More Estate Sale Treasures

More Estate Sale Treasures

Vintage Pitcher and Six Tall Glass
Perfect for summer ice tea or lemonade

Gardian Service Hammered Aluminum Pan

Vintage Chenille Bedspread
This one is really a pretty blue and has no damage

Two curtain panels probably from the 1950s
They have some storage stains
I'm thinking of soaking in oxy clean before listing
What do you think should I soak them or sale them as it?

These next two photos are kitchen towels
These could probably use some soaking also

I've not decided if I'm going to go to the garage and estate sales tomorrow.  Keep saying I have enough but there is always the thrill of the hunt...plus it gives hubby and I something fun to do on Saturdays!  Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Estate Sale Finds

Around here garage sales seem to end before the holidays and don't start up again until March or April. But there are still some Estate Sales that take place during the winter and today I took some photos of some vintage finds to list on Ebay.

Pink glass owl toothpick holder

 This pitcher was made  Knowles-Taylor-Knowles
between 1870 - 1931

Wooden owl salt and pepper
made in Japan, unusual

Easter melted plastic popcorn Ducklings

April Cornell pillow

Handmade 3 piece Baptism set

1950's - 60's Flower Girl Party Dress
It has a satin slip that goes with it.

I just love the Baptism set and the Flower Girl Party Dress.  They both came from the same Estate Sale the family that lived there had eight children and I think the mother must have keep all of their clothing from the time they were little! Every room in the house was loaded with clothing including the basement and attic. 

I really have so many treasures to list on Ebay that I don't need to go to any more estate sales or garage sales...but I can't stop!  Well it is my only vice!

Playing In The Dirt!

Earth laughs in flowers. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

It was such a beautiful day with the sun shining bright and warm! 

So I spent the day playing in the dirt!

See how bright the sun was ... here is my shadow!

These are some photos of my garden it is looking a little sad.

I did do a lot of clean up

A few daffodils are blooming!

This is in the front of my house

I do have alot of wild onions and I do hate them
they are so hard to get rid of

Found a box of daffodil bulbs I didn't plant last fall
put them in this planter...hope they bloom
then I'll plant them in the garden

Bought this cement planter at a garage sale last summer

More of that darn wild onion

They are hard to see but there are hundreds of
Rose of Sharon start ups
To me Rose of Sharon is like a bad weed!
I've even trim the bushes so they don't bloom but of course
they still do...then drop their seeds and all
these little starter pop up everywhere!

This is the very shady side of the house there is a bleeding heart
and ferns here - I'll be sure and show it to you
when they bloom!

I really only have a very small yard but it sure takes a lot of time
to keep up with all the garden stuff !

Found these on the Better Homes and Garden web site
they are Sombrero coneflowers WOW they are really beautiful!

Spring and Daffodils

It is dark, windy and rainy here today so I decided to search for spring! Found these photos...so very beautiful!

And this poem

I Wander Lonely as a Cloud

William Wordsworth 1807

I wandered lonely as a Cloud
 That floats on high o'er Vales and Hills,
 When all at once I saw a crowd
 A host of dancing Daffodils;
 Along the Lake, beneath the trees,
 Ten thousand dancing in the breeze.

The waves beside them danced, but they
 Outdid the sparkling waves in glee: --
 A poet could not but be gay
 In such a laughing company:
 I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
 What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft when on my couch I lie
 In vacant or in pensive mood,
 They flash upon that inward eye
 Which is the bliss of solitude,
 And then my heart with pleasure fills,
 And dances with the Daffodils.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!
Warm hugs,
