YARD SALE FIND

I haven't been going to yard sales very much lately. Frankly, I'm just too lazy and hate to get around in the early morning. But, Bob still reads the ads, gets around and goes always searching for furniture in bad condition that he can restore and sell. The other morning he came home without furniture but with these two seltzer bottles.
The guy at the yard sale said they were from Czechoslovakia. Both the metal and glass parts have markings on them, but we can't make anything out.
The spouts are interesting - they look like birds of prey!


The glass is very heavy and thick; one is amber in color, the other green.


For now, I just enjoy having them around.




Do you suppose this is a start of a another new collection?
Be sure to check out the following parties this week for a plethora of inspiration!



A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday


Savvy Southern Style for Wow Us Wednesdays

What neat bottles Sally!! Yard sells have been terrible here. Bill is taking me to the Rosemont yard sale tomorrow in Pueblo as we went last year and I really had fun. I hope to find some goodies!

Went to the land today while hubby was changing hoses and such on the truck. While he did that I spray painted some of my furniture and small things for the booth. Was on a real roll till the sprayer stopped and I couldn't get it unclogged for anything.

Have elderberries dripping for juice and need to get in there and make the jam tonight.

Lovin the cooler weather !!!

When you head down south you'll have to look for more to add to this new collection. Is it two or three items that make a collection? We're liking this cooler weather. Makes me a whole lot happier.♥♫
