What a fun and interesting sale..Oh my gosh..........they advertised as diggers sale to the Nth degree..........they weren't kidding! First of all.....not sure if the winter has gotten so long here in MN or what but people were SO pushy and rude today. It was literally wall to wall people right next to each other the whole time. I love to watch people at estate sales.... First thing I got was this awesome old photo album.....I saw it on their website and thought for sure it would be gone by the time we got there and too expensive......there it was on the first table.......6.00! SCORE!
Next I spied this vintage crepe paper....... 3..00 for all! SCORE!

OH MY GOSH!! A WHOLE bucket full of vintage wallpaper.....I thought .......this is going to be expensive.......I couldn't believe it when I saw the price on the 5 gal bucket........8.00 all! SCORE!

Close up of some of the wallpaper!

I am just loving vintage silver lately and it is catching on and the shops have it quite expensive lately.........not this lot.......1.00 each! SCORE!

Fun vintage dotted swiss flowers with vintage rhinestone centers........2 for 1.00! SCORE!

And the last 2 things....the first is the most fun vintage fly swatter I have seen.....what love went into making an aweful task pretty.....50 cents......and the HUGE roll of pink paper underneath it..1.00! SCORE!

I am getting ready for Easter....These tags are waiting to be finished. I bought them from Your Angil's Etsy Shop. I bought these silk hydrangea today for $2.00 each. I can't wait to use them . I took a couple of florets off for the picture. I love how they look tea dyed. My new banner is of some wonderful eggs I bought when we were in Florida.....I just love the soft colors.

Fun Finds & I need everyones opinion.....

I had a fun day at 2 estate sales today. I love vintage millinery and I love to buy old hats cheap and take them apart. All hats were $2.00 each. Here they are all torn apart...can't beat the price!

These are just huge! Love the spring colors.

Need your opinion......this is a vintage sweater with the most adorable velvet flowers. Do you think I should take them off the sweater and use it as a wonderful garland or leave it as is for my mannequin.

I can't wait til spring! It's finally getting a little nicer and signs that there is hope for spring. I love playing with textures on my photos and wanted to share this one of my delphinium last year. I'm off the the Home and Garden show with my mom. Should be fun. Can't wait to see all the flower and get new ideas....

I wanted to share some of our finds from our vacations to Florida.....we were lucky to find some sand dollars, star fish and of course.........gorgeous shells. I decorated the downstairs bathroom with all our finds....the old vintage net is used for a curtain with starfish in it.
