Practical Pig, Play Pig and Sailor Pig. Hmm...I know I am by all regards Practical Pig but I have to say that I would be most comfortable in Sailor Pigs outfit. II do hope I don;t snarl through the day with that look on my face like that P.P. does?
Now I know that Play Pig would be living in this Pink house. Can you believe how much this looks like a dollhouse. The estate sale was across the street.
This is the ugly part of estate sales. Hot houses filled with boxes and dust, basements that smell and items that have been covered in grease and dust for years.
After a quick sort...this is the bad...all the stuff that didn't make the cut. Curlers that were in the tin, old wax candles in a grab bag with an alka seltzer bottle I wanted and a few 80's Christmas balls that have seen their last day. All trash.
The good. Beautiful Rudolph Christmas book, tiny records, empty box of Christmas candy (free) because it held the ornaments. Every thing has been cleaned and wiped free of dust.
I just couldn't leave them.
Only two little linens but this fridge was amazing.
At a mere four inches these treats are calorie free.
A few items for Dr. Dan's room that is still under construction.
(We cannot put the oil based paint on the shelves until it cools down.)
Pink pottery, tin and Whitman cards.
(Reagan gets on this quilt every single time I get it out.)
This jar was on the back porch and so dirty I nearly left it. Wait until I get my beach glass in it.
Sew on Rhinestones in 50's colors. Hoops from a bag and an assortment of hooks found in the alka seltzer bottles?
What I left behind were tin dollhouses and barns priced well over their worth. A Sears Catalog from 1953 was bargain priced at $49? Children's books marked above eBay prices. Its all going to be there on half price day and that is still way too much for me.
