Yard Sale Goodes

Hi Peeps!

First I want to thank you all who stopped by yesterday and commented on my post. You re a GREAT bunch of girls and I thank you for keeping me in your thoughts!

I have my ultrasound scheduled for tomorrow morning so hopefully Ill know more by Monday at the latest!

My MIL called me yesterday afternoon to tell me about a primitive yard sale. She picked me up a few mins later and off we went. This girl had MEGA prim dolls, all for $3-$5. AWESOME AWESOME dolls for every season. I only picked up one as I fell in love with her. The weirdest thing happened when I got home, not only was there a HUGE black hairy spider crawling in her hair but I noticed a tag on her arm that read, Rose Curtis - Bittersweet Prims. HOW WEIRD IS THAT????



I tried to email her but it came back to me.

If anyone knows who the designer of this pattern is please please PLEASE let me know as I would love to make a few of my own.

I also picked up 2 cutters for $2 ea! YAY!!! Told ya I'de get one soon enough:)
A quilted pillow for $1, 2 stitchery stockings - $2 ea and big chenille candy canes for $2 a bundle. Oh and an old rectangle mirror with a wooden frame that I'm planning on painting.





BB soon with more news!

OMG! I would never find a yardsale like that here! You got some great prims! And for cheap too! That is so wierd about the tag on the doll! Maybe you should try to google her and see what comes up?
I hope all goes well with your ultrasound. Nothing like being in suspense. I am praying for you that it is nothing major. I am sure it will be nice for you to know so you can stop worrying and get some relief!

Sure wish we had sales like that around here, did they advertise it as a prim sale? that's an idea.

I think she sold on ebay, quite a few years back. If it is the same girl, she did her own doll designs. I could be mistaken about whom it is. I think she was from Ohio or Indiana.....

OMGosh that doll would have been flung across the room. I'm crawly just reading it. Of all my fears that is one...can't deal with spiders.
But your doll is wonderful!
Hope you can find who you are looking for.

Jenn..the more I think of it, The name Rose Curtis sounds so familiar.
There was a lady you sold her things in a shop in Heath, Ohio. It is called Finder Keepers. Maybe they can help you find her. The number is 1-800-843-9301. They advertise in the Ohio Country Register also. I don't remember where she lived but I am sure nearby. The shop is about a half hour east of Columbus.
