At Last ~ My Garage Sale And New Findings

Hello my dear friends,

I can't believe I did or rather didn't do this!! At last I had my garage sale on Saturday and ... I was so busy I didn't take a single picture to share with you!!! The only thing I can tell you is that it went very well and it was an interesting experience this time and  I was happy to pack the leftovers back into my garage after sitting in the hot sun for hours. Hopefully the next time I will be doing something like this I will remember to take photos!

But I didn't forget to take pictures of my latest findings from the past 2 weeks that I would like to share with you today.

These pearls are the most beautiful color of  pale tan.

Two more different coffin studs - this time flowers.

A few old spoons, maybe for more new pincushions - I haven't made any in a while!!

An old measuring stick!
 I have been looking for one of these for a while now and the price was great!!

A few old crystals from a vintage chandelier and an old draw knob.
 (this one is for a project I already have in mind)

And last but not least ...

this find is my daughter Caylagh's - lucky girl, she saw it first!

It is an antique miniature book with words from the bible for every single day of the year!!! It is only 2 by 2 1/2 inches in size! It is so beautiful and I have never seen one of these before - what a find!!

And I am ending this post with today's words for you my dear friends.

"I am with thee to save thee."
-Jer. 15.20

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.

  4. I'm glad that your garage sale went well. I love going to garage sales. You can find lots of good stuff if you only look carefully. I often end up buying novels, mostly detective stories. The last time I went to a garage sale I got 5 books for $4. It's a cool bargain!
