Yard Sale Finds

It was another wonderful week for yard sales!  Here are the highlights:
I found these two matching tables that I think I'll use beside the bed in my guest room.  They're in great shape and I love all the detail.  They will definitely be painted, though!
At the same place I also found several pieces of milk glass for my collection, including my first pink piece - this bowl!
I'm actually not sure if it's really considered milk glass or not -- does anyone know?  Either way I love it.
Everything - both tables + all the milk glass - was $25 - a little steep, but I really like all of the pieces. 
Three containers were actually a find from last week that I forgot to include in my post.  My mom found them for me for $1 each.  They're already sitting pretty on my fireplace mantle with some of my other milk glass.
She also found these two apothecary jars for $.50 each.  I don't know exactly where I'll put them - there are just too many places where they would look great!
I found these four all at the same sale for $3.  The two frames I plan to paint and use on my gallery wall going up my stairs.  The candlestick is milk glass for my collection, and the little vase will probably go on my mantle.  I love its texture!
This mirror set me back a whole $2.  It needs cleaning up and some paint, but I love the detail and style of the frame.  It, too, could go just about anywhere in my house. 

Hope y'all had as great a weekend as I did!

Hi Britt! Oh, you did great at the sales. Those tables are really nice. Can't wait to see what you do with them. I'm not sure about the beautiful bowl, but I have seen them before!
Be a sweetie and hope you had a nice Easter.

Britt-
I love looking at your blog and I always look forward to your yard sale finds. I was wondering...do you just drive around to find sales or do you map out a route the night before?

That's so funny- I JUST found an apothecary jar that is exactly like those two! Mine was $3 though. =( Ah well.

That bowl looks like pink milk glass. I have collected it, but I am by no means an expert. It looks like it may be a NAPCO piece. You could search it.
