Garage Sale Barricade

Today didn't start off quite the way I had hoped. I was excited about the first sale but when we got near the location we found all of the streets barricaded. I still don't know what was going on but it seemed more like the "We're having a parade" kind of barricade as opposed to the "Crime scene, keep out" kind. We weren't able to get to that sale so we tried two more. I found a few more date stamps and rulers for my collections.

The last sale was filled with shabby chic treasures. The prices were a little high so I couldn't buy everything that I loved. I did find a pair of perfect wall sconces that look somewhat similar to my chandelier.

Here's what it looks like without the flowers.

And here is the glass from my chandelier.

I also found a few adorable hankies. I love the frog teacher and the duck student.
The last item I found was an embroidered dishtowel with three cute kittens.

  3. What a cute little hankie--enhanced, of course, by the red!


    DON’T LET THAT SCARLET GO TO YOUR HEAD

    Don’t let that scarlet go to your head!
    Be very glad you haven’t been bled!
    Give thanks for the colors dear to your heart:
    Carmine and cherry and wine— a good start!
