I am baaaack!
What a whirlwind weekend! I could have stayed another three days and visited with my lovely Aunt and Uncle.
On a sad note...I forgot the cf card for my camera! UGH! I always forget something. Being frugal I didn't want to spend beaucoup francs for a new one so I took pictures with my camera phone! I hope they turn out and if not, well I will be back up there in a few weeks helping with preparations for my cousins wedding in May.
Got a very late start on Saturday. We were feeling kind of lazy and I was a bit under the weather with the food I ate the night before. (Fast food ALWAYS tears me up...why do I even TRY???)
Even with a late start (10:30 am) I found some great items.
The fabulous yellow aluminum pans from Montgomery Wards. $3.00. I have a serious love affair with aluminum. See more about that here.
My mother had a set of these in a dark boston baked bean red. These are the pots I learned to cook with and I was far too cool to accept them as my first cook ware when I moved out, opting for teflon pans. UGH.
There was one large lid for the dutch oven, but no dutch oven and another pan missing the lid and the handle.
Bottom of the pan....
At an Estate sale I found this lovely...It weighs 21 pounds
Of course I had to have it...I love old books and do you see the gorgeous crown?
Date in book is 1963.
Then I found this small book...
The title is Le Chevalier de Maison-Rouge (The Knight of Maison-Rouge: A Novel of Marie Antoinette)
by Alexandre Dumas.
Inside is a label...Superior, Wisconsin Public Library
The book is in rough shape, I may use it for decoupage or just as prop book.
These really strange looking hangers, they twist at the ends and make a crazy loop.
.50 for eight.
Stopped at a wondeful rummage sale at the Vineyard Church and picked up loads of clothing and items for my cousins wedding. Prices were phenominal! My Aunt and I walked away with loads of stuff and only spent $14.00 each!
Will post more of our finds tomorrow and some pictures from my phone.
