Garage Sale Goodies

Spring has finally sprung, if you can catch it on the right day.  The other days still have snow.  The official arrival of our warmer weather is a day full of garage sales.  WooHoo.  Happy dance happening.  My neighbor and I took off toward the big city at 7 a.m. and were rewarded for our early a.m. jaunt. 
The Sweet One got a couple of items to play with around here. 

I scored on these 2 items for.........(imagine a loooonnng commercial break here, cause that's how the tv shows do it!).......ok, recap and the grand total was...$5.00.  Yeppers.  Awesome AND in mint condition for both of them!!
Then we hit a sale with nothin special, but then I spied a couple of sexy legs hiding under the sheets.  haha, NOW you're really interested?  Gals, NEVER ever hesitate to ask if something is for sale!! 
I asked, they sold, it's mine.....

I already had it moved into my closet for extra storage before I remembered to take this pic.  The paint job not so good, but the general condition is terrific for this old dresser and you get a glimpse of the sexy legs I was spying under the sheet that was covering this beauty.
OK, the going price was $20.  Yippee for me!

and lastly I scored a couple of silver trays and spoons.  I can't pass up the silver, must be a magpie at heart.  The cutie pie little purse will hold lots of smalls for the Sweet One.
There was also a brass tray and a wooden lazy susan thingy that I have already put to work in the sweat shop/crafting space.  I'll snag a pic of those when there is better light.
Sigh, alas, I spy happy days ahead with more sales on the horizon and wildflowers in the fields.

Looks like you got lots of great stuff! That dresser was the perfect find. I know I ALWAYS need more storage space (we don't even have closets over here ). Have a great day! :) Tammy
