I almost screamed when I walked into the bathroom and saw this poodle bottle cover. I have wanted one ever since Heidi did a post about them. There was so much knitted kitsch in the house! In the bathroom alone there was this poodle, two of those lady toilet paper covers, an owl, and a few long stripes of knitted bows. I only got this guy. I can't decide where to put it, I need it to be somewhere that I will see it every single day!
A got a good haul of vintage Christmas! Most of this was in a little attic space above the garage. The people running the sale seemed to think no one would want that stuff, so they made me a good deal. As is, two bucks for everything! There was actually more that I left because I was sure they were going to charge me more. Oh well, not like I really NEED anymore Christmas stuff.
I've been on the lookout for spun cotton head things so I was so happy to find that angel! It and the santa heads with the huge beards were under a bunch of zippers in a huge box of craft stuff. One of the women running the sale was like "There is so much craft stuff here, but we didn't find many completed crafts" and I kind of wanted to say "Uhhhhh did you see all the amazing crafts ALL OVER THE HOUSE?"
Look! Another one of those cats with a paper and pencil! I just need one more and it is officially a collection! These trivets are really cool, I hadn't seen any like them before.
Oh lordy, just LOOK at these pot holders! There was a bin full! I just had to pick out my favorites because they were all awesome! Jamie at Owl Really actually picked up some of the other ones! These are really too pretty to use. I'm not sure what I'll do with them.
The reason I went to the sale in the first place was because of a picture they posted of a little shadow box filled with little figures. When I walked in the shelfs were almost empty and I was bummed. But it turns out they had put all the tiny stuff in bags and put them in the garage. Of course the bags had half good stuff and half crap per bag. I might have sweet talked my way into getting to make my own bag. Haha. Here is all the cute woodland stuff I got! I love the deer!
Bottom of the squirrel. Anges and Ethel! Agnes owned the house, and Ethel was her friend. I'll tell you more about that tomorrow.
Of course I found some empty 8mm reels for a steal! I don't really need more, but I couldn't resist. They had a reel vault too that I wish I would have gotten. I wonder what happened to her movies. I KNOW she had some (i bought her travel scrapbooks and they are incredible, wait until you see!)
