Let there be light!

My favorite antique vendor recently had a barn sale with several other vendors and I pretty much emptied her booth. I have to share my two favorite acquisitions.

These blow molds stand less than a foot tall.
I {heart} them!!

May you have a thrifty/crafty weekend!
PS. One of my 2008 blog posts
focusing on my
Asian-themed Christmas tree
is being
featured on Pagoda Road here.
They have
10 trees with all sorts of wonderful decorating ideas.
Instructions for making my little girl ornaments can be found here.



XOXO

I should post today what I bought yesterday at an estate sale....at half price (last day of the sale). Always fun to find bargains!
Have a great weekend!

Oh how cute!

I didn't get a chance to tell you how much I appreciate your Father's contribution...he is to be much admired for his service, those were very difficult times.

You are so lucky to find those!
I have never found them (although I don't think I've looked much for them).
I think I need one or more!

I have always loved your Asian tree. This year I think that my Asian tree will be much bigger with all the new ornaments I have collected! Congrats on being featured!!!

By the way, thank you for sharing the Pagoda Road site. I am a new fan!

Good luck on the hunt for more treasures...I have been going through all of mine all day while I put back our dining room. So many memories have been recalled today!

Many thrifty hugs,
Cindy

I love blow molds!!! I hope to get a few more this year. My husband is hoping I don't find any more - he's not a blow mold lover.
