I know it is a big no-no to post 2 blogs in 1 day, but I am just so excited about my finds today. I got an email this morning about an estate sale in town. It's the only one today so of course I went. WOW!!! they had great stuff. Here's what I got. Now stay with me till the end.

First is this lot of old table legs and trim. All of this for $5.00. Oh the projects in there...

Then I found this old Marmalade Crock, I'm using it in my office for Pens

Then inside the house I found this little quilted 2'x2' wall hanging, Obviously vintage
this Homer Laughlin colorware Bowl, and a bag of old sewing notions, how sweet.

Now for the best. I found this old Telephone Niche', perfectly chippy and with my name all over it. I do not know what I'm going to do with yet, but I'll think of something.
I was just doing the happy dance. Total spent, are you ready, $47.00. Like I said, Jackpot.

Omigosh, I am LOVING your phone niche!!! If I was there I'd do the happy dance with you! But, alas, geography has put a few states between us so you'll have to believe that I danced here in front of my computer.

Me too, that phone niche had my name it...not sure how you could have missed that. Well, then again you were closer and that whole 'first dibbs' thing...ok, ok...guess I'll have to join Sher in that Happy Dance cause you definitely hit PayDirt! I love the old wooden spools of thread!

Love your blog, sub'ing so I don't miss out.

And to think, you nailed all that on a Wednesday with the Weekend still on the Horizon. Yep, I'd say your rock at finding great deals!
