It has been quite the busy week for me! I had a midterm in one of my MBA classes and started a new one in the same night. On top of that, I am trying to find time to get my thrifting in, oh yeah, and a semblance of a social life.
Wednesday on the way home from work, I stopped at one of my usual thrifts. They finally brought the Christmas goodies out. If you follow my Facebook page, you've already seen these.
I went to Bloomington, Indiana for an auction on Saturday. It's the home of my (undergrad) alma mater. Go Hoosiers! I love visiting this town. I miss it from time to time. The auction was just down the street from where I lived my final semesters at IU. After the auction I stopped in one of my favorite antique stores. I saw (and bought) some great stuff. The photo below is of a Fire King Jadeite tulip pattern bowl. I have NEVER seen one of these in person. I always assumed they were an urban legend. Great piece!
Here's what I brought home from the auction and the Bloomington Antique Mall.
|I thought this advertising mailbox was pretty cool!|
|This green depression batter bowl is huge!|
|Couldn't believe I was able to get 2 of these jadeite batter|
bowls. The pink HA plates were from the antique mall.
|All from the antique mall except the cookie cutters.|
|These are adorable, but could get annoying rather quick|
if they end up in the wrong hands.
|Sometimes you have to pay up for pretty linens. 2 of the|
Christmas tablecloths have already been claimed.
Today (Sunday) I knew I had to make my way to the booth. I needed to bring more Christmas stuff. I also had to fill in lots of empty spaces in my booth. YAY! I spent a few hours rearranging and pricing new goodies. During this time tornadoes were hitting all around Indiana. The sirens went off about 6 times while I was there working. We got lucky and weren't touched. I can't say the same for other surrounding cities. I hope everyone is okay that was affected by the tornadoes today.
Please take a small tour through my space. I'm loving it more and more each week!
This brings us to this evening. On my way home from the antique mall I had a hunch to stop into a particular Goodwill store. I love when my hunches are right.
|Pink Texasware bowl, pink/red enamel bowl, FK lustreware|
bowl, 3 orange/yellow FK mugs, cute pitcher, and a full set
of Pyrex homestead bowls.
