estate sale finds...

I had a fun day yesterday.....I took the day off and went to Albert Lea and went antiqueing with my girlfriends, had lunch and then had my mammogram. We had a fun time shopping and while at the antique shop we heard that my friend that I used to do estate sales was having a sale.......so I went to surprise her after my appt! It was so fun to see her and all the girls working and some of the "regulars" that always come. It's fun to go back to the small town we moved from where you know everyone and they know you....
I got these great clocks...yes....thats the original rhinestones on that clock....$3.00 each! I couldn't believe this was still here!!!!! WOW! All this vintage tissue paper for $10.00! Aren't these adorable! They are about 1/2 " tall each. $2.00 for all.


This is a find I found earlier but couldn't believe it! I LOVE Barbola roses and have never seen a bird ~~



Here's my vignette in my house with all my vintage wicker baskets with Barbola Roses...and of my lady oil paintings. You can't really see it in the picture too well but that wallpapered box is what my background is.......I took a pic and Sara put it for my background......I love that box!
