What can you get for $2

Happy Friday!

I went for my walk this morning, and hit a garage sale along the way.
I got this pretty cut glass pedestal compote for $2. Pretty good, I thought. The lady told me it was from the 1800's. It looks really old, but who knows? I don't care, because I like it.
Just set it here for the picture. I have to, of course move everything I own around to find the perfect spot.
Another view.

My last post, I showed you my pretty dream banner that I had purchased from Wren Cottage.
Some of you asked where I was going to put it. Here, above my front door. I thought it was a nice word to think about, as you leave the house.

I hope you are all planning a great weekend!!
The weather is gorgeous and Springlike here. (Sorry snow people)

Whatever you plan to do, have fun!!!

"snow people" LOL! - that would be me today! It's snowing in March in Georgia and snowing like a blizzard snow. At least it's not sticking to the streets. Very pretty find for $2! In garage sale season we also have ones that start on Friday.

Hi Rosemary, pretty compote. I'm with you, if I like it I buy it and if it's olds that a bonus.
I love your dream banner, I think I'll pop over to Wren Cottage and see her things.
Tomorrow I'm going to the
2nd Sunday Peddler's Faire, I'm looking for vintage Easter. Do you have weekend plans? Hugs, Linda

Hi, rosemary, that's a nice compote you found. I'm sure you'll put it to good use.

Yep, we got a dusting of snow today too! Way too cold, but I'm sure it will change soon.

Have a good one!

Southern Heart said...

Rosemary, that is a wonderful find! You always find the best treasures, and it's fun to see them.

It snowed 4" here, but will be Spring-y again by mid-week (thank goodness).
