A Crown, 2 Swaps and Finds

I am QUEEN of my Home!!! Found this tiara today at an estate sale for only 6.00. It was a tad broken, however, handy hubby fixed it and of course I just had to show you! LOL!!! Feeling oh so pretty!

Kimberly does a Tuesday ATC swap and these are the ones she sent me. We did a Fall and Halloween one and she sent a cute little bag too. Thank you, Kimberly! I forgot to take photos of mine...she'll post about them so you can see them there.

I also did an altered altoid tin swap and my partner was Celia. She sent me the sweetest tin decorated as a pumpkin patch. Also some fun goodies inside the tin and the best smell sachet ever! Thank you, Celia!

Cute. I also forgot to take pictures of what I made and can check out her blog too.

Bought this today at an estate sale and it will go to the new shop/booth. (unless someone wants it).

Broken taira and awesome hat box.

Cool vintage scale and kitchen gadgets also for the new shop...(or you).

Another WONDERFUL fall day. This is the 6th day in the 80's...AWESOME!! I'm trying to enjoy everyday cause you know how l-o-n-g the winters are here!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

So cute in your tiara!! I have one from my high school prom stashed away in a box somewhere in this house. I should find it for my granddaughter and great nieces to play with when they come for Thanksgiving. Thanks for the idea!!

How cute are you? Love the tiara (I usually wear mine on the inside, aka in my mind).

The hat box is bringing back memories for me. When Rosedale Mall opened (Roseville, MN) one of the first stores was Young Quinlan. At the time, they were the only store besides the two anchors to have two stories, an escalator and an elevator. My grandmother was in charge of the men's department until her death. I haven't thought about that in years until seeing the box. Great find!

Barbara said...

Cool hatbox, and the tiara is sooo you!

Pink Roses and Teacups said...

Hi Deb! You look so purty in that tiara! Love the pumpkin swaps, and that altoid tin is so cute too. I have seen many creative uses for those. I wonder if the altoid companies know all the creative things we do with them lol. The craft stores should make them plain for us, so we can decorate away!


Lynn said...

You look so good wearing the tiara and we are the Queen of our home:O) Right LOL
I love the goodies you got in your swap!! Super fun goodies.
Have a wonderful week!

That tiara was made for you!! We have one here, that my daughter used to wear in dance competitions. Love the little tree!!! I wish you lived near me so I could come and visit your store.

You look beautiful in your tiara, Deb! Love your new header. That Altoid tin pumpkin patch is adorable!

Your friend,

Faye ~ Wild Rose Vintage said...

I noticed the tiara immediately!!! Cute! You found some great stuff, I remember the woman across the street, when I was little, made those trees. I think we had one. Isn't this weather perfect!!! I'd like to keep it as long as possible.

Faye ~ Wild Rose Vintage said...

Deb, I get a kick out of that tiara every time I see you on my comments!!! It's just so darn cute!!
Just had to come back and comment again...

Cheryl said...

Linda said...

you look so cute in the tiara! I love the fall stuff (christmas-not so much-don't want to think about winter). Your blog is so lovely!!!

Donna Lynn said...

Great finds Deb! I adore your crown, and after all you are the queen of the garage sale finds!

Can you believe I finally did a post?! It is a miracle, I am hoping to get back on track now that things have settled down (fingers and toes crossed for sure!)

I love that ceramic Christmas tree. My grandparents had one like that when I was younger. I found one at a garage sale a few years ago and snapped it up. Unfortunately, mine doesn't have all of it's little plastic pieces, so I'm always on the lookout for more more them.

Nance said...

if you still have the ceramic Christmas tree, I am interested. What are you asking for it? Price plus shipping? Just found your site today. I'll be back. If you have the tree for sale, I am at thank you!
