Goodies from yard sales

I did OK at yard sales this weekend.  Will be adding all you see here to my booth this week.  I have got to redo the entire booth and put that pink dresser in a more prominent spot.

Here's some of what I found:
This mirrored dresser tray was a jewel in all the dust of an estate sale this weekend.  The pink roses are in perfect shape and so is the mirror.  I just had to get a rubber cover for one of the feet on the bottom.  I love the charm bracelets, soft green beads and old pin cushion.  That pin cushion is filled with emery so that when you stick the pins or needles in, the emery sand/dust sharpens the tips.
I love this silver pitcher.  It has a small boo-boo on the bottom, but that just gives it character and makes it even more shabby chic.
Found a lot of buttons, too.  A large bag of white and off white buttons as well as some red and pink.  Lots of mother of pearl buttons in this lot.  The bag of dark buttons are actually red, white and blue -- must have turned the bag over.

Hi Judy,
Wow you found some great treasures. Love the little pitcher. I have painted a few of those. Such a cute size. Love the buttons. Everything is wonderful.

So sorry to read you got stung by that scorpian. I am here in Texas. We have them too, but I have never seen one in my Dallas area. You were lucky not to be allergic.

Have a great week.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
