I had such a fun time Saturday morning with my younger son. We went to a town wide tag sale in the next town over. We got up early and headed out to the elementary school to pick up our map. You need to understand that we live a bit in the "boonies" and I don't know my way around this town. Often times my GPS can't even find a satellite! So, with a wish and a prayer, off we went. I tried to follow the map but I'm not too good with maps so we decided to just follow tag sale signs. When all was said and done, I think we hit about 15 sales. We both found a few goodies and enjoyed each others company. I'd say it was a successful trip.
This piece is in disparate need of a few coats of paint which is right up my alley. I love the shape of it and the pretty lines and carvings.


This was white and got a few coats of light pink. Just in time for our home and garden sale in a few weeks.


I LOVE vintage china and consider the day worthwhile when I find a few pretty pieces. I just listed them on my site.
Thanks for visiting ...
