Iron grille, very heavy - $10

I thought I'd put together some of my newest garage and thrift sale acquisitions for your viewing pleasure today...

Large, framed mirror - $10
Have a special place for it!
Probably will paint frame

Nine pieces of Johnson Bros.
"Olde English Countryside" - $5

Victorian wall pocket or match safe - $1

Side table - $8
To be painted

Pitcher and bowl set - $3

Picture frames - $2 each

Framed print - $2
Originally from Target

Found these at a consignment shop so paid a little higher price - $12 each

This was the most expensive - $15 from an antique/boutique.  I love how it looks so old world but sort of abstract at the same time.  This company, Creative Co-op, is the same one who put out the two consignment shop pictures above.  They also do other farm animals in the same style. They are all very striking.

Teacup and saucer - $1
Paragon, "Cliffs of Dover"

Battery operated clock - $2

Silver tray - $2
Retirement gift?

Pink pottery tea pot - $2
Not marked

Last, but not least, the morning sun rising in the east from the front porch of the Cottage...
