 Saturday Morning Alarm Rings 7:00 A. M.
Grab my funky jeans bra and a T-shirt and
head on out to the kitchen. Get that coffee brewing!!
And then off I go to hit the sales
My 2nd Sale I hit the Jackpot!
This Antique Convex Frame with darling
Hand tinted Picture $5

This cute little plastic Policeman
with a little spring head
And this glass insert with pretty
rose appliques. It was originally
part of an old Iron Tray...
It sure is very Cottage Chic!

I just fell in love with these sweet satin
Baby Crib shoes. A white pair in the
original box and a butter cream yellow

This is a very nice vintage pair of
ornate milk glass candlesticks. 
The lady having the sale had a former business
making footed Plate Servers.

These are some of her creations darling
so I thought I would buy her candlesticks
so I could make a couple of them myself.

I just need to research what type of
glue to use. She did say I could find it
at Michael's crafts. So when I track it
down I will show you all how to make them

I hope you enjoyed a glimpse of some of my Saturday Yard 
Sale treasures. I sure did have fun this morning, it's always fun
to get out on Saturday mornings when things are quite. I am
usually home by 9:00. You know the saying "the early bird
catches the worm" That sure is right when it comes to
yard Sales!

Great finds! I would think you could use E6000 glue it seems to work on everything!

Holly said...

Hi, Diane! I had fun treaure hunting yesterday too but we didn't get out there quite as early as you! I'd love to hear what type of glue you use. ♥

Lori said...

Diane, i love your new hostess look SO pretty...great finds...the picture is just fantastic...and i do love those little shoes!!!

Lori said...

I love it all!!!! I have one of those candlesticks, milkglass and have to make one! I also have a large shallow lattice bowl with that base. The little boy is adorable! I believe I heard there is a porcelain or glass glue to make it permanent. When I do mine I prefer plain old hot glue. The reason I like to use this glue is if I tire of it I can pop it off. A few seconds in the freezer will do it. One thing is when gluing glass with hot glue you have to work fast and accurately cause it glues very fast! Have fun and can't wait to see your results! Lori

FYI you can go to to answer your question. But as a seasoned artist I recommend Crafter's Pick Ultimate Glue

Love your blog I have been following for awhile...
Good luck~Dawn
