Hot Days & Cool Finds!!

Let's just say the weather here in Georgia is down right scorching HOT! No relief in sight! The only thing to take your mind off the heat is finding some cool stuff! The estate sales and yard sales have picked up tremendously!! Why couldn't they be better in the fall and winter?? One of my finds is this great antique silver tray, displayed behind some seltzer bottles... I have more than enough trays, but for 5.00 I love it!

A few small trophy's added to my collection displayed across the mantel. I have a passion for antique silver trophy's. I don't think I will ever get tired of them!

Most things I have found lately has been going to my booth. I try not to keep a lot of stuff, like I have in the past! I have been meaning to open an Etsy shop too, maybe soon, we shall see.

One of my favorite finds is this awesome antique frame found for only 2.00 I added the old wedding photo. Isn't the detail on the frame just wonderful? It has urns with flowers on each side! I have never seen another one like it! I love collecting antique frames! How about you?

For the past 2 weekends I decided not to go to any yard sales. We have been doing a lot of remodeling, painting, downsizing, etc..but on the way home from taking things to my booth, I thought why not stop at this one estate sale and see what is left! I am so glad I did! I bought this victorian mesh little purse for 35.00 She was asking 65.00! I have started a collection of antique purses and these are my favorites! I hope you enjoyed the pictures! Have a wonderful weekend!
