A few finishes & fun for $5

"Blessed Be"

"Strawberry Queen"

When I visited the cemetery the other day, I came upon an estate sale in an old Chicago Bungalow. I found these great little treasures there:I love the little granite ware berry pail and plan to use it for picking raspberries this year ~ for the first time ever my bushes are loaded with flowers and the beginnings of tiny berries. I'm not sure if the little pitcher/creamer is ironstone, but I just love it. Right now it is perfect with one large peony in it. Can you believe I bought all these goodies for $5? I was thrilled!

I also stopped at a little antique flea market in the center of town and found this at a booth:
The sweet lady there said that they were from her mother's sewing basket.
Another great deal at $5!

Wishing you a lovely day filled with finishes and finds :)

Blessings, Patti
