Saturday Treasures

Last weekend was a very good weekend for estate and yard sales.
I though you might enjoy seeing a few
of my favorite picks.
 
I've always been enamored with
vintage vessels of all types
 and these two lovelies were a steal
at $1 each.
 
I had more altered dolls in mind when I came across
these gorgeous silver salt and pepper shakers
I don't know if the watch still works
but I don't plan on wearing it.
Disassembled it will provide several
ornate findings to use in mixed media pieces.
The seller requested 10 cents for it!
 
I collect many things
and one of my oldest and favorite collections is
music boxes.
 I don't believe this one is very old
but it's very pretty.
 
I have a few of this type already
and they're so fun.
They were used to hold ladies face powder.
 
An enjoyable Saturday
with such wonderful finds...
I'm off to a block sale this morning.
Wish me luck
&
happy hunting to you!
