Newest Finds

I'll be leaving in about 3 hours to go pick up my boys 
from their visit to California to see my parents.
I haven't gone to bed yet...good thing the hubby is driving!
Still, I'll keep it short and sweet.
(At least, that's the plan.)

Beginning with my hoarder items.

"Hoarder items" are what I term those items that are so marvelously cheap
and so enticing they can't be left behind.
The sort of things that can easy get out of hand, because there's only so many
uses for such things...
but I'm not there yet ;)

Some of what I found this past week:
a folding ruler, some old dominoes, and a random little collection of animals.

The animals, at 25c for all, is the "hoarder item."
But really, who could leave such treasure behind? :)

The same goes with this vintage tinsel, at 10c.
With the illustrations on the back, it was too cute and cheap to leave.

Another hoarder item.
These are vintage napkin rings.
I mean, what am I going to do with them---? 
But they're cute.

This Good Housekeeping Book is from the 40's.
I love the pictures inside. 

I always like these vintage French canister jars.
I'm also a little gaga for apothecary jars.

Some cute silhouette napkins, 4 altogether.

Something about this book called to me.
(Okay that was bad.)

I was happy to find a first edition of this classic book
at a church rummage sale.
I gave it to my husband.

This angel is so cute
and the painting and artwork on her is beautiful.

We're headed to kitschy-land now...

A super-neon, super-groovy oven mitt.

Some more kitschy brightness.

(Incidentally, I think reading this super-adorable and fun blog
is making me crave more bright cheerful vintage. 
I love Danielle's style!)

This pillow seemed chevron-ish to me,
and loved the bright colors.

A sweet plate.
And it was taken on my favorite find of the week!

A little, bright blue nightstand.

Here's what I love about it:

I've been looking for one sporadically,
so that I could take photos of my shop items on it.
Something about this just stood out.
(Hmmm, maybe the insanely blue color?)

I was going to paint it a more neutral color,
but for now I think I'll leave it as is...

I like it.

Hope you have a great start to your week!

Good Monday afternoon to you Marty,
The boys will be so excited to see you - probably as excited as you will be to see them - there will be so much to tell their Mom:)!
