Yard Sales {shop locally!}

My friend Deloris picked me up early this morning and we hit the yard sales. It was a beautiful morning to be outside. For a grand total of $12.50, here's what I found...
Cameo earrings....will they turn into something else?

A pair of silver candlesticks, an old oil lamp, a plant mister, a small terrarium jar that matches the two I purchased last month, a giant heavy hurricane (complete with pillar candle and 'vase fillers', a muffin tin, a very tarnished silver casserole, small pink candles, and an American flag to replace the one stolen from my front porch last year. Not too bad--especially since I have a use for all of it.
The oil lamp is for the sunporch...and for the mantel next winter. They always come in handy during power outages. I'm going to try and polish the casserole---and plant sedum in it. It may actually turn into a fairy garden.
We had so much fun! Now we're planning a trip to the Nashville Flea Market.

Girl, you got some good bargains. I am going to make sure I have some kerosene lanterns before next winter too! I got to clean house, step mom is coming this afternoon. Wish I was thrifting with you!
