Yard Sale Finds - March 10, 2012

Good Evening my friends!!
I will be out of town this week for a Social Work Conference. I plan to take my camera and the lap top. So I will be able to visit the blogs in the evenings. I so enjoy going to all the blogs I can, I go to my favorites daily and I seek out new ones to visit as well.
I thought I would share this weeks yard sale finds. I guess my favorites of what I found was the Picture and the candle sticks.
I plan to take Thursday and Friday off this week. The conference ends on Wednesday. I plan to do some spring cleaning. In addition I am going to incorporate all my recent finds into vignettes. I hope to share those with you as I progress with my cleaning and decorating.
These conferences take a lot out of me. So I hope it does not damper my decorating when I get home. But I will give it my best shot. I spent today cleaning the house, getting the laundry caught up and doing some cooking for the hubby. He has to eat while I am gone.
Hope everyone has a great week!!

I paid 5.00 for this picture. That was probably not such a bargain. But I love cherry frames and the dried flowers match my decor. I just love the earth tones. I am going to hang it my hall that leads to the master bedroom.

This little lantern has never been removed from its package. Its a cheapie, but its red and matches my kitchen really well. I plan to change out the display over top my pantry. This little lantern will be a part of that display. It was 50 cents.

I need plates like I need another hole in my head. But when I see pretty plates, I can not resist them. They always come home with me. These two were 75 cents each.

This little potting vase is such a pretty color of green. It will be awesome to use in a spring display or Easter display. It was 50 cents.

These white candle sticks were 25 cents each. I plan to use these in a Easter scape on my dining room table. The red ribbon will be removed of course! I have some white bunnies that will go great with these. I also found some Easter candles for 1.00 for about 6 of them that will fit these candle sticks.

I can not resist buying different kinds of soaps when I am out at yard sales. I like to display them in a pretty basket in the bathrooms. I also use them as I go too. So my purchase is more than just for display. These were 50 cents.


  1. It looks like you had a great day at the garage sales. I went this morning to one, and disappointed I came away with nothing.
    Enjoy your conference.

  2. great finds.. the plates are worth the enjoyment!!
    Have fun at your conference!

  3. Looks like you had a fun day "shopping". I love your finds...especially the first plate with the rose flowers on it.

    Have a good week away- xo Diana

  4. Hi Susan,
    You found some lovely things. Funny, whenever I see a lantern, I always think of my Dad because he used to collect them. Your plates are lovely and the picture is nice too. You did well! Thank you for your visit and have a wonderful week.


  5. You can never have enough plates to decorate with, Susan! Like the one w/roses- you could use it in many places. No yard sales here, yet. The weather is changing, so maybe they'll be starting up soon. Can't wait! ~Sue

  6. It's always fun to come home with great, cheap finds!
    Thanks for stopping by,

  8. Hi Susan!
    I'm thinking you're home by now, and starting to find places in your home for all these pretties! You must have been thinking about Spring when you selected them all...they are happy and cheery!
    I thought about going yardsaling this weekend, but then my sister invited me to Atlanta and IKEA instead. I love that, too!
    Wonder if 'll find some pretty plates?
    Have fun cleaning and stuff ;)
    HUGS, sugar!
