I Love Yard Sales!!!

Oh yeah, it was a good Sat. indeed! We had lots of sales and I bought a lot! Below is some of the stuff I bought. I'll show the rest tomorrow. I got tired of getting it all back out of the closet and taking pictures. I have to put things up because I have a very curious 2 year old lurking around! Here is the breakdown:
*4 watering cans - $1
*tray (has already been painted black) - $1
*tan leaf vase - 25 cents
*white vase - 50 cents
*glass jar - 50 cents
*new coaster set - $1
*2 wood frames - $2
*dog painting - $1
*metal stocking ( can use as a chalkboard) - $1
*lamp - $1
*2 Paris/bicycle paintings - $3
*6 chef prints (bought them for the frames) - $3.50
Total = $15.75
Go visit Southern Hospitality to see what other thrifters (not sure if that's a word or not) found!

What a great stash of treasures you found. I'm so glad I found your blog again. I had it bookmarked and had been visiting but when I started my own blog I somehow missed following you. I love your style. Good to see you're still having a good time with it.
