It's Never to Early to Start Collecting

I had wanted to check out an estate sale early last Friday while my daughter was at school.  But, my morning got away from me and I ended up having to go after I picked her up from Kindergarten.  Her only request, in return for tagging along, was a Wendy's Frosty.  The good news was that I knew the Frosty would keep her happy and busy while I browsed.  The bad news was that I knew when I heard her final slurp, it would be time to head home and my treasure hunting would be over.  The sale was pretty picked over, but I was happy browsing and she was happy slurping.  As I settled into sorting a box of vintage aprons I heard her little voice "Mommy, will you hold this".  I was handed a half finished Frosty and she turned her attention to a box of old baby clothes.  
She was thrilled with her first find-the perfect Spring top for her baby doll.


  1. Awesome! Now maybe your daughter has caught the bug and she'll get into it too! BTW...I love my apron! I wear it almost everyday...there's a pocket perfect for my iPhone! :)

  2. Oh, how lovely!...Your daughter will definitely have the bug now...this is a perfect find for her baby doll!
    Hope you have a lovely weekend,

  4. There's no turning back for her now! Soon she will be the one buying YOU the slurpy so you will hunt longer! haha! This has actually happened with me and my DIL. She used to just indulge me on our forays, and now she takes MUCH longer than me! I would have been thrilled to find that dolly top!
