1st Garage Sale of the Season...

...And I did GOOD!

Actually, I didn't do just good-I did fanfreakingtastic!

So much jewelry, so little time-Thankfully I was able to make it to the garage sale before they closed up shop for the day. You see, our neighborhood garage sale was last weekend, but the weather the whole 2 or 3 days it was going on was completely S%^@#!

It was freezing cold with rain and snow mixed together and even 50 mph winds one day-Talk about a bad weekend for a neighborhood garage sale >.<

But all that aside, I got to hit one down the street Saturday that I know from years past has premium jewelry pickin's and I had at it. My hands where so full 5 minutes into browsing that the lady came and gave me a basket. LOL

By the time I was done, I had a whole bag full of lovely, lovely goodies and the best part of it all? I got an incredible deal!

Here are some of my finds::

My favorite of the lot-An incredibly unique men's lion head ring complete with ruby-like eyes and diamond-like mouth!

A strand of gorgeous multicolored stone beads that I'm going to upcycle.

A very large, very ornate Limoges J Fragonard necklace and pendant (the back is a mirror!)

More odds and ends I picked up to incorporate into my jewelry!

My big score in it's entirety! All for $14 :)

Oh man, I think the bug is coming back...

The garage salin' bug!

Nice score!!! Love the lion head, it reminds me of a snake ring I have (and jealously keep, my grandpa gave me)
