Finally! A day to myself! Yee-haw! Don't ya just love days like this? Nothing to do, no appointments, no cleaning, no laundry, no cooking, no referreeing. Just pure unbridled relaxation. It's a little Mother's Day present I'm givin' to myself cause I deserve it!!
So, with coffee in hand and Sinatra in the background, Come Fly With Me to a little place I like to call, Yardsale Heaven. I was there last Saturday, and the gods were smilin' down on me in a big way peeps!
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Always, always, always hit the church sales first. Get there early. A half hour early at the very least. Trust me, they will let you in. Church's never turn people away!
See this lamp. I did a bee-line straight for it. I'm a sucker for anything with crystals. And just look em all! This lamp is a lot bigger than it appears in the picture and it's just drippin with crystally goodness!
Dunno where it's gonna go, if anywhere. I may just keep the crystals and use them on some of the chandy's I have layin' around.
I got a thing for trays too. And who doesn't love roosters? Again, no place to put this, but has that ever stopped me before? It was also $1.
Picked up a few other things at this church, then it was on to the yardsales. Our first stop was a sweet little house in Pitman, a town just overflowing with oodles of down home country charm.
This house was by a lake with a white picket fence covered with Wysteria. There were vintage treasures everywhere.
Check out these adorable vintage cocktail picks for fifty cents.
Also scored some old games.
Can't you just picture these in a jar on top of a stack of books?
Loved the box too.
And aren't these dominoes sweet?
Again, loved the box!
These games were only $1 a piece.
This little ole' thang was just $1. Not even sure what it is. Probably an herb. Any thoughts??
That's a real terra cotta planter too!
And lastly at this home, I got this gorgeous vintage frame for fifty cents! I couldn't believe it!
Isn't it just precious!
At another house I picked up a pair of black floor registers to replace the brass ones I had in my Family Room.
I got both for $5! Whoo Hoo! I wasn't even looking to replace them until I spotted these. They go much better in the room.
So those are just a few of the goodies I got last weekend. Oh, and on the way home, I spotted these in a neighbor's trash!
Oh me oh my!
Now WHO would throw away such a beautiful chair? And in perfect condition no less? AND it's weatherproof!
I'll be lookin for a new cushion at my next yardsale outing!
But I think she looks FINE on my patio, don't you?
And how bout that little table in my kitchen? Whatdya think? Not sure? Me neither.
But I'll keep her there for now.
Now, come and party with me at these great linkies!
