Friday morning finds

I found a really neat old dress form this morning, The violin is a very old one and I will have to research it a bit to find out its value
These dominoes are the old ones with the brass brad in the center
some very old tiny books and compacts

We went out for a brief garage sale drive this morning. I didn't want to be gone long as I am putting in a garden today. Not a big deal except for the fact that we had to rototill an area and then haul good dirt way into the back yard. Any way I actually found a few fun things even in a very short amount of time.

Love you finds this week!! I came across an old violin at an estate sale today missing the cords. I don't have a clue the value either. I have a pic of it on my blog today, if you find the value of yours let me know, Tootles, janna

Wow, I looked in the paper for garage/estate sales and it looked pretty grim...nothing I wanted to pursue.
Good for you, especially the dress it!

You were out just long enough to find some great things. I wanted to comment on your awesome garden goods. And that Jackson is a lucky dog. Beautiful too.

Great finds! That doll in your header still makes me smile every time I see her:)
Have a great weekend!

Susan S. said... found some really cool things. I particularly love the dress form and the violin. I have a similar violin and case from my father. I'm curious as to how much it's worth but I would NEVER part with it.

Happy Weekend!

Glad you found some things.
I love the 'hunt'.

Could you please email me your tax/bookkeeping persons name?
I'm still trying to figure that whole mess out!!! Taking too much time the way i was told to do it.

I appreciate it and hope your weekend goes well.
Maybe I'll see you out and about.
