/2 dozen for me to chose from...
BEAR says hi to Sweet Pea :D

Sweet pea is growing! Isn't it amazing how those sweet puppies grow into their feet! Lovely treasures and finds. Enjoy.

Shirl said...

Hello Deb, Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment. Cute post, Sweet Pea sure is adorable! Great finds. I hit a thrift store this week and got a few things to make into pincushions. Can't wait to get to them.

I know I'm not cleaning house! I had to get rid of a storage shed I've been renting for EIGHT years! I had a huge yard sale and every single thing that didn't sell went directly to Goodwill-Do Not Pass Go-Do Not Collect $200.

And your poochy looks a little bigger to me.

OMGosh she is cute!
thank you for sharing!

Miss Deb -
Sweet Pea is standing there posing and looking sooo sweet. How are the boys with her? Have they taken to her? As much as I wanted to,and for a lot of reasons, I wasn't able to keep the sweet little puppy. But for the time he was with us, he was pure joy! He never once wimpered or fussed. His little tail was always wagging.
Hugs,
♥ Toni

Sandi said...

Nice finds Deb!! Some days when I don't find anything I just want to knock on someones door and say, "Can I go through your attic"...lol!!
Happy week ahead!!
Blessings~

~~Carol~~ said...

Sweet Pea is so cute that I wouldn't be able to leave her home. I'd have to put her in my purse and take her wherever I go!
Great finds Deb! Garage saling has been so bad in my town that we've had to start going to sales in another town!
Happy Monday!

You got the magazine before I did. Just as well at least I slept last night, I am so wound up I don't know if I will tonight,this sure is a fun adventure! I knew it was going to be published, but you don't really believe it until it happens. Thank you for stopping by and sharing in my publishing joy!

I think Sweet Pea is growing a little bit...she's cute as can be :)
Loved seeing your finds...those Christmas Trees are awesome...someone in my family had one of those when I was growing up...they are especially pretty when they are lit up.
Hope you have a happy week, and stay cool...we know the only way we can do that is to stay in some air conditioning lol, which I am going to try and do :)
Big Hugs,
Queenie
