Last weekend's Finds

Hello Ladies!
We hope that you are enjoying your weekend! We had lots of fun last weekend and we wanted to show you our flea market finds!

I was beyond excited when I came across this collection of vintage Valentines! I couldn't get all of them because there were so many but I have plans to go back and buy them all!!

I have been in a cherry mood lately with my scrapbook pages and my Mom's crochet cherries so I was very happy to find this blue apron covered in flocked cherries!

My sweet Brother gave me this cute bunny to add to my vintage plastic toy collection. I mostly just collect the dogs but the bunny is so adorable too!

We have been slowly building a collection of linens and this cute one had to come home with us! I love the Scottie dog on the pitcher and cup.

Every now and then I run onto old gift seals. Mostly when I find them they are Christmas seals so I was happy to find these lovely flower ones. And of course vintage hankies are always a fun thing to collect!

It is so extremely rare that I see an apron pattern I could not believe my luck when the other day I found this pattern. It was the same flea market that I found my vintage Barbie box in. So I was on cloud nine by the time I walked out of the store. I had a vintage waste can that I found filled with this pattern, the vintage seals, a Gurley candle, and the Barbie box.

Here is the waste can I found to carry my happy finds home in!

Have a grand weekend, Lindsey and Twyla

Hello Girls!!!
Of course I love the Valentines and hankies. We went to some estate sales today and found MANY treasures.
Have a great weekend.

Cloud nine for sure, girl! The kitty/puppy card is so sweet! I hope there will be some cards left when you go back!

Flocked cherries? What a find!

Love the tiny Barbie doll waist on that apron model!

The weather looks pretty scray here this morning so I doubt we'll go treasure hunting...

Love the plastic bunny and the waste can. Great finds all round.
I went to a small flea market today and guess what I found? A 30 year old Sindy. I was over the moon. She was only £2. I could have jumped for joy. It's ages since I found a Sindy in perfect condition like that and she had darker hair which is rarer.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Hi Twyla & Lindsey! I love the waste can, and all the valentines and everything else you found!! I went out this weekend and only found two cups (I'll post them next week). I really only went to look because a friend wanted to go.....I seem to never hit the stores when they have new stuff come in...oh well, it was fun though. Have a nice Sunday, Hugs Jennifer

I like some vintage stuff that I can wash but old hankies I don't know. Who know who's buggies are on them.
