March Antique Fair

Some fun vintage finds from the antique fair in Tucson a couple of weeks ago.
Love the Gunsmoke cantaloupe crate, I have a small collection of wood crate signs on a wall in my kitchen and this one will be carefully taken apart and added.
Nice hand painted tole tray, old frame and some tatting, lace and a pretty tablecloth. Ceramic frog too, for the garden.

I have been looking for a birdcage like this for a while, found one!
The camp stools are for wool applique projects.
Old wood spools of thread, big old roll of jute twine, vintage glass stoppers for old glass bottles.

Just fun little things, I don't need more and I have been cutting way back on buying.
Thanks for stopping by!

Since I don't seem to have time to blog or even decorate the house for Christmas, and after seeing a friends post of her old toy truck hauling mini trees, I decided to go back and repost some decorating I did in December 2011.

Merry Christmas!

Today's Garage Sale Finds

I know, I have been neglecting this blog way too much. I seem to spend more time on Facebook because it's easier using my phone.
I unexpectedly found a garage sale close to home this morning and scored on a few things. Sorry my pictures are not the best. I was too sticky with this humidity and had very little patience after I got home to do a nice job.

My favorite find was this clock! I have been looking for a few years for one at a good price it this one was! It's 18"across.

You can't see the metal cowboys on horseback very well but I will be so glad I bought it when we move to Wyoming, fits well there! 
The old milk glass lamp is a big one, after it's cleaned up and I find the right shade I think it will look pretty good. A nice Melmac Bowl always comes in handy along with a child's clothes hanger and 2 sandbox shovels.
Old wood stools are great as plant stands!

I can never resist a crinoline if it's cheap and this pretty blue one was only $3!!!
Old suitcases have been a favorite of mine since I was a kid.
I'll come up with something for the 3 large silver plated ladles!

Don't hold your breath on me, it could be another 5 months before I do this again. 
I keep trying to do better but somehow it just doesn't happen!
Thanks for stopping by!
