weekend finds: starburst clock, garden owl, sailboat model

So this weekend I got the worse case of sunburn, I took the kids for a little picnic by the beach on Saturday and the weather was gorgeous. I forgot to put any sunscreen and when we got home I started itching, like I'm-going-out-of-my-mind itching, it was horrible.  The shower I took made the itch even worse and all the calamine lotion, aloe, vinegar and all kinds of potion I applied on my face and neck was not working.  The next day I was just going to stay home but hubby persuaded me to go to a swap meet then to an antique shop next to it.  I'm so glad the itching subsided by then and I was able to enjoy a little shopping and felt lucky to have found these cute finds; an owl figure made of rusty metal, a sailboat model and I think I may have started twitching and itching in excitement when I spotted this awesome starburst wall clock for a mere $24.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
