Mish Mash Monday

Happy Monday and welcome to MMM!  I hope you had a terrific weekend!

I was soooo excited and happy to meet two of my good friends on Friday for lunch.  It's been two years since seeing one and three years since seeing the other.  One of them has a 6 week old baby girl I got to meet but she had the nerve to sleep through the whole lunch!!!  I guess that means we'll have to get together again!

Saturday was perfect for the first day of spring.  My daughter, Shylee and I took a day trip to Lancaster County, PA and hit the antique mall and Amish shops.  I got some really great deals on these vintage goodies!

A lace dress for $5 that I got for the lace!

A skirt with jewel toned buttons for $3.  I'll be turning it into something else...stay tuned!!

Fabric scraps that I need like I need another hole in my head, but they're pink and were only $1 !! 

And a milk glass compote that has nothing to do with sewing, fabric, lace or fills an empty spot on my buffet!

I know it's not much today, but that's all I've got!  Thanks again to Audrey at Audrey's Country Crafts for sponsoring MMM! 

Have you found any great bargains lately?


  1. I am in love with those buttons and who could say no to pretty fabric for a $1 !

  2. OMG I am soooo jealous !!! That lace dress ...can you imagine wearing it ? I'd be covered in stains ! LOL It's too pretty. You did good !

  3. Ooo.... lovely lace, buttons, fabric & compote! I love them ALL! Lace is SO romantic! I'm on the lookout for some (for my home) on my next Goodwill visit. Happy you got to meet up with good friends! Hope it was a sweet time :)

  4. Wow! What beautiful bargains! I can't wait to see what you do with your finds.

    Happy Monday to you!

  5. Hi Annette, So sorry it's been a while since I've visited. And thank you so much for all your loving comments.
    Don't you just love Lancaster? Great shopping there. I can never pass up lace and pink either. You'll make something beautiful with them I'm sure. Show pictures when you do.

  6. I have a (some say) bizarre love of the Amish. I used to pretend my Barbies were Amish. OK, maybe that is a bit odd! But I am so jealous right now of your day trip!!!

  7. Amazing deals and beautiful items!! The lace dress looks just gorgeous!

  8. Talk about bargains!! You did some super shopping. Good purchases.

  9. Oh my! You found some really awesome items!! I really need to go bargain hunting this summer.

  10. What a great haul. I am jealous, I haven't been antiquing for so long. I ran out of room and I can't go just to look :( No willpower where that is concerned (He! He!)

    Hope you are having a great evening, T.

  11. A great weekend and good bargain shopping to boot! What fun. I couldn't have passed up the pink fabric either. Maybe its the year of pink?


  12. Beautiful milk glass. I think that could tempt anyone.

    Your blog is looking beautiful, by the way. Love the new design!
