A Little Silver Sunday

On the way home from the local farmers market this morning we stopped at a rummage sale.  As we pulled up, my husband said it didn't look like it had much of interest, but I quickly informed him that sometimes it's the ones that look like they have nothing that have EVERYTHING!  It is true that one man's trash is another man's treasure!  And that was true of this little garage sale.

They did have quite a few goodies, but unfortunately, since we were just coming from the farmers market, our pockets were near empty... just a few dollars were available for spending.  But sometimes that's all you need.

And here is the little silver treasure I found ~ this adorable little frame!

It's about 2" x 3", and VERY heavy!!!

I love the scroll work, and the stand in the back is very different from any I've seen.

Not bad for $.50!!!

I posted this frame before.  Found this at one of my favorite antique malls.
It's stamped MadeInItaly on the back...too cool!

And found this at the same mall.
I always wanted a frog but never found one until now!

Have a great weekend!

Hi Lori,
you are absolute right to set up your pokerface when you come in the sale and not to show how interested you are. What a nice find is this frame and looks very charming how you displayed it. Nice collection of silver frames.
Greetings, Johanna

Your mirror & frame are lovely & I want you to know I've had my flower frog in the cupboard for approx. 25 years, at least!! Only used it for flowers until today. I'm getting it out & will put it into a blog post later this week, Thanks for the inspiration!

Wow, what a deal you got! And I love the Italy frame, I always pick those up anytime I see them.

Happy Silver Sunday!

Wow! For .50 cents I bet you are glad you convinced your husband to get out of the car!! What a neat find - I am so jealous to hear about farmer's markets, I love them but there aren't any around where we live. Happy Silver Sunday and hope you have a great week
