Cottage Style Party #42

I am thrilled that yard sale season is finally here!

My neighbor dug into his attic and pulled out items 

that haven't seen daylight in over 50 years!

These were things his former in-laws and 

previous home owners had left in the attic.

After years of promises he finally pulled some of them out for a yard sale!


I totally scored some wonderful cottage finds!

This floral glassware set in rack is soooo cottage chic!

How cute is this cow creamer!

I love this delicate porcelain plate that is numbered!

Melmac drink ware set with starbursts on the side - new in the box!

I love the graphics on this box of vintage tinsel...never used!

I'm not sure what this is, but I loved the turquoise painted wood handle!

It is marked Foley on the metal part, like the mill.

Any ideas? 

This is just a small part of what I found at his 2 day sale!

I also found a red plaid Scotts cooler, 3, yes, 3 picnic baskets, jello molds, 

pitchers and vases, plates and platters...so much wonderful stuff I have to dig through yet!

I love yard sale season!

Don't you?

Welcome to week #42 of the

  19. Loved your yard sale finds! I thought the blue pitcher and glass set looked like it may have been a wedding gift way back when. The cow creamer is adorable. I also loved the set of glasses in the holder. Perfect for serving guests on the patio.
