"Q" is for....

The next letter of the Alphabe-Tour has put me in a serious quandary. “Q” is next and is one of the letters that I've been dreading. It's impending appearance has actually made me question my sanity for starting The Tour in the first place. You see, I don’t have any Quimper pottery, Quaint furniture, Queen Mary glassware or Quaker State Motor Oil signs. I even scoured the vast quantity of booths at the World’s Longest Yard Sale for any qualified items, but to no avail. But I’m not a quitter…..I’ve found a few Qs among the items in my booths. Some are obvious…..I hope the others will put a quick smile on your face.

“Q” is for……

Quilt (of course)

another Quilt

Quart-size fruit jar

Quilted Crystal jelly jar by Ball

Quart-size milk bottle

Quest of the Missing Map – Nancy Drew book

And I hope you’ll forgive me for this one…


Duck planter

“R” is next....maybe I can redeem myself with that one!

    The Joyful Thrifter

  6. In your quest to find q-s, you managed to find quite a quantity of quality treasures! Whew, try saying that quickly three times in a row! Sounds like the r-s will be much more relaxing:)

  7. NICE!!!!

    Ohhh Nancy Drew! I had all my Mom's books!! Loved them!

  8. I truly enjoyed visiting your blog and seeing all your "Q's". I have to always choose quilts, as I dearly love them. That is a very pretty pattern.

  9. Quacker...UM, I don't know LOL! I never thought of quilt!


  10. All wonderful Q words!! Love the scrap quilts!!

  11. Q is for sometimes you are quirky! ;) Love the quilts!

  12. So cute, made me smile. Blessings.

  13. Question: How in this world do you come up with such wonderful ideas? Great post!!!


  14. Bravo, Sherry! For someone who was worried about the letter "Q", you did a fantastic job representing it. Love the "quacker"! ;)

    Thanks for joining the party.

    Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage

  15. LOL Sherry! You did a GREAT job with Q. I love the ones you came up with that you didn't have as much as the ones you have. You are so creative and I would love to visit your booth in person.
    You put a smile on my face! :)


  16. You are so witty, and you find such great goodies!

  17. I'd certainly be in a quandry about this one, ha ha. I see that you're in Laurel--I'll have to come visit your booth sometime since I'm just down in Picayune (I have a booth at Barze Place Antique Mall). Neighbors, almost!!!

  18. I love quilts and the second one looks so soft and pretty! I could take the Nancy Drew book and the quilt and be happy for an afternoon! Enjoy your weekend, my friend! ♥

  19. I agree..Q can be for quirky when searching vintage finds. Love your "quacker"

  20. p.s. - stop by for a giveaway if you find the time

  21. Quite a Quirky but quiant post you have quilled. Although "quacker" was a bit questionable, I think it still qualifies! Thanks for joining TTF and have a quiet queenly weekend that doesn't go by too quickly! PHEW!! LOL

  22. Very pretty stuff! Old quilts are my favorite!


  23. I love quilts! I have spent the weekend looking online for that perfect quilt for my guest room. Not having any luck!~Ames

  24. Great selection of Q goodies. I love those quilts and that quacker fits right in.


Your comments make me smile....!!!
