Auction treasures

These are a few of the treasures I found at the auction. There were so many pictures that I thought I would wait until tomorrow to show you the rest. I thought you might be getting tired of all the pictures of the building projects so here we go.

I waited almost all day long for this box of pillowcases. They had the most beautiful handwork on them. This one has some blue and pink embroidery on it and I thought of my sister who is making one of her bedrooms a country cottage style. Hope she likes them.

I know, I know, these are jello molds but they were in the box of stuff I bought and I thought they would make great candle holders. Maybe spray them with adhesive and sprinkle some clear glitter and hopefully I will have a couple of fabulous candle holders.....

I thought I would set these little crockery bowls around the living room and bathroom with potpourri inside. Two of them were the same and one has a few flecks of off white on the side. There is a slight crack in the side of one...but I love old vintage items so to me it just means someone used it and there is a story to go along with it.

I went to a local auction this saturday and I found some treasures. The elderly couple that had lived here pasted away last year and so the family was getting rid of the unwanted items. Most of their stuff really did not bring much money. I was happy with my finds. This crockery jug was just so cute that I knew I wanted it for my kitchen. It was the most expensive item I purchased at $12. I washed it up and put it in the corner of my coutertop for now.
Until tomorrow, be blessed

Good morning Dianntha, your building is great! I love the color and as for landscaping I know you will having it looking lovely...but I do think a water feature would be extra special. When I saw your sunflower I thought Fall too. I just talked to my SIL in Tex. and we are both looking forward to a change.

Love your little brown jug and your sister is sure to enjoy the pillow cases, pretty, pretty.. Have a happy day. Hugs, Linda
