Estate Saling Addiction

I took a hiatus from estate saleing because it was burning a hole in our already holey pockets. I get such a rush from finding that unique item...shopping and eating are stress relievers for me and I can get really selfish about that whole instant gratification thing. It is hard to deny self and it's my prayer the Lord will help me rise above my own wants.

That said, I regressed a little by hitting up an estate sale THREE TIMES. Three days in a row. Because first day you pay full price, then the second day it's 25% off, then 50% the third day.

I found so many treasures, some of which I will pop on Etsy, the others I will keep, and others I will use in my craft booth display.

Some pretties include one of those fabric baskets, vintage Christmas glass ornaments, vintage fabrics, oval embroidery hanging, and rug for kitchen.
Oh yes, the winner of the Spincushions giveaway is Jessica. Congratulations; I'll email you. More for You Monday is on a wee break while I prep for BlogSugar/craft fairs/etc.

I'll end with some randoms:
Globe collection is underway. They are an expensive thing to collect. Maybe I'm just not buying at the right places?
As showcased in above photo, our house is always messy.
I had Lasik eye surgery a few years ago.
I like to wear pants above my belly button.
I'm stumped on what to wear to BlogSugar (I'll be there Fri-Mon so that's alot of outfits!).
I'm wondering if I can craft in the airplane on way to L.A. or if they'll say a needle is a weapon.
