Bird bath, buttons and finds


Went to a estate sale down the block and they had this birdbath for sale. It's pretty big and HEAVY! 3 pieces to it! MINE for the price of $30.00 and now sits in front of my home waiting for the birds to enjoy!
 Hubby and I went to a nice PACKED sale on Thursday! Found me some buttons :)  I haven't seen any for awhile, so this was a good find. A lady found a laundry basket of them! Lots of people "digging" for treasures! It was a pretty good sale!
Rained on and off today :(  Tired of it! Shouldn't complain! My bridal bushes are getting ready to bloom as well as my irises and peonies!

Still can't find the spell check on the dashboard of blogger....weird! So, forgive my spelling errors!

Next week is going to be BUSY! Monday is my duty day at Auntie M's, Tuesday making a post type card for the In-Laws big anniversary later this month, laundry mat to wash some rugs and bed linens, Grandgirls last day of school is Thursday! My Mom's birthday on Friday, Plus, it's hubby's first full week of working full time. He has "school" this week and then starts driving the 10th...and speaking of the 10th, that is when Sharon of My Vintage Studio is coming for a visit! I'm hoping that the weather will be perfect for her visit! No rain, just sunshine and blues skies, please!

Hoping all is well with you my freinds!
Warmly,
deb

Did you find all those goodies this weekend? Oh my! We have a bi-weekly swapmeet here in our mountain town - and it's slim pickins. But, today I found two vintage sewing baskets! But, no buttons, LOL! Good thing I have plenty! I love your birdbath - and I love seeing what goodies you get every weekend. Amazing!

I was at an antique show today and so several of those bird baths for waaaaaaaaaaaaay more than you paid! What a score & I'll bet it looks amazing in your yard.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

Great birdbath! Sales are hit and miss here. I hit an estate sale last weekend that had some great stuff but higher priced.

Your bird bath is amazing. Chris would have snatched that up for our shade garden. What a great find. Enjoy your busy week. Happy June!

Scrap for Joy said...

Your birdbath is awesome! Don't you just want to do a happy dance when you get a great bargain like that? I always have to enlarge the pics and look at your amazing finds. The buttons are beautiful and I love the belt buckle with the red on it....yummy!

Whew, you've got a busy week, Deb! It's all good busy, though. : ) What a great find on the bird bath. I keep thinking of getting one for here {or at least some kind of statuary} to fill in our condo beds. They make for nice features in a garden.

Susie said...

You sound as if a nice time is ahead even if it's busy time. Love your treasures. xoxo,Susie

Sounds like you have busy but fun times coming! Love the birdbath, got ours the same way and the birds use the heck out of it. Caught the deer drinking out of it too. I was also very happy to find some buttons, hardly ever find them! You got some cute, cute things. Have a great week!

Faye said...

Oh I love the bird bath, I sort of kick myself for not buying a really old one last spring but it cost WAY more than that so I didn't. You did well! It's sunny today...what's that all about!! :) I'm going to mow the long tall grass today...finally!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Your bird bath is awesome and you'll really love watching the birds this summer. Love your finds...I spot some pixies in there! That's what I get excited about! Hugs!

ImagiMeri said...

I like the look of your blog now. I know I should clean mine up, but I'm just a junkie person I guess. I love all the goodies you found, and you're right, it's hard to find good buttons anymore........lucky you.

We had a fairly wet winter here, but I'm missing some rain about now, especially while were at 110 degrees.

Hugs,
Meri

Deb,
That birdbath was a steal. How beautiful. I just saw one almost identical in the garden shop near my home and it was $300 so you got a great deal on that. Enjoy it along with the birds!!!!
