Tomorrow...is another day...not sure if we will go out and look around.
Before I go on..I want to thank all of you who left the sweetest commentS on my post concerning my friend Nedra.
I called her today and told her. We had a great time remembering. I'm trying to talk her into moving back to California..she and Mick have people here. Their home is up for sale..so we shall see. How I would love that!!
So....on to my "hit or miss" post...
This red wooden picture frame..so sweet. 50 cents.
NOW..this really made me smile.
On a blanket with a bunch of junk half covered and dusty, was this was this sweet covered serving dish.
This is on the bottom of it. It was 25 cents!!
It is going to look so sweet on the table at Easter.
This pretty mirror I found at the same Estate Sale as the other things..I should have dusted it before I took the pictures of it. :( It's extremely heavy)
The frame seems to be of some sort of copper material. The back is entirely hard covered. No paper.
I was $30 at the sale..I came back on Sunday and bought it for $15. Where will I hang it? Who knows. It's been sitting where you see it for the past week. I have to do some..rearranging.
The glass is perfect, it just needs cleaning.
So...what do you think? A hit or a miss??
A round 50's style Christmas tablecloth.
Flawless. The table clothes were expensive but half price when I bought them.
This one was $5 and the one below was $10.
A pretty white LARGE round Batten burg tablecloth.
I may take this cloth and have it done at a Laundry. These are not easy to iron. It's a really nice holiday tablecloth. It may go to a daughter as they do more entertaining than I do...maybe..
Do you have a closet where you hang your table clothes? I have discovered that it's a great way to store them. Hanging them in garment bags is nice. The crocheted ones go in a long drawer, as do the doilies.
I have a large dresser for those.
Everything is now washed, pressed and almost all put away. That little embroidered cloth I said had stains?
The one I was worried about. Every single stain came out.
I filled the washer, spray the spots and carefully rubbed in the cleaner..working it into the fiber gently..then..and this always scares me...I quickly tipped the bleach bottle up on the spots..and threw them immediately into the washer and started it. It works every time. I know it will make some of you cringe..it does me too..but it works. So far..I've lost nothing..or ruined nothing. Amazing!
It turned out just gorgeous. NO loss of color at all.
I've probably just been lucky. A professional I'm sure would have a heart attack!
