Happy Birthday to me!

Today is the big 34! Can’t say I’m standing on either side of the fence on this one. Neither here nor there about it. But I do know one thing. It gave me a reason to spend a day antiquing and shopping! LOL!!!

I spent Saturday at the first Springfield antique show of 2011 with my friend Jamie. And then we hit the 3 HUGE antique malls right here in my town. We bought it all!

Happy birthday to me!

Lets have a look see at my goodies!

011

An awesome 8 gallon crock. $35.00

A cool enamel ladle. $3.00

An adorable set of herb boxes. $4.00

014

Look at that cute snowman! 5 bucks!

015016

Look at this adorable pumpkin and crow! $5.00!  STEAL!!!!

017

Three mashers! I’m starting a collection!

018

3 strainers…

019

That I turned into the MOST adorable mini shoofly's ever! I paid $1 or $2 for each of them. YES!!!

020

This is what I was looking for all day. A pewter cream and sugar set to go with my Christmas teapot. Found it! 3 bucks for the set!

021

This huge Mason! 4 bucks! A grater for $1 that Jamie ended up buying back from me. lol!

023

My super find of the day. Two AWESOME mini books to set atop my ginormous Webster dictionary in the dining room! One is actually another Webster dictionary and the other a smaller book written in German. They look cool in there!

024

3 great wooden spoons. Another collection I’m starting. Disappointingly I paid 5 bucks each for these. They were all marked either 6 or 8 but I talked the dealers down. But I DO really like them and that seemed to be the general consensus price across the board for these. Any way, I don’t feel bad… it’s my BIRTHDAY!!! LOL!

026

This fantastic sifter. $9 bucks at one of 3 of my hometown antique malls that we hit on the way home. They have a really big one, probably 2.5 feet across, at the expensive mall in town. It's marked $38. Anyone know if that’s a decent price? I’ thinking of going back and getting it.

Here’s Jamie’s Hoard!

3 gallon Crock. $20    Star $5

Hi Carmen,
Happy Birthday! Hope you spend it doing things you love to do and everyone close to you treats you special! What incredible finds you have shared photos of with us! I too collect lots of old things. Will have to gather them and post photos too but I probably would have to use oodles of pages to post them! Again, have a wonderful Birthday and many more to come!
