In my last post I mentioned I stopped at an antique store on the way back from the Poppy Reserve. Here are some of the cute things I found...

I was so excited when I found these! I had seen a seller on Etsy selling the whole set and they looked so pretty! They are mini tin tea cups. They are missing their matching saucers and were previously used to hold paint/water so the insides have seen better days. I love the bright colors and the bottom...they just don't make cute things like this anymore! ..Plus they were only $1 each!

I usually avoid buying vintage/ already written on postcards since I don't really know what to do with them but when I came across these I just had to have them! They're tourist postcard books set that open up to about 14 different views (back and front) of the featured attraction. They are all addressed "Daddy to Patty, Becky and Bobby". Initially I was only going to buy one but they were $0.50 each so I got them all! Check out how cheap it was to mail these back then! it's over 11x that price now.

speaking of stamps, I also mentioned  www.Yardsellr.com a couple of posts back. I ended up getting 200 international stamps for free! I have finally used up all my free photon$ but it was so worth it. 

 These are my favorite out of all them! Most were from Australia, look at the Snugglepod Cuddlepie ones, o cute! and of course Costa Rica :)

I hope to incorporate them in my mail art and finish covering one of my mail boxes. What other cool projects are there to do with stamps? 

and one last thing...last Friday, my brother wanted to see if anyone actually participated in that whole "Kony 2012" so we went to Claremont Village to walk around and look at what I found! I need to go there during the day when they are open. I want all of them! ...except the chef one, that one was creepy because it's eyes moved. How tacky! LOL!


  1. You can really cover anything in stamps. Like a box, your cat's head, a file folder.
    I really like that postcard find even if they are written on. :-) Happy Friday!

  2. Awesome finds, JoAnna! ;) Love everything you got!

    Hey, did you go to the Lemon Festival? We did for a little bit on Friday.

    Hope you've had a great weekend and are ready to start a new week with a smile! ;D


    1. Thank you :)
      Yeah, I went on Saturday. It was really packed so we didn't stay long either.

      I hope you had a great weekend too :D
      Wish this weekend was a little bit longer though haha!
