Today’s post is about Yard Sales, did the title give it away? Giggle. I must admit that I had not originally planned a blog post about yard sales. But when I put everything out on the couch to show my sweet husband . He causally said, “hey you should blog about that.” So, no fancy photos today, just straight off the couch.
I love yard sales! You know that old saying ( not really sure how old it is really) ” one man’s trash is another mans treasure”. Well, “you got that right!” Please note the improper use of the English language here . If you could hear me say it; with the incredibly odd accent I’m using, you’d laugh. Think part hill billy, part screeching owl.
When I go to yard sales I have a mental list of things I’m looking for:
Blue Mason Jars
A white pitcher and wash basin ( preferably a set)
Anything shabby chic ( I’m always looking for things for my art room)
An old desk I can paint white ( or that is already white) something else I’d like for my art room
Anything that screams” I’m A Deal Buy Me!”
Lets start with the full couch view. This is where I encourage you to guess the total amount spent.
This cute ceramic mixing bowl and matching dish still had the price stickers on the bottoms! I know someone who is going to love this country style. She has a farm theme in her kitchen.
I enjoy embroidery, these books and ready to embroider doilies are wonderful!
I’m always looking for new craft ideas and this book is just full of fun things to make. Did you notice the infused olive oil on the front of the book. Remember when we made that?
This pitcher is just lovely, it has a crackle finish and little felt dots on the bottom to keep it from scratching furniture and it has the price sticker on it too. I know it’s not the set I was looking for. But, it met the I’m a deal buy me criteria .
So now it’s time for the “Price Is Right” portion of my post, any guesses? $10, $20? No…. $3.50. That’s right my beautiful bloggy friends sum total for this wonderful pile of treasure three dollars and fifty cents.
Okay now it’s your turn, have you been on a yard sale ( treasure hunt) lately. How did you do?
