I'm just popping in with a few pretty flowers and a "hello." Can we believe May is winding down already? Time really does fly! June brings the annual ICAD challenge (here is the official info). I'm not certain if I will participate this year, but if I do, I will post my cards here as usual.
I hit a good estate sale last week. The house was small but jammed packed. This is the most I have bought at one sale in a long time. From the far left, around clockwise: two small, made in Brazil, spice canisters. A cute and mod cat ornament made in Hong Kong. A 1949 dress pattern; this is the oldest pattern I've ever found. A very cute children's book. A complete U.S. map puzzle with a copyright of 1915. Two Xmas aprons and a cute, musical themed hanky.
A very hard to find Nuway spice rack from the 30s (I think). A Little Golden Book dictionary. 1970s laundry hooks-- those are really handy. Four, believe it or not, boxes of flash cards, and an old, unused ledger book.
A few school workbooks, unused from the 60s, and two very old magazines. The Woman's Day is from 1940 and the BH & G is from 1952. Can you see the price on the Woman's Day? Two cents!!
Let's look inside those magazines...
Times sure have changed, haven't they? Thanks for reading... See ya!
I went to an estate sale Friday which a lot of you may know means everything is full price. With that in mind, I didn't expect to walk away with much, and I was right. The house was pretty full, but most items were old, dusty, rusty-- and expensive! However, I came away with a sewing pattern, a farm license plate from 1985, a very mod desk or vanity storage box, and a box full of empty film reels.
Let's take a closer look at that pattern. 1969 dresses and jumpers for girls. Yes, it does look rather "Brady Bunchsque." Kinda fun.
I received a fun comment from Pat, of Corn In My Coffee Pot fame, on yesterday's inchies. She mentioned there was no frame of reference to give an idea of size. Well, she was right so just for fun, I reshot all of them next to an item I think everyone will know. Up first-- a domino.
A penny, of course
A small sized ponytail holder
A standard playing card
A Junior Mint
A Ritz cracker
A drinking straw
A cassette tape
A can of tuna
And just in case you are still not convinced-- how about next to a folding yardstick?
