I hate it when I fixate on something..cannot get it out of my head and DO NOT need it at all.
Yes, I know I have said this before..but..this was really...silly.
I don't have a baby..and I already have a little doll high chair..cradles and just that sort of thing..but..I am beginning to believe daughters when they say "Mom, that's crazy! You don't need that!"
They are right.
Katie dear, Grandma is sending you a package!
I found this little highchair for a baby at a garage sale..for $35.00.
I balk at paying more than a quarter for anything..so this was difficult.
I passed on it at first...then went back..and bought it.
Have you ever seen a high chair like this one? I never have. I tried to find one on line and had no luck. I would love to know the history of it.
She was asking $40.00 but took $35.00 and I didn't try to go any lower. It was worth it!
Very heavy and sturdy.
I came across this American Girl doll and three sets of clothing, little hats, a whistle, shoes, stockings, and books of her adventures. It's a bad photo as it really does not do her justice..as her little velvet hat with it's streamers down the back, do not show up..nor do the sweet little outfits. Even tiny wooden clothes hangers.
Anyway..I know she is a costly doll and I will tell you I didn't pay a lot for her.
I wanted her as a gift..and she is nothing I could normally afford.
I passed her up on Saturday, but went searching for the house again today..and found her. What a deal.
She was $40.00 and for this doll..that was not much at all.
A doggie bowl. Great quality. 50 cents. (thank heavens!)
And some linens. A beautiful tablecloth with napkins, very 40's, $1.00, a pretty new cherry dishtowel of heavy cotton that I can use for lining dishes when serving rolls..or many uses, 25 cents. NOT to dry dishes...AND a stack of lovely soft yellow napkins..like new for just $1.00. My favorite things to find.
This little book will be a nice Valentine's Day decoration. 25 cents.
I also bought a beautiful piece of picket fencing...wonderful heavy wood..which I will show you on Friday. The price will surprise you.
This...was an expensive Saturday...and I admit it. But...what the heck. Children are grown, I donate, and I am having such a good time.
That's what lifes all about..or supposed to be.
Oh...shoot! I meant to tell you..(forgot to get photo's of it!) but I found a fantastic little OLD typewriter in MINT condition for my daughter #3 Maryalice..and she was beside herself with joy.
And....I found an adorable little basket with hand carved egg shaped balls inside with something that rattled in each one. They were all hand decorated..and we have NO idea what they are. Daughter # 2, Erin got that for her little home.
What a fun day Saturday is! A treasure hunt. You really must see how cute the fence looks..and more.
Ok. I'm done. Falling on my face trying not to sleep. So..
have a wonderful week and I will see you in a day or so.
Hugs and love,
You GOTTA see my fence...and what came with it! :),
