He was not gone 30 minutes before Olivia and I were deep into a Goodwill searching for treasures.
We were determined to make the final fleaing before college count.
Tying up all the loose threads so to speak.
Here are a few of our finds during the week. We also managed eating, shopping, crafting, swimming, and working out at the gym.
And a quite silly photo session.
Plenty of old movies.
Lots of tea - iced for me, hot for Olivia.
I bought every last one of these quilts because they were priced right and Olivia wanted one to take to her dorm.
Two ladies came by as we were making our stack and asked if I planned to buy them all.
I had a slight twinge of quilt guilt, but promptly shook it off.
A stack of flash cards.
One of my favorite books.
A 45 with a PROM label.
Three graniteware pans - one with a make-do.
A vintage photo frame.
A huge Villeroy & Boch Dresden (1852 J.) pitcher.
A foot high.
Ivory with gold.
Know anything about it?
Let me know.
I guess the model number is 1852 and the J. is the designer? Those are handwritten next to the V&B stamp.
This black table is getting a makeover as you read this post.
A lovely blue government box.
A black wire magazine stand.
An old blackboard with a tray.
Oak-framed mirror with delicious age spots.
I have been looking for a dress form on a wrought iron base with casters for years. I could never find one to fit my pocketbook.
She had just rolled into the shop with her sister.
I saw her from afar and fell quite in love.
Olivia and I rolled and carried her down the street and into the car before someone else saw her.
We had a wonderful time together.
It is hard to believe the baby of the family is headed to college.
It seems like yesterday she was headed to kindergarten.
This will be treasure week on my blog.
I have lots to show and tell.
I also have a GREAT swap in mind for the Swap & Tell party on Wednesday.
