recently thrifted

so here's what I bought at the estate sale I posted about yesterday...

a little wooden couple who turned out to match perfectly with a little house I thrifted a couple weeks ago:


{they have a paper label on the bottom that says svensk slojd & are stamped made in sweden}

some pretty patterns & jewelry:


and finally a 1973 tomy cycling cheri:


you put batteries in the little yellow box on the back of the bike & she's supposed to pedal away but it doesn't work - that's okay because I really just wanted that cute little bike anyhow!

Aw, she's wonderful! I love the little bike so much.

Have you, for any reason, ever been to a bar called Linda's in Seattle? I used to live by it and went there all the time. Totally fun little place, but the back patio wall was a huge semi-unfinished paint-by-number, and that picture reminds me of it. Super sweet. I want to do that now, actually!

okay, cycling cheri is amazing -- and photographing her in front of the paint by numbers is too too cute!!! and of course i love the little wooden couple in front of the house -- their names must be hansel and gretel :) what great finds!!!!! i need to consider spending more time at estate sales rather than thrift stores - or at least divide the time equally. what fun!!!

Nice haul! I love the pattern on the tray. Is it a lap table or just a tray? I bought a lap table like that a couple months ago. I use it as a makeshift bed desk.

thanks everyone!

thursday - it's just a tray :)

fawn & flower - I have not been to Linda's but I love the idea of a paint by number mural!!
