Back from Vacation & More TS Finds for Fall!

jeannespinesSeptember 19, 2010

A wonderful get-away for 11 days to "Up North" lake in MN! I shared some of my finds on "Fall Apple Vignette" in earlier post.

Here's a leaf plate & cup that I found at an artist's mall in Walker, MN for $5...fell in love with it ...I will probably use it as centerpc somehow:

It's a salmon color ...I found on e-bay that it was probably made in the 40's ...here's a separate view & the markings on the back:

Another few things I felt I "needed" (LOL!) ...the iron pumpkin candleholder ($1.39) & glass l/2 gal water bottle (Minneapolis origin) ($.99) got a TS:

And my fav "old pics" card artist...Vintage by Linda...I've bought a couple each yr now for 3 yrs or so ...at the artist's mall...just love her work of combining old photos, letters, finds, scrappin paper & such:

Also found baby fork & spoon by Oneida for Dollbaby...plus a couple hats & a jumper. Well, didn't do much t'scaping but here's a pic by the lake with DH doing the cookin' for me over the campfire! Unseasonably cool as you can see in our attire of sweathshirts, pants & jeans. LOL!

Don't ya just love those recliner chairs (Fallish design!) that DH bought us right before vacation time. Thanks for lookin'! Jeanne S.

Neat finds, especially the cup and saucer set. I can't wait to see how you use it in a setting.

Gosh, sweats and campfire...and a LAKE! Wish I was there, its 109 here. I step outside and feel like I just stuck my head in the oven. Ugh.

hugs, Karen

Wow, cool finds!! I like the cup and plate and the pumpkin candleholder the best. You really got some great buys!

The recliners look perfect for the setting.

TFS,

So glad you had a nice time on your vacation, and it's always great when we can get the DH to cook for us! LOL

Neat finds, bet you were excited when you found each one! Doll baby looked so cute in her new hats, will look forward to seeing the other one too.

I really like the old picture and the verse on the bottom as well.

Sounds like ya'll had a blast, Fall camping is so fun. It's also fun to squeeze in a little shopping. The dishes are lovely. The bottle reminds me to keep looking for a milk bottle with the cream topper. I got the little spoon like yours on ebay.

Jeanne, hope you get some more of the sets. I will have to go see what other colors are on ebay. If I ever come across some, I will ship them your way.
