Some good finds

I checked the paper yesterday for yard sales and only one caught my eye that listed the types of items I would look for. It was just 7 minutes away from my house so I decided to pop over and see if I could find anything......and I sure did! Here are my finds for yesterday.

I fell in love with this little tea pot. I have always loved purple and yellow.

These little pins will be so cute at Christmas.

I found three dresser scarves with eyelet design. They are very pretty. I need to take the time to iron stuff before I take a picture of it. I just get so excited to share my purchases that I snap photos as soon as I get home. 

This is another pretty dresser scarf. It is a sheer lace material. 

I really loved this dresser scarf. It has butterflies on it. 

This is a little place mat that I liked. 

This little linen napkin was so pretty. It is buttery yellow. I will probably use it as a bread basket liner. 

I picked up these three old aprons. I'm sending the blue one to my sister. 

I bought this apron but I'm not sure if I will ever use it. I'll see if Sis wants it. It was just .25 cents and you can't pass up a bargain like that. 

I know I am going to wear this one for Thanksgiving. I love it. 

This vintage tablecloth is going to be used on the patio table when hubby and I eat outside.

I see vintage tablecloths in this pattern all the time. I love it. I couldn't believe she had one in this pattern. I've looked at antique stores for it before. 

Another cute bread cloth for my holiday collection. This one has Christmas designs. 

My favorite find of the day was this little Pyrex bowl for just $1.00. 

Another glass dish. I love these divided dishes. I use them for a lot of different things. I'm going to use this one in my office for paper clips. Big on one side and regular size on the other size. 

I couldn't pass up these little Matchbox cars to put in Colby's toy box at my house.

Most of the above items were just a quarter a piece and some of them were even as low as a dime. All total, I got everything above for just $7.00. I would say that was a good bargain shopping day. 

But my favorite part of the day was getting a package in the mail from an E-bay auction I won. If you have read my blog for awhile, you know I have been looking for a pair of Holt Howard 1958 vintage cat salt and pepper shakers. I found them in an antique store here for $20.00 but didn't want to pay that for them. I have found them on E-bay for anywhere from $50 - $70. But I recently bid on a pair on an E-bay auction ... AND I WON. My winning bid? Just $5.95. You cannot imagine how thrilled I was. 

Well, the kitties arrived yesterday and are in excellent condition with no breaks or scratches. They now reside in a place of honor on my vintage milk glass tray on my wine rack. Don't you just love them?  They even have the copyright 1958 Holt Howard stamp on the bottom so I know they are the real thing. I kept going in the kitchen last night just to look at them because I couldn't believe I won them at such a low price. Hubby kept laughing at me. He said he wouldn't be surprised if I gave them names. Hmm, I'll have to think about that.
