Fun Finds...

I've been able to go to a few garage sales this week...usually I buy mostly for my vintage resale business, but this week I've had a lot of fun buying things I plan to use myself!  I found the great chippy twig stand for just $1.00!  It will be nice in the porch we are remodeling!  At the same sale, they were selling a large lot of fabulous matelasse, including this wonderful old spread...

There was also a newer king spread, two twins, four Euro shams and three standard shams...

I was thrilled with this and bought the entire lot of old and new pieces for $20!  I have some projects planned for some of the pieces, other pieces will be used in bedrooms!
I also found two white lamps (think I'll replace or re-do the shades) that will go on bedside tables...

Another great find this week was this lot of three spatterware Texas Ware bowls in a wonderful light blue color...I paid $2.00 for all three!

I can't wait to curl up in the porch and read these books I found...

I had so much fun shopping this week!  Don't you just love garage sales and thrift stores?
