My awesome garage sale find

Stopped a garage sale on the way home from church today and I found this!!! It needs to be cleaned up and oiled, and a new belt but I am thrilled with it!!!
I love it!!! I'm going order the belt and other supplies on ebay and get it back in working order. I'm tempted to paint the cabinet white but not sure if I should or not....

Have a blessed day,

Fall Pumpkins

 I made a few pumpkins this week. I can't believe it's "back to school" time already!!
 This summer went by way to quick for me....

 I'm really enjoying the cool temps in Chicago today! (Low 70's) Love having the air off and the windows open!
 This cool weather really puts me in the mood to make Fall items for my shop! And my own home too!
 I LOVE Fall!! Everything about it!!! The weather , the upcoming holidays, the food and candy (I love candy corn!!) And pumpkin pie!!!
Hope you enjoyed seeing my Fall pumpkins!

Have a blessed day,

More Of My Yard Sale Finds

Here are a few more of the vintage goodies I found at the local yard sales this past week! ( there's still more but I will share on another day) I'm so excited!!! I usually don't find this many vintage items all in the same week!!        

This first photo is a bunch of vintage trims and a lace dresser scarf. 

So thrilled with all these lace trims!! I want to make some vintage-y looking angels for my Christmas tree and maybe some for my Etsy shop this year so i've been looking around for some vintage pretties to use on them but I'm still working on that idea.... I made a couple of tester doll bodies but I'm not totally happy with them yet.....

I also found some vintage crochet doilies, dresser scarfs  and hankies (always love that!!)

This is the first time I am posting to my blog from my iPhone and photos are not posting in the right direction ( they're sideways ) I'll have to figure that out...Ugh. 

I got these 2 trays full of vintage buttons for $3!!! (So happy!!!) Love vintage buttons!!! 

I washed them and they are drying on trays outside ( I can't stand the smell of WET vintage buttons!)

I still have more awesome vintage yard sale finds to share with you but I'll save those things for another post!
Hope you enjoyed seeing all my yard sale goodies!!

Have a blessed day,

Yard Sales

   Lots of yard sales around my neighborhood yesterday and today! 

I found lots of good vintage junk!!  This rusty vintage postage scale was just one of the goodies I found!! I love it but I'm not sure if I will keep it or not..... Our house is very small so there is not a lot of places to display things! And I can't seem to find the right spot for it! :/ .  I'll have to move it around a bit and see....

 I think it might look better in the kitchen... I just wish my counter tops were a solid color or wooden, then my vintage goodies would look better on them... I hate my counter tops but it's not in the budget to change them right now so I will just have to deal with them.... :( 

I'll share more of my yard sale goodies soon!
