Estate Sale Treasures

Yesterday we took a break from all the painting we've been doing and drove to Amarillo, Tx for the day.  It's about a 100 miles from here.  On the way to Amarillo, we took a little detour to Tulia, Tx for an estate sale that I had seen in the newspaper.... It was a big sale with lots of vintage goodies!

 I got this aqua leaf table cloth for $3 and the doilies were .25 each.
These dishes are just like some my grandma had so I couldn't pass them up!  They were $15 less 25%...that's right, everything was 25% off! 

This pink and aqua table cloth was in excellent condition...$3, !!!  

Wooden pant hangers..all for .75.  This aqua velvet pillow cover was $1
Pretty pastel thread....25 each

This gorgeous picture frame was $3....less 25%!  I bought that hat for $1 and will decorate it for spring.   Big vintage books were $1 each.

                                                             Isn't she a beauty?


We really enjoyed our little trip to Amarillo..had a beautiful relaxing drive, a yummy lunch and found some great stuff!    Well.........back to painting today!
