Earl and I took in a couple garage sales this afternoon. It was such a lovely day, so we jumped in the car and headed out. After hitting the sales that we were looking for, we followed an Estate sale sign down a long drive and found this. A gosh darn real "Estate"! This little cottage was on a sparkling lake, the gardens were full of sculpture. It was just plain amazing. If any of you live in a house like this please excuse my farmgirl awe of this kind of living. There were massive spiral staircases inside, an infinity pool out by the lake and they were serving appetizers for pity sake. At an estate sale. This was my first appetizer/estate sale.
I live a sheltered life.
Of course we went in.
I only got a couple photos because one of the estate sale guys started giving me the stink eye.
I was dying for the $500 crystal bowl on the $2500 table.
I was thinking this $6500 bone and ivory chinese warrior would make a lovely holder of towels in my bath, What think you? Hmmm, on the other hand I wouldn't want that grumpy face staring at me as I stepped out of the shower. It might give me a complex. And what exactly is he doing to his beard?
After we left, we headed for our kind of shopping. Salvation Army, where I found a light blue sweater set for $1 and a pretty green linen blouse for $5. Earl got 4 shirts for $1 each. I looked to see if they had any Chinese soldier statues but they must have sold the last one before I got there.
