Sorting & Sifting


I can not believe it has been so many days since my last post! time flies when you're busy. I managed to make it to a flea market and found a few things then I went to an estate auction and Hit the mother load!! Filled my Envoy to the top, every nook and cranny inside plus had the bed of a truck full with furniture. I bought box lots of linens, millinery flowers, bark cloth, vintage clothing, furniture, and the list goes on. When it is such a good price I just can't seem to say no. I worry later about how will I get it home, lol. While I was still unloading and sorting from the auction, I got a call to help sort and clean out a local estate. OH boy more fun stuff!! Jewelry, vintage clothes, linens, and I just started. I found a darling vintage wallpaper hat box that goes in my keep pile! I am so tired though, I woke up Thursday morning and while I was eating my bowl of cereal I was checking on the weather, and I bet I refreshed it 2 times and couldn't understand why it was giving me Thursdays weather. I thought it was Friday! Now that is tired huh? I mean I can understand waking up and not realize what day it is but I had already been to the bathroom for Pete's sake!
Here are a couple of pictures, a cute little vintage pillow with geraniums and the tin of millinery flowers that I am keeping. Guess I better get back to sorting! Maybe I won't get too many customers so I can keep looking for treasures!
