....which is just fine with me. You just never know what is going to turn up..sometimes almost nothing..then the next time..the FIND of the year!
Our first garage sale stop I found this basket with liner in brand new condition!
I put my large fruit bowl in so you can see how large it is.
Plus a large quilted heart ..I'll show you that tomorrow.
This big nice heavy basket was sitting in the kitchen at the Estate Sale and it was full of kitchen utensils. So...I just emptied it and bought it for three dollars. Totally worth it~
This pretty berry colored afghan was 50 cents at a garage sale we stopped at.
If you look carefully you can see that the edges are scalloped.
I bought another one for my neighbor who loves lavendar for just 25 cents. No fringe..but so lovely..the softest lavendar color..no picture. I forgot to take one.
Here are two of the four doilies I bought at the Estate Sale.
I have put two of them in my hutch..
Yeah...I like it ...I do! Oops..I forgot to move the little felt bag for granddaughter.
SO much work goes into these. I know, I used to make them.
Ecru is not a favorite color of mine for doilies, but it was so pretty and round and....and all of it came to just $8.00. Of course it was the following day Sunday) and everything was half price. :)
Daughter Maryalice, who was with us, called later and wanted me to go back and check on a green leather chair...LIGHT GREEN! Yikes, but she loved it. It would have been just $50.00 and I have to say it was sort of pretty. However it had sold just an hour before I arrived...but I did get deals on all of the doilies. I was so pleased!
This pretty linen and crochet dresser scarf for a quarter at a garage sale. I later found some tiny, tiny holes in on end. Do I care..HEAVENS no! It's on my ironing board ready to be pressed...and put with the rest of the crocheted things. :) Lots of pretty crocheted things...yes..that's security. (ok..just kidding!) But it is a nice feeling to go pick out fresh linens etc. when you are decorating..IF you are into that sort of thing of course.
I was watching a program on TV called "Sell This Home" and a couple came in to look at the home that folks had up for sale. The woman looked at the agent and said in a scathing tone, "It looks like DOILY CENTRAL in here. :) Not everyone likes them. That's just so sad ...but tastes in decor are very different.
Does this indicate OLD? Heaven's, I hope not!
Pretty glass heart with red ribbon to hang it with. I think it was a quarter at another garage sale we stopped at. Cute, isn't it?
More tomorrow. Really? Yes... :) really!! I told you we did good! Not much, just a few more things I think.
Stay warm, stay home and stay safe. You are loved.
