Saturday was garage sale day. We both enjoy getting out and having a little treasure hunt.
I found some things I really liked this time!
This little oval silver box was the first thing I came across. It is quite heavy and was so tarnished that I didn't even realize the name "Rosemary" was inscribed on the lid.
I photographed it on my hutch and the floral arrangement reflected in the lid.
...so I took another..
This inside is lined with deep blue velvet. I just put a necklace inside so you can see.
(Wherever you are, I will take good care of it for you, Rosemary!)
Next I found this oblong lovely silver jewelry box. No inscription on the lid this time..but once again very tarnished. The inscription plate was blank but now gleams.
This lovely box was $4.00
This lovely silver dish was another find. My favorite pattern. Again..very heavy but very tarnished.
I have MORE to show you tomorrow. I tell you, it was a GOOD day!
I also have a story to tell you and I want your advice. It's a "what would you do" story.
So...off to bed to do some reading about King Henry the 8th and his wives. Love that English history.
I think it's the photo's and descriptions of the palaces that fascinate me. Nothing like I envisioned at all. Cold, dark dreary. And the antiquated toilet system...horrible!
No more Fairy Tale idea's. Reality sets in with History.
