Just Can't Help It!











I have a disease, it is not life threatening at the moment, but it is getting close!
I just can not seem to pass up anything different and unusual.
My Sister-in-law says it is because I see beauty in what others want
gone. I hope she is right, just hope I can find others who want this
beauty too! Or else my house will be over flowing again.

Three
sales this morning, one did not have anything I felt that I must have.
The other I bought a angle figure, no marks etc. But detailing is incredible. Any ideas?
Also a small crystal lamp, a Radio Flyer Sled, not sure what to do with this yet, I will let you know, they are only selling for $10 on E-Bay. Also snagged some Napco figures, and an Italian Clock, electric and works, But I do not trust it.

The third sale was held at the Kennett Quakers Meeting House, they have this sale 2x's
a year. It is hit or miss. I always end up buying something. I came
home with books a wonderful piece of handwork, a creamer that matches a
set I already own,and a set of prints along with a very old child's
bookcopy written in the 1800"s. The nut cracker is for my husband, the lovable nut, that I would like to crack sometimes.

All in all a good day to buy things I really do not need, just have to feed the addicition some how.

Check out Vintage Re-Style this week Clock Cases.

Hi, Dona - Looks like you found some interesting things in spite of the snow! I found an old sled, too, and I think I'm going to decorate with Christmas ribbon n' stuff and either put it on the front porch or by the fireplace. Whadaya think?

Dang, we buy the same stuff! I think I bought those pictures last week, too! Or very similar, anyway. There must be others like us out there who like the different and unusual, don't 'cha think?

I love the sled and skates, I can just picture them on someone's front porch.

Guess what? I got a job (Dang economy) I wish I didn't have to, but I am excited about it. I will be teaching elementary kids to read. Should be more stable than subbing anyway. Just want you to know that I haven't forgotten you.

Hope you had a Merry Christmas and I hope your New Year is happy and prosperous.
