Since I couldn't get my photos posted of what I was going to use for Show and Tell this Friday, I will use the post below to show you some of the great "treasures" I found last weekend. For more show and tell head over to http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/ and join the fun!
Last Friday Yngwie and I went to a local estate sale in search of what they advertised as "vintage guitars'. When we got there, there was only one guitar and it was beyond vintage. It was just junk. After glancing around downstairs, I determined there was nothing I wanted and we started to leave. As we stepped in the hall I noticed some stairs and asked if anything was up there and the lady said "oh yes, lots" and boy was she right! Every room upstairs was filled with dishes, pictures, linens, old advertising signs, etc.. I bought a couple of items on Friday This gravy boat and creamer I loved as they are blue and white the colors in my kitchen! Then I noticed a sign that said everything would be half off on Sunday! So I waited until Sunday and went back. Some of the things I wanted had already been sold, but I was able to get a few things.
I got his pretty platter to give to my sister for Christmas. Our rule this Christmas is that it must be thrifted or homemade! So if I fill this with cookies, I have satisfied both rules! I paid $2.00 for this. I also got these two pottery shoes for .50 each and the When you Entertain book for $1.00.
Isn't this little bird pitcher adorable? He cost $1.00I guess I was in a pitcher buying mood, because I got this one as well for $2.00. I have a bowl that matches this already.
I also got a couple of other things that I will share later on.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
