Most recent finds

Been sailing through the yard sales both here in Southern Nevada and in Utah on Saturday mornings, and the following pictures are most of what I have found.  I think I am going to have fun changing up and displaying some of these things.
 Found this cute reproduction french footstool that looks brand new.  I am wanting to put different legs on it and make it just a little higher maybe.
 What a fun teacup this will be when it comes time to brew up my loose pack herbal teas.
 This precious little bottle jumped right out at me hidden in a whole flock of old bottles
 I think this was from the inside of an old drawer.  I am planning on doing something really cool with this in my kitchen redo.
 Remember these?  It is a Good Seasons cruit salad dressing mixer/shaker.  I was tickled to find it!
 Sad story with this one.  It had a lovely lid to it that got broken after I bought it.  Please provide bags for people when you have a yard sale, especially for the breakables.  I had a toddler and an armfull of stuff and the top fell to the concrete.  I was so sad!  I just put the mercury glass pinecone in so it would'nt look so plain.  Love the shape of it though.
I loved the blue for a fourth of July post I will do later.  I found two of these.
 This looks like depression glass, but it is a reproduction.  Loved it still!
 This frame will be perfect in my kitchen redo!
 cute old chair that will be in my craft room.
 one very pretty placemat!
now I just need to find some little trays to go underneath of the cover.

Good garage sale scores!! I have been banned from picking up things...so alas I have to live vicariously from free souls like you. Thanks for sharing. Keep smiling and creating

Too bad about the top, but your mercury topper was truly inspired - I do love it!
I also remember the Good Seasons cruet, and I remember the commercials on tv - too funny!
You found some wonderful treasures on your day out, but I think my favourite is the chair - I do love old painted chairs...

You founds some great treasures, I think my favorite is the footstool. You're right, it looks like it needs to be a little taller, but I love the cover. Sorry to hear about your mishap at the yard sale, that's happened to me before.
