Here's what we found!
8 matching place mats, three mugs, four chalkware wall hangings, some vintage cookbooks, cute animal stationary, a pitcher, a sweet blender, a matching trash can and tissue box set, a table cloth, a necklace and a purse. Whew...that was a mouthful. The people having the yard sale reclined limply on the porch and weren't too enthused but I was!
I saw this baby from the road and we went straight to it. This was an exception to the pricing and was a dollar. It was completely covered in cooking grease when we got it but when I woke up this morning, Mister Kitsch had cleaned it within an inch of it's life. I told him that he has to remember that we're a blogging family who takes 'before' photos before cleaning anything. I really wish you could have seen it before. It was an Ick Fest. Good on him for being such a cleaning monster though!
Why don't they make beautiful appliances anymore? I love the starburst and those bright orange buttons. And it works like a charm! I can't wait to frappe' something. Whatever that means. I also can not wait to donate our modern black plastic one. It's hideous and deserves to be cast out onto the thrift store shelf.
This is actually a weird story. A couple of days ago, one of my Flickr friends listed a mug like this in her Etsy shop. I flipped for it but unfortunately, couldn't afford it. Saaaaaad. Then at this yard sale, we were paying and I told the Mister that I wanted to go make one more loop around - and then, I saw it. THE mug! I let out a war whoop and everyone around me turned to see me holding the mug up in the air and waving it at the Mister who was up on the porch. I'm sure the other yard sale goers were puzzled about why I was so stoked but I had SO wanted that mug. Crazy magic!
Mushroom pitcher. Hmm...No good stories about this but I love it!
Funky floral tablecloth with tassel trim for our patio table. It reminds me of something that should be next to a pool. Gah, I wish! I'd give everything that I own for a pool.
Sweet. These little rascals will go in the shop as alas, I am out of wall space.
We also found these guys. Though not at a yard sale. We found them while hanging up lost dog signs. No, the irony of that does not escape me! Poor little guys were lost and rooting through trash for food. This story is still unfolding but aren't they cute?!
What about you guys and girls? Up to anything good this weekend? Are any of you who are using Blogger as addled and confused as I am about the new format? Yesterday, I accidentally lost my entire blog design - and this morning, I couldn't even find my own blog!
Until next time,
x's and o's,
