A few of us bees headed out to an estate sale this weekend! I didn't make it the first day to the sale, but Worker Bee and I went on Saturday and then Sewing Bee and I returned today to see if there were more treasures to be had.
And, buzz, buzz, buzz – there were!
My vintage bee antenna went off over this cute rolling pin. Not in perfect condition (some chips on the end of one of the handles) but I LOVED the color!
I don't know if that cork will come out, but it is just so great!
Then I found three of these jam jars on Saturday and three more today! I love them for candles but they would be cute for desserts or small sides dishes.
For $1 I got this collection of records. I didn't buy it for the records but for the folio. Won't this make a great 4th of July decoration?
Love those little stars!
I also got a ton of linens - from vintage sheets to tablecloths, to hankies to dish towels. I need to wash them up and decide what to do with them too. You know I really want to learn how to sew better this summer and these might make some darling little buntings or pillows. Or something else? Do you have any crafty ideas?
Found some sweet chintz tea mugs. (These might head for my etsy shop - have to think about it.)
And then this cute little purple glass ink bottle. (At least I think it's an ink bottle.)
yes a pause would be appropriate here........
you might want to wait with bated breath.....
A box of vintage Christmas ornaments!!!
With vintage Christmas light bulbs as a bonus!
(should I tell you how much I paid for them? probably not, it might make you cry)
I can't wait to see if I have enough to make one of these beauties....
Thanks so much for buzzing by for a visit.
It's turned gray here again and rain is hoped for by the end of the week. Sure hope we get it because we need it. Next weekend I have to work in my kitchen garden or I won't have fresh herbs and veggies this year.
Trying a new recipe tonight.....an onion tart with beef and blue cheese that I found in a magazine. (I'm a huge fan of blue cheese.) Doesn't that sound yummy? (Worker Bee isn't sure, so I'll let you know how it goes.)
Must work on report cards too! Those go home on Friday, so I'll be a bit busy!
It was a treat to see you!
