Full Weekend of Finds

Friday night I had a wonderful dinner with my bf and then he let me go to the Goodwill Outlet.  He also put on gloves and helped me dig for goodies.  Isn't he the best?  You know, he wasn't too keen on the idea of this when we first started dating.  I think the idea is growing on him.  Look what we found:

The bf also joined me for an auction on Saturday morning as well.  He's definitely buying brownie points.  Here's what I got:

I also picked up a table full of old bottles... but they will need a good wash before they are camera ready.

Sunday I went in search of the largest bowl in the white/yellow/black Gooseberry set, as I had seen it at a flea market in the last couple weeks.  I went to pick it up, and of course, it was gone.  However, I picked up lots more Pyrex:

My momma also picked up TONS of goodies for me while garage saleing with her sister on Friday morning.  They luckily stumbled upon a barn sale from a woman who is an antique dealer and has been for years.  I may or may not have time to ever photograph it.  But, I will say, there's lots of Pyrex, Fire King, and Hazel Atlas.

Here's to a good week!
