I love to go to Estate Sales. I enjoy looking for treasures, but I also love looking into old houses and admiring the workmanship and character of older buildings. Lately there haven't been very many in my town. I guess that this is a good thing :) But I miss them. The past few weeks there have been a few and I have really enjoyed the chance to go.
I found this sweet little strawberry botanical framed print that I thought was so appropriate for me right now :) And this sweet little graniteware pitcher.
At another estate sale I found all of these treasures for 25 cents!
Who knew you could have so much fun for only a quarter!
And look at these treasures from another sale - all for $10!
I hope that I don't have to wait too long for another estate sale...

I'm a little nervous about finishing it as a standing pinkeep, but I do want to give it a try.
If anyone has finished this piece and has any pointers, I'd love to hear from you!
