Yard Sale Finds and Vintage Gifts

I hate to admit it but this old girl is 65 today ! It’s funny but I don’t feel that old , at least mentally , and physically  I guess I’m luckier than most , with only the occasional  ache and pain . So I decided I might as well shoot for another 65 !
Anyway yesterday my sis and I did a little yard saleing . and I found a few cute things.
This vintage table cloth and that cute little wood box thing.
I'm not sure what it is or supposed to be , but the first thing that came to my mind was window box.
But I filled it with vintage things , and a cute little hand sewn chicken that my sister made for me.
The little creamer  was a gift for my birthday from a good friend of mine , she found it on Etsy and had it sent to me. The girl knows me well ! Thanks Donna !
She also sent a vintage tea towel that I am using for a table runner in the sun room.
I also found a couple of woven bread baskets yesterday, they will come in handy.
You may or may not have noticed that I have done some switching around of tables again.
I put the farm table I made in the kitchen , and the little kitchen table in the sunroom. I get bored easily .
This picket fence shelf is a display shelf that Pam and I use to use in craft fairs .
I brought it in to put plants on. I like it in the sun room , Do you ?
Well that’s it for today ! I hope you are all having a great weekend !
I’m headed over to my sister’s house for a birthday party !


  1. Happy Birthday Sharon!!! Hope you had a great day!

  2. Sharon,

    First, Happy Birthday! Oh my goodness, what wonderful finds. I love the box (everything in it too)! There's so many ways you can use it. It looks really good on your table. Love your cottage. You have so many vintage things. Such a pretty sunroom and kitchen!

    Have a wonderful week!

  3. First of all, Happy Birthday! The older I get (47) the younger 65 seems to me. I am wishing you another 65! I love your stuff...and wanted to say I love that picket fence shelf is just too cute. I made a fence for inside recently--I like the idea of a shelf. Have fun at your birthday party!

  4. Happy B'day! Love your finds!

  5. Happy Birthday... hope your day was great!!

  6. Happy Birthday Sharon! I love your finds and the box looks great on the table. Love your kitchen!

    Have fun at your birthday party.


  7. Happy birthday! I know how you feel...just doesn't seem possible that I could be 66. Don't you love that garage sales are starting again? Have a good week! Jan

  8. Fabulous finds!

    Happy Birthday! Wishing you many, many (65?) more!
