Happy Sunday everyone. I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. Josh took Noah on a movie date, Hayden is napping, and I have the quiet house all to myself. Ahhh, paradise. Anyway, this past Friday I had the pleasure of spending some rare kid-free time with my close friend Kelly (aka Bubba-loo photography). We saw the movie "The Vow" together (which was a super cute chick flick) and then she took me to this awesome estate sale place that she frequents. I think what they do is take all of the leftover junk that doesn't sell at estate sales and sell it out of this big junky type warehouse place. Needless to say, there is a definite mix of pure trash and awesome treasures there. Just my kind of place. I came away with a few "smalls,"  and it felt great to thrift. If I haven't mentioned it before, I have been in a thrifty rut lately.

I got 2 beautiful vintage sheets to make some pretty buntings with:

I got an awesome milk glass batter bowl and a pretty footed plate (hard to see the footed part in the pic). I'm a sucker for anything milk glass.
Of course I had to take home this sweet little swan. I have been very picky about my swans lately :)
And I found a pretty vintage book that has just the perfect "old" looking pages for my many book page projects :)
I scored everything, the 2 sheets, bowl, plate, swan, & book all for $8. Sweet :) I can't wait to go back there again to see what else I can find!
Happy day to you all :)


  1. ooooh those sheets are SO pretty! i love the bowl, too! :) great finds! can't wait to do some thrifting in may! :)

  2. Such great finds!!!! I never find anything. Sad face :( Love love love the vintage sheets! Can't wait to see the bunting!

  3. Totally would have bought the same exact things!! Of course the swan I would mail to you ;)

  4. What a great way to spend the afternoon! Did you blubber in The Vow? It looks like that kind of movie.

    I'm *dying* over that milk glass batter bowl. I didn't even know that style came in milk glass--it's gorgeous!!!

  6. All I have to say is S to the W to the AN.

    I LOVE the milk glass plate and bowl!

  7. LOVED hanging out with you the other day:) I seriously can't remember a time when we had a day w/out kids! I so enjoyed 'rummaging' w/ you! You always seem to find the hidden 'treasures'! Can't wait to see what you make out of those sheets! We will have to make it a monthly tradition for sure! Love ya lots!! xoxo

  8. Oh, love that milk glass!!! I have some that I was going to put in my shop, but it's so darn heavy, the shipping would cost more than the actual piece!!

  9. Vintage sheets and milk glass...nothing could be better!!!

  10. I love that book!!! It's the perfect vintage book!



I think I'm a comment-a-holic :)
