Musings from Kim K.

All is well again in estate sale land. That Santa candy container is fantastic and that cat light bulb is pretty amazing too. I'm always envious of all your vintage Halloween finds. I especially love that honeycomb cat. I'm definitely living through you right now. Estate sales just aren't happening now that winter has hit. Happy Friday, indeed!

You can use the pink elephant for New Years Eve. Great finds!


I love the big gold egg and that fun Santa candy container. I've never seen anything like that before - and I guess you haven't either.

There is a sewing box like that one in my flea market and I look at it every time I go in. It's really sweet.

Glad you got to do some digging today!


It is such fun to see what treasures you come home with. I just rarely see these old things. Vintage Halloween! Wow!


Well it looks like you got your wish for a vintage estate sale fix this weekend!
Love those nursery cutouts!! Can't believe how big those are. So it looks like you got something for every season or holiday too almost. You Lucky Duck :-)
What a score with that Santa head too. Always nice to talk to someone else who is the same huh? Better than getting the evil eye or knocked over by people
So much fun.
Have a wonderful weekend :-)


lots of goodies! my favorite? the honeycomb halloween cat!! LOVE it!
happy weekend!

The cat light is very interesting. I wonder if it originally was part of a set maybe of other animals playing instruments?...funny how just one bulb survived. It always amazes me the "little things" that get saved & not thrown away & makes me wonder the "little things" that are just trinkets to me now, 50 yrs from now someone will be fighting over in an estate sale. The equivalent to these old dime store purchases would be I guess our dollar store things...funny to think that someone would fight over that!
Have a great weekend! (((Hugs)))


Well--has Tom commandeered the elephant for his dresser? (HA HA)
wow LOOKS like you have had another fabulous haul in vintage goodness-see it is around every corner for you!! Your karma must be fabulous!
LOVE your comment about the nice woman shopping along with you (as opposed to against)- always pleasant to meet a kindred spirit ;-)


Such a good mix of finds!! That bunny with the carrot is really cute. The Santa head is so unusual and fun. Is Kate still looking for vintage Oregon for her room??


What a great haul! Wish you could live closer so I could rub off some of that luck! (or go shopping with you!)
hugs, karen....

Love all your finds! I especially love the ornaments! I went to the best estate sale of my life this weekend! A garage and storage room FULL of vintage Christmas and house full of all other kinds of vintage and mostly all reasonably priced! A great estate sale is rare in winter, so I really enjoyed this one!


All I can say is WOW!!!

Lucky, lucky you!!


Great finds! Was it the one on 148th near Sandy Blvd? That one looked interesting. My day has been busy with family but I'm hoping to run by there tomorrow to see if there is anything left.


i have that same kitty jewelry box! i keep my brooches in it, and love it! those little satin chicks are especially cute. good haul!

My biggest weakness is holiday decor and you never disappoint! The honeycomb cat is awesome! I had a little chuckle to myself...the elf (with the ornaments & Santa head) reminds me of Link! I have two gamer kids! So, you may not know what I'm talking about, but I enjoyed this post, as I always do!


You made a huge holiday haul! Wow!!! The vintage Halloween decor is unbelievable! With all the estate sale-ing I do, I have never found a Gurley candle of any kind. Did they not sell them Down South??? Glad you made a friend and some great finds!!!


What the heck? Did the estate sale gods have you in mind when that sale was created? Jeez, lucky girl!! I'm still waiting for my first big sale of the year. Now that you have gotten yours, maybe its my turn?

Btw...Hanna & I picked our weekend to go to Alameda this year. We are going to go in August. We want to make a girls weekend out of it so before we go, I'm going to pick your brain about good stops to make! Oh the pressure I put on you...

Have a great week!

I love it when you make a good score. I get to see so many things I have never seen before and come to love myself. Glad you had a wonderful time.


Great finds again, Laurie, congrats! Love the vintage Halloween (I have that cat!), the huge bunny and of course, the tiny deer! Awesome.


Sales, and good sales at that! It might be the fact that it was 4 below zero here this morning that prevents that kind of thing here. I will live vicariously through you!

Great finds! Love the cute elephant and bunny!! xo Heather


Some fun stuff! Loving the honeycomb cat!
