Love the wooden niche! SO many options with that one! I wonder what the deal is with those holes in the cups??? There must be a good reason.
Fun stuff!

Anotehr fun weekend of fun finds!

The aluminum cups are sherbet glasses - they would have had glass inserts. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Colored-Aluminum-and-Glass-Sherbert-Ice-Cream-Dishes-Bright-Colors-Mint/261475035364?_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D222006%26algo%3DSIC.FITP%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140107083349%26meid%3D6816636885587105862%26pid%3D100011%26prg%3D20140107083349%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D10%26sd%3D201080524780

I went to an auction today and watched an old wooden ironing board sell for almost $40.00 which is CRAZY. I just bought one for $3.00! That metal one is super cool.


I love that ironing board so much -- it's going to be a great prop to display your amazing craft projects. No matter what the sale is like, you always manage to find something -- just a little something -- to make the effort worthwhile.

Those sputnik ornaments are super duper cool! Chris and I drove waaaaay across town yesterday to a sale that was extremely overpriced and not even worth the gas money. Not a single thing came home with us. Darn!!


I have one of those ironing boards that I hung in my laundry room. They are so cute! Glad to see you found some stuff. It was so rainy and miserable here that even if there were good sales, I doubt I would have gone.

Happy Mothers Day!!



Wow! That's a great score esp with the ironing board and metal shelf! I've never seen an ironing board like that one before. I could just KICK myself for selling a wooden ironing board that was green last year at my sale!
Hit the Talent City Wide one down here and got a few things. Phil got some great deals since it was raining cats and dogs here along!!!
Nice day today though :-)
Happy Mother's Day!!

Great stuff, but oh that elf!! I have had a thing for elves lately...a sickness I know! LOL!



I didn't get out for any junking this weekend so I'm happy I get to live vicariously through you! That elf and the little deer in the niche are great. I have recently (thanks to Pinterest) become fascinated with fairy gardens and elves, fairies and pixies all live in the same world inside my head.
Where the heck did you find a flea market??


Way cool ironing board! Love it!
I went to an auction on my side of town Friday night and walked out empty handed before it ended. Prices were much higher than I thought they might be - lots of dealers. I'll go back and give it another chance, though. I'll echo Kathy and ask where you found a flea market, esp on such a rainy day!

I'm adding a wooden ironing board to my search list! :-)

I have a couple of religious statues that would look wonderful in that niche!


That wooden niche is a great find!! I think you did well considering it's Mother's Day weekend. Hope you are having a great Mother's Day!!

Great finds! Looks like you're missing the bottoms to aluminum sundae containers. They usually had a plastic or glass insert. Here's a link to one on ebay: http://goo.gl/Pl3LUa.


Great finds!! The ironing board with that little shelf will be perfect for you! :) The wooden niche is cute, I'm excited to see what you do with it!! xo Holly


Wonderful finds! How do you always have the best luck in finding awesome sales? : )


What a perfect use for that awesome ironing board... it will look amazing in your display!
