Many Lovely Finds!

I posted earlier that I was going to a garage sale of “epic proportions” (https://lovethosehandsathome.wordpress.com/2013/08/16/garage-sale-of-epic-proportions/). As it turned out, I guess it depends on your definition of epic. My dictionary says it can mean “of unusually great size,” and that it was. But the other definition is “majestic, impressively great” . . . not exactly.

BUT the day was quite a success from a “hands at home” point of view! I saw many handmade crocheted blankets or afghans and quite a lot of hand-stitched linens. Think how long someone worked on these things!

This is HUGE and so pretty in pinks and white.

Beautiful Arts & Crafts embroidery but, sadly, this has holes in it.

Can you see why I find it so hard to pass these items up, when I see them?

    • As they say, you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find the prince. I go to MANY sales and look at so much junk but the treasures do turn up. I also found a pair of mother of pearl opera glasses!
