P.S. I have added a couple of things...a signature to the painting and an ironstone pitcher I forgot to post...
That is the title of the painting on my tray.
This is a hand painted tray and is signed by the artist on the back. The woman who sold it said the artist is her friend and that everytime she has a "show" she buys something..and she has to cut back on some of her collection..
I said, "GREAT idea! and smiled! $10.00. I grinned all the way to the car...but first..
When I posted last night I forgot to take a photo of the back so you can see the artists signature..so..I just added it. Probably not a big deal..but I mean the artist should get recognition even if it is just on my blog! :)
I bought the easel it was displayed on for another $2.00. I LOVE that easel! VERY heavy iron. I thought the finish on it was gorgeous!
I didn't exactly steal these two plate. But...I love red transferware. A lot! So...they followed me home also. I kept saying "I DON'T NEED YOU!" But nope, they wouldn't listen. One was 8.00 and the other was 5.00. They started off much higher..so..you know...
Enlarge this and you can see to the left of the screen a darling little white glass frame. FREE! You can see the two DVD's I found for $1.00. A little blue tin of writing paper. Brand new.. and FREE! Many just wanted to get rid of the stuff and not have to put it all away. Both the frame, the writing paper came from the same garage sale as the cookbooks. I also bought a novel in perfect condition "The Vinyard" for $1.00!
This was a nice little cookbook put out by a church. Family recipes...I said...what the heck for 1.00 it came home with me.
A little book on how to give tea parties...Uh huh...I do THAT a lot..but...I do have daughters that do that..so...home it came to continue the journey to a daughter or granddaughter!
$1.00. It ties shut with little ribbons...how cute is that?! ALL of the cookbooks were like BRAND NEW. That is what I look for! Gently used if old is fine.
The woman who owned the cookbooks said this one was her favorites and that she had a duplicate that was why she was selling this one.... San Francisco has some wonderful restaurants...so for $1.00 I took that chance...
This recipe box was nice a large and in perfect condition. Mine is so chock full of recipes that I cannot get the lid closed and this was only .25 cents...so in the car it went. I have Granddaughters just starting out. They are going to love their Grandma!
Listen...you CANNOT go wrong on a Chocolate Cookbook...I don't bake all that much, but I love to read them. :) Do you believe me?
Hmmmm.. a Costco Cookbook? Love their food...so...what the heck! .50 cents!! WELL spent I say!!
Sweetie loved the fact that he bought all of these CD's for a total of $20. He loves music and CD's are what he looks for. Some were just .50 cents. He always checks to see if the CD is in the case and that it is the correct one.
He sometimes buys them even if they aren't the kind of music he likes...I asked him why? He said he likes to give all music a chance. Whatta guy!
Well, that's it. My Saturday finds. Well worth getting up early I would say. Followed by our pancake breakfast of course!
Have a wonderful Fathers Day, everyone!
Love and smiles,
P.S. I am adding this post script because this morning when we were getting ready church, sweet husband went to the car and discovered in the back seat, wrapped in a towel, this beautiful ironstone (?) pitcher I bought Saturday for 2.00 and forgot to bring into the house.
Below you can see the bottom of the pitcher and a couple of hairline cracks that don't go all the way through...so they didn't bother me at all. This has SO many uses!! Plus, I think it's just a beautiful pitcher!! It's by Homer Laughlin...and I think that's good. Right?? It is close to 9 1/2" tall. A nice size. Very heavy.
Bye bye...and hugs!
