PART 2 OF CONFESSIONS OF A SERIAL COLLECTOR!










Better late than never! I was going to post this Monday morning. Show you all the fun things I purchased this past weekend while I watched Noah, however, life got in the way! I normally watch Noah 2 days a week and thrilled to get that. This week, still thrilled, I have watched him every day! His other Grandma had visitors so he was at my home all week. He is so much fun, I do adore him. However, he is 18 months and 31 pounds. He still likes to be held and cuddled, which is wonderful, but this old lady is tried! I have done no housework, no yard work, mimumal laundry, and no cooking at all. Every bone in by body is in pain! So, please forgive me for being late.

I have taken the weekend pictures, plus a gift my sister-in-law, Maureen, gave me yesterday. The Lady Head Vase was my gift. I just love it! I did get two gifts but the other one is going up on Pink Saturday! The items I have pictured, were purchased at various, boutiques, rummage sales and thrift stores on Saturday. Hope you enjoy them.

I also received an award from my dear friend, Bunny, at http://bunnymissbrenner.blogspot.com/. Bunny is the most honest person, I have ever met and her blog will have you laughing so hard! She is a must read! As soon as my faithful friend, can help me, it will be up for all to see!

Don't forget give away at the end of the month. Oops, in a couple of days! Just leave a comment! Blessings to all! Martha

Love your finds Martha...I have to tell you,I am proud of you, I dont know if I would make it the whole week with my 2 yr old granddaughter. I am exhausted after one day and that is with Jim helping!! She is absolutely into everything! But she is cute and cuddly and has a smile that makes up for all mischief....

Hi Martha....What great finds! Love it...'Confessions of a Serial Collector'...Applies to me, too. As you may remember, I'm a Serial Headvase Collector, so I looked yours up in David Barrons ID catalog. One similar...different color hair and color of flowers, but same pose, hat and face made by Lefton with #1343A, 6" and valued at $105.00. Check the bottom of yours...what a wonderful gift. Come see me...Sue

Very pretty things as always! The lady with the hat is so cute. Great gift! I hope your knees are holding out lifting Noah around and all. I will be preposting my pink sat. later today , as I will be out of town for the weekend.
Blessings Martha!

I bet you've had fun with Noah, but it is tiring, isn't it? I am a serial collector - perhaps we should form a club? That head vase is beautiful - do you have any others! See you on Pink Saturday!

Sares said...

It looks like you are deep in the hunt for treasures still. Noah must be a good little shopper. It's hit and miss with my little nephew. He's either sweet as sugar of a little monster. Congrats on your award and let me know if you need any help with it. Have a great day and I hope you're all ready for Halloween!
