Hello dear ones! 
I was supposed to attend a huge garage sale, but the weather turned foul and started raining. Thus, no one put out anything for sale. Not discouraged, I went hunting elsewhere, meaning antique stores. I rummaged around and managed to find a few intriguing things. I love the hand shaped clasp. I was told that it the older times, it hung in the hall and gloves were to be clasped when going from outside to indoor. 

I wish you all many smiles and sunshine!

Witajcie kochani!

Wlasciwie mialam isc na wielki garage sale ale zaczal padac deszcz i nikt nie wystawil swoich rzeczy na sprzedaz.Wiec odwiedzialm pobliski antczny sklepik w ktorym wyszperalam sobie pare drobiazgow.Najbardziej spodobala mi sie klamerka-raczka ktora sluzyla goscia na rekawiczki 

Zycze Wam duzo slonca i usmiechu!

Hello Katherine:
What a most intriguing and delightful set of goodies you tempt us with here. Yes, we too love the metal hand clip. Previously, we thought such things were for holding letters on a desk which were waiting to be posted, but now feel that a glove holder is a much more plausible option.

Whatever, we hope that the weather cheers up and we wish you a very Happy Weekend!

Serendipity. Look what you found when you were going to be doing something else.

Well, it looks like the bad weather didn't hold you back one little bit. You found lots of goodies to bring home..... I live in the Pacific Northwest. We have lots and lots of rain here..... If we let us hold us back we'd never get to go anywhere. :-)
