Long weekend haul

I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend!

Mine got off to a great start with an amazing estate sale on Canada Day.  There were tons of beautiful things, including a lovely collection of depression glass, cool vintage radios, vintage sewing box and, my favourite, Pyrex!  :)  Here are the pieces that I brought home:

There is also a large spring daisy casserole but it was in the fridge holding leftovers when I was taking pictures.  The snowflake divided with lid was $5 and the rest were only $2.50 each!!  I also left behind two mint 404 yellow mixing bowls and a butterprint 444 and 442 because I already have doubles of all of those (which is kinda crazy).

I also got tons of beautful vintage sheets which were only $1 each with pillowcases for only a quarter each. 

I've been seeing so many lovely quilts online made of vintage sheets lately that I've been itching to make my own.  Something super easy for a beginner like me and it'll be in shades of blue and green which I think will be very pretty.

I also couldn't leave behind this table cloth for $2.  It's in beautiful condition (can't even tell that it's been used).

I had my arms full when I left this sale!  Bags full of pyrex and sheets are super heavy. This was definitely one of the best estate sales I've been to!!

We spent the rest of the weekend with my husband's family.  Was able to stop by a small antique mall and picked up this pretty pink fridgie for $4.
Off to wash my sheets and hopefully start cutting pieces for new first quilt while the baby is napping  :)
