July 16, 2010



I hope some of your determination rubs off on me! It has been pretty slim pickings around here lately too! Looks like you got some great treasures! Happy Weekend!!


Well, that determination paid off! Everything that you found is so wonderful. I love that even your storage solutions are vintage!

Have a wonderful weekend-- I'll be sewing a little somethin' to finish a little somethin'. Yes, I am a tease! (And I know I will never live this fiasco down!)



You did good:) Love the turquoise garland!! Have a great weekend:)


Love the bats, those are just so darn cute and different! Can't wait to see where they end up hanging around at!

Looks like you have a great start to the weekend and have been back in the dahlia patch as well :)


Hi Laurie, You find the greatest
things!! I've never seen a flocked
tree topper either! Love it all,
Halloween, Christmas Tree garland
and those fab colored stove pipe
rings. Hmmmmm...wonder what you
will create with them. : )
Have a good weekend. Nasty hot here. :(


Never heard of stove pipe rings but they sure are pretty...even if you don't turn them into something they would make great frames around another little framed picture.
Hey, I found some spun cotton Christmas angel heads & elves at an Estate sale...at first they wanted $5 for the plastic baggie of them & the old scrabble game and I said, 'no, I guess I don't think I need them' then she said "$2?" "okay!". They are kinda grungy, but still cute...and, there was one little pink cardboard house!

My Shabby Roses

Hey you did pretty good! Love the old Halloween...and the cake carrier is pretty cool too!

The color on those flue covers re just your color! They would make great frames!

The party streamers are divine.

I need a good junk fix. Your "junk" is so much fun!

Laurie, you are like a magnet for cute things! I've got to spend more time digging at these sales I've been going to....I fear that I'm overlooking some treasures (and we don't want that to happen!)


All great stuff as usual! Love those bats and that food carrier as well. When I saw those green stovepipe rings I immediately thought that they could be decorated to look like Christmas wreaths (vintage vintage doodads attached) - but I'm sure you'll come up with something even better!

Into Vintage

As often as many of us are out there yard & estate sale-ing, it's always exciting to come across something you've never seen before. Keeps the hunt fresh! And you are quite the spun head magnet.


H.E. Luhrs was Beistle's son-in-law and a graphic artist. He later became president of Beistle. A lot of Luhrs' designs were produced, I think, in the 1940s and 50s.

OK, if at all possible I need to move to your part of the country! SERIOUSLY! Every single week you put my treasures to shame! This one week is as good as it gets for an entire year by me! I'm just so glad you share all your goodies with us!
