Happy Labor Day! I’m actually working for awhile today, but then I’m going to come home and make myself relax. Today I want to share a few things that I picked up from an estate sale last week! First up, a pair of mounted animal horns. The guy I bought them from asked me if I was going to make knives out of them. He said lots of people do that. I told him of course not, I’ll probably hang them in my dining room. He looked at me kinda funny. Anyway, I also snagged the two vintage brooches pictured beneath the horns. One is gold leaves and the other is a yellow fabric rose.
I love vintage Christmas ornaments, and I have a small collection of deer. So I was thrilled to find this sweet pair:
|Ok, this is really cool: I decided last week on my next Cooking Club theme. I’m hosting it the first week in November. My mother-in-law gave me the great idea to do an “Election Day,” theme since elections happen to fall in that week. So, how happy was I when I stumbled across a wad of small American flags?! $2 for 40 – not bad!|
Do you do estate sales? What have been some of your favorite finds?
