Yard Sale Therapy

I spent most of last week down and out with an awful cold that came out of nowhere.  It didn't stop me completely, but it sure did shift my creative plans for the week into low gear.  "Go to two yard sales and call me in the morning."  Great advise, but it didn't come from my doctor.  It came from that little voice inside my head that was trying to convince me to self medicate by checking out two very promising looking yard sales on Friday.  It worked, it really worked!

Silver anything speaks to me and it's usually the first thing I notice when I get to a sale.  I love mismatched flatware (it's not all picture here), and I didn't care that the pot was missing its lid because it will probably be used as a vase. The vintage brush was found sitting inside the pot, so of course it also had to come home with me.

I'll probably be painting the ornate brass mirror stand and putting something other than a mirror inside.

It's always a happy day when I find old jewelry, especially jewelry with rhinestones.  
I couldn't leave that bracelet behind.  Bunco anyone? 

These rosaries were also calling my name.  Three of them are broken, but I love them anyway.

Group hug.  All of these (except the souvenir spoon over on the left) will be getting flattened and stamped.  You can click here to see my tutorial on stamping silverware.
I'm happy to say that I'm feeling much better now and ready to make up for lost time.
