By Any Other Name

Yard saling on Sat. was very good. First I will show you the things I am keeping. This plant pot is large and is made of molded foam. They never punched a hole in the bottom so I think that is why they got rid of it for 1.00. If you put it outside it would drown the plants. I found a church sale and really made out well, all the vintage Christmas is from there. The blue green pot has no cover and I really hate buying things like that but... it matches the pottery I am collecting and it would make a great vase for flowers.

The Tupperware thing is full of smaller containers to hold a lunch. I don't believe it was ever used. I take a lunch to work everyday and this will come in handy for .25. The hand thrown pottery mugs, I have a thing for. I love them in all colors and shapes. I am now starting to get to many. But if you ever have guests and your drinking coffee or tea you will always know which mug is yours. And of course the light kit for .50. I am always turning something into a light. The bag of lace trim is headed for my pillow cases and if I have enough the sheets.
This is what I am selling. a real mix of things that I got very cheap. The quilt was 1.00. I am sure I will make my money back on that plus. The young queen and her prince on a coronation tin. the handles sticking out are a carving set I believe to be Bakelite handles. The print is grandma moses fabric framed. I find these a lot. there is a bag of German beer coasters, a book on dolls, etc.
It is a short week next week I am taking Friday off. We are going camping with my husbands whole family. We thought we could get set up on Friday but we can't get in until sat. So on Friday I am going to take some time to go to my daughters. We will meet up with one of my friends and go out and about. or as we say Ka-loup-ing not sure if it's a real word. On another note we have been trying to come up with a name for me since I can not be called Grammie. My daughter's mother in law already has 2 other grand children that call her Grammie. So she has first dibs on that one, I do not want to be called Nana as my not favorite grand parent was called that. My husband will be called Pepe as he is french. Not loving the meme, So we have a 6 months to figure it out. I really like ya ya which is Greek but we are not Greek but could we use it???
Have a great week!

My grandson calls me mema (or is it mima)? I like that. I think yaya is great, too. My niece is married to a Greek and her kids have a yaya.
Great finds!
Any progress on the rug? I have barely hooked in months :(
Pug hugs :)
