Estate sale finds

This weekend I noticed an estate sale ad in the paper and since I was already up early, I decided grab a coffee and go browse. I found a few lovely treasures to add to our home, like this pretty hand painted fruit bowl:

I think it will look awesome filled with lemons and oranges from the garden! I also found an "old fashioned" popcorn popper and two heavy glass measuring cups.

I had to grab this stack of vintage pink towels! They'll look great transformed into handmade bath rugs and dish mats.

A pretty good score in my book,
and for less than 12 bucks
(coffee not included!)
