Estate sale treasures and a bowl full of cherries...

Thank you for all the sweet comments about my mother's beautiful birthday cake and Josie's hearing loss on Monday's post.  I wasn't going to say anything, but I decided to share it with all of you.  I started blogging over six years ago to document our journey with adopting a child with special needs and it's been an amazing experience.  We knew about her special heart and extra thumb and now we're learning that she has a special ear too.  
You're just one special amazing little girl, Josie!!

Now, onto my estate sale adventures....

Despite a full weekend of birthday parties, we managed to hit two wonderful estate sales.
This metal crayon box has a few colored scribbles, but I couldn't pass up the fantastic graphics.
 I also rescued these fun plastic cups.
 They've already been scrubbed out and tested with root beer floats Monday night.  YUM!
These vinyl floral covered beach roll/pillows had never been used.
 Don't you love the graphics on the wrapper?
I also found a box filled with Easter goodies.
I wonder what pies and cookies were rolled out with this rolling pin?  The bowl and linen also came from this estate sale.  Love the green handles and the red stripe on the bowl.
The crocheted cherries were purchased from Heather (Vintage Grey).
 They are now hanging from my kitchen window valance.
Don't they add the perfect touch?  Love them, Heather!
A happy weekend in estate sale land!   On Friday, I'm going to be posting a Kim K. Patriotic give-away.  Be sure to check back!

Good thing you made it to the 2 sales, you found great things. Love the bowl, of course the linens, and the cute metal box. I'm still trying to find room to put all my weekend finds away, lol.

Just catching up and am glad to see that Josie's doing well. Looks like you've been scoring big time with all those super finds! Hopefully, we'll be able to do more rummaging once school's over. Exactly one week left. Can't come soon enough!

Aw, what an adorable little girl. You must be very proud. I'm just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

Oh my goodness, Kim! You chose just what I would have if I'd been so lucky to have been there! They are just the things I've collected, but the cups are what took my eye. I bought the very same cups for my three children in the 60's at a place called "John's Bargain Store" on Nostrand Ave. in Brooklyn, NY! I never dreamed that any would still be in existence!! What a memory jog for this old lady. All my best to you and yours, Kim.
