Greg and I went up to the mountains this weekend to do a little fishing. Still haven't caught that big Rainbow Trout that Greg is after, but we did have a very nice and relaxing time just spent on the water. While Greg trolled, I caught up on my reading and napping. It was a perfect 75 degrees, and on the water cool enough to need a sweatshirt. What a nice change from our triple digits in Corona! Sunday I walked a couple doors down to an estate sale. The cabin had sold and they were selling the enitre contents. SURE wish I had gone over the day before. But I sitll managed to find a few goodies. Above are a couple holiday cookbooks, and a holiday cookie stamp.
The pink and blue quilt was my big ticket item at 6 dollars! I already washed it up and I spread it on Drew's bed just to show it. I think I will use it to have a tea party on the grass with Hannah and Claire and all of the tea cups I bought.
I paid 1 dollar for each tea cup and saucer set! Unheard of!!!!
This was such a pretty hand painted fall dish. For a quarter, I had to have it!
I wish I had bought all of these cookie stamps. I just bought the one holiday gingerbread boy.
I bought all of the heavy iron stars she had. LOVE these!!!
Books galore...this one was a childrens book, and the inscription on the inside said Dec. 25, 1880.
This was a hand written ledger from a Georgia farmer. VERY interesting diary.
This is an old book, dated to 1900, and I found the tag on the inside from Harrods in London, for 25 pounds. I paid a quarter. Scattered on the quilt are old postcards of Big Bear at the turn of the century. Several other books, and not pictured is a shelving unit we bought for the cabin. It fit perfectly back on the service porch to store extra items like paper towels and such.
Back to the back of the quilt there is a quilt rack. Another high ticket item-----5 dollars.
And lastly, I bought these two animated reindeer for Christmas. In the box were two holiday door mats, and also a Christmas pine arrangement, and two holiday stuffed fishing guys. A good weekend in Big Bear!
