Treasure Hunting....

Yesterday I shared our road side pick up from Easter and a little peek at a yard sale finds from Saturday. I am so excited today to participate in Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesday and share the rest of our treasures!

The girls got up early with me and we were out the door by 6:30 am. We stopped first a McDonalds for some hot coffee and hash browns and then we were on our way! A nice neighborhood development was having a yard sale so that was first on our list. The girls were a little disappointed because there were mostly baby items. No worry we found some more yard sales in town and found a few items. It wasn't our best day, but still a fun day.
We decided that you don't always find your treasures on your first day of your treasure hunt! Maybe their treasures are waiting to be found next week! Plus I let them keep their $5.00, so all is well!

I bought this vase and glass frog from a sweet gentleman. He told me all about it's history and his wife liked to put daisy's in it. I love daisy's. He said the pattern is called the Star of David.  Now, I know he so could have just used his best sales pitch on me, but I believed him .  Sold to the girl with her 2 daughters on a cold Saturday! I just love the glass frog! First time I saw a frog in glass. Have you seen this before?

This metal holder was 50 cents! I had the glass votives at home!

Added the votives, some water and white roses....

This was our favorite find....
4 prints for $1.00
Maddie is my artist and she loved them as much as I did

The best part is when you turn the print over it gives all the details about each artist...

This is my favorite...
The Plains of Heaven painted by John Martin

We framed them and Maddie hung the Mona Lisa in her room.
I just love that she loves and has an appreciation for art.

The other 3 pictures are hanging in the Front Room....

We also got that cute white milk glass dish for $2.00 and the cookbook for 50 cents!

We'll try again this Saturday for another treasure hunt and see what we find!
Thanks for joining us today!

Don't forget to visit Linda at Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday!

I love your vase/frog. I haven't seen that shape before, but I have a low round bowl with the frog on top. It's fun to fill it with very small daisies from the yard-enjoy!

What excellent treasures! I love the glass frog, I don't recall ever seeing anything like this before, but I'll have to keep my eye out for one in my area! I love to yard sale shop. I think you scored big on the art prints.
