Glad to see you found a good sale to brighten your day. I have been thinking of you every day this week. Kate is using her wings, learning to fly on her own. You have given her strong roots and a happy nest that she will always return to. Hope you have many more good days coming your way.


Awwwwww Laurie :-(
Kate's not that far away esp these days with e-mails,texting,Skype and phone calls.
Glad you found a good sale cheer up :-)The two sided card is awful cute.Looks like you did pretty good for a half price day.
Christmas and Easter goodies to make you smile! I can picture you tinkering away in your lovely studio!
Each day will be easier :-)


Oh Laurie, I can't believe how well you did on a SUNDAY! The picking overlords were smiling down to cheer you up, for sure!! Love those house plans. Yes, I want to live in a house named Sunshine.

Now you'll see just what a great job you've done teaching Kate and she'll make you proud. That Easter cut out book is great. I love Holiday things and paper in general. I have read every post you've made and I don't believe you have done squeaky toys yet.


Vintage retail therapy: never discount its power.

I've found that time spent junking ALWAYS cheers me up! Great finds, especially that Aladdin catalog. If you EVER find one for Sears Roebuck homes, I'd be VERY interested in taking that off of your hands!


What some sweet finds!! The Christmas card holder is neat!! Have a wonderful week! xo Heather


So glad you cheered up. I love the little box of Easter with the cute bunny by the little boy...adorable!

Nothing like an estate sale to boost your spirits!! You found some wonderful additions to your collections. Skype and Facetime...amazing inventions!!!

A sale is the perfect thing to cheer you up! Your Easter box of goodies are just precious. Can't wait to see what you are up to for Halloween this year!


Wow what a fantastic sale you found there and I love that book on houses, what a find that is!


I was wondering how it went, seeing your daughter off to college - hard for both of you, but time marches on and we can't keep them around forever, can we? (my turn for the send-off next year). Best of luck and continue to find great stuff!

Those cut-out books must have been the rage in the 1930's - I have one with a children's party theme - all sorts of goodies to punch out and assemble.


Thrift Therapy - I swear by it.

That little Sunshine house looks like the house on Daisy Cottage. http://deardaisycottage.typepad.com/daisy_cottage/

Those old boxes are just plain sweet!


Aren't you glad you have children that make you sad when they leave? That's a wonderful thing.

Great shopping for a Sunday.


You find the best stuff! Glad you were cheered. Here in the last couple weeks I've been emotional over my baby growing up. He's 14 but looks and acts 18! He's no longer a little boy. :(
