Great estate....

Every once-in-awhile I come across a memorable estate sale. For me it had been quite a long time and I was was even beginning to loose interest (!) So I was thrilled to find this sale today that was full of very old photogenic pieces. I didn't even buy much for myself, but found joy in spending some time documenting these items in my own way and letting their personality shine! Vintage Halloween items are always a treat for me to find. There were definitely some fun items.Look at all these amazing old books! Love these illustrations. There were tables and tables filled.
Here is the small stash of fun goodies that I did take home with me, including the chenille quilt.

Drooling here. I don't know how you possibly picked through all those yummies to bring things home. I would have wanted it all!

Oh WOW! How much fun! I can't imagine how much fun it would be to go through it all. I would have such a hard time not touching everything :)

I thought that first photo had me jealous but then you showed those TINS! Oh my.

Occasionally I have a blog post on my vintage/junk jaunts but it always seems others find better goodies!!!
