Bubble burst...


After all the trouble with the prices I had in Arkansas...I came home thinking I would find so much.  Until my bubble burst!  Not much to be found this week  Only a few items worth picking.   


Jadeite, pink and purple child's blanket.  This has the cutest cats on it.  It is in really great shape and well worth keeping in tact...until I find something worthy of using it on.


Tell me how they went from this gorgeous shade of green in 50's to the awful shade of avocado in the 70's.  Maybe they burnt it?  Just a thought.


Sweet Lefton playpen planter.  The kind the kids could play in, not just sleep in.  


A nice edition to my puzzles, this cute Donald Duck.  I haven't checked to see if all the pieces are there, but it appears to be in good shape.  It has a darling graphic.


Funny after finishing this post I feel like I found more treasures.  Sometimes it takes more than one look. I think I will just ride that bubble instead...right into next week.........

Lovely finds...as always. You do such a good job with your camera shots. And I've never told you how much I look forward to your vintage graphics at the top of each new blog entry. Have a wonderful night and thank goodness it's almost FRIDAY!!

Oh the blankie is just darling I too love the colors and the kitties so cute. Yeah those colors were bad in those days and then that orange shag carpeting too we had some of that in a home we bought. Earth tone days, lots of people still have that, we've had to removed it from two houses we owned in the past.

I know what you mean about slim pickings - my local thrift stores are wiped out. My theory is people are gearing up to sell at yard sales -- then they'll donate the leftovers. At least I hope so.

I love your finds. And I agree with you about the green. Why would anyone want to mess that up?

Love the blanket!
I so agree on the avocado green of the 70's. I didn't like it then and I still don't!!!

Love your blog....I'm "oohing and aahing" as I go thru them! I used to collect vintage coloring books, mostly from the 50's and always uncolored in. Still have them - you have re-invigorated my interest in them. I also used to look for vintage paperdolls, or as we called them "cut-outs", also the 50's style. I can remember playing for hours with them. Hard to find them uncut. Anyway, thanks for a trip down memory lane!
