Such very nice finds but I love the Christmas list box!


Really good finds. People in this part of the country don't keep as many old things. We don't have basements or cellars and not very large attics. Things ruin pretty fast in sheds.
Glad you had fun, good luck tomorrow!!


I'll say! More great things to add to your collections. I think the horse bookends are extra special. Such fun to shop vicariously through you. Elizabeth


So, I open my email and see an unfamiliar return address and the subject says, "getting dirty and loving it". Hmmm, I ask my daughter, should I open it or do you think not? Hmmm, I finally said, I am just too curious...ha! Glad it was from you.

Love the little pop up Santa!


Hi Laurie, I'm glad you found some
"goodies" at the estate sale.
I've never been to an estate sale,
just antique stores and the famous
Brimfield show in Massachusetts.
I was out and about today and
saw a big sign that said:
Estate Sale! I immediately thought,
"Oh, Laurie should be here for this". : )
I was in a rush, so I didn't have
a chance to check it out.
Have a fun weekend.

Oh great finds there Laurie. That's so funny about you out there in your PJ's.


I thought of you today as I passed an estate sale with long lines of people outside. I thought of you and took an extra look around to see if I could spot you! Then I thought of myself and despite my desire to rummage around someone else's house, I really didn't want to get out and deal with all those people! Guess I don't have the right constitution!!


I'm already thinking that Snickers box is the perfect Halloween orange.


Awesome finds! Love that garland, too.


Love the garland! And this will come as no surprise to you...I too have a collection of Christmas card list tins. I love the graphics. I am amazed at how many of the same things we collect.


Love those horse bookends! I love that type of thing - a children's bookend with that kind of graphic.


I love the pop up Santa and the Snickers box. Was it a special Halloween box with maybe specially wrapped candy, do you think? Next time you run out in your jammies to sign up for a sale, maybe you should wear one of your great disguises -- hat, cool glasses etc. Neighbors sitting at their kitchen tables having a cup of jo would have something to talk about all morning. Thanks for being you, Janet
