Today I found two more things for my doll house.
The woven 'sisal' rug, which I am sure is just an old hot pad, but it just screamed 'doll house rug' and since it was 49 cents...
...well, I bought it.
Then, how do you like them apples? They were also 49 cents. They came in a bag with some larger apples and four wooden acorns.
Of course, I had to remove a bakelit button from the salt-dip, but it does make a stunning bowl for apples.
Well. I think so anyway.

I bought this wig for a dollar at the thrift store awhile back.
The only reason I bought it, was the styrofoam head it was on came with it, and I was always looking for those for my small collection of fur hats.
I remember that when we paid for it, the clerk commented on just how many heads that wig had been on that day.
Not intending to ever wear it, I disinfected it and threw it into a box of 'future dress-up stuff'. That box got packed away last year when we moved, and wasn't unpacked until the major garage clean-up on Saturday.
I figured that anything growing in it would have died by now. It came out for Jonge and Famke to play with, but they were not at all impressed with it. Scared nearly to death would be more accurate.
So, I put it on MY head, just to show them how GREAT it is, and, well, if it doesn't EXACTLY match the color of my hair!
My hair is falling out like crazy, so it's nice to know this will be around when I just can't do the comb-over anymore.
I only plan to keep this post up VERY briefly. VERY BRIEFLY.
But, truly, one can find ANYTHING one needs while thrifting!

Even though we were tired out from having a garage sale today, I still managed to get myself to a thrift store.
Today we held our last garage sale of the year.
This one was our third.
We did very well on the first two, so it is understandable that eventually things would slow down.
Today, we made $40.00.
I rescued some boxes that were not intended for the sale.
Boxes whose contents hadn't been seen since I packed them over a year ago.
So, I had a GREAT time re-finding treasures!
Like this little pitcher.
If I remember correctly, I found it for a dollar at a thrift store.

I'm not sure why they are not snapped up quicker than they are! I love getting all those tiny pictures printed on such good quality paper! Great for decoupage, popping into a small frame, or even to use as classy art in a dollhouse or shadow box.
