This is a home interior piece. It matches my old world style in my living room.
All the little drawer open up. so extra storage for tiny bits and pieces.
These items were 1.00. I love anything with bling!
I love this crystal heart. It was 2.50 at a yard sale. Probably I paid too much for it, but I loved it and was not going to pass it by.
I paid 75 cents for all these items. As you can see in one of the boxes there were two quarters. So technically I only paid a 25 for all. I love a surprise!! LOL
This little easel was 50 cents at a yard sale.
I bought this little green bucket that is filled with jingle bells. I see future craft projects on the way.
This little ivory piece was 25 cents from a yard sale.
I found this little hobnail milk glass planter for 50 cents at a yard sale this weekend. It has two pieces , the little square on the bottom is the 2nd piece.
Up close photo of the quilt I finally finished after 2 years.
I started working on this quilt 2 years ago and finally completed it. Sewing around all the little stars to quilt it was tedious work. So I procrastinated. This is my July 4 decorations.


  1. Really love these finds. I love the heart and all the bling. I also really like the easal but my favorite is the hobnail vase.

  2. What beautiful treasures. Congrats on finishing the quilt. I know it must have taken a lot of patience and time.

  3. WOW! Great finds!!

    Your quilt is fab!

  4. Wonderful treasures and finding $$ in one! Love that. Love your patriotic quilt too. Mimi

  5. Nice finds you have there. Really love your quilt. Be blessed. Cindy

  6. i love anything with old books or fake old books, lol. that is a great find and i am totally jealous of it! good for you!

  7. Thank you for your nice comment! I love the little drawers that look like books. Good find!

  8. A green bucket! I just posted about not finding green things.
    Yup, my favorite is the stack of books. I'd find room for that, for sure.

  9. Hi Susan!
    I had to laugh--I have projects that are not only 2 years old, but some that are 5-10 years old! Like making a scrapbook for each of my daughters-- I think they will just get all their pictures on a DVD, and they can figure out what to do with them...
    I think you found some VERY cute stuff out yard saling!
    Especially like that easel!
    You don't always procrastinate--you already have your July 4th decor out--and it's only JUNE!
    Thank you for coming by my home!
    It was so nice to see your lovely face and read your comment!
    Blessings to you as you make your home!

  16. Hello my sweet friend the quilt is oh so beautiful and that is too funny that you found quarters in your treasures. How have you been? Ok I hope, I know that this heat is crazy this year, I swear I did not know it could be this hot in June.
    squishy hugs,

  17. That little stack of books is adorable and how cute that it has drawers in it! Visiting you from Debbiedoos Garage Salen partay, have a wonderful weekend:)

  18. Hi Susan
    You found some great deals! The hobnail glass vase is my very favorite, and you got a real bargain! I know what you mean about not always finding good things at sales or thrift stores. I think they go in streaks! Your easel is really neat too. I've got a bunch myself & love them! Thanks so much for visiting!

  19. How funny is that, that you found money in your finds?! And that stack of books sounds perfect for your decor....lucky, lucky. Come for a visit and see what I found yesterday. And it's so nice to meet you. :)

  20. I have the same book drawer set as you do. That is so cool. I have a double set..Mine actually can be used as a book rack. Mine have three laying down like yours with the drawers and two 'books' standing up attached to the three drawer book set...I see you and I have such similar tastes....You do have some lovely finds..Blessings, and thanks so much for stoppin by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment.
