New Nest Treasures and Thrifty Finds

A mini-nest on a tablespoon easel.
Green bird and eggs coming soon.

Hit a great church rummage sale Saturday,
and got this porcelain Santa.

Here is what I paid,
and if you zoom in you will see the store price!

A pile of doilies, and a sweet black choker.....

Sheet music and books....

a wonderful old scrapbook with paper articles
and recipes from the 1940's in it.

And here is the BLUE cover of the scrapbook

and some other things I got.

Nothing over $2.00!!
My kind of sale! =0)

Hi Barbara! I found an old silver soup ladle this weekend and thought... "I can put a bird nest in there like Barbara Jean!!!" I haven't done it yet, because I'm not sure where I would put it, but I do LOVE the idea.
I had no idea there were so many Make it Monday memes!!!! I'm going to check some of them out! Have a great week.

Barbara Jean,
You did good girl! Love that black choker, it looks Victorian. And that scrapbook, oh so cool. I love that kind of stuff, I'd spend all day reading it & imagining the person who made it. Thanks for sharing with us. Lisa

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Hello Barbara Jean ~I wanted to stop by to reconnect. I've had a few absences from blogging and have lost touch with some of my friends.
Since winter landed on our provided us the motivation for a few indoor remodeling two homes! Which can be a bit daunting. So, I appreciate the breaks I get for blog visits.
It's wonderful how generous blog friends as yourself can be, with sharing your beautiful treasures. That's why I love returning the gesture, by sharing cooking or DIY ideas too.
I hope you can stop by so we can reacquaint ourselves.

Sweet wishes,
