Nursery Shopping Diversion

Friday was a Beautiful day!
So we headed off to the nursery to buy
a few new roses for the garden.

We are driving along enjoying the sunshine...
When I see boxes and stuff
 all over someones lawn....
It could not be a GARAGE SALE in FEBRUARY
unheard of!

This wicker chair was sitting there so pretty,
No price, I ask....holding my breath alittle,
I could not pay her fast enough!

I love this curley cue style wicker, I have two smaller
chairs and a stool in this style on my front porch,
And I am always on the prowl for more!

So we go to the nursery center, Buy some Beautiful Roses.

That night I still have garage sales on the brain.
So I peak at craigs list and find a few more
sales on Saturday that sound promising. 

Could I be so lucky?

So for $12 more dollars I scored the following

This stunning vintage umbrella with rhinestone decorated handle.

A Vintage pearl double strand necklace, 
 with a lovley rhinestone clasp. 
I love the special details on vintage jewelery

A velvety millinery flower,

a 1901 needle book in perfect condition
from Edward Rose

And this sweet dimensional rose crocheted pillow.

It was a Great Haul!

I'm sure we will be back to our rainy spring
Northwest weather soon.

But what a great break!

Hope you had a Fabulous weekend!

Great finds!!!! I never seem to get that lucky with garage sales! :-)

We have been lucky with our weather here in the NW, and I guess some people figure they may as well get a jump on the cleaning out.

You got a steal on that chair. I can not believe it was only $2!

I have a crocheted doily that looks nearly identical to the one on your pillow. My mother made it years ago. Makes me wonder if it was ever destined to be a pillow itself.

Oh my gosh you lucky ducky!! BTW you're almost my neighbor! No wonder we have the same boudoir lamp! *winks* And gosh durn it you beat me to some great finds! Did you know that our craigslist has that same chair (or nearly identical) for $100?? So what a score! I'm turning green with envy! (a nice evergreen color lol!) Vanna
