Out Junking While the Sun Shines

It was a gorgeous weekend here in Northern California with temperatures hovering around 70 degrees, but all that's about to change with rain coming in for most of the week.  People are taking advantage of the spring-like weather and yard sales are starting to pop up all over. Even though I had a full weekend planned, I did manage to squeeze in a couple of hours on Friday morning for a few sales that looked promising.

I have a weak spot for typewriters.  I usually only buy the much older models, but this one was such a sweet deal and it works!  (except for the 1/4 1/2 key that sticks)

This 1960s mustard yellow Brother portable typewriter came complete with the snap on carrying case.  I'd rather call it sunshine yellow.

  I bought a bag full of those milk glass spice jars and added some sticky chalkboard vinyl; I thought I could write names on them for place settings. The chair came from a sale last weekend and needs just a little glue to tighten it up.

This pile is going to keep me busy.  I already bent one of the shoe clips into shape for a bracelet, and two of those colorful double sided drops are now earrings.  

Half a pound of jewels...not a bad haul.  Too bad they're not solid gold:-)
