Vintage Photo

I really hadn't planned on going out this weekend but when I got up on Saturday morning I changed my mind and decided to hit a few yard sales.

This is my absolute favorite find from my outing yesterday. It is a photo from Platt's Funeral Home located here in Augusta GA. I think Platt's may be one of the oldest funeral homes in Georgia. The photo is just amazing. Look at all the details - the windows in the hearse are just fabulous. The women in the picture is beautiful. While it is a smidge creepy, it is way more FABULOUS!

I also picked up a few vintage toys.

The toys will go to Etsy but the picture will stay with me and go into my growing Augusta collection.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

This Week's Junk

I didn't think I was going to get to check out any of the estate sales this weekend, but I ended up having some time during lunch on Friday and was able to dash by a couple. The first sale was pretty good, real junky. I just wish I could have gotten there earlier. I have a feeling I missed out on some good stuff. I still managed to find a couple of things and one really exciting find. Really just a bunch of smalls for my Etsy shop. I love the little sawdust doll but the 1950's calendar covers are my favorite (I may have to keep them!)

On a second pass, I saw a large roll and decided to investigate. I am so glad I did, it was a roll of 1940's (I believe) equestrian wallpaper. Just beautiful!

I did stop by a second sale but didn't get anything. Just wasn't my kind of junk. Oh well, they can't all be winners.

Yard Sales

I wasn't real thrilled with the selection of Estate Sales this weekend so I decided to try hitting a few yard sales instead. I had to run out on Saturday morning anyway to pick up something that just came to me (that happens sometimes) and thought I would try my luck with the yard sales while I was out. I really didn't find much but did pick up a few things, nothing really exciting. However the item I was going to pick up on Saturday made up for the lack of finding any fabulous junk at the yard sales. So here she is, and she is fabulous. She is a reproduction but I love her anyway!

I'm not going to lie, those eyes are a little creepy but overall she is just gorgeous!

Here are a few of the things I found at the yard sales.

Hoping for better sales next weekend!

Hope yours has been wonderful!
