New Finds - 06-12-2010

Sorry this has taken so long to post... It has been such a busy week... I am almost at the end of the gardening for now... yesterday was so hot I was dying out there... but I think I finally won the battle with the weeds.

Last week was the town garage sale in my neck of the woods... It is a garage saler's dream... the whole town participates... it is wall to wall people. 

My sister and I headed out at 7:00 am and shopped until we literally dropped... If you have a want list you are likely to find everything you are looking for...

House of Grace kindly featured my crate on her terrific blog, make sure you pop over and have a look at all the other wonderful finds.

if you follow me you know that I have this terrible weakness for anything old and wood... this was just too good to pass up, they wanted $20.00, I offered her $5.00 and she took it... score it's mine...
I have no idea where I am going to put it...


a $2.00 find... back to the nursery to buy MORE plants... I already broke the bank buying plants for my planters... I am afraid to go back there again...

Brand new Crabtree & Evelyn soap and brush
 $1.00 I'll take that thank you very much...

7 concrete stepping stones $5.00... it didn't take long to find spots for them after the rain washed the dirt off them...

I was so excited to find this beauty... I need one for my deck... another man was interested in it but his wife wouldn't let him buy it (I was so happy he was such an obedient hubby)... so I got right in there and scooped it up... all I heard was $25.00, okay load her up, she's mine...

I couldn't resist this piece... you know it is going to get my magic potion and this time I am not going to try and burn the house down... $5.00 was a little higher than I wanted to spend but I really liked it and the frame was worth that...

I found this awhile back it is going to get the grunge treatment also...

I couldn't resist this basket for .50 cents...

shelf $3.00... stay tuned this has already had a makeover.

"Kitchen Aide" these are all hand stitched... these are so cute...
the pic doesn't do it justice at all...

the "Office Monitor"... aren't they the cutest... score $1.00 for the pair.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed the tour...

Have a great weekend...

Hugs, Deb

I love the little crate. I'm a sucker for anything old and wooden. You got some great finds and the prices were super. The power washer will really come in handy. We have one and Grampy uses it for the deck, siding and carport a couple of times a year.

Check out http://corninmycoffee-pot.blogspot.com/. She has a little crate similar to yours and just posted about it yesterday.

I love all the pieces! We are way too much alike. Good thing we don't shop together, there would be injuries! ;)
Had to laugh about the plants, I too can't seem to stop buying more flowers! It's another addiction I need to deal with...
