My mom & I, who are close pals, took a little 45 minute road trip to Hermiston & Stanfield Oregon yesterday. I was on a mission for forks. We stopped at a few antique & junk shops & found some interesting things....
Here's a scary doll head from the 1970's.
And a sweet little suitcase. My mom had a suitcase very similar to this when she was little. She remembers packing it up & running away from home.
I literally rolled out of bed & hopped in my mom's car for our trip. That's why I look so.......un-sassy. But, I'm still rockin' it with a random pink guitar I found at one of the stops along the way. No, I didn't buy it.
I was so excited to find these toys! I remember them when I was a kid. They're giant Tinker Toys. I can totally remember me & all my cousins gathered at grandma's house on Guemes Island playing with these one Christmas. And of course, being a wee kid, these things seemed ENORMOUSLY HUGE to me!!! Unfortunately the price wasn't so right to purchase them.
The shop I finally found my forks at also housed a sweet bunny named "Bun Bun"...
...& some little birdies.
More shakers for my vintage button bouquets.
The towns we were in are not that big, & our GPS had trouble finding "Points Of Interest". I had to take a pic because I thought that was so funny. Still, we managed to find our way around.
We ended the day with a root beer float. Num.
A big surprise awaited me when I returned from thrifting! I received a package from a contest I recently won over at whosies blog. Look at the handcrafted cupcake goodness that is ALL MINE! There's an apron, a small tote, 4 napkin holders, a dishtowel & a hot pad/pot holder. It's from Whosies and Whatknots.
