Last weekend I happened upon a garage sale just around the corner and found a few treasures I wanted to share with you. First, these two ladies:
The bicycles in the background give them a certain je ne sais quoi, Don’t you thing? And of course Sir Rufus was standing guard to protect their honor. Yes, they need some love, but they cried out to be taken home with me. Who am I to refuse?
Choosing their new vestments is the least of my problems, though. Where in the world am I going to put them? Our home is already brimming with furniture. Am I the only one that can’t resist the calls of damsels in distress? What’s a girl to do? Just leave them there? Not possible. Especially when together they only set me back $15.
While I was there, I also spied a box of silvery looking things for a couple of dollars. Look what I found inside when I got home!
Some tin, some plate, and some bona fide silver. I nearly passed out! Such interesting shapes and little details hiding under all the tarnish. And just look at the unusual shape of the forks on the bottom left. And the sugar shells just next to them…gorgeous details on the bowl of the spoon! Once they are all cleaned up I’ll give you another peek.
So what am I going to do with all this stuff? I’m not sure yet, but I’ll keep you posted. Have you found any treasures lately? Do tell!
