A Little More Junking!

This wasn't a big week-end for me as far a "junking" but I had fun!

Friday morning there was an estate sale that started at 8:00am.

This worked out pretty well for me as it was close by and I didn't have to be to work until 9:00am.

When I arrived, at 8:15am, there was a line!


I didn't think there would still be a line.

Fortunately, I didn't wait too long to get in and I was able to pay the gentleman out back so I could dash off to school.

Here is one of the things I purchased.

I don't know if you remember but I have an ever growing collection of old Wedding and Baptism Certificates.

The reason I buy them is that I enjoy the beautiful roses pictured.

And this one, had them!

I think that makes five.

I also bought this beautiful paper item.

It's about 12" tall.

I couldn't resist this wonderful old child's crib on the half price day.

My #1 wanted me to resist it but when I looked inside the box (the crib was not assembled)I saw these fabulous old wheels.

I looked at him and said, "I've got to get it!"

Fortunately he's a good sport!

When he gets it assembled, I'll show you a picture of it.

I've got plans for that sweet thing!

Lastly, here is a little vintage shoe.

Yes, just one but for .50 cents, would you leave it behind?

If you'd like to see other fabulous junk, be sure to stop over at Cottage Charm and Family Inspirations.

I too share your love of wedding and baptismal ephemera. So lovely! I scored an 1887 bible this weekend and there was a marriage certificate inside.
Love your blog, I plan on following you.
All the best,
