Color My World

Mom and I had a fun filled day yesterday, we really packed in a lot in spite of getting a late start. Mom had to go to a funeral yesterday morning so we did not get out and about until around noon. My cousin Peg was in town for the weekend to participate in a craft show in Thomson GA, so mom and I had plans to go out and see her and check out the craft show. But first we were going to stop at an estate sale that just happened to be in Thomson (how convenient). It was the last day of the sale and we got there about 3 hours before the sale was ending. Everything was half price (and that's the beauty of going on the last day). I picked up some great things and so did mom. Here are a few of my goodies.

Two old hat/coat racks

Isn't the base beautiful

I love the rustiness of it!

I kept this one and gave the other one to my brother

Our view on the way home (we were in mom's car)

Stunning glass compote (marked as Fostoria - but I'm not sure)

Really can't capture the beauty in a photo

Lovely old books

Vintage tablecloth

Small Reed and Barton Mirror

I dug this little guy out of the trash (he was free)

Before mom and I left yesterday my brother called me to tell me that he had picked up some stuff for me at the Flea Market that morning. Vintage Christmas in original boxes! I couldn't wait to get to his house to check it out. I was not disappointed. With that in mind while I was at the estate sale I wanted to return the favor. I knew he had been looking for an old hat/coat rack. So lucky for me I found the two. One for me and one to give to him. Here are the vintage Christmas goodies he picked up for me.

A Color Wheel - For my Vintage Tree

My heart skipped a beat when he pulled these out!

I love these bells

I had never seen one of these before

It's gorgeous and the tone of the bell ringing is beautiful.

Relco candle holder

Aren't they sweet.

Jolly old Saint Nick

My brother was equally as happy with his new hat/coat rack. What a great day!

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend and found lots of vintage goodness.
