Giveaway goodies...Swap goodies...Shopping with the gals... Oh MY!

I received a most wonderful box of goodies from Linda over at Parkers Paradise! If you haven't gone over to visit her blog, you need to! Love Linda and she had a giveaway with several winners... I was lucky to receive a fun filled box of goodies! The picture doesn't show off as well as it should... So many goodies, from a great little canister tin to couple of ditty bags.. Tart warmer with tarts... wooden bowls.... fun little pail and more! OH Linda thank you for such a fun box!!! When I got home today from a "girls day out" I had another fun box waiting for me from Char over a the pickled pepper patch! Another great blog to go visit!!! She was my surprise summer swap partner that Misi organized over at the 1890gable house musing... Again, other must visit on the blog list!

Thank you Char for wonderful swap goodies... I'm cleaning tomorrow getting ready for the big graduation party and I will be finding home for all my new treasures from you and Linda..

There's a great cupboard tuck of the pledge of Allegiance... Drawer filled with flowers. (This I think will be going in the bathroom for a summer touch..) Tart burner with some of her soy tarts and a place mat! YIPPEE!!! this will all go to great use during the party! Thanks char for another fun box!!!

I probably shouldn't of been out playing and goofing off today... I should of been home getting ready for the party, taking it slow, instead of crazy at the last minute.... OOPS.... But, Sandy rarely has a free day to play so off to the Volo Antique Mall... None of us had ever been there... This place is HUGE!!! So to say a few treasures were found by each of us, is no lie! Many laughs, yummy lunch, a great girls day!!!!!

Cally and Sandy looking at something......

So here is my "finds"... maybe a few things for the shop? probably not.... Love the old biscuit box! Oh the price, around here if it still have the advertising at least $50... if not more... YIPPEE! $31 and it has a hinged lid..... Sandy was really hoping I would put this one back, she so wanted it too... Sorry Sandy :(

Few small goodies... advertising fan... old scissors... old glass Santa glass boot.. use to hold candy..

Couple flower frogs... Amber s/p shakers... look at the tin tops, I don't' know if you can see the half moon's cut out... These guys are HEAVY! Oh ya, look at the old clip on miners light, how fun is that.... I was going to put it back, but decided it was too neat to do that....LOL

Just a couple quick pictures of a few new doll creations that are up on Simply Primitives, if anyone is interested....just email me.... They are $21 shipping

Tomorrow... yes, not pushing it, is a big cleaning day... looking around the homestead one would never know there will be a party of at 65 people here on Saturday... Now they are saying 50% chance of rain, OH S$$$$$, were will I put everyone, the home is not that big....UGH!

I haven't a lot of time to visit all my blog friends... After the party... I also see I am just one away from 175 follower's... I said I would do a giveaway when I reached that number, so I need to get cracking on that too! Next week will be another busy week.... Here's hoping they are wrong for Saturday's rain, or it's all out of the area before 3pm! OLM

LOVE all your goodies and your new dollies! Glad you had a fun day out! Enjoy your evening (PS still lovin my goodies).

Linda ★ Parker's Paradise said...

I'm glad you like your treasures.
I have been looking for a pair of scissors like that for so long. And the amber glass S & P are great. You did have a good shopping trip! And love your goodies from Char, as well.
I think I'd be more concerned about cleaning after a party that big!!!

What fun boxes...Yikes!!! Love them all - and your house is at least going to smell wonderful with those tart burners and tarts!! You also scored great with the antiques - love the biscuit tin (Keeblers no less!) and the flower frogs....Never see those around these parts it seems. Good luck with your "to-do's" for the party.....Just remember - they're not coming to inspect your cleaning (if they are, you invited the wrong guests!) Will keep my fingers crossed and good-thoughts flowing for wonderful weather...Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
