G-sale finds

I have started a part-time job, 4 days a week and I don't get home until after 8pm some nights! Working for someone else, on their terms has really thrown me for a loop! I am so used to being my own boss that I can hardly take it! Good thing it's only a 2 month stint.
Anyways, work has left little time for blogging, but I am squeezing in a few posts on my day off.
Todays garage sale finds were few but nice:

Cute KITTY-CAT sock-monkey-$2 (Check out the bow in her ear!)

Metal animal musicians wall-hanging - .25
Vintage Family photo tree - .50
Sewing basket (minus top) - free
Child's letters for crafts - .50
Rhinestone belt buckle -.50
Gorgeous terry Spa robe, like new, but a tiny yellowed spot on the shoulder (I'm sure it will launder out) - .25! The faux ranunculus boquet in the pocket cost twice that!
1970's Hostess jumper -.50
I could show you a pic of me in it but it is so crazy that it would befuddle the average human and would render her senseless for the remainder of the day. You will have to be satisfied with this snippet of a photo of the wild lime/fushia/tangerine pattern which covers it. ( I walked outside with it on and my husband looked up, sheilded his eyes and then the mower went dead...I told you it was too much. But it sure makes a girl feel like Cher!! Bob Mackie would be proud!)
I know this is weird, but can a girl be in love with a bath towel? I found this towel and another one like it and was sure it had to be something from Rachel Ashwell's line. It is dreamy velour printed with pink roses!
But, no, it has this vintage Martex label in it!
I won't let anybody else use it! It is pure luxury! (.50 for two.)

Last week when I went sale-ing I found a boatload of carded vintage buttons. I bought them and asked my "jeweler" daughter to fashion this bracelet for me. Didn't she do a nice job? She may be making more for her Etsy account.
I'll be posting cottage pics soon. The plumber is about finished and I am going over this afternoon to check-out his handiwork. Bye!
