Now I’m well aware that I needed all this like a hole in the head. But I hit some estate sales yesterday that were almost too good to be true. The last one had so much stuff it would take you days to see it all. And of course on Saturday, everything was half off.
I love herbs. So finding this with the chamomile was a must-have.
I finally have my first Spode piece. And it was $5.
My first Blue Willow plates, which I’d been wanting for so long. All I got were the two sizes of plates (8 each). But at half-price, I felt they were a very good buy. (Half off the price you see.)
I was thinking of this mosaic cake stand for outdoors. Place a little birdbath on top, perhaps? See the sweet little bird at the bottom?
Can’t pass up a toile lampshade for a $1. Or much of anything in blue and white glass.
I don’t know how many kitchen canister sets I have. Probably four or five. So I didn’t need this. But at $5 for the set, aren’t they just supremely cute?
I am always enamored of old vintage jars. And there’s a little yellow wire basket that had to come home with me for 50 cents.
And this little scooper could be put to many uses. The first one I thought of was for scooping bird seed.
Now that I have all these pretties, I’m dying to get in there and fuss with them a bit. But the late afternoon brought something I wasn’t expecting.
I was outside trying to get a dragging gate to close when I lost my balance and fell over a stack of decking lumber. Usually I walk away from such little spills. I do yoga twice a day and stay pretty limbered up and this helps when you are not labeled “graceful.” But after hours of pain, I finally had a neighbor drive me down to the clinic. Now I have a brace on my left leg from my ankle up the length of my leg.
So I’m sitting here just feet away at my computer, sore and wondering why I didn’t take that doctor up on the option of pain pills. Eyeing those new glass pretties I brought home yesterday. But trying to stay away from them lest I hobble and stumble and break something. So I guess I’ll just have to gaze at it longingly for awhile.
