Thrifty Finds, GreenMan, Fairies, and more...

Estate sales as usual. I found a few good things. A green man to hang outside, to watch over the garden.
A pretty set of salad plates.
They are Haviland France Limoges. The rims are gold and have a delicate little gold and blue design.
My sister adores clowns, so I found this little clown to sit in her garden.
And a fairy to sit in mine.
And a turtle candy dish. It has butterflies all over.
The turtle's shell lifts off to reveal the inside of the dish.
A silver ornate candle holder, a very tarnished serving spoon, and a little witch figurine.

  4. Love the green man, but your best finds, IMHO, are the salad plates and the candlestick. It's always fun to hit estate sales, isn't it?
