I've figured it out you guys. I know how I'm going to get back on track with the blog and the booth. Stop with the damn Pinterest! That time sucker has been killing me lately. Scroll...scroll...giggle ...ooo pretty...scroll...giggle...gross...scroll... Honestly, I'm so out of control with it, it's time to take a step back and regain my attention span. Wow, I feel better with that off my chest. On to the thrift finds!
If you think this kitty on a shoe is cute, wait until I tell you that it's a pencil sharpener. Yup, a fabulous little pencil sharpener! I'm super excited about it, which might be kind of sad...
I might as well share that ^ strangeness with you guys. I LOVE office supplies! Ohmygosh, a new pen makes my heart sing. Oh, and if I get to use that new pen on a new notepad, oh - that's the stuff right there! So now that I've over shared with you, you will understand a bit better why I bought a bag of vintage pens that don't work. I physically and emotionally couldn't leave them! They're so cool! I was able to hold back and not buy all 10 bags. I don't know how, but I did. But if they're still there next time I go back... Oh, and don't they look lovely in the Daisy fridge dish I picked from an antique store? Makes me smile.
My brother picked up this old mandolin years ago but never took it with him to Alaska. He gave it to me when he came to visit, and I think I'm going to keep it. I like the sexy curvy Gibson look it has.
This train case is pretty dang old and has a cute little customs label on the side. I think it'll sell quickly at the booth. The brass things, I'm not sure about. Are they pillar candle holders? And does anyone have a guess on the animal head decorating them? Kind of looks like a rams head to me.
The Butterfly Gold is another antique store pick that is headed to the booth. What's with the red eyed bunnies?! They kind of freak me out.
That pattern is perfect! No fading, no scratches, no pits. I NEVER get that lucky with these glasses!
If you follow my Instagram, you already saw me get spastic over this bag. But seriously, can you blame me? It has my freakin' initials on it!
And we'll close out with yet another weird "thing" of mine. Buttons, I can't let them go! I haven't been crafting with them lately and I have at least 20 pounds of them, but I still need more. *coughhoardercough* They're just so pretty! If you look closely you can see me in my jammies in the reflection of the West Bend Hot Cold Server. They always sell well for me. And that is my first vintage Easter decoration. Woohoo! I think it needs flowers in that little blue thing. Maybe I should make some with my buttons...
I shared a few of my weird little things. Your turn! Do you have a weird item that you shamelessly collect and love? Paper clips, single salt shakers, yarn, pens... Spill it! No judgement here!
