Jack would love it :)
Our neighbor Jack, died a few months ago.
He was a voracious collector of nice antiques and his sale was anticipated around here by those who loved him. 

And loved antiques. 

(We) antique collectors fantasize that someday people will own our things and enjoy them (silly, I know!) 

I had an empty corner (imagine that...) which was the perfect spot to put the things I got at the sale. 
I smiled thinking Jack would approve at my display of his things. 
I suppose a lot of people did the same. 
There was enough in that house to make many neighbors happy! 
Photographing framed pictures is a challenge...I didn't get close-ups for you!
I spent $85 all'd I do?

I think you did great Phyllis! The best part is that Jack is remembered by you whenever you see these things.

The table is wonderful and I really like the various ways you've decorated it.

That's my sort of decorating! Simple, yet it tells a story. I love vignettes like that. I love the hat especially. I think hats like that are so wonderful, and that one seems especially appropriate for Derby weekend.
