> Yard Sale Finds These are my two yard sale finds of the weekend. I found them at a sale a lady was having in a development down the street from my neighborhood. I was the first one there and she did not have everything out yet. I spied two Southern Living boxes that she had never opened. I ask what was inside the boxes and she unsealed them and showed the candlestick and flatware caddy, both brand new and never used. I ask how much she wanted for them, she stated 2.00 for the candlestick and five dollars for the flatware caddy. Of course I said, SOLD! I did some research on line and the Southern Living Home is now called Willow place or something like that. Anyway I found the flatware caddy and it sold for 82.00. I could not find the candlestick.

Hello Friends! I wanted to do a quick post. I wanted to share the changes I have done with dining room and the beloved Entertainment Center. I welcome your comments! Again! The Entertainment Center. Yep! Once again I changed out the decor on the entertainment center. I have to say though I have liked this one best of all the ones I have tried. I love the natural balls in the basket in the center. The log cabin print was a Goodwill find. I did not know what to do with it or how to display it, so I decided to use it here. The lamp was a yard sale find and the little house was a GW find. I don't remember where I got the candlestick and bird on the right side of the center. The bird in front of the plate came from Tuesday Morning. The plate was one of last weeks finds.

Good Evening my friends! I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. It has been cloudy and wet here all week. But that did not stop me from going to my yard sales. I did not have to go far this morning for my treasure hunt. The housing development down the street from me was having its annual Community sale. I had so much fun going from house to house and talking to everyone. The most fun of going to yard sales for me is talking and getting to know the people! There are so many different personalities, some really beautiful and nice people........and then you have the others. LOL. I wanted to share all my finds with you. I had someone ask me why I posted the price of my purchases, was I bragging about how much I spend. Well I guess I am sort of, but not in a show off greedy way. I like for people to see that they can find some really nice things for very little money. I have thrifted all my adult life. I never saw the logic in paying full price for something you could buy at a yard sale for nearly nothing. Also it is my way of keeping the earth green. This little box will go with the rest of the pill box collection I have. It was a dollar!

Good Evening Bloggers. Jimminy Cricket! Did it ever rain here in Myrtle Beach today. I can not remember when we last had a down pour like it did today. The worse part was I had to drive home in the worst of all the mess. The rain was needed though, over the weekend we had over 8 acres to burn almost jeopardizing several homes in this near by community. Thank the good Lord there was only one injury as a result. A fireman turned his truck over somehow. I do not know the full details of that incident. I wanted to share my weekend sewing project, some Goodwill finds and some yard sale finds. I know that sounds like a long post. However, compared to previous post this one is quite short. I hope you enjoy! Sewing project! I sewed this little toddlers dress this weekend. When it was finished, I texted my daughter and my daughter in law and attached this photo. I told them " Somebody better get busy". LOL

Good Evening Bloggers! I am writing this little note short but the post is long. I went to Goodwill today and wanted to share what I found. Also I have been busy with projects and wanted to share these as well. Hope you enjoy! I absolutely fell in love with this picture of a log cabin. I think an artist specifically made this for a couple. The little sign in the picture says Saundra and Brian. The colors were just so wonderful it had to come home with me for 3.93.
