I just bought this cute set!

I collect anthropomorphic kitchen items and and I just purchased this cute tea bag holder set on Etsy.  I got it for WAY less than they are selling for on Ebay.

It comes with a cute wire holder to store them in.  I love it!

Heartbroken over a canned ham! : (

Where do I start?  I have been wanting a vintage camper for it seems like forever after I saw a magazine article about a group of ladies that refurbished their own camper and would meet once a year with other ladies that had refurbish old campers.  My cousins had two that they had restored and I wanted one so badly, but they did not want to sell theirs back in August when I was in Indiana.  Fast forward to March, I started talking about wanting a camper again and my Mom told me to call the cousins and see if they would sell me one of the campers.  I told her that if they wanted to sell surely they would have let me know so I farted around and put off making the call.  I just found out Sunday that they sold one of the campers four months ago.  WHAT???  I was so disappointed!  I got on Craigslist yesterday morning and found a Shasta camper for sale in the same town I live in and it was only $350.00!  I emailed the guy quickly and expressed my interest only to get an email back at the end of the day telling me that he sold it to the first person that emailed him.  I am so hungry for a canned ham that I can taste it!!!

This looks yummy!

Junking withdrawals

I didn't get to go junking this weekend due to the yard sale at the Mansfield Antique Mall.  Two times a year (May and October) the antique mall rents spaces outside in the parking lot for two days to sell your wares.  It's a great way to get rid of items that wouldn't sell in a booth, and also bring traffic to the mall.  My Mom and I made $280.00 for the two days and we will be using the money to pay for our gas when we take a trip to Indiana in August.  I can't wait to go to Indy.  Antiques are so much cheaper there than in Texas and we always come home with a trunk load of great stuff!

Why eat when you can junk?

I decided to make a quick jaunt over to the Savation Army at lunch and I'm glad I went.  I found the following items:

Longaberger basket  $ .99
Vintage tablecloth  $1.00
Vintage Christmas tablecloth  $2.50
Vintage table scarf  $1.99
Vintage Christmas dish towel  $1.99
Salt glazed hand thrown pottery pitcher  $2.99  - This had a very unique handle on it!!

I had to swing into Chick-Fil-A quickly and get a sandwich that I could eat on the way back to work so I wouldn't starve to death this afternoon, but it was worth it!

God Bless America!

Glad they finally nabbed Bin Laden.  Karma caught up with this evil human being.  God bless our military!
