~Estate Sale Goodies~
My mom and I went to a local estate sale Thursday. At first, I thought everything was overpriced (in the house), but when I went out to the garage, I found some vintage goodies that were more in my price range.....
Such as this vintage wallpaper-covered box with drawers. I have wanted one of these "4-ev-uh"!! Finally I have one!!


Also this old sewing box, still filled with notions. The inside is a bit musty smelling and dirty, but I'm sure I can freshen it up!

Sweet little band of old flowers.

A vintage wastebasket with a bluebird on it! Oh my!! Also needs a (very) good cleaning, but..... !!!!!

My mom found a cute little rabbit for her garden..... my mom is not into vintage/shabby/chippy/rusty like I am, so we shop well together! (well, except for her wondering, sometimes outloud, "What on earth do you want THAT old thing for?" LOL! )

Hope you have a great weekend!!

Becca, love the boxes and the little drawer thing is amazing. I never have a way to go to estate or garage sales, so Goodwill is my only outlet, but I have found some great things. I love your living room and who would have thought of putting a beautiful dresser in it. Oh girl, you are filling my head with dreams. Love Ya, Pat
