Week End Treasure Hunt

Welcome to this weeks treasure hunt.  
  Not too many yard sales this week end......I guess lots of families are busy getting ready to send the kids back to school soon.      I did notice plenty of gently worn school clothes at the yard sales,  gotta make room for the new school clothes!

I was so excited when I spotted a box of dishes at a local church barn sale.     The box was kind of hidden under a the back.....easy to be overlooked.     It contained some Desert Rose coffee cups to add to my collection.....

The box also had 4 vintage bowls and a couple of saucers.......$5 for the whole box.

I need another Victorian cookie jar like I need a hole in the!   But come on.....who could pass up this beauty!


I bought these corn holders at the same place that I found the Victorian house cookie jar.

I have a clear glass set......and a yellow set.....but loved the white!

Made in Portugal ......$5 for the set.

I don't think Root makes the 18 inch taper anymore......

So   I was glad to find a set of 2....never used .....for $2

Cute pink and yellow candle holder.....

You can't give away Easter this time of year.......

I was able to pick up 3 bunnies and 3 pink bottle brush trees......$1.50 for all.

I think these Jester bear head Christmas ornaments will look great on a Victorian themed tree......

How cute are their little hats and collars......

We went to a few sales on Friday and only 2 on Saturday.   We were in a hurry to head over to the lake and watch our daughter's family take turns being drug behind the jet ski on an big  inner tube.     A few of them even got up on the Wake!

I couldn't resist taking a few snapshots of the area around the lake......

The contrast of the dry southwest land and the big lake is amazing!   Sorry I didn't get any photos of the lake.....was too busy watching the kids!
