My favorite day of the week! Saturday is here. This morning was great, I woke up to go find some deals at yard sales. When I go with my mom (we are serious yard salers), we usually get up around 6:45 for the deals. But when I feel like sleeping in I will just get up at around 8 and head around my neighborhood. Today was a sleep in day but I still found some cool stuff and only spend $14.75 all morning. Then came home to my coffee, muffin, and laptop to blog about it.
Here's my garage sale finds for the day:
Antique white cake stand
These thin queen size coverlet or tapestry if you want it ot be. Great on the bed for the summer heat. I love the colors and pattern on it.
White Starfish, I once read on www.thisyounghouse.com that you should always have a something of the sea like a shell in your room, SO when I saw this at a yard sale I added it to my pile. We aren't far from the beach but I'm not a very "beachy" style person when it comes to decorating but I must admit that I like looking over at my little white star fish.
Check out the following decor images to see if you can find the shell... This comfortably modern bedroom. Or this bathtub retreat. Or this cool desk nook. Or... this amazingly colorful living room.
Just a wicker basket, but could have sooo many uses!
These were super cool... I have no idea what I'm going to do with them yet. They are thick metal and the lady whose yard sale it was, said her daughter engraved the words on each canister. Each one says, "PADAISYROSEGERANIUMIRISTULIPDAFFODIL" Pa (I think was going to be pansy) Daisy, Rose, Geranium, Iris, Tulip, Daffodil.
When my husband saw them he said "Awesome, these are to put in the freezer and then they keep your beer really cold!" =) I couldn't stop laughing.
This super cool, thick, glass, gaint vase. Stamped "made in italy" on the bottom. I have already filled it with water and put some tree branches out of it. It looks awesome
And then I found this big soft basket which I put my "Jacobs coat" blanket in (which I got at a yard sale 2 months ago for 4$)
Yard sales are such an adventure. You go looking for one thing... today I was looking for some cheap old furniture I could redo. And you end up finding treasures you weren't even looking for. Plus you get to dig through people stuff, which I love- maybe cuz I'm so nosey!
