Baby Boomer Babbling-er-Musings

I'm from the baby boomer generation. I have a mop of white hair, courtesy of my gene pool. And a botox-free face that sports frown lines in the forehead and around the eyes. Love handles instead of a waistline. Can't say I'm exactly crazy about any of these old age indicators but I accept them with grace. And now I've lived long enough now that I ponder on a lot of things, new and old.

Yard Sale Loot!

Sharing photos of some of the loot (i.e. junk, treasures, bargains) the hubby and I found over the course of two days at the World's Longest Yard Sale last weekend (August 1-4, 2013).

Found at an Estate Sale in Mentone

along the yard sale route.

Old medicine bottle Humphries Insomina Cure

Plastic Miracle Maid Salt & Pepper Shakers
Either late 1960s or the 1970s

[Found in sewing basket above]


1995 Hallmark Christmas Ornament

Vintage Metal Doll Stroller
[Added my daughter's
1970s Gerber Baby Doll]

Annie Oakley's Dresser Top
Little Girl's Hand Mirror | Toy Gun | Red Beaded Necklace

A whimsical cake plate that I picked up for a fellow photographer.


YARD TREASURES

Roosters!
These two Crowers are balanced on the pole.
They swing back and forth
or go round and round!

A sweet cart that will be a plant stand
on the front porch.

A rusty tricycle was probably
a wine bottle holder in a previous life.


Corn Cob Screw Driver
Yep, that's what I said.
Also a rusted out ash bucket
to become a flower pot.



This is "Snigger" (not Trigger), newest addition to the Yard Zoo.
I liked him because he has ATTITUDE!


A cute planter!
Already drilled holes in the bottom
and put in plants.



1923 Swans Down Flour Bundt 
Cake Pan with Side Vents
It was to be a planter until I found out
it was so old.  Now undecided!


1930s-40s Nesco DeLuxe Oil Heater
The wooden low plant table

was another bargain.
