Sister's Treasues, Saturday's Treasures

Today's post is once again brought to you
by my new go-to camera of choice,
my iPhone 4S.
I'm kinda sorta in love with it,
and also not having to lug around my
heavyweight, big-girl camera everywhere.

I wanted to share some recent pics I snapped
at Betsy and Elaine's space at

Betsy and Elaine are a pair of extremely talented
sisters who do business as
and it's been my privilege to get to know these gals
the past year or so.
Getting to shop their always primo space 
has been an extra special added bonus!

 I hesitated and missed out on this fabulous decoupaged
suitcase made by Betsy.
She assures me more are on the way!

Great stuff, right?
And I was especially fortunate to score these 
most excellent gym lockers below from the
sweet Sister's...

 Be sure to visit Sister's Treasures
 at the next Fbg Trade Days, August 17th-19th.
Be sure to give the gals a hug from me!

On to yesterday's haul!

I seriously considered hitting snooze and sleeping in
yesterday morning, but I knew that my junker's cred
would seriously be in question if I missed yet another
Saturday morning of garage sale-ing.

Thank goodness I hit the garage sale trail!
Behold the loot and swag...

 Dress forms, tiny enamelware,
vintage silver ice bucket, old Mason and Ball jars....

The new gal in our bedroom.

 shiny, shiny, shiny!

Cool old signage, floral tole tray,
utterly fabulous enamelware measuring pitcher.

 Not one, but TWO vintage German dictionaries!
A must have in Fredericksburg, Texas.

And this nifty find....
a combination diary, address book,
and...well, commentary on 1930s life
in one small corner of the world!

Poor Clarence Hocker, apparently dead.
A good reason to always write your contacts
in pencil rather than pen.

And this darling, chippy typewriter table.
Looks right at home in the entry hallway
at the farmhouse.

Have a super duper week.
That's what I plan on doing!

Thank you Anne for the sweet words and photos about Sisters Treasures. Betsy and I are pleased to have you in our circle of friends. I once read that the advantage of a circle is that you can easily widen the circumference as you add friends. You scored some great finds this weekend. Elaine

I love the address book...just think...if the original entry had been written in pencil, we never would have know about poor Clarence Hocker.
