at yard Sales that is. I've been loving the many summer yard sales and have even got Hubby to stop at them when we see one!
(Well, some of them anyway).
Let's look at all the loot I've brought home.
I got a shoe box full of shells and these sand dollars were wrapped in a 1984 newspaper and were found in the bottom of the box. They had been bleached and were super fragile so I made an emulsion of Elmer's Glue and water and brushed on them to toughen them up.
Not sure what I will do with these yet.......couldn't pass them up for 50 cents.
They looked so pretty drying in my kitchen window sill.
Also found this terra cota canister set for $1. Hubby drilled drainage holes in the bottom for me so I can use as flower pots. So far only have one planted with rosemary and used some of the shells to cover the soil in it.
LOVE this pink picture frame that I found at a sale. I can see it being re-purposed as either a mini chalkboard with some chalkboard paint or maybe a jewelry organizer.
Next are some dishes...........an addiction of mine.
The pink floral plate says 'Made in Occupied China' on the back. The cream colored plates are Fiesta Ware and the white plates with the blue rims are metal ware.
I may sell these on Etsy or I may use as flower pot saucers. I can see all 12 of the metal ware plates lined down the center of an old farm table with flowerpots with colorful blooms.
Too bad there is no long farm table in my future!
More metal ware......a colander and large pot.
Some milk glass that will get cleaned up and listed on Etsy and some Spanish moss. I love to use this moss to cover the soil in my flowerpots also.
I've been looking for something to cover the hideous stripped fabric that came on my chaise cushion and picked up this sheet with crochet trim for $1.25. I'm so happy with how it looks. I double folded it so that the dreaded strips would not peak through and love how the crocheted trim drapes off the end.
Books Galore! I am also addicted to old books and have found so many lately.
Isn't this some garage salen GOODNESS!!!
