Estate Sale Shopping

Hubby and I headed out Saturday morning to an estate sale that was about 10 minutes away. It felt good to get out, it's been quite a while since we went to an estate or a rummage sale. The following pictures are things that I found.

I always go outside to find stuff at estate sales and I seem to be the only one who does that. Lucky for me cause I get first pick. Isn't this cement dog just the cutest with the sweetest face? She is all chippy and battered but still intack.

Here's what she looked like when I found her.

I think she looks much better wearing her vintage hat, don't you? Now all she needs is a rhinestone necklace or a strand of pearls.

Another picture of our finds.

Vintage pictures with the prettest ornate fames. The frames have a few spots of missing gesso. I was thinking about painting them white to conceal the blemishes,What do you think?

Clusters of flowers on the frames, gorgeous! I paid $10.00 for both frames, what a deal!!

These pictures were $1.00 a piece. Who could pass up a deal like that. One of them has a water mark but that didn't stop me. Love the scalloped frames.

Notice the watermark?

A vintage hurricane candle holder with etched glass.

Another set of pictures.

This gorgeous vintage pitcher went home with me. I squelled silently when I saw it.

I'm heading over to Trader Joes to get some fresh flowers to put in it.

The pitcher has beautiful grazing and the colors are my all time favorites.

The lady who puts on these estate sales is having an estate sale every weekend this month. She said next weekend is another sale full of antiques and I'll be there early waiting at the front door to get first pick. Oh, how I can't wait!! I'll be sharing pictures of what I find at the next sales.

Have a relaxing Sunday, Janice:))

YUM! I LOVE that pooch. Things like that make me smile. And, yes, she's much cuter with her little bonnet. I would have squealed OUT LOUD when if I had seen that pitcher. It is wonderful. I have a soft spot for pitchers and creamers. I just can't seem to say no. I'm so glad garage sale time is just around the's all about the thrill of the hunt!
