Saturday's Vintage and antique finds

I am in the habit now of getting up early Saturday morning and looking in the
paper for some yard sales. I scored way up there this past
Saturday in the vintage/antique department.
Yes, rhinestone parts of old vintage jewelry are all in pieces,
but non-the-less, can still be used for crafting.
This vintage compote will get changed up a bit.
I will probably use the crystals for other things.
I was extremely excited when I found this in perfect condition!
All five of these old frames, some are quite old,
and the sweet chair down below, which I need
to take to my wood man for fixing. After that I
will paint it in some really fun way.
The grand total for all of these items together is $17.00
which I think is a steal for sure! What do you think?

Great finds. Ohhh! I am jealous of your rhinestones and crystals.
I used to find old chairs, paint them and make cute cushions and sell them. Your chair will be great.

Thank you for visiting and your kind words. I am a bling especially rhinestone lover, even in bits and pieces. I would have loved this find and the dish with the crystals!!! Yes, it was a good day! I still can't believe you have 8 kids!!! WOW.

Michelle, I just saw your comment on our White Christmas Tag Swap Flickr site. My computer's been out of order for a couple of weeks :(
Are you still interested in the swap? We have 19 but I think everyone's making 20 tags. I have one box here already so I can count those tomorrow & get back with you.
