Thrifty Purchases

Yard Sale season in the Maritimes is slowly starting up. There were just a few small ones on Saturday, but here are the goodies I found.

4 teacups and saucers for 50 cents each -- perfect for early morning tea on the deck this summer!

A pretty vintage enamel tray for 50 cents --that will hold the breakfast fruit.

A carnival glass dish for $1 -- for the fresh rolls or scones!
(I make wonderful scones, if I do say so myself; you should try my Maple Pecan!)

A pretty ceramic tile to use as a trivet for the teapot, and a little clay bird to keep me company.

And this lovely necklace, bracelet and stud earrings in the little gauze bag -- all for just $1!

Because while enjoying breakfast on the deck on a lazy, hazy Saturday in August, One should always be "be-jewelled", have your make-up on, your hair coiffed, and be wearing your silk mules and prettiest penoir set!
N'est pas, mes amis?

I'm lucky if my face is washed and there's no spaghetti stains on the nightie!

I used to love going to yard sales when I lived in Antigonish.

I'll check stuff out here if I happen upon one.

What wonderful finds!!! And looking for the finds is half the fun, in my opinion.

I love your sale goodies. You really did get some spectacular buys there.

Oh I loved it all! How beautiful! I used to love going to the yard sales, it'll have to be something that I take up doing again! Thanks for sharing your great finds!

I love yard sales! I would have totally bought those first three items myself. You got some great deals.

I have a vintage enamel bowl exactly the same pattern as your tray.
