Fun Finds

Early this week I saw this antique picture of babies at Goodwill, didn't buy it... Went to a garage sale Friday {Thanks, Tina W.} and stumbled upon 1930's wooden baby beads and wooden rattle, ya'll know how much I LOVE vintage toys right?? I paid a dollar for both toys, called my mom, she ran back to Goodwill for me, and they still had the baby picture, she bought it, $3.00! This will be on a shelf in the soon to be playroom.

Then this morning went to a huge block sale with my parents and found this vintage metal top.
.50 cents

Also found this cool diner thingy, my kids would LOVE if I actually took meal orders, I just couldn't resist it's cuteness.
$1.50

a HUGE old milk can.
$3.00

An egg basket, ready for Pico Pica to fill...
$1.00

My parents found these keys.
.50 cents

a cute plate on a metal stand
$1.00
I got this quilted purse.
$2.00

See my newly added key
{it was wood, I spray painted it aqua}
$1.25

Wow, you definitely did have some good finds this week! That metal order thingy would be cute to hang messages or reminders on in the kitchen as opposed to my method of sticky notes on the counter. Have a great weekend. Jackie

The order thing would be great to attach cards to - Birthday cards, Get Well cards, Christmas cards, etc. You could add extra little clips in between the existing ones, with the added on ones facing up.
Maybe it's in part due to being a brand new grandma, but lately all of those old toys and children things have really been catching my eye. YOu nabbed some great ones ;-}
