Hello, My Friends!~~~
On Friday I went to an estate sale in the cute-as-pie section of Alexandria, VA known as Del Ray. The house was from the 1910's or early 20's and had been the rsidence for 73 years of a dear 95 year old lady who had recently moved to Charlottesville. I arrived at the sale mid-morning and pretty much had the hosue to myself. I had the pleasure of speaking to the lady's granddaughter and the lady who had puchase the sweet house. The house, like one I had visited the day before, has great "bones" and the most darling front porch.
I filled two bags with vintage treasures, and most of them came from the triangular-shaped dusty ancient attic. I had so much fun up there and came away covered in dust and cobwebs. I have listed most of my finds in Dime Store Chic and a few I am using in future creations.
Here are my favorite finds:
Just look at these painted wooden cuties! I love their wee pear-shaped faces. The little pink lady in the bonnet is my favorite. They were in a very worn box stuffed into the back of a drawer in a piece of funiture in the attic. I'm not sure where they were made but I'm thinking Spain.
I can't wait to start crafting with them, but right now we are remodeling our basement bathroom and I have to go paint.~~XXOO, Beth
