Musings from Kim K.

Another swim cap! Yippee!! I spy lots of crafting potential with all your fun treasures. Those FLAG initials are wonderful. Can't wait to see your patriotic display all set up this year.

I love those Stanley tools signs. They always make me laugh when I see them.


Love how you describe what you buy at shows as souvenirs! That is so true :-)

How funny that you found another snowman like the one you hauled back from Round Top. Quirkiness just seems to follow you around, huh?

Can't wait to see your 4th of July decorations. I am getting mine out next week. It sure is sneaking up quickly, isn't it?

Have an awesome day~!



WOW!! What great finds you got!
Love the red, white and blue.....just in time for the 4th! I'm partial to the snowman head. Can't believe you have 3 of those now!
Those swim caps are just made for you :-)
Thanks for sharing - Have a wonderful day!

Love the picture of you Laurie :) Darling! The snowman is sweet too. Glad you had fun with your Mom :)


awesome finds! Love all of the patriotic goodies! The red, white, blue, Americana, and patriotic items are my most favorite items to decorate my home with and to collect! Can't wait to see your July decorations!

How much do I love that 'Lonesome Octopus' record (a lot) and the safety chart! You really do find the quirkiest things. If you ever opened a store, I would stand in line all night for opening day. :)


What a great bunch o' stuff!! I can't even decide what I like best. I bet you would have brought home more of the honeycomb umbrellas if you could have. Looking forward to seeing this years' 4th display.

The pleated trim is wild. I can't wait to see how you craft with it. Your 4th of July display is expanding daily. It should be exceptional. I loved you in the swim cap. Glad you had a great time.


My fave is the snowman head - how cute is he??? Real cute!!


You better get cracking on that "someday" beach house - it's filling up nicely!

Love the old safety sign - I framed up a bunch of old safety posters and they are so funny.

I found a slew of Kewpies in my stash the other day that I totally forgot I had. Glad you rescued all that you did!

Well aren't you adorable in your swim cap. I actually remember my mom wearing one of those. Too bad she doesn't still have it. You found some fun treasures.

Display tip - My swim cap collection serves a dual purpose as toilet paper roll covers.


I think the chippy old horn would look great displayed with the bugle book. Love that pleated trim and honey comb parasols are going to be so perfect for your crafting. Great finds!!


Wonderful finds - I was thinking that horn would be a great Fall decor piece "Horn of Plenty"...

Of course it would be no surprise to you that I would choose the deer as my favorites; followed closely by those honeycomb parasols!

Such a great haul for more crafting magic!


That pleated trim is cute. I'm sure you see lots of potential. Like those animal puzzle pieces too.

That horn looks kind of like an ear trumpet. Totally totally in love with that octopus comic/record. If you ever have a chance/reason/excuse to do so, I would love to see more of it!
