Under the Sea Weekend Finds

I wasn't too enthusiastic about the few yard sales on my list for Saturday morning, but you never know unless you try, right?  My first stop was completely unexpected as I drove by several people setting up tables in an empty parking lot.  I quickly weeded through a few tables of toys, dusty dried flowers, and old clothes.  Then I spotted these....

An entire basket of them just waiting for a new home.  Two of the coral pieces are 11-12" wide, heavy, and very fragile.

An instant collection.

I didn't notice this tiny starfish until I got home.

A sea horse was clinging to the same piece of coral.

 This gorgeous Trumpet Triton is 13" long.

Look what was clinging to another big piece of coral.  No, not really, but they sure look good together.  I found the vintage brooches at the next sale along with the easel in the last picture.

The cast iron basket is from the same parking lot sale.  It's not old, but how could I resist for 25 cents; plastic flowers and all.  The tray, creamer, and aluminum pitcher were from another sale.

My last find of the day was this 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" signed oil painting.  I love the pretty winter scene and beautiful colors, but not the blond frame.  I think these two will look great together after a paint job.
