Saturday morning bright and early we started out on
our treasure hunt..but before we even made it to the first garage...ESTATE SALE caught our eye...

Now I ought to know better..and usually I pass these by...but..something pulled me...and STOP we did!
Right inside the front door...there it was...exactly what I wanted...and had wanted for a long time..
but the price was always way more than I wanted to pay...but not this time! $75.00 later..we crammed this adorable little item into our CAR trunk. 
Yes..we did that!! :)
What a nice place to store my movies...
What's bothering me?  I can see an adorable bowl and pitcher on it...that's what's the matter with me!
And gorgeous hand decorated towels hung on that sweet little towl rack...

~...but I hung lovely pillow cases on it...just seems a shame..but one day it will be put to a better use..
I promise.  You see, my movies and ear phones..well, they were cluttering up the place.

On top is a sweet little basket of flower that only cost a quarter (it's amazing what a little dish soap and water will I LOVE them garage sales! :)
and there was more...but I will show you later...
I know you have other blogs to visit and I am trying to make mine a wee shorter..
Love and hugs...

Oh..wait...I did find another handbag on ebay...I sold my rifle to buy this sweet little bit of leather..
but it had everything I wanted..outside pockets..Two inside slip pockets and two zippered pockets..and the end pockets...not to mention that it's 15 inches long, nearly 9 inches high and 4 inches deep.  Soft? Ohhhh..yes!  BUT...NO MORE PURSES! 

..wonder if I am know? I just may be a purse addict! may be interested in joining our sweet Rebecca@ A Gathering Place for her lovely Giveaway!  She does do some lovely ones!  Go see!  You won't be sorry.. :)


  1. So happy for you that you found exactly what you've always wanted! That sweet little vanity must have known how much it would be appreciated, hence the SOS signal it sent out to lure you to the Estate Sale :)

    Nothing beats a soft leather bag and with summer on the way, white will be perfect!

    Enjoy your purchases/bargains!!!

  2. What a wonderful piece! I love finding treasures like that and using them for a totally different purpose.

  3. Love your treasures! You do find some of the best stuff!

  4. Love the New England Spring music you have playing today. Gentle and sweet sounding.


  5. I look forward to all your adventures and to the treasure-troves you bring home!!

    I must admit I've lived Purse-Free for about twenty years now. I just figured guys had it easy with pockets---so, lipstick and phone in one, ID case in the other, glasses snagged in the neck of my T, and I'm gone.

    But if I WERE a Purse-person---yours would definitely be the ONE. Gorgeous.

  6. My hat's off to you girlfriend!!! What a grand find in that piece you stuffed in your trunk! It's a great place for your movies and 'stuff'! It's just beautiful sweet Mona!

    God bless ya and have a terrific Tuesday beautiful lady!!! :o)

  7. That's a wonderful wash stand. I would have taken it home too!

    I love the cabinet and LOVE that purse. :) You did sooo good.

    Now...there is a chance I might be able to jingle your doorbell before long. My 35th HS Reunion is in PSprings in late July and we of COURSE will be attending. Hope we can meet up for a least coffee!

    Love to you~

  11. Mona, you always find amazing things for amazing prices...looks like this past week was no different! Love the little washstand.

  12. The little wash stand is adorable. Mr. Sweet and I bought one from an antiques store just before we married over 50 yrs ago and I still have it. I use mine as a bedside table in one of the guest rooms.
    Have fun with it.:))

  13. Hi Mona! Oh, how wonderful to hear from you! I've been gone and you were in my prayers. I hope you're feeling better and I can see you've been hitting the streets! :)

  15. Something else we have in common...I LOVE handbags! I look at them everywhere I go and buy more than I carry! lol Hugs to you, my friend! I hope you're taking it easy and relaxing more! Be good! ♥

  16. I love your cabinet. I have one that is very close to yours. I keep my sewing items in it and it works real well. You always find such great finds when you go garage saling. Wow!

  17. Mona, it's a sure sign that you are feeling much better when you return to the weekend sales. And, you manage to find the best deals!

  18. G'eve Mona ~ Sooo love that darling wash stand, & such a bargain $$. Your purse is a coup & so nice. You do well at these yard sales. Wish ours were this good out here.
