Garage Sale Treasures

Have you noticed that I love garage sales?  I like thrift stores, too but the real fun (and real bargains) are at garage sales.

Look what I found this past Wednesday!  (Yes, Wednesday.  It's actually a pretty good day to go garage saling.)

All four of these pieces of jewelry only cost me $5!  I am in love with the two brooches.  I really like the necklace and the bracelet was purchased because it's trendy.  I don't know if I'll wear it.

It's so bold!  Rope and chains (and big bracelets) are really popular right now so I'm going to give it a shot.  What do you think, is this bracelet a winner?


  1. I think that bracelet is a winner!

    Then again, I like gold. Do you think people our generation and younger have kind of forgotten about it (how many people our age do you know who have plain gold wedding rings anymore? -- uh, besides us and I think you guys too). But I think it's so warm and pretty! I hope it is making a comeback. (Is it? You would know better than me!)

  2. Thank you! I've worn it twice now. I'm becoming much more bold in my fashion choices.

    Confession: I don't really like gold. I only wear a gold wedding band because my engagement ring (family heirloom) was gold. I'm warming up to gold, though. You are right that it's making a comeback. I see it all over the blogs.


I would love to hear what you think of my posts! Leave a comment below.
