Found Treasures

 The weather around here has finally cooled down and took advantage of it by stopping by 2 garage sales last Friday!
I found these cute little frames for a dollar each.  The tiny frame was only 25 cents.
 This very pretty vintage framed doily was only $1.00!
 Artichoke was $2.00.
 This very heavy hanging bird bath was $5.00.  I probably would have gotten less for it if I had noticed that one side of the handle was broken; but I still love it!
 Hardcover book for $1.00.  I have a very shady backyard.
 Shabby little birdie for $1.00 and...
also in perfect condition crochet doily for...yup...$1.00!
 I also found this gorgeous platter for $2.00!
On the back of the platter it states Limoges USA.  I thought Limoges was strictly French...I'll have to do a little research.

I can't wait to see what I find this weekend!!!
