Garage Sale Finds

Found a few treasures this morning. There weren't many gs but we did find a few that were more or less in the same area.  Unfortunately the grands, who set out with much enthusiasm, found very little.
I bought the Amelia Bedelia book for my own pleasure ( I'm sure they'll let me read it to them!! I'm more of an AB fan than they are), and the "water wand" I got for a few cents, more to give my GS SOMETHING since there were no boy's toys for his age.


The grands called this a deformed pumpkin but I really like it and it will most certainly be part of my Fall display.


            I am fond of white dishes and this covered veg. bowl is perfect ( paid a dollar).


             Pretty blue cup and saucer  (is this a demi-tasse??)


I don't have a clue yet what I'll do with this quilted pillow sham but I like it and it was .25


We had a good rain last night, heavy enough to bend the Phlox and Hydrangeas down to the ground. More showers are forecast so there's no use going to shake them off. Oh well, we are so thankful for rain at long last.

  2. My daughter would have gone for the two blue and white tea cups:) Yesterday's rain must have put people off from holding a garage sale, as usually this time of the year is prime saleing season!

    1. I think people went through a few years of de-cluttering and now they just don't have that much to sell because this whole Spring/Summer gs season has not been great. A lot of kids clothing and toys, which you and I are not in the market for.

  4. Looks like lots of great finds.
    I have seen on the news all the heat B.C has been having. We are in a hot spell in Ontario now. Hoping for some rain here too.
    Love your blog!

    1. We had a couple of days of lovely showers and that has helped the drought situation somewhat at least. Thanks for popping by!!

  5. I'm always a sucker for anything hand-made, like the quilted pillow sham. I can't bear to see something like that, which took a lot of time to make, sort of homeless! :) The tea cup is beautiful, and I think I might have gone for Amelia Bedelia, too!

    1. I read the Amelia B. book to the little man but I don't think he "got" a lot of the funny stuff and my attempts to explain were lame. After he sat and listened patiently he asked if now I'd read one of HIS books ( which I did).
