This was a good weekend for me. I first picked up this white cast iron rabbit at a new store I had been wanting to go to but couldn't until now. I really love his face and how he looks rustic. He probably would look great in a garden, but for now he resides in my living room.
I have to tell you about this purchase. My SIL, who doesn't get as excited as I do about decorating or treasure hunting, told me about a yard sale / estate sale she thought I might be interested in. It was going to be on Saturday & Sunday. After she gave me the address, I decided to drive by to see if by chance anything was being set out, or if I could see anything I might be interested in. Being as it was Friday, I knew they would be setting up. Well, there were a few cars in the driveway and I couldn't see anything, it all looked to be in the garage. So, being the true hunter...errrr...shopper that I am, I told my son Tyler that I was going to stop and pretend I thought they were having the sale then. With my best innocent face and "Oh, I thought it was today!!!" I asked if they would mind if I just looked and could they tell me what they would be having for sale on Saturday. The lady was kind enough to list the bigger items as I could see the others. And when she mentioned an antique dresser I asked if I could see it. After I was able to look at it (and no it is not an antique but a nice vintage - 1930's) I asked what price. Imagine my delight when she said $35. I said I would take it, paid her......she let me take it right then! She's pretty dusty, but in great shape and after a new coat of paint, rose appliques and some new knobs, she will be a beauty! As they say....the early bird gets the worm LOL!
I went back to the same sale the next day and picked up these new cookbooks. They are hardbacks and printed in 2005- 2007, for $1 each.
Also at the same sale I bought these vintage aprons. They were marked $2 each, but I got them all for $5. I LOVE the sheer white one.

Same sale.....I got this cover dish that I will use as a cloche and fill with something. Not sure what yet. This was brand new in the box for $2.
And finally at this sale I bought the blue covered jar $2, glass dome covered butter dish $1, glass frog $1 and small strainer $1.
This bottle buoy I picked up at a different yard sale for 50 cents. I bought it for my friend's sister who is decorating her house in beach cottage decor. I get excited when I find something unique. I loved it because I have never seen a buoy like this. Hope she does too.
