~Estate Finds and Simple & Sweet Fridays #51~

I had to share with you some treasures I found at an Estate Sale.
This mirror was on the wall at the home
 and didn't have a price on it. 
I thought it wasn't for sale but I asked anyway and
 the lady said $25.
I said absolutely!

I love the detail on it and for now I put it upstairs in the hall.
I saw this on the wall in a entryway and paid $15.
I love it on my mantel. It has a European look.
I love gardening as you know and saw this lovely vintage fountain sitting all by itself.
No price on it. 
I asked, the lady said $10.
I'll take it!!
Stan did have to change out the pump and recement a piece on it.
The water comes out of the top of the umbrella.  
It's a perfect fit for that spot.
It was my lucky day!

Happy Thursday everyone!
