...is exactly where we are. A book I bought at one of the garage sales brought that movie to mind. Did you see it? By todays standards, perhaps not all that great...but back then I loved it.
I'm a romantic.
Anyway..Saturday dawned warm and sunny. It's a bit early for the garage sales to begin in earnest, but we had to get out there and look.
There is snow on our mountains and more is supposed to be here by Wednesday, they say. It will fall very low..but none on us in the valley.
This lovely hand embroidered tablecloth was $5.00. It smelled so clean and nice.
All those tiny french knots....just beautiful. Lots of work there....
The tablecloth is linen and a nice large one.
Well worth the price. I always have to wonder why they don't want it anymore.
Free of stains! Free of holes! WHY??
No matter. It has a good home now.
And these pocket history books. Copyright 1920. The color is RED.
Price $4.00 Home they came. There are 8 of the books. I forgot one in the car.
I gently leafed through a couple of them and the pages seemed intact. I came across a bit of history about California and how we took it from the Mexicans and Indians. Exactly what I want to read and am very curious about. It might be very interesting being that it was written so long ago.
Probably rarely used, and since I love history..a mere $4.00 was a great price to me. He wanted $5 but took $4.00! What a nice fellow!
And this little hand painted dish. The bottom only says "Victorian china" handwritten.
in gold paint. *shrug* It goes nicely on my desk to drop my earrings in..or whatever.
Anything with roses on it... price was $3.00 and it was priced at $8.00. It's fun to do a bit of bargaining.
Of course I am always on the lookout for books. You know, to add to that overloaded bookcase you perhaps saw earlier? :)
JOHN GRISHAM...I love his novels. This was one I didn't have...and "Still Me" by Christopher Reeve. I picked it up with a feeling of sadness. This was a part of Christopher's life I have avoided knowing much about. It was a terrible accident to have happened, and then to have his beautiful wife follow him such a short time later, leaving a young son alone. I bought it. He deserves a place on my bookshelf.
Did I ever tell you that my baby brother is a quadriplegic? He had a terrible auto accident years ago and has been in a wheelchair ever since.
I pray for a cure for spinal injuries.
The books were a 25cents each. Perfect condition. A nice addition to my ever growning library.
And that was my Saturday finds. Not many sales out there but well worth the drive and it was a lovely outing for us.
Sending positive thoughts to all of you for a lovely week ahead.
*To my daughter, Dawn. CONGRATULATIONS on your engagement, my darling!
(Dawn is my latest follower! Can you believe that? I..think I may have arrived! :)
