Last weekends finds

I figured I better post some of my finds from lastweek before I go out and scour around at yard sales tommorow. This means if I am smart I will go to bed early tonight. (*Never happens*) I am usually half asleep when I start my Saturday morning treasure hunting.

I found this darling doll for $1.00 I don't know much about vintage dolls but I do know shes cute and has amazing eyelashes.

I love this dish just looking at it makes me smile because its so weird. Plus pineapples are neat.. Don't ya think?
My best find of the weekend was the (Time Life - Art of Sewing)Book Set
I walked into a thrift store and this book's design caught my eye.

I walked over only to realize there was MANY books all with a different textured pattern cover. I had no clue what they were about and then I realized they were all about sewing, design, patterns, how to's and so much more! I didn't see a price and was worried that when I asked it would be quite high for the set. But they told me 1.00$ PER BOOK!!! ahhhh I was extatic! "Okay I will take them" .. And then they were mine. I hope to learn alot from these I don't know much about sewing but have been wanting to learn. I can do some basic stuff but that is it. I am striving to at some point be able to make dresses. *Wish me luck!* *lol*

Well I am off to enoy some pizza (Even though I shouldn't) and watch a movie.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Sweet yellow Sunbeam

Well I surely never thought I would find a vintage sunbeam at a thrift store I always though when the time came I would have to shell out the $80.00 or more and buy one from E-bay or a expensive shop. Thank goodness I was wrong! I got my yellow mixer on Saturday for a grand total of $20.00 no tax even.

Of course I needed to test it our right away! What else would there be to do? So I had to think of what I wanted to make. Cookies? Squares? Cake? Okay so I settled on a Angel food cake and tested the mixer out. It works great or so I think I don't really know all that much about them. It didn't smoke or explode so I am assuming everything is in good working order. I made yellow icing for my cake and of course decorated it on a owl cutting board I got from a free box at a garage sale.

Now hopefully I don't find another one.. or I will be in a pickle because I surely will not leave it there. *hehe*

My little Corner

Hello Lime Vintage readers! Well I finally got some flower planting done in the past week it seemed to take ages, luckily I had a few thrifting getaways to break up all the time with my hands in the dirt. I found this cute mini rose plant and decided to put it in the fairy pot I had found at our dump store (Which no longer exists *sigh* I always found such great stuff up there.)

On one of my planting thrift breaks I found this vintage solair chair, now I did not even have to think about this purchase I saw it and wanted it and that was it. I already had a cart and this chair was not going to fit inside obviously, so I just stacked it on top and pushed around the crazy contraption all over the store until I was done. There was no chance I was leaving it up at cash and no chance I would leave it in the place I found it until I was done shopping. Every time I do that someone just snaps up whatever I was eyeing seconds after I step passed it and then I get mad at myself. lol
So this is my little corner for now I am sure it will get lots of use.
