"...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."

Just a few of my favorite things. I found all these wonderful things at a garage sale last month and took a day to give them a new look. The picnic basket was so dreary so I painted it shabby white and painted roses on the top. After a quick amaretto glaze I think it looks perfect for a day in the country.
These wonderful things were all for sale at a yard sale. I knew the lady and she was so sweet. She said "if my prices are too high just tell me and I will make you a deal". I know a good deal when I see one and am smart enough not to let a deal get in the way of good manners. So often magazines inform people that if they are new to treasure hunting to always ask the seller for a better price. They also need to say remember your manners and don't insult the seller by asking for a better deal on something that is rock bottom priced to begin with. Be fair to the seller and they will always welcome you back! I love the way these things look so gently used. Painted baskets with a antique glaze are a winner in my book!
