Last weekend was the May 2-4 long weekend here in Canada… and we call it that no matter what date the holiday Monday (Victoria Day) falls on because we’re crazy like that.
I think it has something to do with a two-four and camping, but we are sooo not campers… so what do we do? We go garage saling.
May 2-4 is usually fabulous for garage sales… and this year was no exception. After going out for breakfast (one of my favourite things to do) John and I hit up quite a few sales and found some great stuff.
I was pickin’… and so was John.
He found me this fabulous vintage set of 8 silver goblets in a plastic bag that I didn’t even see.
(I see wind chimes.)
Just look at that patina!!!
To polish or not to polish… that is the question.
How long does it take to create such natural gorgeousness?
I believe in aging naturally and gracefully… like this silver basket vase.
The details on this set of silver candelabra are quite lovely…. and they’re heavy as sin.
And I was a grinnin’ like the happy fool that I am when I found all this silverware.
(I see more wind chimes.)
I kinda have a thing for vintage kitchen items.
I feel like I need to rescue them, and help them blossom into something fabulous… hopefully.
(I see wind chimes everywhere.)
Like my favourite pink tulips that are in full bloom.
And I’m just a grinnin’ all over the place.
I actually found a few more things, but it was getting late last night and I had to cut this post short. Sometimes I need to know when to say when.
Thanks so much for reading.
What has you grinnin’ these days?
