This Weeks Finds: Games & Ephemera

What gets me through the week is knowing that Saturday morning (and sometime Friday too) is my Sale Day. I generally spend most Saturday mornings at sales; garage sales, church rummage sales, estate sales, household sales, tag sales, flea markets. Call them what you will, but to me they are just sales that I want to be at. Lately, I have had to cut back on my shopping a bit, as it was getting a little out of hand and I'm running out of room in my house. But last week I was out for a little mental health therapy. While I was at an estate sale Saturday morning, I met Michael. He runs a website called Pittsburgh Estate Sales. It's always fun to talk to people with your same interests. Michael's a great guy. We had a nice visit. I have been on his website several times, so it was fun to meet him. If your looking to go to estate sales in the Pittsburgh area, his site is the place to go for all the info.

This week I ended up with some cool, old scrapbooks, a couple of books, a red alarm clock, piano sheet music, a kids table, some old games, and even a few Western Union telegrams from the 1930's. You never know what you'll find. And that's what makes it so much fun! 

F.Y.I. the fabric in the photos is from Heathers Bailey's Nicey Jane collection. It's the Picinic Bouquet - gold laminated cotton. I recently purchased it to make a tablecloth for my kitchen table. I LOVE Heather Bailey's fabric! Her website is my favorite site on the web! If you have never been there you must visit Heather Bailey.


  1. Great Stuff Melissa! Your template blends so perfectly with the image in this entry that it looks like it was custom made for this. Maybe YOU should be designing templates for others!

  2. Melissa, I love your blog and look forward to more!
