Garage sale goodies!

First up is a vintage baby scale~ TOOOO cute and perfect 50's pink!
I got this a few weeks ago for $5.
It will come in handy with a new endeavor I will share with you soon!
*NO, it's not a baby!*

Some antique flatware~ mostly from the 30's I beleive. Ten cents each.

My latest find.... two antique iron fireplace fronts!! I have wanted one forever, as we have a mantel to put in our parlor. I was so lucky to find these... and guess what~ only $10 each!
You can click to enlarge.
Such beautiful scenes!
I was so excited as I adore cherubs. That one is busted on top but I think it can be fixed. I'll probably paint it white later.
They have both been painted, the other has a great patina as is.
The other find was a sheepskin rug... I already had two, but it was so cheap I couldn't pass it up. I'll put it in the bathroom this winter!
I used one to take pictures of Nova when he was 6 months old.
These are some of my favorites!

Naturally, he peed on it~
That was some thick wool to wash!

He's wearing a vintage balloon outfit with trains here.
Cutting teeth and drooling like crazy!
He still sleeps with this elephant.
