Estate Sale Finds 9-29-14

It was really slim pickings this weekend and I didn't get much, but I'll share what I did find.

A brand new set of cookie cutters, still in their original packaging, a silver butter dish with a glass insert, an adorable Snoopy ornament, vintage green kitchen utensil, 2 copper cookie cutters and an old package of bottle pourers, never opened...


A new candle and 6 copper tins.....


A 3 bowl set of Vintage Pyrex.....


And my favorite finds - 2 Audubon prints from 1937.   These are in excellent condition and will go well with the Audubon print I found over the summer.



 I think I'll paint and distress the frames a little and they will get hung someplace in the house.



That's all I got!  I didn't have a lot of time for picking this weekend, but something is better than nothing.  A couple things will be used in upcoming crafts, some are destined for my Etsy shop and a couple of things I'm keeping.  I can't wait to smell that candle.

  6. That vintage green utensil looks like a family member to my grandma's old wire creamer thingie. I'm sure that's not the real name, but I remember my mom blending butter and sugar with it. So ugly it's cute!

    1. Years ago I was at a clients house who had dozens of them hanging on a two story wall in her living area. I fell in love with them. Then I did a book review on the Audubon prints and loved them even more. Now I've found 3 in the past 3 months. I hope I find some more.

    1. I am torn with what to do with those molds... sell them or repurpose.

  14. We had Homestead growing up, but the more common blue one. The 403 was the popcorn bowl from the self popper. I've only ever bought one candle from a thrift & it was an M&M candle. I had always wondered who bought the half used ones & one day this woman bought like 13 of them.
