~Vintage Velvet Album~
At the World's Longest Yard Sale, I also purchased this gorgeous vintage album.....I love how the velvet is worn and faded....When I saw the inside, I knew just what I wanted to place in these lovely old pages.... My vintage postcards, of course!

I will have fun filling up these pages with one of my favorite collections!
Still many more treasures to show you!!
Hope you have had a wonderful week! :)

~Another 127 Find~

Cute pink "couple" vase ~ aren't they sweet? The vase is a "tree trunk" that has a little heart "carved" in it!
I brought some flowers in from the yard ~ mostly wildflowers ~ it seemed appropriate!

Kate thanks you for the kind comments in the previous post :)
Lots more WLYS finds yet to come!!

Hi! I'm Kleanser Kate!
Becca brought me home from the World's Longest Yard Sale...... I must admit, I was a little nervous, because my new home needed to co-ordinate with my clothing.... I only have the one outfit, you know.....

Hmmm, what's this? Cute little cottages in the background? Pink and blue scrubby pads? A vintage blue dish drainer? I remember things like this from long ago..... This is not a modern kitchen at all!! Whew!!
I think I'm going to feel right at home here......
Oh, by the way, Becca says to come back soon to see more of what she brought home.... none as pretty as I am, of course, but..... do stop back by!

127 Sale
We are back from the World's Longest Yard Sale!! Here are some highlights: (next post will be all the pretty treasures I found ~ and believe me, I found ALOT! :)

Goodies galore -- nestled among shade trees, a little bit of heaven in the heat.....This sale was next to a cute little barn shoppe. One little area was even cottage style!

This was a little vignette outside their shoppe. So cute!!The hollyhocks in this country yard were so pretty, I had to take a photo of them!!

These were in the "free" box! Don't you think the little white and grey one would go perfectly in my home? (hubby did NOT agree!)

For those not familiar with the World's Longest Yard Sale, it runs from Michigan down through Alabama along Route 127. It is a junk lover's paradise!! We concentrated our efforts in Kentucky and our home state of Ohio this year. I am blessed that my husband like yard sales and junk-hunting too (even if he doesn't share my love of cats ;) We have so much fun together.
Next Post: The Pretties!!
