Recent Yard Sale Finds

Thought I would share with you some recent yard sale finds.  While I love yard sales I usually don't spend the whole day or weekend visiting them instead when I run my errands I take the long zig zag route home.  I found this several weeks ago at a sale next to the grocery store...........for $2.00 .

I also got these at another yardsale, I knew the lady so she let me have them both for $1.00.

Drum roll please.......I have been wanting one of these to use for winter decorating for quite some time, I got this one for the whopping price of $1.00.  It's not old in terms of antique, but it is already worn looking.

In the background you can see the garage trim that is on my to do list to paint.  Not sure if I will leave this list or not, I was just playing and thought it might encourage me to get some stuff done????

Why would I want to paint when I could be working on this......
I also will be picking up my August Civil War BOM packet and I still haven't worked on July's yet so I have lots "to do" on my fun list!


  1. I love that wreath!! I haven't been to any yardsales lately but have found some awesome things curbside that I have been reworking and decorating with. Have a blessed weekend
