One Word

This little guy made my heart turn summersaults last Saturday when he said, "Mimi" for the first time! He's quite the little charmer! Sometimes it only takes one word to make your heart sing.

Vintage Finds- Weekend Bargains

I hit a really good yard sale a couple of weeks ago, and scored some great buys. I knew when I looked at these plates that they were something nice, but I almost passed them by anyway. However, I just couldn't and besides they were $2 for all 10! I came home and looked them up online. I could only find one site that had a cup and saucer of the same pattern. It was listed at $80, so I'm thinking I got the deal of the day.

Another find at the same sale was this pretty little biscuit barrel for $1. I bought four pieces of fabric for 10 cents a piece, and two wall pockets at $8 for the two along with a few other small things. There were several other really good buys, so I really did practice self-control and not buy things just because they were bargains. I'm trying to decide if I should start an Etsy shop. I love the hunt of vintage bargains, but I don't want to end up on the Hoarders tv show. Anyone know how much record keeping for taxes and such is involved in an Etsy shop. I wonder if it would be worth the time it would take.
