Well! Didn't you just sneak in and have a really good time miss! Wow - I love the white items and the coal bucket! I'm a searcher of garden items and I would put that tucked away under a shrub somewhere or with some hens and chicks in it. Great finds...makes me want to go out! Jennifer stop in and say hi....

You were so lucky with that fine old bucket, the silver candleholders and the cute little handmirror!
They do that once in a while, hold a sale, and then you have to be on the spot!

I see you had as much fun last weekend with your vintage finds, as I did! One thing I did find was a beautiful vintage rose set of drapes & 2 matching twin bedspreads, so I went back and checked your posts on slipcovers and ordered both the books you used off ebay! Also, I've enjoyed your side bar with the bountiful pics, but haven't been able to find the site, do you mind sharing? Thanks so much neighbor, (I too am a Washitonian)!

Beverly said...

Oh my! You really did hit the jackpot. I have been on the lookout for silver lately too and found the cutest little compote. I love the old mirror and the way it reflected that cute little angel. Thanks for sharing.

How pretty. I would have ran over that guy for those serving pieces too. And, a cow creamer that is a great find!
