My Backyard....

After spending 5 hours in my yard today, it came to me what to put on the blog today! Here are some things I have collected over the years(most of the time intended for the Antique Mall). I am going to rest now!

Cream Lovers...

Another cream picture feast from a friend of mine at Lone Star Antique Mall. This booth is "Bountiful" and Felicia does some incredible stuff! The best news is that her prices are GREAT! Could be why the stuff does not last very long. If you see something you better hurry. A lady bought a shabby night stand while I was trying to take pictures.

Some Fun 50's Prom Dresses....

Ladies always get nostalgic as they see these wonderful 50's Prom Dresses. Last week a group of sisters took the dress forms down, stood behind each and took pictures. Fun!

The Shabby Y

Some wonderful Cream stuff from a friend of mine (Dorothy) at the Lone Star Antique Mall. Her booth is "The Shabby Y". She has a wonderful workshop in her back yard and does the most creative stuff. I always laugh when I see her roll in loads and loads of stuff to re-do her booth and I think she will never get all of that in, but she does and it always looks perfect.

New Blue Vintage Tea Cart...

Just found this WONDERFUL vintage blue wicker tea cart. It wheeled around my house for a while, but finally ended up in the "Blue" booth at Lone Star.

The Funky Monkey

The Funky Monkey...Only the GREATEST store ever. Meet some very dear friends, Amy (the owner), Lisa and Emily. If you ever get to the Dallas/Fort Worth area, it is worth the trip to the Funky Monkey (in Keller Texas). Wonderful vintage finds drenched in shiny jewelry...and the hospitality is GREAT! It would take a whole roll of film to take pictures of all the Funky Monkey stuff in my house. I saw a few Christmas things being priced...can't wait until the holiday season. My pictures can't do justice to this amazing just have to experience it. Tell them that Denis sent ya!

75% off Treasures...

Don't you just love it when you are driving home on a Sunday afternoon and you see an unexpected Estate Sale sign. You make a hurried u-turn (legal of course) and floor the accelerator running kids and dogs off the road. It is after 4 o'clock so you slam your car with burning tires into park and rush to see if they will let you in. You get there as they are closing up, but your tears and pleas convince them to take pity and let you in. Then the clouds part and a choir starts to sing as they mutter the most beautiful words ever...everything is 75% off! Although there is not much left, your treasure detector kicks in and you start to spot stuff buried deep below the piles of clothes that no one found...Amatures! What is this, a wonderful perfume bottle for only .25 cents! You start to doubt your math...75% of $1...could it really only be a quarter??? The choir gets louder as you find a pair of pearls for a dime. Your hands are shaking and your knees feel weak, but you rush to the bedroom where more treasures are buried. You squeel as you find a pink hand mirror for .75 cents...and another perfume bottle for .50 cents. Your arms become so full that you must "Start a Pile" at the front. You dance as your pile grows until finally, all the left-over treasures are yours! You gain your composure as they start to add up your total. You start to rock back and forth in anticipation of a miracle...then you drool a little when they tell you that all of these treasures are only $12.50. After you gain consciousness and shew away the paramedic from the 911 call they made after you passed out, you gleefully collect your treasures and load them into your car (where the lingering smell of burning rubber makes you a little nauseous).
These are some pics of my 75% off Estate Sale treasures. Not sure if I am more in love with the treasures or bargain. Gotta make my way to the mall and get these in our booths now to pay for the tires that I have to replace.

Some New Pink...

Found some pink treasures this week, so spent some time at Lone Star and spruced the Pink Booth up a little. It was hot, but worth it! Sorry to the customers who had to wade through our mess to shop. Lone Star was a very busy mall today...Yahoo. Got some pics of the new blue stuff that I will post later.
