You know you're busy when the only chance you have to take photos of your finds is as they're being packed into your car!
On Thursday, I headed to an estate sale before work. I was laaaate in line and boy was there a line! The best part was that I finally got to meet Rae! She took photos inside the estate sale and posted about it - check out her recap here!
I didn't really do my research on this sale - it was a little bit of a last minute decision to go - so I didn't know what to expect. Most people were disappointed by it. I found a few things - a nice suitcase (that I now realize smells - I couldn't tell down in the basement of the house! I'm hoping febreze and stuffing newspaper inside helps!), a uniquely-sized file drawer, a really funny KY bumper sticker (OH! Kentucky. You'll come to love it.), an accordion hanger (I like to hang my aprons from accordion hangers in my booth), and a hot plate - is what what you call them? I really like these plug-in 60s warmers. I will re-sell it (it would be perfect for tailgating) so maybe I will hang onto it for the fall.
Another item I will be holding onto for later this year:
I definitely have a weakness for vintage ceramic Christmas trees and I've never seen one like this - it's "flat" - it looks like it's meant to be part of a scene. I love it!
In other news - this is what our dining room table looked like most of the weekend:
This was a really great "weekendy" weekend. For so long after we got Lucy, I felt like I never left the house and I was beginning to get stir-crazy. This weekend was a great blend of Andy-time, family time, friend time, and Jamie-time. Friday night, Andy and I started putting together a new Lego set (more on that later!). Saturday, I got my hair done and then hung out with girlfriends for hours - and it had been so long since I had done that! I sewed a lot this weekend, too. I made a few of these dresses (short versions - more on those later, too!). Sunday, we spent time with Andy's whole family to celebrate his cousin Matt who is heading to Afghanistan soon to be a journalist for the military. (He has already served 3 tour of duties overseas and has been back for a few years and now is going back to be a journalist. Incredible!)
We took Lucy over to aunt Belinda's and she played with one of their pups for awhile and she has been so sleepy ever since. I love seeing her play with other dogs! She has only played twice but both times, she had so much fun - and everyone loves her!
I hope you had a "weekendy" weekend too!!
