Thrift Share: Estate Sale Finds

I swear, at some point I will share the pictures of the muu muus I got while thrifting in Hawaii.  Yes, I went to Hawaii and found my way into a Goodwill.  Pathetic?  I think not. 

This weekend I managed to get to two estate sales.  The first one was in a rather quaint old house of an older Polish couple, and was filled with ashtrays, sex novels, and religious items.  My style, I tell ya. 

Actually, there were quite a few things there that I liked, and there was no line so I was able to get in and out quickly.  I didn't find much.  There were a lot of vintage linens but they were stained and my boyfriend thought I wouldn't be able to get the cigarette smell out.  Here's what I did find:

I think the glasses are really cute. 

We left and headed to another estate sale.  This one happened to belong to an elephant lover.  I picked up a few small ones that I think will look good in the terrariums I plan on making this summer (we'll see if that happens...).  These people liked elephants, birds (they had three cages of them), and liquor.   We went down to the the basement and found bottles and bottles of it.  There were a lot of special bottles shaped like turkeys (Wild Turkey), old casinos, and politicians, all containing liquor as well.

I thought this one was interesting, so I took it home:

Never mind that it is filled with thirty year old sludge at the bottom.  Needs some cleaning but I thought it would make an interesting container or vase.

What did you find this week?  Linking up at ATG!


My wonderful Trip to Hawaii Part 1: Peacocks and Mermaids

Ok, I've been lazy enough... it's time to blog about my Hawaii trip!

Well, first of all, I met lots of fun critters while on my trip.  This little guinea pig greeted me at about 10:00 pm in down town Waikiki.  I was worried it was a little past his bedtime.

We also went on a magical walk to a waterfall called Waimea Falls.  There, I met some peacocks.

We went swimming in the waterfall!

The water here was thirty feet deep and super cold.  But it was so refreshing after our walk.

Later in our trip we went to a restaurant that had a buffet... and live mermaids.  I got to see her swim.

I had a wonderful time... I'll share more in another post.
