The yard sales yesterday were everything I had hoped they would be. We ended up finding a few more that weren't advertised in the paper. All total, we went to either 7 or 8 sales total. Here are some of the lovely items I couldn't pass up.
This casserole dish will be a lovely addition to my bowl collection. It doesn't have a name on the bottom, so it is not a Pyrex. But I fell in love with it for just $2.00.
I love scarves. I use them on dressers, tables, stands, shelves, just about everywhere. I am always looking for things that are a little different. I picked up two of these for just .25 cents each.
I have become obsessed with pink lately. I have a couple of rooms in the house that different shades of pink go very well with everything else in the room. I found these gorgeous artificial flowers for just a quarter, so I had to get them.
I was beyond thrilled when I found a new milk glass vase that the flower fit perfectly in. Do you notice the pineapple cut and shape of the vase. What a great way to say welcome when you enter a room. I only had to pay .50 cents for this lovely.
And look at these unique pot holders. I actually did not have to buy these. My friend, Sherrie, is getting ready for a yard sale and found these in an old trunk of hers and she gave them to me in swap for a little rooster salt dip.
I found this basket at one of the sales. It has the look of a Nantucket basket and was just .25 cents so I snapped it up.
I'm going to use it for potholders, starting with the ones Sherrie gave me. These will just be for display. They are too pretty to use.
I found this little Christmas tray for .25 cents, but I didn't want it for Christmas. I am going to paint it lavender and use it in the lavender bath to set bath salts, candles, or something on.
I found this cute little celery dish for just a $1.00 at the estate sale.
At another estate sale, I found this clear dish for $1.00 as well.
Not a bad haul for just $5.75. Now comes the fun part. Where in the world to put some of these items.
