I knew you would find some real treasures. Stools have been my "thing" lately. I can't wait to see what you do with yours-you will have to do a post. I also want to see your 4th of July decorating. I always get great ideas from your pictures.
If I can't go to Farm Chicks I can at least enjoy it through you. :-)

Thanks for sharing! It looks like you had successful trip!! Love the 4th of July cookie cutters.



I love the tiny chairs too.Will you use your Magpie Magic on them?


You are kidding me...I have been looking for those chairs for years..what a find. The swim cap...find the label I am sure your name is on it. Gorgeous. Can you imagine a pool full of them. Love the wire stand and all your holiday goods. Man I need to get out. Smiles...Renee


Yes....I can picture you as one of those swimming beauties with those caps on LOL. You model them very well!
Love all the metal items you found and I can see the sweater on you.
Those chairs are too cute too!!
I have that exact frog squeaky toy in my bathroom :-)
Thanks for sharing all the pics. Dreary and raining down this way and your blog brightened my day as usual!


Oh, I would have bought that metal stand. That is great!

But those tiny chairs were made for y-o-u. Can hardly wait to see what you do with them.

Great swim cap... you can wear it today to keep your hair dry. Maybe you can start a new trend in Weird Portland.


Laurie, you did such a great job once again. Your "haul" is just wonderful. The little chairs are to die for...so adorable!

Pinterest had me grinning and thinking about you! And I cried with greed when I saw those little chairs. My Grandma Patta used to do the table decorations for church luncheons...those chairs were probably for a luncheon or fashion show...maybe for swim suits and matching caps! =D

My comment got cut off at the top...I meant to say I saw a pic of vintage swim caps on Pinterest and thought of you...how weird the other one sounds. LOL!


Your cap photos always make me laugh. :-)

That chippy white metal thing is an interesting thing, eh? Perfect for flowers on the porch.


Thank you so much for the switch in your wonderful sale. Love your chairs! So many fun finds, but can you imagine making a Lincoln cookie! Eee Gad that's one ugly cookie!


Great finds Laurie! I knew I was gonna be jealous when I read this post :) Love that metal stand and all those itty bitty chairs, oh my... awesome! Can't wait to see your 4th of July decortions! You always inspire my decorating on the holidays.


Oh my gosh, what a deal to find all those little chairs at once. I see a whole new "Ethel" line on the horizon!

Love the swim cap and those teensy chairs (are you listing any on etsy?) Good finds!


I can't wait to see a team of Spun Heads sitting down on those adorable chairs! FUN FINDS indeed!



First of all: Fabulous way to open your post! That photo of you in your new cap brought an instant smile to my face! That cap is so great-- is it a "top notch"?!
Second: I love those little chairs!! I've always wanted to find one of those. They're so sweet!
Third: Thanks for sharing your Farm Chicks fun with us! Once again, I'm living vicarously through you. Each year I depend on you to share the fun, and you never disappoint!!

You always brighten my day when I read your blog. I get to check you out at work before I start for the day. I come in early just to sit and enjoy the pictures and posts. Congratulations on those tiny chairs.
