The yellow pig bank I already had and I got the red and pink one. I thought they were the same shape until I got home and realized they were different. My blog friend Laurie from Magpie Ethel also is collecting these guys and we are in a official "PIG RACE" to each find a rainbow of these piggies :)
This weekend my mom came to visit and you know we did some thriftin'. Friday we hit some garage sales. I found a pile of vintage coloring books, a huge bag of magnetic fridge letters, some vintage chalk to add to my collection, a Mele jewelry box, glitter and a bunch of stuff to resell on ebay (that is too boring for a photo).
These books on the right are my fav. They are color by number story books (unused) and they totally remind me of my childhood. Remember color by number? I used to get mad when my friends didn't follow the correct color number guide. "The shirt is number 6 which is green so stop coloring it pink!" I was kinda bossy.
The chalk went with my chalk collection. This is a fairly new collection. My mom made the chalkboard and gave it to me a few years ago so I have been picking up old chalk boxes when I see them. Today I put this shelf up to show off the boxes. I think I need more :)
Saturday we hit the estate sales and a vintage market. I found a few things there too (imagine that).
Wood red plant stand, handmade flower pillow, yellow folding ruler and some black and white pics. My mom bought me the pillow for my birthday which is Tuesday (thanks MOM!). The ruler will be added to my collection. I have never seen a yellow one. I bought the plant stand as a gift to myself :) And the photos I just thought were cool.
We also hit the flea market today but this post is long enough so I will save that for another day. And if you read this far you get a cookie :) Have a good week!
