In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Garage Sale Treasures!

Yesterday I went to some garage sales. I've only been three or four times all summer and I was missing it. I thought I'd share with you some of my treasures.

I paid $1.00 for this. I saw them ON SALE at a local store for $21.00! Ridiculous. It's a rubberish material. I'd take it out on the boat with me if I had a boat to take it out on! You know...because my stuff inside wouldn't get wet.

This vintage sheet. Love. I will use it for material rather than a sheet.

Vintage tablecloths

Santa cookie molds. I was just saying the other day how I used to do a lot more baking. I especially loved to bake at Holiday time. I'd give baked gifts to all of our neighbors. I miss it. And I used to make shortbread cookies from molds similar to these.

This apron

And Christmas goodies.....

This is a music box but I can't tell what song it plays.

One person teapot

The cup is on the bottom of the pot.

And this mess.....well it was a baggie full of jewelry. It took me awhile to decide if I wanted it,

but I liked these big bauble bracelets.

And then I started untangling

the knotted up mess...

I found some earrings to match the bracelets

I found earrings to match these necklaces


Remember the brand of jewelry called 1928. Somewhat victorian looking. I must admit, I have a bit of it. Well that's what these three necklaces and two pair of earrings are, 1928. I don't know if they still make it or not.

More earrings, not 1928!

Christmas bracelet...

Perhaps a New Years Eve necklace and earrings.

And now, I have spilled a glass of tea on my notebook and I must go....{sigh}

  5. You got some great stuff! They used to sell that 1928 jewelry at the better department stores, not sure if the line is still around or not. I have not been to many garage sells either this year but just stopped in a couple last weekend and got the grand daughters a very nice scholastic dictionary (very large) for 25 cents, a like new canner for 4.00 and a book for me for 50 cents. Have a great Holiday!
