A vintage card game in an adorable shape......
combined with my old stamp set these will be perfect place cards for a party.
An old book
....filled with all kinds of adorable pictures and sayings just waiting to be framed!!
A very old tiny tea set with plates.
Did I mention I'm hosting a teeny tiny tea-party next week?
I just found these today! What timing!
Oh, and that tray? TJ Maxx, 8 bucks. I couldn't help it.
There was only one and it was screaming my name.
Vintage ribbon etc.
Addie found 2 plastic bins chock full of brand new (but quite old) seam tape and ribbon for $2.
Unfortunately, they reeked of smoke, so we all spent a whole afternoon unwrapping them, sorting them, and washing them. After finding them totally tangled up in the wash, we spent the rest of the evening trying to untangle our treasure. Lots of hard work, but I think the kids thought it was fun. These are just some of my faves I was able to salvage. Perfect to tie around napkins or for the finishing touch on a cellophane bag of party favors.
This adorable little afghan was 50 cents!
Looks like it was made for the back of my big chair.
I got LOTS of homeschool books and brand new scrapbooking supplies for 50 cents a piece or less!
Aaaaah, Cath Kidston!
As you can probably tell, this stationary and notecard set was far from cheap,
but my incredibly generous and thoughtful sister-in-law, Tonya, sent me these after spending the weekend with us. (Note to self: post pictures of our fabulous weekend)
What a gem.
And lastly, I think I'll post this picture Josie took of me in my new $10 apron (TJ Maxx).
I've been wanting an apron for quite some time, and I must say it came in very handy as we made tiny sugar cookies for the teeny tiny tea party......while I was on the induction phase of Atkins! I didn't cheat a bit......thanks to my apron I was able to wipe the frosting off my fingers instead of licking it.
Willpower. That's my middle name.
