rummage and garage sale finds

this past saturday morning i hit up a rummage sale in chestnut hill and a garage sale by our house. first of all the houses in chestnut hill are amazing, i mean, really amazing, old, stone houses. i got lost on the way home, but didn't care because i saw so many awesome houses.
so here is what i got, juice glasses, salad bowls, fabric...

painting of awesome old lady...

and canisters...

they are hornsea pottery, labeled england 1973, bronte design. i adore the pattern and colors.
oh, and not pictured, "obama bulbs," which i just had to buy because of how they were labeled. they are tulips from a neighbor, and i'll have to plant them in the fall, keeping my fingers crossed that the damn squirrels don't eat them.
anyone else find anything good this past weekend?
