thrifting part one and a flop!

I have been at the lodge all week, sooooo
Friday I got to stop at one sale and I hit the mother load.....

such wonderful treasures.

the tables and stools I will work a little magic on.
check out the little desk and chair!!!

love all the linens and the scale.

check out this Swedish Viking it works great.
I love the color and the plaid case!

this dress was with it and all cut out so I will
see with much begging if my
Mom will finish it.

this bank and old deck of playing cards.

and then the flop.
check out this terrible lemon pie
I tried to make, it was like taffy!!!!
My mistake was trying a new recipe.
I am so sorry I have not been able to comment for a few days
I've been getting up at 3am
and driving the kids to school.
3 1/2 hours on the road YUCK.
the high point of my week was going to be going to Amanda's
tag sale where all the proceeds went to helping animals.
and I forgot.


  1. Your post is like a roller coaster. You got all those things at one sale??? Wow! You did good girl! Maybe now that you don't have so many things going on things will settle down(????) I'm sorry you missed her sale, it sounds like it was a good one. I wish I could have gone. I hope your week is more peaceful and beautiful, Heidi, and that you hit more good sales.

  2. I'm sorry I just had to skip the flop part & go straight to comments my heart is racing & I can barely catch my breath at all those incredible treasures!!!!!!!!!! You got ALL THAT in one place at one time?? Everything is amazing I don't know where to begin, there is like a lifetime of fabulous finds I'll go back & finish reading...

  3. They must have LOVED you at that sale!! What brilliant finds...that sewing machine is pure heaven. Shame about your pie. Hope you have a super week :)

  4. Wow.....that is definitely a mother load. I don't know what I like best, the little green glass dish, the desk, the sewing machine or the linens. I love it all. Have a happy week. so

  5. You found some amazing things! I LOVE the old sewing machine! Very fun!

  6. I LOVE the cakestand and the linens and the sewing machine - those are some amazing treasures. I am not sure if it is something you would like or not, but I bought a vintage dining set by Broyhill. It is part of the Forward '70 line. I am going to paint it and recover the chairs. I have it posted on my blog. Let me know if you think I am crazy to paint it. :)

  7. oh wow you hit the motherload - big time! pretty jealous of your take :)

  8. Wow! You found some lovely things. Those embroidered tea pot linens are gorgeous!

  9. That is the mother load. My heart skipped a bit when I saw that sewing machine. I too would have bought it. And we both found scales this week :-) Fabulous finds.
