Weekend Barn Sale

I'm not one to pass up a shopping trip, so when I was at my parents house this past weekend and my mom suggested we hit up a barn sale I was in for sure!

It was just your typical country barn sale- some trash and some treasure.

lots of pretty glass things

a section full of blue items

and this little beauty....

a lovely hobnail milk glass dish...complete with a lid



I was beyond giddy at my find. Normally I go to barn sales and find things out of my price range, ugly things, or nothing at all. Not this time...this little dish was snatched up in 2 seconds and I didn't even think twice about buying it.

Perfect for some candy, on a stack of books, maybe for little odds and ends that don't have a home, on my dresser for jewelry storage...its the perfect size for just about anything.

Whats a recent favorite find of yours?

finding my daughters loose tooth under her pillow for the "tooth fairy" was a favorite...
I am hoping I find a new vintage pocket book...
