Yard Sale and Antique Show Treasures

It's that time of year again when the yard sales start to fizzle out.  There will always be a few here and there, but a lot of folks are packing it in for the season.  What's a girl to do?  Take a chance and check out a couple of decent sounding sales.  Last weekend, before heading off to the craft show where I was selling, I found some purchase worthy treasures.....

I liked the frame on that paint-by-number, and will probably turn that empty wood tray into a chalk board.  I just had to have these wonderful old Mark Twain books even though five volumes were missing.  Twenty volumes for $1.00 each. 

M is for Mark Twain

What else is a girl to do? She needs to remember that there are still some great monthly antique shows in the area.......

I'm always on the hunt for keys, keys, and more keys.

All this bling came from about ten different dealers at the Sacramento Antique Faire.  I don't care how I find it, as long as I find it.

I have plans for these beauties.  I'll probably use most of it for repurposed jewelry and the rest will be used for decorating more abalone shells.

My last batch of shells all found new homes, so I put these together last week.  Now I'll have to get busy with all the goodies I just found.
