Fairground finds

These are some of my finds from the ginormous Springfield Garage Sale at the fairgrounds last weekend.  My mom and I canvassed the entire sale and walked away with some treasures.  I've been having trouble with Blogger tilting my pictures sideways...can't figure it out and haven't been posting because of it.  Hmmm... The drawer is from the booth of a dealer out of Lebanon that I always like to shop.  The little animals aren't marked and weren't as expensive as some of the Steiffs in the same booth, but I like their tattered look and sweet expressions.  I also got a couple of pieces of silverware, a bucket, some blue Mason jars for my friend Shannon's summer wedding, a pair of chick S & P shakers I paid too much for and a small divided ironstone-ish dish.  Oh, and two pairs of knock-off sunglasses, which I must say fit me just right.  The chunky finials are from Relics where we stopped later in the day.  We had a really great time and I'm so glad my parents got to come up and spend the weekend with us.  This weekend we are looking forward to attending Drury Homecoming with some of our oldest and dearest friends.  It was 64 degrees today, I think...it sure doesn't feel like February and everyone is talking about what a weird winter we are having.  This weekend will be a bit cooler but it doesn't seem like we're going to get any snow days this year.  We could be out of school by 23 May if we don't, but there's just something about the unexpected, stay-at-home-and-be-cozy break a snow day provides.  I wouldn't mind a couple.  Preferably in a row.  Preceding or following a weekend.
