Yard Sale Finds!

Good Afternoon my friends!! Have I had fun today. It was cool and misting rain, but that did not stop me from going to yard sales. I lucked out today and there was a community yard sale not far from my home. I love community yard sales because I can get my fix and go home!
I cleaned house when I came home. So now I am tired.
Hope everyone has a wonderful after noon!!

This little country Christmas bear was one dollar. It will look cute in a Christmas vignette.

I love this picture of horses. I am from horse country originally the Bluegrass State,Ky. I will of course paint the frame Oil Rubbed Bronze because it looks so good up against our egg shell white walls.

This gold table with glass was 5.00. Of course it will not stay gold. I plan to do a make over and use my beloved Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint.

This gold bag and the red bag below are Estee Lauder bags. The lady had both of these bags and sold them to me for 2.00. They have never been used.

On the inside of the gold one. There was a cute little makeup bag and mirror.

I do not know where I will display this pillow. But I think it is so cute with the doll and the bear pattern. I paid a dollar for it.

I found this Christmas pillow and the comforter below for 5.00. I have a table cloth that has the same embroidery as this pillow. During the holidays, I will display this pillow in the gold chair next to my dining room table.

If it white and has lace on it....its mine!

A close photo shot of the lace on this comforter.

This is a huge bird cage that was used in a wedding. I will most certainly do a makeover. I am not sure what color to spray paint it, please make suggestions. I want it to look more traditional vs shabby chic.

This floral arrangement was 1.00. I will use it in a vignette after the holidays.

I don't know if anyone knows this in blogland. But I collect piggy banks. I found this one today for 50 cents. Is it not a cutie?

Little bear in a little girls shoe! This will be used in a vignette somewhere. 1.50


  1. Oh my, what awesome finds. I will have to do a video soon. I'm running a daycare at the Heritage Counsel during the week and across the street is St. Vincent de Paul. Guess where I've been going a few times a week? lol. I scored yesterday on some milk glass myself...

  9. Hi Susan,
    I love the community yard sales too. It is so fun to go to many sales in the same day and neighborhood.
    You certainly found some great treasures too. The horse print will be awesome with the rubbed oil bronze frame. How bout that color for the birdcage too? Your makeovers will be wonderful.

    Hugs, Celestina Marie

  15. I know what you mean...these meds we're on just doesn't help out much with the weight issue. I have the same dilemma, but it's for heart meds.

    Oh my gosh, the Christmas bear...for a buck!! How incredible is that?!! And the daughter would just want that for sure. Pigs she collects.
