I Love a Little Shimmer!

Don't you just love Carnival glass and Lusterware? I do and try to pick up new pieces when I find them at a really good price. They just add such pretty "glimmer" to a table.

Last weekend at the city wide yard sale, we stopped at a local church which was also having a yard sale. It was the last day of the sale and kind of late in the day. When we arrived they were starting to pack up the leftover stuff. They told us to look around and see if we want anything. And at this point, everything was .50 cents an item. I knocked Troy out of my way and raced to the tables! LOL

Not a lot left but, I found a couple of treasures.

First I spotted this pretty bowl. It has a berry cluster design.





Next I found this pretty plate. It has a bouquet of flowers design in the center.





I snagged this set of three lustery looking glasses. One is a smokey glass, another is a green colored glass and the third is an amber colored glass. All three for .50 cents.




So, that was my big $1.50 spending spree at the church sale!

Look at what everyone else has to show you today.

  12. Wow, you did get some bargains! I do love the bowl. Very, very pretty. And I'd have picked up those glasses too - even though my personal love is for plain clear depression glass!
