Fun Finds...


Hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July holiday!  Like many areas of the country, it was very hot here, and I spent most of the day indoors!  Last weekend, however, much of the family gathered at the lake.  We found a fun estate sale, and thought I'd share some of my goodies with you.  I love the graphic look of these little brass stencils!  Another graphic piece was this sterling spoon- engraved, Beach, No. Dak.  Such a charming old souvenir!
 


The vintage patina on this bell called to me...


as did this vintage sprinkler and hose nozzles...



Some vintage locks were fun finds, too!


For a change of pace...look at these sweet baby booties...


and little shoes...


I am joining a brand new link party- Hot Fun In The Summertime !

I'm also partying with Debra's Vintage Inspiration Friday over at Common Ground...
and Honey's
Potpourri Friday at 2805

And... a big THANK YOU to Debra and Honey for featuring my Glimpses From The Sunporch post this week!

 Until next time...hope you have a great
 (and cooler) weekend!

  4. Ya wouldn't usually think of "beach" and North Dakota in the same breath; that's great! Fun finds all around.

    It's hot here too, 102 yesterday and likely the same today.
    Stay cool!

  10. You find the best things! The bell, however, brings back bad memories of a place I worked where customers rang the bell (more than was necessary) for service. :@
