"I fell off the Wagon"...

YES... I fell off the "no spending" wagon today... and I enjoyed it! I haven't been to an estate sale since Nov! This pitcher and chamber pot were 1/2 off and don't you just LOVE the patina!!??

More goodies...head vase, birthday girl and the sweetest bluebird cup and saucer

Love old movies and hankies are always a win. Birdie cookie cutter only 1.00

... and all of these were a bargain too! Notice the "Witch" needles...very cool!



13 years ago our Jack Russell, Mercedes had 6 puppies. 3 boys and 3 girls. This is Mack from the litter. He is first born and today is his birthday! He wasn't fond of the hat...he LOVED his beef bone and the other treats that he had today. He is going blind and his hearing isn't 100% ... and he is a "tad" crabby... hey, I'm a "tad" crabby once in awhile too and I'm not as old as he is ~
Guess what...it's Snowing...better than the COLD that is coming next week.
Happy Weekend!
Warmly,
deb

Looks like it was a good day to "fall off the wagon." Love all the stuff you were able to buy. Oh, the hat looks so cute on doggie.

Have a fun weekend.

I can't remember the last time I have been to an estate sale. That vase was quite the find, I would be crazy about the buttons. Oh no, if you say cold in Minnesota, that is really bad, and really cold!

Are you sure that you were ever on that wagon.....just saying, hah.
The birthday boy doesn't look too pleased. Happy Birthday sweet boy.
I heard on TV that yesterday it snowed in 49 states......can that be true?

Love your goodies - especially that bunch of buttons and notions! You just can't find stuff like that down here, not sure why! I'm going thrifting tomorrow, let's see if I find any treasures! Blessings, Becky

My New Year resolution is to not go to estate sales and garage sales or even thrift stores for 6 months but to think of all those goodies not being found is going to be so hard! I'm trying to save money for my oldest daughters wedding so I will just have to "shop" my stash from the past sales and unearth treasures I already own. Willpower to the MAX is needed here!

Pearl said...

peek~a~booooo!

thought i'd see if i still know how to leave a comment... surprising you with one will be the extra bonus!

how fun to see some of your treasures... i'm loving the blue satin drawer organizer, and hankies; both are difficult to find where i live. of course i adore your button haul! i noticed the nice key tucked in with them, and i'm curious if that's a teenie goldfish barette swimming near the top?!? my favorite goodie, though, has to be the "witch pins"... they're fabulous!

mack looks so "kissable" in his festive party hat... cocoa and i send our belated happy birthday wishes to him... hope he had a fun day!

please stay safe and keep warm... hopefully spring will arrive early... talk with you soon...

~blessings~

Deb said...

NanE said...

Deb, what great finds! Can you believe I have never been to an estate sale! I don't even know how to find one and that's probably a good thing because I would get into serious trouble if I did! Love that head vase!
Happy Birthday to Mack, yea, I don't think he likes the hat. My JR loves to get dressed up but our Border Collie, nope! Have a great week, hugs and blessings, Nan

It's so hard to stay on that wagon isn't it??? That fall definately paid of for you Deb as you found some awesome new treasures. Congrats on your lucky new finds!!

Have a great week and stay warm. It's gonna be a COLD one this week.

Take care.

I probably would have jumped off a moving 'no spending' wagon for these treasures! :-) Not much happening in the world of estate sales where I live ... just counting the days until yard sale season.

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Yep, that does not look like a happy Birthday boy LOL Yep, from now on I am going with my gut, no more brown furniture in my shabby little booth!
