That's the cutest, most colorful vintage find ever! Like you, I never knew of such a thing, but wow, what a find. Well worth putting up with the other 2 noisy shoppers. Patience is such a virtue.

Elaine Richardson

Wow! Welcome back! You were missed.


Just seeing that little Scottie prompted a huge flashback! My grandmother had one of these--I had completely forgotten it until I saw yours. I loved it . . .

Patience is definitely a virtue. Welcome back! You were definitely missed and I've ready to tag along on your thrifting adventures! Go get-em!

Better than nothing! Garage sale season started around me... and I hit an amazing sale that has me optimistic about garage sales. We'll see how long it lasts.


I have had very similar thoughts lately about the complaining thing. I like the way you put it. And I missed you, too!


I adore the blotter and it is a great score but totally get the disappointment when you are ready for a honey hole sale and dive in with a pocket full of cash and then can't manage to find anything. Boo.

Ah Barbara, I miss your witicisms......Thanks for a morning chuckle. :)

What a score on the jadite/jadeite! I, too, obsess over the spelling.

Hmmm, no buying mistakes? For the whole season? Please keep us updated on that one... Best of luck! It reminds me of someone speaking out on Jan. 1st and saying they will lose 40 lbs by springtime. Such a hopeful and sincere pledge.


Phew! I am so glad you are back! You make me want to go to a sale....


Keep your head down and don't make eye contact. Either that or kill them with kindness. Depending on my mood, that is how I approach some of the crazy people I run into at the sales. HA!

Still hibernating over here but I keep popping my head out to see if YOU are done hibernating! I thought I'd seen it all in the jadite/jadeite world. Makes you wonder what else is out there, doesn't it? And I've heard that keeping your head down and mouth shut really is the best way to shop an estate sale. I'll have to try that sometime!

This sale must have been bad if it didn't receive any apron scores from you. Not even a beige one.

Darling Scottie! I have been in line with the same kinda people. What's the rush! ;) Have a great day! xo Heather


So good to have you back. All the lovely Christmas things - can't wait for December - well, Halloween first obviously.
Good to hear you don't have real foxhunts like the dreadful ones we have over here.
