Hi, everyone! This Sunday is my birthday-46 years young! I'm a firm believer in celebrating your birthday for a whole week (my hubby says the truth is I like celebrating the whole month!) So this week has been full of FUN birthday shopping! Whenever I wanted to justify a purchase I'd say "well, this is my birthday present to myself"....works for me! :) So I'm going to share with you some of my fun finds.
First off, my favorite: this large, tarnished, engraved trophy from the 1930's!
My heart literally started beating faster when I spotted it on a table full of 'junk' at the flea market. Around these parts these babies are hard to find, and when you do find one, it'll cost ya your firstborn (which I don't have anyway! :) So I was extra thrilled to get it for a steal.
I also found the creamer next to it-I thought it had very unusual lines and looked 'trophyish' (I think I just made up a word.) This next little set is so tiny and cute, I couldn't resist!
I've always wanted one of these 'banana crates' but just like with the trophy, whenever I've seen them the price has been outrageous! (If you haven't noticed before, I'm quite a bargain shopper!)
I was so excited to find this and for a very reasonable price-score!
I filled it with dried hydrangeas and set it in the middle of our dining room table.
Unfortunately it won't be able to stay here because a certain naughty kitty, for some strange reason, thinks dried flowers are a tasty snack!
Anyway, back to my finds...adding to 2 of my growing collections are a feed sack and a Dundee Marmalade jar...
A large perfectly chippy frame...
A fun, shabby 'For Sale' sign...
A gigantic flower frog...
And this huge wire basket...
So, what do you think? Which of my new treasures is your favorite?
It's been a great birthday week, and I haven't even gotten my 'official' presents yet! ;)
Thank you so much stopping by, and have a fantastic week!
