Happy Birthday to ME!!
Celebrating my birthday ALL weekend!
Started out yesterday going to some of my favorite places!
Found this pink Pyrex Gooseberry bowl at Black Rose
and solid pink loaf pan too! :-)
I love Butterfly Gold. Yay!
A lovely surprise at Care & Share! Butterprint pattern
and square Glassbake dish too!
And, these two beauties! McCoy love!
I love to top off the weekend with a trip to
2nd Ave Thrift . They are open til 8PM on Sunday!
I usually never leave there empty handed.
Pleasantly surprised to find these nice pieces of pottery.
Especially the McCoy flower pot priced at $1.90! YAY!
It's a little beat up but still it's the REAL McCoy! :-)
Big red Pyrex! Yay! Found it at
Bally Brooke Indoor Market last Sunday.
Medium size green Pyrex and green glass...
yesterday at Rice's!
Oh Care & Share! I love you! Haha!
I had my eye on the large size Butterfly Gold bowl
for 2 weeks and was waiting for the green price sticker to go half price!
Got lucky today that it was a GREEN week and the bowl was still there!
Also found the orange Wheat pattern dish in mint condition!
Both of these were in the Care & Share
outlet store... 99 cents!
Stopped over at friends Anna and Jerry's house today.
I love their place. A cute old house right in town filled with
lots of eclectic stuff! I had gone there to see the fabulous piece
of furniture that Jerry found in the trash on his way home
from work... I will save that for another post!
But I got a preview of what I hope will become
2 awesome collections!! I love the way Jerry has
started to display these funky, mid-century ceramic
ash trays. Very cool! Great shapes and colors.
I will be on the look out for these!
and, this pleasant surprise... 2 vintage projectors.
Love these!! They are beautiful.
A great start to a very interesting collection!
I've been meaning to stop at this place and today was the day.
The Sellersville Thrift Store located at
220 North Main Street, Suite A, Sellersville, PA.
I love it! :-)
Picked up this great hobnail McCoy planter
in pale blue (I have it in yellow)
and this nice Florida souvenir plate.
Lots of other goodies there... I'll be going back!
Also located in the same building is
The Treasure Chest, another smaller thrift store
with some nice stuff!
Went back out to Jake's again on Sunday
but this time got there very early and it was in full swing!
I love Jake's! :-)
Then checked out this new indoor market
(well not so new... it's been there 2 years but for some
reason I've never seen it!!) Nice place!
Good stuff! I will definitely go back!
More green glass!
McCoy and Imperial planters!
and, loving these garden sprinklers!!
It was a good day!
It was great to finally get out to Harrisburg to see friends
Colleen, Nicole and their kids!
What a beautiful home filled with family photos,
gorgeous paintings and lots of love!
Oh, and this awesome vintage lunch box collection!!
Here are some highlights!
thanks for sharing Colleen!!
I love visiting the home of friends
Carol and Mark. (See blog post from 3/25/12)
Their sense of style reflects their personality,
their love of nature and their love of animals.
They've got 4 dogs, 2 cats, birds, goats, chickens and ducks!
One of my favorite things in their home is
Carol's collection of vintage ceramic dogs.
It's displayed in a gorgeous antique cabinet in their dining room.
All breeds! So fun!
Thanks Carol for allowing me to show your collection! :-)
Decided to go to the Golden Nugget
on Wednesday morning instead of Sunday
and you know what... I like Wednesday's better! :-)
Yay for this little black and white Pyrex Gooseberry bowl!
and took a quick spin over to Care & Share today!
I can't help myself! I have to go there at least once a week!
I love these Hoosier and Brody green glass vases!
And a piece of green Floraline is always a nice surprise!
A great start to the weekend!
