Saturday Garage Sales

Heather and I, along with Heather's mom-in-law, chose a beautiful day to go garage saling. We really raked it in! I bought the least, but I still found a lot of goodies.

Here's my haul, with some photos:
11" tall aqua green tin pitcher, $2. This reminds me of the one Ikea sells, which is based on an antique design.
A green vintage apron with Ruth Ellen embroidered on the pocket, 50c (Ruth Ellen was The Professor's grandmother's name)
5-pc ceramic mixing bowl set, $212-speed Oster blender with glass jar, $6
Black and Decker iron, $1
10 white hangers, $1 (I like the type without the reinforcement piece on the bottom bar; it gives more space for my folded tablecloths)
Very Hungry Caterpillar, 50c
16 stainless steel napkin rings, $22 Pyrex refrigerator dishes with lids, $1
Fiskars 12" paper trimmer with travel case, $8
2 clear stamping blocks, 50c
50"x64" embroidered white tablecloth, 50c
57"x79" vintage barkcloth tablecloth, 50c
The mixing bowls, blender, and iron are for David. He asked me to look for things he'll need in his future apartment, once he graduates. Very slowly, I've found some useful things for him.

The kids' book is for church; the rest of the stuff is for me.

The embroidered tablecloth is stained and will need a long soak in an Oxi-clean bath. After that, I'm sure it will be white.

Lovely items! When we downsize, you all can have FREE items.

Hope the professor is recovering. You can get shots for pneumonia when you are over a certain age.
