This swan & putti's dish is missing the lid but it will still make charming storage in the studio. I'm thinking I'll use it to stash a few millinery blooms.
Loved this Lefton porcelain St Francis of Assisi planter. Notice that I used the past tense? It didn't survive long. I left it on the kitchen cabinet to handwash it & hubby knocked it off & broke it. :o( The head survided though so I'll use it an art project.
Chalkware bust of a baby, mercury glass acorn, misc. bling, Lefton ashtray & another rose pot, sans lid...again it'll still be great for storage.
Picture frame w/ cherub, Laura Ashley wallpaper border & another Boopie glass to add to my collection. I have them in all sizes...love the little hobnail detail on the bottoms.
I need more china like I need another husband but these reticulated rim china plates had to come home w/ me (if John Cusack ever asks me to marry him, he'll be coming home w/ me too LOL)....& I got all 4 for $4! A nice surprise was that the floral scenes are different on each plate.
Silverplated sugar & creamer.
Royal Albert Old Country roses tin...will probably be turned into an altered doll of some sort.
Sweet, crocheted chapel.
Huge "diamond" ring.
Love the hangling lamp (at least I will after it's painted white) & I can't seem to resist a wedding veil. Especially when they're only a couple of bucks. This one is vintage & has some beautiful lace trim.
LOVE these handmade fairy wings! They are really well-crafted! Love teh shirred tulle....
and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the paper roses!
This Ideal baby doll from 1966 was quickly adopted by me, even though $4.99 is a bit steep for me to pay for a worn out baby doll, but I just had to have her.
Look at her sweet, sweet expression!
Hubby & I hit a couple of garage sales last weekend too. Scored a beat-up, slightly rusty tole tray for a $1, some wodden thingamabobbers (does anyone know what they are?) & a small, vintage print of Jesus.
Old, wooden industrial bobbins...they'll get wound w/ lace.
And lots of scrapbook pages full of vintage cards...from every holiday & every occasion.
A lovely lace parasol...again, only a dollar!
And one of my favorite all-time finds....an aged, brass magnifying glass on an adjustable stand. Wish it were a better photo! I'll try to get a better one of it using it in a vignette. I paid a whopping $3 for this treasure.
Silverplated cordials....$2 for all 6.
And an old moss rose tea set....$5!!!!
Charming embroidered pillow cover w/ sweet puppies in a basket on it...this was my big buy of the week @ $8.
A trio of lace valances, vintage frames, vintage hankie,
and tiny, little critters. All of them for 50 cents.
Look at the wonderful lace from the valances! It's over 18" long. And I think I only paid $4 for all 3 valances. Yep, I'm a price dropper! But I can't help but brag about how little I pay for stuff. ;o)
And I scored lots of rolls of vintage trims...for a quarter a bolt! I know, I know...but don't hate me cause I'm thrifty. ;o)
