{palpitations}

this past week-end was incredible for garage sale treasures...that's all i can say. i never read the ads or plot out a route - i just get in my vehicle and look for signs. the antiques that i found this time are unbelievable; in fact i feel too guilty to share the prices on these! i'll just tell you that i spent less than fifty dollars on everything you see below. oh my goodness. can you say heart palpitations and a cold sweat?

this very old bird cage on stand




beautiful cracked, worn ivory album

wonderful pages...





printer's drawer/tray





*sigh*





i honestly thought long and hard about whether i should post these photos - it almost seems impolite! please know that i share these just because i know you'll appreciate these incredible finds...and thanks:)

Great finds, as you know some days you just can't find anything good. I really like the bird cage and stand. I collect bird cage stands, I like to use them to hang chandeliers from them, or signs. Sandi

Smiles,

What a lucky girl you are. Your treasures are lovely.

Oh, how I wish I lived there. I live just outside London and the lovely items that you have just picked up are now very few and far between or very expensive. You are very lucky. I love the birdcage and the album.
