sunday junkin'

it was a gorgeous sunny day here in so cal on sunday...perfect for sunday junkin'!!!

Rosebowl
i came home with a few goodies, a sunburn, and wonderful inspiration...

i spent more time enjoying the atmosphere than i did shopping...but did manage another McGuffey's Reader ($3 was a steal!!!)...i collect them for three reasons...

1) they are adorable vintage readers

2) laura ingalls wilder learned from them

3) the private school i went to in south pasadena actually used them when i was in first grade

i also 'stole' the depression glass, slides, letters, and stamps...just sayin' the deals were to be had!

it's rainy here today, so in the studio creating and organizing (as usual!)

Be Frugal!

sunday junkin'

no...the blog has not turned into a 'sunday junkin only' blog...promise...i have just been crazy with work and getting back into a groove after CHA...promise...

i was able to escape work today and head to a flea market...it was a gorgeous day...and the loot is just as fabulous...

001 - Copy (2)
there were a few other things, but i am working on something with a dear friend so i left them in her care...i can't wait to share what we are up to...super exciting news!

here is a look at the smaller items...

005 - Copy (2)
delicious...would you like to see a close up of the item that brought tears to my eyes?

012 - Copy
after finding the cinderella golden book earlier in the day, this watch put me over the top! i had a cinderella watch when i was a wee girl...it stopped working and it ended up in my father's junk drawer of sorts...never to be seen again...well, with my love of disney and all things vintage, i have been searching for the watch...this is the face (with the pink numbers and hands...adore!) of my watch although my band was white...hence the tears...i love it...very, very, much...

here is the other fabulous find of the day...

014 - Copy (3)
i have a vintage view-master similar to the one i had as a child...but this one is just too cool! it is all black with metal parts vs my plastic one...in it's original box with lots of fabulous reels...a few disney of course! too cheap to pass up...seriously...

thank you for stopping in...i will share my exciting venture soon!

Be Patient!
