The Weekend Haul!

Found at my FAVORITE Thrift store Value Village!  A Little ghost blow mold Halloween decorations (currently missing the pumpkin he holds) this GREAT 1950's regatta planter, and a White 201 Frankoma bowl! (has a tiny chip but for $1.41 who cares!)
(Regatta man)

I'm telling  you have I have a 6th sense for Frankoma! I looked over into a shelf of dishes and with out even turning it over said "That's Frankoma"  ... Damn I'm good!  This is my 2nd white piece (I also have a white glazed ashtray) and it looks quite fetching when paired with my brown pieces!
 Got these blow mold candles (they are missing the "flames" on top) for $1.20!!!  You'll see them next around Thanksmass time. 
We've also started gathering up items for our Halloween Party at the Casablanca I saw this cool sheet music form the 1930's and an antique store a got if for around $3.25
It will look fantastic sitting on the piano for Halloween! (When we get into October I'll do a post on decorations) and to finish the weekend off I found the perfect size pumpkin at Card & party Factory for the blow mold.
Saturday night Patricia, I, and our friend Caitlin went roller skating to practice for the big roller skating number Happy Days.
This particular skate rink was soooo crowded poor Caitlin is in tears because she had never been skating before! But after a few hours practice she was getting the hang of it.
To top it all off as we left the skate rink the DJ played "Good Night Sweetheart" and for me and Patricia that was just amazing. Its also why its now on the blog play list :)

Now you need to find a pole for the gondola man (it looks like there's a hole in his hands for that). I love Frankoma too--usually find either the brown or the green around here but I'll be on the lookout for white since it's all still pretty cheap (USUALLY). BTW, just how serious are you and that Patricia person? You know how many Mom's you have out here in Blogland and I think it's about time we got some in-depth info on her, bucko! (PS--even though it killed me, as you can see I did NOT beg for the gondola planter!).
