this weekend's big score

I hit a totally fabulous estate sale today and if I had a bottomless pot of money, I would have come home with so much more. Oh, so much more...

Here is what I did score though:
  • 2 really fun vintage patterns, 50cents each. I will defintely use the little girl dress pattern soon and I am totally digging that swimsuit.


  • 2 crazy vintage cookbooks, $1 each. Mrs. Hawaii's Cookbook I bought for my friend, Jon, who is from Hawaii. It is full of all kinds of kitchy 50s recipes from paradise. The second is a cookbook published by the United Nations in 1960 that features recipes from all of the member nations.


  • And the cream of the crop...the Little People A-Frame House, vintage, including all furniture and family members, $10. The people are even the original wooden ones, not the plastic. Everything is in pretty good shape, the foam mattresses on the bunkbeds have disintegrated and one picnic bench has a crack. I am in love though, totally smitten.



And Avery, well, she loves the little bell...
