It seems like everything I found this week came in a group of more than one. Not that I am complaining, I love an instant collection! Above is a group of brightly colored noisemakers. I think I will use them as part of the Independence Day decorations. Oddly enough, I happened to pick up a December 1999 issue of Home Companion at the same sale, which featured a collection of noisemakers. That made my heart sing just a little.
My husband spotted a shoebox just filled with old glass bead decorations. What a good eye he has! I love them all so much I sat in the car digging in the box instead of moving onto the next sale on my list. Cue that heart singing again.
The cutest tea towel ever. And in very good condition. My meager tea towel collection is finally growing. I suppose they saw a lot of use and thus weren't long lived, unlike the tablecloths.
And last but not least, the tablecloths. A bit hard to see in the sun dappled grass, but they are lovely. Sometimes I can go weeks and weeks without seeing any tablecloths at all, not even ones I don't really care for or are too expensive, and some weeks there are so many I can hardly choose.
I definitely prefer the latter. How about you? Do you prefer an instant collection or the thrill of the hunt?
