Yesterday there was a city wide yard sale that we hit up (with both kids in tow), and I bought a surprising amount of stuff. (This isn't even all of it, lol.) (And we are not going to mention the odd things in the photos anymore, right? We are all, ahem *I'm*, going to accept that I have only 12 seconds in any given day to take these photos.)
I could NOT leave this behind. It is beautiful. It's an antique baby bed (that someone shortened at some point.)
It's big though! As big as the office settee. And I don't know what to do with it! I bargained the price down though and there was no way I was leaving it behind.
Now, help me figure out what to do with it? It's way too big for a doll bed.
A beautiful vintage hat. That I totally would have worn on the royal wedding day. (Did you see those hats?)
A perfectly pink piece of pottery.
An opalescent piece of milk glass.
Two ball jars that will soon be bathroom soap dispensers.
A plate for the plate wall.
A pair of shelf brackets for my laundry room shelf (once I get them painted pink).
A sweet mirror for the hallway, if you can look beyond all the stuff in the kitchen and see the details at the top and bottom.
And what I first thought was a big tablecloth and a matching runner (below), but are really an old bed cover (see those cut outs on the end for the bedframe?)...
and the matching "runner" which is really a cover for the pillows.
They will be used on tables for me though.
They both have sweet pink roses embroidered on them and lovely scalloped edges...
and their old laundry marks too.
