Spring Garage Sales...

Last week
was amazing,
gorgeous glorious spring days...
 
I worked in the garden
till I dropped...
 
on Thursday.
it clouded over,
and I needed a break....
 

I found a single garage sale
that held promise...
 
 
I think it's almost as exciting
 to visit the first garage sales of spring,
 as it is to see the first blooms in the garden...
almost....
 
 
I found this trio
of pretty dishes...
 
the platter is giant!
 
 
swags of roses along it's edges,
and a big chip,
ouch!
 

an ouchless price!
 
we have agreed to overlook each others flaws :-)

 
 
a pretty new teapot,
five dollars...
 


 I wish I'd shown her mark,
before I arranged the roses...
 
she is Spanish Ironstone...
 
 
a beautiful rose design
and embossed leaves on the rim...
 
 
a pretty pink teacup to add to my collection,
eight dollars...
 
 
bottoms up...
 
 
and
bottoms up...
 
 
tomorrow if we don't get rained out,
I am excited to take you on a garden tour...
 
today I am joining...
 
and
 
Thanks for sipping with me today....

Hi Bellla
You always manage to find exquisite pieces at the garage sales in your area. The teapot is a pretty vessel to hold roses.

Wow you found some great treasures. I went to a garage sale Saturday the prices were way to HIGH. You know how I love roses and I would have grabbed that in a hot second.

I know how you feel after working in the garden. I'm down for a couple
days after.
Have a wonderful week - Happy Gardening
Mary

I'm so glad you overlooked that chip- the pieces are lovely! Quiet a score and a good omen for Spring/Summer yard sales for you maybe!

Thanks for sharing with us, and it's always great to see creative minds at work. :)
