Goodwill hot streak

Don't you love when you get on a thrift store or Goodwill hot streak? It seems lately I have been getting lucky. At least for things I like! I am sensing a collection I am starting here and didn't even realize it! I love Madonna statues in white and these 2 I found at different places. One is a planter that I put a little ivy in and the other a flower vase. I just think they are so sweet and lovely.
I have no idea why these pics are turned and no idea how to turn them once they are loaded. But I got these books for a quarter a piece and the vintage pictures are so cute.

This is a newer publication of old advertising and magazine pictures about pets. It is hard back and so sweet. 25 cents!

Aren't these triplets the sweetest? They are taking care of their sick little brother I think. This book was actually published in 1950. It's in great shape. I love vintage children's books.

Here's the cover. Flicka, Ricka and Dicka. Wow on those names lol. I am sorry about the pictures. I am still learning to navigate this blog and fix things that I am obviously not getting right! It's been a good week and I am slowly finishing up the bedroom makeover and have lots more thrifty finds this week too that I will be showing! I can't figure out how to upload more pictures per post? It's probably something really easy but if any of you veteran bloggers could let me know I would be grateful! Have a great day!

You scored well. I love vintage children's books. Great minds think alike. I just posted a few more of my favorite Easter vintage finds...including a book illustrated by Fern Bisel Peats on my blog.

Have fun painting!!

Amy...I love those old books and their graphics. How did I miss you for so long. The doll house is to die for. I saved it to my computer too. Thanks for stopping. I can't wait to see what's up next...Renee
