Saturday Treasures 9/28/2013

Alas!! A dark and rainy Saturday afternoon.  What will I do?  What will I do?  The Flea Market is closed for the Tulsa State Fair and it's raining so there's not going to be many garage sales.  The Estate Sales are most usually held during the week.
What will I do?
And then......
I remembered an inside Estate Sale held at a shopping center that was advertised by email this week.  I quickly went back and looked at the email and yes, it was thru today. 
Over I went in the pouring down rain - but was it ever worth it.  It was the last day, so everything was 50% off.l
The above photo shows my stash for the day!
A really pretty and heavy woven wrought iron basket that either stands on it's own or hangs, a cute little wooden cabinet and a bright shiny gold clock that doesn't work.  (But, I don't care - I'm going to paint it all up anyway.)
A sack full of old tarnished silverware - just like I like them.
Some little tart pans to use for Christmas decorations, a beautiful piece of pewter and a little Limoges-like box for Christmas.  When you open the little wreath box up, it has ceramic candy canes in it.
Also got this cute little Limoges-like box and thought it would be cute just tucked in some shelf for Halloween.
Two beautiful red transferware plates.
Love these Haviland Ireland cups, saucer and two plates.  They have gold rims and are really elegant.
I also got a piece of red/white plaid decoration fabric, a gorgeous lace doily (big), some dainty little embroidered hand towels and a couple other pieces of embroidery.
So, I was a happy camper!
Till next time, Judy


  1. Sounds like you hit the jack pot. The items are really nice. Love the red dishes.
    Have a great week creating.
    How's John doing?

  2. Well, you made out like a bandit after all! I can see those tart shells becoming something terrific for the holidays!


  3. There isn't one thing you bought that I would have left behind. What a blessing to have remembered. I think the box with the tiny candy canes inside is so cute!!!

  4. Judy, You are a great treasure hunter ...I love what you found. blessings, xoxo,Susie

  5. You did good! Most sales around here are on the weekend, sometimes into Monday. Dark and wet here today.

  6. You sure did, Judy! I love all of it, especially the Haviland, and the witch's hat. Those tart shells, I'd put some puff pastry in, bake, cool, and add preserves, lemon curd, shrimp salad, mmmm mmmm. But I know you will make ornaments that are beauties. xo
