Estate Sales ..Flea Markets ..and Potatoes

 Rise and shine ! It is Monday !
Last Thursday my daughter and I went to 2 Estate Sales.. I got my first ever vintage green Mason jar ..Its an Atlas jar with no lid but it was cheap :) I also got that little white dish on the scale for $1.00 at the Estate sale. Yesterday we went to both the Wilmot Wisconsin Flea Market ( I didn't buy anything at that one ) and the Kane County Flea Market .. I got this cute vintage scale at the Kane County sale.. It's missing the glass and in rough condition but I got a great deal on it !
 I redid the top of the cabinet and used the cute vintage scale and the green jar..Lots of hydrangeas and a couple of Jack Russell figurines..
 I got this watering can at one of the Estate sales ..isn't it great ?
 The crocheted doily in the basket was made by my Grandmother ..
 Its potato planting time ! I am only planting them in pots this year ..I got so many more from the pots than the garden last year . I have 4 different varieties so far ..I have bought some big pots at rummage sales and I even bought a bin yesterday at the Good Will and had my son drill some holes in the bottom and planted that with the potatoes..Hope we get a good harvest this year :)
I got this little vintage wheelbarrow at one of the Estate sales .. The youngest grandson loves it  !

 We got him this bubble blower for Easter and he played with it nonstop ! He is just the cutest !
Hope you all have a wonderful week  ! Thanks so much for stopping by ! I would love for you to follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest , Etsy..all the links are in the sidebar !

Love your finds, but the best are those pics of your grandson enjoying his goodies!

That scale and the other finds are very nice but that little sweetie totally stole the show at the end :)

Carol said...

Looks like a lot of wonderful goodies from the estate sales, Priscilla--your new display is so pretty! And I loved seeing the wheelbarrow--we have an exact replica that belonged to my husband when he was little that our boys used to play with :)

Barb said...

All the great finds! I love the green jar. But best of all is the cute little Grandson!!

Donna Wilkes said...

The boy and his wheelbarrow - so cute! Love the scale and the ideas for potato planting. I didn't know they could be grown in containers.

I love your spring vignette! Dried hydrangeas are so lovely.

Oh how I love old watering cans. You scored so well and it looks in great condition.
Hugs, Lynnie

More great finds! I've been thinking about veggies in pots, but haven't tried anything yet. My choices would probably be cukes, tomatoes, and maybe a mild pepper...

I love rustic scales Priscilla and have one almost identical. Love the watering can too! Great vignette and fun finds. I had a wheelbarrow like that at my previous home. Wondering if it's still in our cubby under my sewing room. lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
hugs,
Jann

That is a beautiful vignette. I would have thought about putting all those items together. You did a great job!
