Weekend Finds & Winner

 Looky!!! I found these very pretty blue rose plates. They were in the garage! Weird! Some have nicks and some "stain" around the edges. However, there are enough for 2! I've already been using the square ones. I've decided that I'm going to USE the vintage plates. Duh...they do no good sitting in the china cabinet! The linens are from the same sale.

These are from a day 2 of a 4 day sale. 30% off on day 2. (oops, the Christmas cards are from the lst sale) The Santa is from the 40's and he is musical!  Very fun graphics in the books.

Grandgirl has fast pitch tourney all weekend. With the rain on one day, they just shorten the time to play. I went yesterday and haven't heard how she did today.

It's going to be a quick week. Having a family reunion up in the Brainerd area on Saturday. I'll have to check out the local antique shops. The reunion is my dad's side. My dad passed away 17 years ago. There were 11 siblings. I have only 1 uncle left on this side and 1 auntie on my mom's side.

OKAY, the person receiving the little package of treasures IS: ....MELISSA at Melissa's Antiques. Please email me your information at   THANK YOU!

Since I'm "cleaning" the house for the wedding...another giveaway will be coming up! I'm thinking it may be something "PINK" or maybe "BLUE"...LOL!!!

Have a wonderful 4th Of July!!!

I love Brainard, my friend has a cabin on Pelican Lake and we have done a lot of antiquing in the area. She used to drag me to a ton of little stores up there. I say use the good china, I use mine for everyday...Why not! Have a great week!

LOVE the blue plates. Looks like you found a lot of neat stuff. I have to avoid such sales.........don't need anymore stuff and I don't have a store.......but........I am still looking forward to going to a flea market just to look!
