Saturday's Finds

Here are my christmas finds from today. These are from three diffrent places. I always get vintage christmas music when ever I can.
I got a few books to take to the store. Firefly beach is such a wonderful read. If you haven't read it you should. I usually pick up books I know that would be good for the book store I work in. Jodi Picoult is a N.H. author and is always popular. I would love to learn to upholster. My dad did that for a living but he died when I was 19, I was not old enough to undersand what a great thing it is to know.
I got a bunch of very recent magazines but this one
the name of cracked me up. I don't know if it is popular in the south but all I could see was a little old lady going out to cut roses packing a gun.

This is a cute little duck that is a toy you push from the handle and the big rubber feel flap on the ground as it walks along.


I got a silverware tray the ivy is hand painted. It's oak I may or may not sell it.



I got this apron. So cute this is a picture of the pocket. It is stained but that means it was loved.
I am soaking it hoping to get some of the stains out.


And this is the coller look at the lace. who ever made this always wanted to look nice even in an apron.




The weather is still beautiful. I have monday off so I am going to get caught up on things here maybe.

Vintage Christmas, how grand.
The magazine is too funny. Maybe they are going to shoot what has been eating on their flowers or veggies.
Love the duck, I remember those.
Looks like you had a great time thrifting.

I bet the Sinatra Christmas album is great! I'd even listen to it in August. Great finds!
