Second Visit to Estate Sale, and Good Will Shopping

Last Saturday morning, I went back to the estate sale where I found the Homer Laughlin dishes.  They had slashed the prices in half for small items, and 25% off of large items.  They had really cleared out a lot of things after my first visit on Friday. There were still furniture pieces, and larger items, but the smaller items had really been picked over.  I found three more items that I bought.

The white dish is Homer Laughlin, the one with the pink border isn't marked. I added the plate and small bowl to other items for vignettes in the drop front desk.

 An old sewing machine drawer that I painted and distressed holds the plate, a flower frog, and a good will small glass tray.

I dug through my stash and placed the pink rimmed bowl, a birds nest inside this white wood box I found at Home Goods.

I added the milk glass piece to my growing collection in the china cabinet.

After leaving the estate sale, I decided to stop at Good Will.  I bought this shower curtain, and used it to change up the guest bath.

I've been adding blue to my decor, and this brought some into the guest bath.  I use lots of birds too, and was pleased to see the curtain had birds on it.  The way it was folded, I could not see them until I got it home and opened the package.

I shopped the house and changed the accessories to add more blue.

A week later, I found this picture at GW that works perfectly in here. The frame is a crackled, bluish-green, and of course a sweet bird is shown in the picture.

Bath towels are kept in an old egg basket.

As you all know, it's hard to photograph a small area.

The picture reflected above was switched out to the bird picture above.
