Last Friday Mom and I set out to do some treasure hunting at the local yard sales listed in the newspapers. After 36 miles and lots of digging, we found some very interesting items. Among them were……
Iris and Herringbone depression glass bowls….
Three awesome vintage frames…….
A wrought iron tabletop candelabra, a wire-top fruit jar and a sweet Baltimore Pear creamer….
Two tiny toy soldier figurines riding their toy horses (made in Japan)…..
AND Bikin’ Betty (Boop)…..she and her bike are salt and pepper shakers.
Friday was so successful that we were excited to shop the Saturday yard sales. After 28 miles and lots of digging, we came home with….......
Zip, zero, zilch, …….Not one single thing!
But I’m a “glass half-full” kinda girl. I was disappointed, but grateful for the time spent with Mom and the beautiful fall scenery we enjoyed along the way!
I’m also thankful that I had time to package all the loose recipes that I’ve collected this year. I was able to assemble a dozen grab bags of potential deliciousness. Drop by Southern Antiques, if you’re in the area, to see them and all the other vintage goodies!
