anyway, here are some of the treasures we picked up.
travis has been wanting to start a collection (no surprise pretty much all the collections in the house are mine) and we talked about it and decided that vintage first aid/medical stuff was something we both liked. here are two of the first 3 things he has found! he also has a really cute little red cross pin. i want to find a pretty mid-century hutch to display it in.
first framed paint-by-number i've found at the goodwill outlet. i was pretty excited! i got that old box for a buck, not sure what i'm going to do with it yet. some soup bowls. some pretty hankies.
cute polka dot scarf. enamel flower. cute sweater clips! mushroom!
some dogs with japan stamped on the bottom. i tried to find some information about these online but couldn't. i had the one on the left before. i love the sweet little pink flowers on their chests.
a lot of this is for our wild west themed guest room that is in the works. i love the globe with the woodgrain pattern. the how to draw horses book has really beautiful color images inside. and lookit those dog cards! i got a cute set of animal rummy cards that didn't make it into a picture.
vintage feather bird! i saw this collection on a blog and totally flipped out! i've been on the lookout ever since and this is the first one i've found.
cute canister. a book i loved as a child. some tiny bone china animals (from a super fancy/expensive estate sale). doggie paint by number. kitty!
i'm really excited about that kitty because the weekend before i saw one at the fancy estate sale, but it was priced 20 bucks. then i found this one (and the color is better!) for only 3! i want to put something silly in it, like a long succulent.
christmas stuff!!!! my favorite!!!! that little tablecloth is so perfect. i might cut a slit in it and make it my tree skirt. i've been looking for a cute one and this one is so lovely! (and was only 50 cents!)
craft supplies! and some little measuring cups (i love cooking with those). i got all those knitting needles for 2 bucks! exciting because i've been collecting yarn at sales but didn't want to invest in needles in case i sucked at it.
aaaaaand some knitted hangers! so granny! so awesome! and another junior delux edition book. i'm going to post my collect of these later this week. i love them!
