I scored big time!

This past weekend, before all the moving going on, I decided I had to get some retail therapy going. I found a local garage sale and for $3, seriously, $3 I got the following:

I’m pretty sure that bowl on the right is milk glass right? If anyone can tell me, I would be grateful. Next a crystal decanter. It has the sticker and it says its crystal, made in France. Then this great wooden box with coasters and finally a white teapot.

I also got 2 pairs of curtain panels:

See how well they match my new floor? ( that will be in another post)

 

I’m pretty excited and just wanted to share =)

  3. Why does retail therapy make us feel so good? Why does cheap retail therapy feel even better?
    It's temporary, but worth it! :)

  11. So we are calling it retail therapy now? OK, I needed another excuse to go to yard sales! I go for my sanity because I would go crazy if I didn't shop!
