Oh my, the past 3 days have been busy, but my luck is holding steady, at least for now. I picked up the old composition angel at our county's first county wide garage sale this morning. I passed her by the first time, because even after negotiating the price was still too high. We finished shopping, got in the car, sat there in the a/c eating kettle corn and drinking lemonade, and I decided to go back for her. When the seller saw me return for her, she immediately said she was mine for my original negotiated price as long as I would guarantee a good home for her. LOL It isn't as if I was going to let the cats eat her!
As it turns out there was something else in the box that I should be able to Ebay for more than I paid for the angel anyway.
There were other beauties to be had this weekend as well. This stuff is sitting on a gorgeous vintage duvet cover. There is also a beautiful old wedding cake topper (I have 2 really sweet ones now), another set of canisters (always useful for holding things in the pantry or sewing room), pink velvet bows strung on a string, an awesome old medicine cabinet, a Simtex dish towel, and a pink glasbake jar? pot? thing. I always see those glasbake things, and never with a lid. Someone on Ebay seems to think they are honey pots. Maybe one of you knows what they are?
I also managed to see not one, but two, movies this weekend. I really only wanted to see Waitress but because of projector problems we had to see 1408 on Friday instead, and I had to go back to see Waitress by myself. If you haven't seen Waitress yet, go now! It is a quirky, campy, funny, sad and beautifully simple movie all rolled into one. Besides, it will inspire you to make some "Why-won't-magic-fairies-come-fold-the-laundry?" pie.
