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.
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
