Back to Normal

Wow, I haven't written a post since January! Not because I didn't want to but because work takes over my life this time of year. We had an exciting finish to our little golf Tournament here and I was thrilled to see Adam Scott of Australia don the Green Jacket. I am also just as thrilled that it is behind me and my life can return to normal (at least for the next 6 months).

After working long, long days for months I actually got to take a day off on Friday and of course I went junking. There was an estate sale just down the road but I didn't have much luck there, picked up a box of vintage costume patterns, some fabric and a shepherds hook.

On Saturday I met Mom at a Church Sale and had much better luck. You just can't beat the prices at these sales (I don't think I even spent $20). I found some old paper mache Easter eggs. They are marked "made in Western Germany" and "made in German Democratic Republic" which I would like to say makes them valuable but unfortunately that is not the case. If you ever come across one of these eggs and it is marked "German" that would be the valuable one. I still love these old candy containers and one of them has some pretty paper lace on the inside. I also found tons of linens that I didn't need but bought them anyway! I had a couple of bags full when I got home. Also picked up some old cook books, an adorable little vintage ice pick, FB Rogers sliver plate napkin rings, a nice brand new pair of garden gloves, some vintage cocktail napkins to add to my collection and some old sewing books and patterns.

On another note, we celebrated the Red Headed Girls Birthday on Saturday at Steed Dairy Farm and I thought I would share a couple of pictures of the cowgirls.


It's been a wonderful weekend, I hope yours has been as well!

  1. Welcome back Verna! GORGEOUS finds!! My oldest son has bright orange/red hair just like those sweet girls.

  2. Goodness, the girls are just adorable! They look so precious in their cowgirl boots!

    You came back with a bang, Verna! You found some wonderful things. I'm hoping to find one or two really good sales this year since I am supposed to be more mindful of what I bring home. (We'll see how that works out.)

    Good information about the paper eggs. I'll be sure to look for German on any I might find.

  3. The girls are so cute. Love that red hair. You got some great stuff at the rummage sale. Welcome back to your blog.


  4. Wow I love their red hair. They are just adorable. Welcome back.

  5. I liked the linens you got at the sale ans I use to have some of those eggs and sold them years ago in a yard sale

    aren't those little red headed girls cute?

    i was reading an old post I did about Savannah Georgia and you mentioned you lived 2 hours from Savannah ? I want to go back this fall again

  6. What charming photos of the girls, and what a delightful place to celebrate. I was glad to see your post I always enjoy your thrifty finds.

  7. I don't post much during the first quarter, either, because it's such a crazy time at work. Love your vintage finds. I have a few of those vintage paper eggs and always enjoy getting them out for Easter. Wow, are the girls ever adorable! Those pictures really put a smile on my face.
