Finds and Treasures (5)

Last Friday I took my dear little mother and my sweet out-of-state aunt to a few garage sales in our area. We had a good time but we didn't find much to bring home. I bought a couple of things for my toy and craft box . My grandchildren will enjoy them when they visit. Then I found the bargain of the day! A wonderful bowl. When my sweet aunt suggested that it would be a great fruit bowl that was all the encouragement I needed. Now it's on my counter. Waiting for the fresh fruit to arrive.

After a nice lunch out together we went to a sweet little antiques and collectibles shop in a nearby community. The shop is filled with treasures that would be perfect in my home. It didn't take long to find some wonderful pieces of yellow glass to add to my collection. I found this wonderful bowl that matches the cake plate I shared here.The first thing I saw when I walked through the door was this sweet little candleholder. Unusual. It will grace my table often.I found two Nancy Drew Mysteries to add to my collection. We had a lot of fun together, laughing and talking and savoring each moment. We will always treasure this time together. We are making the most of every moment and we are filling each one with memories. Wonderful memories. For each of us.


  1. You got some very pretty things, but I can see that what you really treasure is time with family and friends. That is what is so special about you, Adrienne, you treasure people:>)

  2. Morning Adrienne! Oh, what treasures you found. That little candlestick is just beautiful - never seen anything like it. How sweet of you to take your mom and aunt out for a fun day! Love that white bowl too! Thanks for popping in to 'cruise' with me today. Well, sure, hubby's boat counts!!
    Be a sweetie,

  11. Absolutely love the candle holder! You have good taste. What a wonderful find. I enjoy a good garage or yard sale too.

  12. Can't get enough of seeing treasures carried home and reloved by their new owners! Your purchases are beautiful (and I have never seen yellow glass like that...how beautiful!!) Glad for the update on your Mom - hope all is well and back to normal soon...the Lord is on the case!

    I like what you said about your out-of-state visitors seeing the area you live in through a fresh set of eyes...and how that blessed you - that's wonderful!

    Hope the rest of your week is blessed!

    Hugs and Blessings,
