Weekend Finds

I'll start with my favorite finds from this weekend, a collection of children’s books dating back to 1896 and 1905. I had heard about an estate sale in a town that was a little over an hour away and rushed over because they were reported to have tables of ironstone, excited beyond belief to add to my stash. The ironstone was beautiful... and utterly out of my price point. Fortunately, I was able to comfort myself with a small horde of children’s books, yay!

On my way home I stopped at a few yard sales, something I rarely do... I just don't have the patience to stop 20 different times for baby clothes and modern household stuff. The first sale I stopped at was filled with the typical yardsale suspects... cookbooks from the 90s, tools and a couple of broken chairs. Then I spotted it... a composition dolly. I approached slowly so as to not draw attention to myself, checking the state of disrepair she was in and with trembling hands I nabbed her... only THREE DOLLARS! Granted, she looks as though she must have a splitting headache from her head injury, but with a cute little bonnet one will never know!

And one last picture with a few more finds I procured this weekend, a little glass jar for honey, a tiny tin of nutmeg and a pewter spoon to spruce up my pie safe!
