winter finds

I went to one of my favorite resale shops on saturday.
 it's out of town but worth the drive as i always find some fun stuff at great prices. 
 this trip seemed to have a winter theme.
love this scarf it's pink and jadite green 
two perfect colors.

didn't pick-up the fireplace at the thrift shop, i took it home with me from our sale at the elkhorn flea market last may.
 it was my flea market buddy kathy's and 
it could have been yours!
no takers, so lucky me. 

retro snowpants - has to be from the 40-50's.
who knows maybe my uncles wore something similar 

fun blanket and hot pad.

a player piano roll - winter wonderland.
we had a player piano growing up.
loved it.
if i ever win the lottery it will be a must buy.

we stopped in at my sister and brother-in-laws home this last weekend, and was greated by sue's cute halloween display.
that isn't my broom by the way..... 

inside sue showed me her handy solution to a mudroom when you don't have a mudroom.

how cool is this. 
she put a shoe rack inside a vintage trunk to keep shoes organized handy and out of site.
i don't think i have seen this 
in the blogosphere. 
so i had to share.

it was meant to be, as she found this single toy shoe (can you see it -sorry it's a bit blurry) in the trunk.

marine vinyl.

coffee's on

i went to a local thrift shop the other day and this enamal pot caught my eye. 
 it was a good price, good condition and you can't go wrong with anything that has a mushroom on it, well you can.... but i brought it home anyway.
 when i got home i realized it is the same shape as 
catherine holm coffee pots.
it's definately not the 
lotus pattern, and i have never seen this pattern before. 
i did a little looking on etsy and ebay 
and there is a tea kettle in the same pattern on ebay 
and they are calling it catherine holm.

definately need to do more research and
see if my find is a find.

fingers crossed!

last sunday was the last elkhorn flea market of the year.
so sad.

it was a beautiful day, i overdressed, kind of pooped out fast....
so i didn't make it all the way around.

need to go flea market boot camp. 

 here are a few photos from the day.

and here he is.
first time i found hippie tom's booth

hot dog!
i don't think this is an old sign.

but if you have a hot dog, 
you need a pickle.
a huge pickle.

love this sign.
 it will be a long winter, until
 the next elkhorn flea market.
