For Mother's Day back in May, one of my gifts was that The Mister watched the kids so I could go junking ALL BY MYSELF for as long as I wanted! That man knows what I truly want! I hit a few antique stores and a few thrift stores and came up with some goodies.
This stack of wooden berry baskets and the vintage floral tablecloth beneath it were from a neighborhood yard sale. The cloth was dirty but came nice and clean with a good OxiClean soak, and I was tickled to find the berry baskets because I had just watched this: Studio 5 Berry Baskets video
jaw-dropping foray last summer. I poked gingerly through the bins and managed to unearth a small handful of vintage ornaments and an Ovenex Starburst muffin pan. I try to only buy them when they're still pretty and shiny, but since the grand total for all of these items plus the vintage pattern in the next photo was $1.07, I thought it was worth getting.
giant blingy vintage brooches are kind of my thing, I believe I'll be keeping this beauty. One just never knows when one might need something suitable to wear to a Diamond Jubilee, right?
Did you find any good junk this weekend? I'm linking up with Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday!
