TREASURES, TREASURES AND MORE TREASURES!














Oh, the places I have been to and the treasures I found. Saturday is treasure hunting day and I scored big time today! Did I ever tell you I collect vintage, paper weights? I just love the old vintage paper weights with the flowers inside and I just picked up two more beauties to add to my collection. At this same estate sale, I found this beautiful, vintage, beaded, white purse. It also will go nicely with the collection of vintage purses I have. Did you notice the pink Wedgwood box? This is only my fourth piece of Wedgwood, isn't it stunning? Also added more shoes to my collection. The gold cup, did you see the gold cup? Gorgeous! It is so fun when you find things you love, like vintage, costume jewelry, for a low price. It is like Christmas in August! It is a beautiful day in Southern California, the weather is perfect! My son is having a party tonight to celebrate his 20th birthday with his friends. Tomorrow, Mom and Dad get to celebrate with him. Tonight, we only pay!

hello dear Martha...glad you scored big time. It's so fun when that happens. I found a few things myself. That pale green dish is to die for. It would go perfect in my newly green dining room. Just got back from Palm Springs and the 100 degree weather to find LA's nice weather. Seems like it's gonna heat up again though. Have a nice week and don't work too hard.

tootles,

Dearest Martha,
Thank you for visiting my blog! I know, for a newcomer, the contents of my latest post could send you for a loop, but stay tuned for you shall be a participant and spectator of an original play, written by yours truly! Back in March I wrote a play and it was a blast. Do keep posted! How did you find me? You have lovely collectibles! I am from Whittier Calif. and I had a cousin who lived in the Foothills but has since relocated. My mother-in-law lives in Whittier and used to have a great little collectible/antique shop. You evoke great memories of California yard sales where great finds could be snatched up for a song! Take care and keep posted, Anita
