Vintage Blocks and Way Rite Scale Now Mine

In the children's room at the estate sale in Athens, Georgia I could not resist the blocks.

They have a graphic time worn patina.

Here they are in a glass hurricane.

And in a mini cloche. 
The tiny muffin pan was one of three in the box with the blocks. 
The kids probably played with the little pans along with the miniature cast iron stove I saw at the sale.

The second item came from the kitchen and it is this Way Rite Scale. 
 I am happy to have finally found one.

The third item, also from the kitchen, is this wine bottle. 
It is not terribly old, could be new, but I liked it.

The price for all three items was $11.50 which considering some of the prices I have quoted concerning this sale is beyond wonderful.

I behaved myself.

  1. I love old blocks but all the ones I have run across that I wanted were too pricey... and alas, so I have none... LOL

  2. What a wonderful sale, with so many treasures. So glad you were able to bring home a few of your own. I love the blocks, they remind me of my own childhood, and welcome to the sisterhood of vintage scale owners! ;-)

  3. There is something
    so endearing about
    well-loved children's
    You have the eyes
    to see that beauty, T!

  4. Olive,
    Love your finds! The blocks are adorable and that little muffin pan, to cute! Congrats on finding a scale! They are one of my favorite things, just found a very cool green and grey one to add to my collection. Since I'm running out of room on top of my cabinets, I took my least fav to my booth to resell. It was hard!! (trying to be good)!

  5. Olive, I found myself looking over at this house on Prince Ave yesterday as I rode by imagining that I could see you standing in line waiting to go inside....surely wish I had known about it and maybe then I could imagine we had a little talk about the great finds here...but they surely seemed way over priced... :-) maybe now I will run across the leftovers at the thrift stores here...anyway, love your posts about this sale....

  6. Awww, would love those blocks, a find that is truly sweet.

  7. Oh wow! You got a fantastic deal on that stuff. The scale, alone, would've cost much more than that! I love your new finds. I'm sure you will enjoy those for a long time.

  8. Cute blocks and great price for all that. I LOVE your header!!

  9. Great find! I really like the blocks too, and their one finish! Demonstrates such lovely character!

  10. Wonderful vintage blocks! What great finds!!

  11. Well I love the blocks (So perfect for vignetting!) the and scale! And I really enjoyed attending the sale with you. No way would I have the willpower to take photos when possible treasure lurks around every corner *winks* so thank you for doing that! You WERE good!
    I do think that was quite a bit for the fish platter and also for the clock (If those were the marked down prices) I can only imagine what would've been in the sale at the beginning if this was week two. I wish I cou;ve been there! Vanna

  12. Hi Olive, More great finds! The blocks are wonderful and I love the vintage scale. Thanks for linking to my party this week.
    xo, Sherry

  13. Hi Olive, You sure scored on the Blocks.... they are so pretty, I see why you couldn't pass them up. Do you live in Athens? I was there in August with My Niece, we hit the Habitat Store~ and filled her van up...
