Today's Estate Finds

 Have you EVER seen a GNOME Christmas blow mold?! I did today and he just had to come home with me. Not sure if I'll sell him or keep him. I also found some Christmas wrapping paper in the colors I'm going to decorate with this year: RED & WHITE with silver. It was only 50 cents for all 3 rolls! It was a digger sale!
They also had hankies. We went to TWO digger's sales today. Hankies from both sales! I've already washed them!

Very cool and big bread bowl is just perfect for some fall decor.  We only went to 2 sales. I went back to the first one and my daughter went with me. It was her FIRST TIME at an estate sale! She said it felt a little "creepy", but loved saving money.

Having a fun week ahead! Monday, helping at the Vintage Cottage, Tuesday, Doctor apt and then dealer work night at Auntie M's. Getting ready for the SALE that starts on Friday! Store wide sale!!!Wednesday I'm taking Mom to the Bachman Christmas Idea house! FUN and I'll take some photos to show you! Friday I'm working at the Vintage Cottage in Carver for their monthly sale! Come VISIT! I think a haircut is in order next Saturday!

On Friday I started making my Christmas cards. Photo to come.

Daughter and I also went shopping and I picked up a couple of Christmas gifts. I've started, how about YOU? Feels good.

Have a Blessed Sunday!
Warmly,
deb

Hi Deb, Yes I have started some shopping. I would like to finish early and enjoy the season without rushing around.
You sure found some great items. I have not seen the mold you speak of. I have that little recipe tin holder that was my mothers and has her original recipes inside. I cherish it.
Love the pretty hankies. Your color theme sounds so pretty and I have heard others doing this combo too. I think it sounds pretty and I may do a bit of this look too.
Your week sure sounds busy. Have fun and have a great rest of the weekend.
Thank you for stopping by and your kind comment.
Hugs

Chris bought me that gnome blow mold last Christmas. You need to keep him. I love the bunting that Erica bought from your booth. I'm definitely in the Christmas mood. You scored well today at your estate sale. Hugs.

Terra said...

I like your Santa gnome, tho I don't know what a blow mold is. You have a good start on Christmas shopping and decor.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I haven't started shopping yet, Deb, but I have made a couple of gifts already. I went to two estate sales on Thursday but only came home with a few crochet pieces. You found some great things.

Theresa said...

Beautiful finds! LOVE the hankies:) Have a blessed day dear Deb, HUGS!

ThrifterSisters said...

Oh yes, the shopping actually started a couple of weeks ago! Did you know that there is one less week between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year? That definitely stressed me out a little bit!

I have a wooden bowl very similar to the one you found. I put fake gourds in it during the fall. Its a great piece for decorating with!

Have a wonderful week~

Erica

Every time I see a hankie, I think of you. Think I will have to mail one to you someday if I should come upon a pretty one. I would love to exchange cards!

LOVE your hankies! I have a couple of Christmas gifts, but many more to get. I had never heard of Santa Gnome blow molds until last week, now you are the second one to mention them...something to keep my eye out for-they are cute!!!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Ooh, you found some goodies! I have started my Christmas shopping...one gift! But my Christmas cards have been printed, so I'm ready to go on those! Have fun at the Ideas House!

Blessed Serendipity said...

I love the gnome. Does he light up too? A good estate sale even a good digger sale does wonders for the junker in you (I love it). Love all your goodies.

Very nice items! Love those hankies! I've got my stocking gifts bought (over 50 of them). Starting soon on the larger gifts.

Debby said...

You are a busy girl....fun busy. Love that kind of busy. Love that gnome .
We found a couple gifts today. We went to a vendor show and we got a big book of bugs for our grandson that is always digging for bugs. Then we had lunch next to a toy store where I saw a great idea for my granddaughters. So we got their gift as well. So much to go but taking it slow.

NanaDiana said...

Great finds. No-I have have never seen a gnome blow mold before. He is just darling! Can't wait to see your cards. xo Diana

Patti said...

You are so lucky to find the little gnome! He is so cute! And, I like your fireplace mantle!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Great estate sale finds, I have not found hankies for a long time! I had so many at one time I was passing them up...Never again! Sounds like a great fun, but busy week. The Bachman house will be great, I can't wait for the pictures.

Oh your gnome is the cutest, you scored Deb! All the Christmas goodies are great and love the hankies. What is a diggers sale? I've never heard that name before.

Sweet bunting that Erica found in your booth. We all want to shop your booth, boo hoo. :) Pam

Robin Johnson said...

Great finds Deb! I adore those sweet little deer, they are fabulous. The hankies you found are also wonderful. I too found a couple while out last Friday. They have sweet Christmas images stitched on to them in red and white. Can't wait to figure out a way to use them.

Stacey Johnson said...

OK, my 11 year old son would go nuts for the gnome. To cute. My Mom had that recipe box that I now have. Good stuff!

Joy H said...

Love your Christmas banner and the hankies are so pretty too! Have a great week.

craftyles said...

Great finds. What a cute bunch of hankies. Glad you had fun with your daughter.

Libbie Doyle said...

Hey Deb...Her FIRST time? Are you sure she is yours :) You are the expert!!! SO I am sure you girls had fun...I have to smile & agree with her on the "little creepy" I always feel that way too but never knew the words for it ...I like her already !

My vote on the gnome is for KEEP :) ADORABLE! Fun too see all your goodies!!!!!

I'm glad Rocco has you as a friend! He's a lucky guy :) I'm sure he talked your ear off!!! Thanks for your sweetness Deb!

Van said...

That's a gorgeous assortment of Christmas goods you have there Deb, love it ! :D !

★Carol★ said...

I found one of those gnomes last year, and until then I never knew they existed either. Maybe they're rare, so I know I'm keeping mine!

Yes, please take pics at the Bachman House. I love all of the inspiration I get from them!

Scrap for Joy said...

I'm totally swooning over your hankies! I never seem to find them. When you go to Bachmans, do you see Albert the Elf with Santa? Albert (Kevin Dutcher) is my first cousin, once removed (my cousin's son) He just had a utube clip on Facebook of part of their act and it was so cute. I've never seen him perform.
Have a nice evening, Deb~
