How are you doing with all of this social media stuff? I think I have a decent handle on it, although sometimes I forget to blog about the things I post to my Facebook page. Facebook is easy for me because it's simple to put up a photo of what's happening; I feel like I need a big "score" and story to feature something on my blog.
I guess Twitter is similar to Facebook but moves at a faster pace. A tweet needs to be more "in the moment" and I do not think fast enough for that. So my Twitter account languishes. I also know I should be doing more with Pinterest for marketing purposes but I just can't get into it.
So let's play a little catch up. Here's what's been going on the last couple of weeks -- don't worry, you didn't miss much!
There was one lone indoor yard sale. I had seen a sign driving by the corner days before, but it wasn't on Craig's List or in the newspaper. On the day of, there wasn't even a sign at the door. I was looking for it across the street when some people who had already been in directed me to the proper location.
It was pretty bad, but I did find this box of vintage millinery. Pam from Plucky Maidens Junk Fest and another Facebook friend spied the velvet pink and olive green leaves in the lower right and asked if they were for sale. They bought them all!
Luna is poking through the rest of what I found there -- a box of metal flower frogs and a container of hanging crystals.
There was also a church thrift open that day -- they hold a sale a couple of times a month. I usually don't find too much there, although the thrifty gods were looking down on me because I found this vintage suitcase. There's definitely a pale aqua under all that dirt charm.
I went to the last indoor flea market of the season and found this watering can -- which I don't think is old, but it still has a good look to it -- and three vintage Westclox Baby Ben alarm clocks from the 1930s to 1950s. The green drawer piece has been in our house for years and is one of my favorite things.
Speaking of favorite things, this is my workstation with one of my favorite blue scales. As I was posting this photo, I realized there are four scales within ten feet of me to the right. And another two to the right of that. And one behind me. And probably one or two in the dining room that I'm forgetting. And a couple upstairs for sure.
We may be slightly obsessed. Remember when Mr. VJIMT bought that giant blue scale at Bouckville? I think there are more scales than typewriters. How can that be?
I even made a Pinterest page for them. See, I'm getting it!
