Two adorable light aqua lampshades with ruffley lace, several smaller pieces of vintage roses fabric, and a lovely embroidered runner.
A bunch of vintage glass knobs, (from two different dealers) three rhinestone buckles, a mop pocket knife, guilloche locket, bag of buttons with several rhinestone ones, and a large piece of barkcloth era fabric.
Two partial rolls of vintage wallpaper, with roses of course.
Lovely barkcloth era twin bed coverlet. Isabel had the excellent idea to use this on the daybed I bought from her for my front room. I think it will be perfect for that!
I love this vintage slip/crinoline I got and wore it under a dress (peeking out) over jeans on Sunday. I thought it looked so cute, but Joy, and MaryAnn made me take off the jeans as it was way too hot out. Wish I got a picture of me taking off my pants in the middle of the isle, but fortunately for you I didn't. The velvet rose I bought from one of my favorite dealers, Susan a fellow dealer at Monticello. It looks red in the picture, but it is really pink.
I also bought a cute little three drawer cabinet which I unfortunately buried in the garage before I could snap a picture of it.It may seem to some of you that I bought a lot of stuff, but actually I felt I really restrained myself and was very selective. I love everything I got and didn't pay much for any one thing. You all know that I am a thrifty girl.
Now for the award section of this post.
Fitty from Fittys Pinky Rose Cottage was the winner of my 100th post giveaway in March. She was so nice to honor me with the Brillante Weblog Premio-2008 award. Thanks so much Fitty! It's so nice to know that I have readers all around the world who appreciate what I am doing/showing on my blog.
This next award was given to me by Pat at Bird Nest on the Ground. It is the Artey Pico Award. This is the second time I have been lucky enough to receive this award. Pat is fairly new to blogging and has been such a wonderful and sweet frequent commenter on my blog. Pat is an amazing quilter. Please stop by her blog for a visit and tell her hi.
When I first started my blog back in July 07, I never would have thought that people other than my friends and family would read it. Let's face it, I'm not sure my friends and family do read my blog. Okay, maybe a few of them. But I never could have imagined meeting so many wonderful people I now call friends and getting awards for my blog? I'm so not worthy. So thank you so much! You all make this so much fun to do.
Today is my 43rd birthday! Yeah, I'm gettin old. To celebrate I thought it would be fun to give you a present. Okay, I can't give everyone a present, much as I would love to. So, I am going to do a giveaway for one lucky winner. Just leave a comment on this post and you will be entered. One comment per person please. What am I going to give away, you ask? Well, I'm going to fill a box with lots of my favorite things. To see what I like to give away you can look at the posts in the giveaways/swaps category on my sidebar to get an idea of the things I like to share. I will draw a name at random first thing Friday morning. Fun, right?
Hope you all have a fun day and I'll be back on Friday with the winner and some pictures of this weeks thrifted finds. Going walking this morning with my favorite girl and then off to pick blueberries. Tonight, dinner at PF Changs (good thing I'm walking today). TTFN!
