My Weekend Finds
Time for another episode of My Weekend Finds. And a couple vacation pictures thrown in at the end!
First up is an old Crown birdcage that I got at an antique store while on vacation. After I bought it, I thought it would be really fun to count how many cages I own now. After I got to 7, it stopped being fun, and I'm now convinced that I need some kind of support group! I originally started buying them to plant my hens and chicks in, so that the squirrels wouldn't dig them up in the ground. It's spiraled way beyond that now. I just like them!
A vintage magazine, a Smokey ruler, and an old flower frog still in it's package.
An old Avon bottle in the shape of a dovecote, which has been on my wish list. I just love old Avon bottles, don't you? And a couple pixies to add to the collection.
A cute deck of cards and an old card game that I've never heard of.
These are some of the cards from the game. Aren't they cute? But why is the boy the pilot? The girl just looks way more competent to me!
I have lots more finds to share, but I'll wait 'til REDnesday and White Wednesday. Now onto the vacation pictures. We went to Phillips, Wisconsin and stayed in a cabin on Solberg Lake. This was our view from the cabin. We would get up at 5:30 every morning and fish off that dock.
There were always lots of loons to watch on the lake.
The biggest catch. . . . . . ..
And the smallest!
And every single sunset was a real beauty. It was a great vacation, and I really miss that lake! So, did you find anything this weekend? Or perhaps go on vacation?!
