First let me say that I cannot get into my comments. If anyone has asked me a question...I am so sorry...I am not sure what is wrong..but I am trying to get it figured out. So far no luck.
Thank you, Joyce, for trying to help me. Is anyone else having this problem?? NO comments?
I just get a blank page..with my post name at the top...nothing more.
The garage sales have been sparse for quite awhile..but we go anyway. It's our Saturday outing..
I always find things but haven't been posting them. I thought perhaps it got old after awhile.
This Saturday was a little better..but still not what they have been.
We went to several and at one I found some pieces of silverplate flatware that I really like and have been wanting more of...well...I FOUND it! But..not a single knife so far. I wonder what in the world happened to all the knives of this pattern??
The cut glass milk pitcher is lovely but I forgot to take a photo of it up close...
What is really interesting about this pattern is the little leaf on the lower backs of some of the spoons and forks. SO pretty. I paid 25 cents for each piece. They are very heavy. There is no pattern name on the back but they are triple platted and are 1847 Rogers Brothers...
A PERFECT set of nice heavy Westmoreland Milkglass. Not a chip...not a flea bite.
I paid 25 cents for the pair...last garage sale of the day...and also..
Same garage sale was this beautiful plate...25 cents. It is marked SILESIA on the back with an interesting mark above it.
I bought this crocheted doily many years ago and it had tassels on the longest points on all four sides...but they tangled in the washer...(I'm an idiot and didn't hand wash it!) I cut them all of and stopped using the piece because I didn't like how it looked..
...and then I saw those little hankies that people put buttons on to put over drinks on the patio...and I though...WHY NOT?? and ..I love it again, and while I chatted on the phone the other night I added some of the buttons I bought at a yard sale. A baggie of them...I LOVE buttons!
Now I love it again! :)
Back to the garge sales on Saturday...
This little demitasse cup and saucer was 50 cents! Made in occupied Japan. Pale butter yellow on white with tiny roses...so sweet!
This little baby sweater was 50 cents...
What if it's a boy? Well there will be more born...I'm sure a little girl will wear it one day.
I couldn't resist. I assured the rather sad Mom that sold it that it would be loved and cared for always. She just smiled and said "I believe you..."
And that was our Saturday adventure.
We've been taking my daughter, Mary and her husband ...wish there was a camera following us.
What a hoot they are!!
We have the best time on Saturday mornings...topped off by a pancake breakfast at our favorite restaurant where everybody knows our name! :) Well...almost everybody!!
Love and hugs,
