Rummage Tag Sale Vintage Finds

Wanted to get a quick post up
I'll be Babysitting a couple of our
Grand-peeps for a few days
so I'm certain I will be very busy...

Here are a few of the 
Vintage goodies I picked up
over the weekend
These two little dollies
were just waiting for me.
I hit this sale late and there they sat...
Just waiting for me $2 each
I can't believe no one wanted them!

A box of hand made potholders
Vintage never used
and a Couple of Vintage
little Girl Baby Dresses

They are in pretty good condition
and it's getting harder and harder
to find Vintage Children's clothes
and for a reasonable price~

Tiny little buttons and
sweet smocking
precious hand embroidered detail

These delightful Vintage Pins
I guess maybe Party Favors at one time?
I thought they were so cute
I had to scoop them up!

A cute Vintage Nursery Planter
Mr. Lamb riding in style!
Priced 50 cents

2 Ceramic Ornaments
not bad for 25 cents each

And a Pretty Metal
Keepsake Box...

And there you have it not a bad weekend,
and best news I start working for a
New Real Estate Firm later this week
all the paper work is signed and I'm
ready to rock!
It's exciting so once my
babysitting commitment is over
I'll set-up my new office!

I better get going I'm off 
to our daughters house I'll be
sleeping there and bring the peeps
back to our house in the daytime
Thanks for stopping by~

Oh I'm so jealous!! LOL! LOVE those sweet dollies you brought home! I'm busy crocheting a couple of spring outfits for a couple of dollies myself this weekend. They probably would have been done by now, if it wasn't for the beautiful weather we had. It was just too nice to stay cooped inside, so we didn't!.. Have fun with the Grandpeeps this week!! ~tina

Margaret said...

So excited for you! Love all your finds! My Grandma used to crochet those doilies with that special thread. Sending your box of goodies out on Tuesday morning!
Have fun babysitting.

Love the dolls and the little dresses! So cute!

Scrap for Joy said...

The dolls are so sweet...I have 2 Ginny dolls that were mine from childhood (That makes them antiques...they must be 50+years old)and the dresses are beautiful. Congratulations on the new job. You sure have a lot going on in your life at all times Diane! Time spent with grandkids is priceless...have fun!

You always find the most fabulous things, Diane! I FINALLY found some sweet vintage dollies last week--love them!

Have so much fun with your sweet grandbabies--enjoy every little moment!


My Vintage Mending said...

Diane that planter is just darling. It doesn't take much pink and blue to make me weak. What a fantastic basket full of goodies. I think we might have had a bit of a fuss on our hands going after the same things. Congratulations on your new position. I do hope you will keep us posted on all you goings on still. Smiles...Renee

Awwwwww, I'm so in love with all your little treasures. So cute, I just feel like going to an antique shop tomorrow to get a fix! I am your newest follower. I just started my blog, Ric Rac and Polka Dots, and it will have all kinds of vintage related themes and projects. I hope you can stop by and visit, and please leave me a note and tell me what you are up to! Thanks for posting all these beautiful pics, and I hope to get a chance to get to know you better!

Hi Dianne,

Wow, you got some great finds! The little doll on the left looks like a Ginny doll. I recognize the face.
Have fun with your grandbabies! I can't believe no one wanted those clothes too!

Thanks so much for visiting and following. I get so excited when I get to meet really creative and talented people, and you definitely fit that description. My mom was born and raised in SanFrancisco, and my older brother was born there. Then there was an earthquake, and my Dad (that charming sailor she met from Wisconsin) was so terrified he moved the whole family back to Wisconsin - and here I was born. I love it here, but I think I would have loved being raised in California. Maybe not in the big city. I remember visiting and it was amazing but so crowded and busy. I loved visiting it, but I am not a big city girl! More of a small town, lots of grass and trees type. I love about a mile from Lake Michigan here, it's beautiful. If I had been raised there I would have ended up in some artsy oceanside town, I'm certain. Anyhow, here I am in Wisconsin, yet through the wonders of technology I get to meet amazing people from everywhere. Next time I go antiquing, hopefully this weekend, I will be using fresh eyes to find treasures that I might have missed prior to seeing all your beautiful finds. Thanks again for visiting, I'm so happy to meet you!
