I am late posting this week because it was my birthday and we were out of town. I want to share some of my estate sale finds and then I will explain the belated posting.
Because we were heading out of town, I found several estate sales outside of our normal shopping locations. My favorite finds of the day were several Paint-by-Numbers. They were still in their boxes with all of the little jars of paint. Two are unfinished but the one shown here is not only completed but the "artist" signed and dated the piece. It was completed in 1970.
The paintings were found in an out-building that must have been someone's craft room. I also found these large wooden spools and some floral supplies. I used to love the straw flowers that were so popular in the 70s.
Inside of the house I found an unused Strawberry Shortcake pillowcase and some vintage pink flowers.
Now to explain why I am late posting. I always wish my parents had not only encouraged my dreams when I was younger but allowed me to pursue my dreams. My son has a dream to drive race cars. So I am encouraging him to dream big because some dreams do come true. This weekend, my birthday weekend, we were out at a race track in the California desert. My son built his own car and is now learning how to race correctly on a real race track. I want him to live the life he imagines and have fun in the process. He is driving the red car in the middle of the pack.
