Garage sale finds

Hope you all are enjoying the sun we have had it a few days here and my car thermometer said 96 Tuesday parked in Target parking lot facing the sun !!!HOT and I never did like hot weather.The local TV station said 82 ?

 I stopped at a couple yard sale Saturday  and found some treasures. First I found this pretty decanter to put more white vintage buttons in and I found this pretty gold ornate wastebasket and tissue holder from the 1960's . Which I don't know why I bought it, don't need it and I have plenty of vintage wastepaper baskets around, so it may go in my yard sale LOL but I can't pass up a bargain, will pass a bargain onto someone else

 my stash of buying this week
 Here is the pretty decanter , first one I have with a pouring spout, olive oil would work in this also, its a large one
  and for some reason last summer these large shells started coming to me through friends and yard sale so now I have about 7 of them plus a huge bowl of fancy shells
 I was shopping at Michael's to get a gift for someone and they had all the cardboard boxes and suitcases 40 % off so I got these hat boxes and I will have to get pictures of the cute suitcases I got to put treasures in and try and straighten up my studio, it looks like a big wind storm went through , however I know where everything is .
 This is the inside of the hat box , LOVE it, it should be full of lace before to long
 Question? I am the only one getting a lot of anonymous spam comments these days ?

Linky parties 


  1. Love all your wonderful finds. They all make me smile!

  2. My grandmother had a cruet like that one and she kept it on the kitchen table full of vinegar and hot peppers. It was pretty and that stuff sure was good on ham and beans or boiled cabbage. Memories.Richard and Sissy

  3. Love the square decanter with the spout. You are right, it would be perfect for oil. Are those optomotrist lenses in front of it??
    I had to block Anonymous comments almost a year ago because I got some extremely rude comments and foul language, clearly not from any "real" blog followers.

  4. Love your pretty wastebasket and decanter. Nice finds! I too had to block anonymous comments several months ago.

  5. Great finds! I love the decanter and the shell!! Thanks for sharing with Diann and I at TTF this week!


  6. How wonderful to meet you! I think you're adorable. And, thank yo for visiting me today. Yes, I'm receiving too many anon comments which are so annoying as they are all spam. I had to eliminate their ability to leaved comments. All the best....

  7. You found so many treasures!!! The decanter is lovely! Thank you for sharing and thanks for the visit and sweet comment at The Dedicated House. It means the world! I would love it if you would share this at my Make it Pretty Monday party which goes live Monday at 8am CDT. Here's this week's link if you want to check it out. Hope to see you at the bash! Have a happy weekend. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
