Free Finds from a Friend

My friend Marie was having a garage sale at her parents' home. Her mom passed away earlier this year and her dad is moving in with her so they needed to get rid of a lot of things.

I went by to show my support and to help with the sale. She said I could take whatever I liked.

Here is what I brought home with me.

* Milk glass jar
* Painting in a beautiful frame
* Glass bowl with curved edges
* 2 Italian Cookbooks

I collect cookbooks. I thought I had a lot but Marie's mom collected them as well. And since we are I-talian, her mom and I have some great Italian cookbooks. Here are the two that I brought home with me.
Can't wait to try some recipes. And when I do, I will definitely think of her mom!
