Shopping Break

I needed to get away from painting and creating this weekend.  So, we went to a few garage and estate sales.

The minute I stepped inside this sale, I knew I'd find something.

Yes, I spotted the carved tables right away, but, the price was more than I wanted to spend.

I actually had more fun (price wise) in the basement,

and garage.

Yes, the birdcage came down.  Great color.

I love this bottle.

There's more, but, I have to do some cleaning and sorting.

See ya soon.

  9. What beautiful things you found, Rosemary! I love it all. I think this would have been one of those sales that I would have gotten excited about. Although, that excitement can die down when you start checking out the prices!

  10. Love your "finds", Rosemary! Yes, usually the basements and garages are more my speed and price range too. Can't wait to see what you do with all your goodies!

  15. Oh my! So much to see. Great items. What are the pink beads in the first photo?

  16. I would just LOVE to attend an estate, garage or junk sale with you! You have such a keen eye for stuff that I would probably just pass by. In your eyes that stuff is a beautiful creation. All of your finds will become great treasures in your hands. I especially love the bowl full of beautiful odds and ends. I can't wait to see what you do with your finds!

  17. wow! incredible finds. I would have bought everything you did. =)
    Some do not even need to be re done.

    be blessed

  18. Love the Christian Bros. bottle. I have been to the Christian Bros. winery when it existed, I think it's now a culinary academy. One of the times my friend and I were wine tasting and someone had a box of kittens outside Christian Bros. The sucker that I am, and maybe a few too many wine samples, I took a kitten home, mewing for an hour and a half in the car the entire way. It was a good cat. My boyfriend also went to Christian Bros. High School, so funny to see that bottle so far from home.

  19. Fun stuff! I always head straight for the garage, then the basement. The best stuff is always there!

  20. Oh, Rosemary, Why o Why ? Do I not find thèse kind of estate sales?

    am I understanding you to as you having them take down those cages for you? They are à find to love.
