A Weekend of Racing and Thrifting

This is the first driving event weekend of 2012. My son is totally excited. I was able to fit in one estate sale on the way to the track. It was another farm sale which are my favorites.

My best find was a bag of old millinery flowers. I took these photos in the car on the way to the track so they aren't lit very well. I was thrilled to find two old poppy stems among the flowers. They are the orange flowers at the top of this photo.

I don't know how old these dolls are but they were too sweet to resist. They are tiny bisque jointed dolls. The dresses are handmade and need a little repair. Their hair is silver and their arms are jointed. I believe  they are made in Japan.

This is the second time I've found only the groom figure and no matching bride. He is also bisque and marked "Made in Japan". I wonder where the matching bride went?
So another weekend of fast, noisy cars. My son is living his dream. I just need a quiet nap.
Hope everyone had a great thrifting weekend.
