There were quite a few garage sales on Friday, and I did pretty well. First is this vintage tablecloth. I know it's pretty wrinkled, but I just wanted to throw it on the table and see if I liked it. Oh no, guess what? I like it! Add it to the hundred others I have. I'm supposed to be selling these on Ebay, but every time I buy one, it's my new favorite. It was only 50 cents, and....meet my new favorite!
This old etched mirror is gorgeous! I desperately want to hang this on the wall, but there is no hanger, only felt on the back. Any suggestions? I wish they made an industrial strength plate hanger!
That huge trellis was found curbside. I love when it's also garbage day when we're out garage saling! My friend Nancy is fearless, so she jumped out and got it for me. I really should bring my camera on garage sale day, because it's always an adventure! We always get lost in the part of town where we found the trellis, and there's just no excuse for it, because I've lived here for 14 years, and she's lived here even longer! Lots of fun!
I hit the vintage Santa jackpot at one sale! Do you like my fancy backdrop for this picture? It's my microwave! I spare no expense for you all! Love the old blowmold Santa, and I've started collecting those cups. But....
one of the little cups is stuck inside the big one! I tried and tried to get it out, and now I'm just afraid it will break and I'll cut myself. What do I do? Do I have to lube up Santa with some Vaseline or olive oil?! Help!
I love this bowl. I'm calling it my Atomic Bowl! It's shaped like things from the 50s I think, that were called Atomic. It says Bolero Therm-O-Ware on the bottom. Looove iiittt!!
Another "Mother" picture, and Wuthering Heights and Sense and Sensability, two books that were on my "must have" list.
And finally, a vintage pink sewing basket. This will be going on Ebay. My goodness, it better! My husband always asks me, when I come home from garage saling, keeping or selling? And lately it's been keeping every time! If you would like to see more thrifty treasures, hop on over to Southern Hospitality.
