petits tresors = small treasures

I am going back on my word , I know I said no more yard sales ,( till I got some money saved for a trip ) HOWEVER my friend Donna had a moving yard sale and well after she ask me to help I just had to buy a few little things ! right? LOL
You have to buy when its there

 First of all she gave me a wedding dress , not hers but she didn't want to put it in the yards sale so she gave it to me , I will hang it in the studio and may cut it up for the material ? to re purpose it




I got a pair of glass candelabras that I just love and trying to fit them in somewhere in my house . These were her Great Aunts her Grandmothers sister. She was selling lots of her Mothers, Grandmothers and Great Aunts things and of course that is what I wanted. She has a 3 drawer charming  chest I will get when the house sells, they are having an auction then to sell all big items.


           The top pieces on these screw off where it prisms are I love them

               I also got very small salt & pepper glass screw top shakers                                                          


Here is more of the things I got from her, old vintage hats in perfect condition , grandma's colander, ball jar with flip lid,, hat box which I really like a huge crock bowl and I didn't get it in the picture, and lots of costume jewelry  . There was a big peacock feather pin and I will give that to a friend who is in the peacock zone now.


So 60's,  like the show Mad Men





I already put a pair of 3 strand pearls in my jewelry box which I will wear,
