A Few Fun Finds

Sorry I have been AWOL…just hit a bit of a bump….you know the “I just don’t feel like doing anything” bump?  I know they pass so I just was patient….:)

A few of my most recent finds on Etsy and Ebay….I was amazed at how reasonable these Merrill Publishing Ruth E Newton books were….So I got two of the same! lol

I also saw this set in an ad from World Market…it is 199.00  on sale….wouldn’t this be perfect to serve Easter dinner on?????  LVOE the color!  The price in incredible too!  If I didn’t already have a table and chairs  out on my covered patio, this is what would be there!

Easter 12

Hop on over….!  Click on the bunnies!  ( I wish I knew why png’s have this back round on Windows Live Writer…any one know why? )

I have a few more things but for today this will do!  I am hoping to get up the last shelf that is for my dollhouse in my hobby room this week….then I can finally show you how cute it came out!  Have a wonderful night!

What a fun visit to your lovely site for Rednesday - full of sweet family memories from when I was young - and read books very similar. Not to mention getting to find similar ones when my grandkids came along, and enjoying reading them all over again to them. Thanks for a sweet treat.

Welcome back. I am completely smitten with your gorgeous books. Those straws are dandy too. I might need to invest in some fancy straws for upcoming birthday celebrations. Happy soon to be Easter.

The Lilymeru fabric is adorable! I saw so many cute prints on clothing when I was in Korea. Lily is on vacation so I can't go take a closer look on her Etsy shop!

Oh I don't know how you come across books like that, every time I visit Ebay I never score anything like this, you really have the knack for finding them.

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

Wow! Great finds - vintage, new, ebay, and etsy too!

The books are so precious.

Erica of Golden Egg Vintage said...

OMG! It's midnight, and I can't keep my eyes open. But there is too much cuteness going on in this post. I'll revisit it in the A.M.
Need to investigate your fabric and those cookie transfers!
Goodnight! ;)

Happy Easter my friend!

What great finds! I just ordered some striped paper straws, I love the way they look. And that table set.......I don't have a place to put that, either, but I wish there was a World Market in this neck of the woods, just so I could check it out. Happy REDnesday!

Speedy Lady said...

The books are great. They look new to me. Also love the dinette set. World Market is such a fun place to shop.

Hope you have a good rest of the week!
