Estate Finds

Here is what I picked up at that estate sale I told you about earlier this week. I told you it was just a few little things. Have you ever played Master Mind? It is HARD! I got it mostly because I knew Travis would like playing it with some of our friends. 
Teeny little kokeshi doll that I found in the basement. Also a sweet tin, and an awesome pin.
I was really excited to find this whole box of millinery birds! I've been looking for some to do something like this! I have the perfect vase already, now I just need the perfect branches!
So cute. There was a funny little dog made out of a nut hidden in the bottom of the box.
There were SO MANY photo albums. I only let myself bring home four. They all had a page like this in the front. Such a weird hodge podge of images. I like the mole at the bottom.
Two I picked because of the cat photos. The albums span the home owners who life so there are a few different cats, but all captured lovingly. I really love that. One of my favorites is the tortie on the chair.
And this grey one.
I think that boy is the home owner.
I love this strange grouping of photos. The post card, the landscapes, and that bear.
There are quite a few photos of statues/art. I think they are really beautiful. Especially all the statues lined up on the table like that.
This book had quite a few large scale photos. There is one album full of "hippie" pictures that I somehow forgot to take pictures of? Oops!
This little grouping is from another sale that was a few blocks from my house. They didn't have tons of stuff, but I found a few treasures. The bamboo cups are milk glass, which I can almost never resist. The tree topper is silly and I just couldn't leave her behind. 
These little dogs are so cute. They were in the listing, and I kind of couldn't believe they were still there on day too. I guess there weren't many kistch hunters at the sale.
And I can NEVER resist a Santa. Especially a handmade one with shiny eyes!
I'm going to try and resist any sales AND the flea market this weekend, since we're going to the world's longest yard sale next week, BUT I don't know if I'll make it. Haha. Wish me luck.


  1. Those photo albums are brilliant! Such lovely memories inside them too!

  2. The birds are great! They'll be perfect! My favorite is that "SAVE THE UNICORN" button! haha

  3. Some great finds, the kokechi doll is beautiful and i love the plan you have for the birds x

  4. I have never found an album with pictures in it - neat!!

  5. Great finds! The covers of those albums are pretty cute too. :)

  6. Of course I'm in love with the photo album. But that Save The Unicorn pin is pretty awesome too.

  7. The birds are so cute! I found these little glass ones once.. love them!

  8. funny story about mastermind: i used to play it with my stepdad all the time. i always lost. one night, i had figured out some sort of scheme where i hid one of the pieces in my mouth. it seemed right at the time, i guess. we were watching the simpsons and i started laughing (forgetting that the piece was hidden in my cheek) and i swallowed it. i quickly dismissed my self to the bathroom and tried to give myself the heimlich maneuver against the sink, knowing that it totally wasn't coming back out. so, yeah. i have a plastic game piece rotting away in my stomach somewhere...

    On an unrelated note: I love those photos albums.

    1. hahah! i'm trying to think HOW that would help you with the game! that is such a good story!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment!
