I know, I told myself I was banned from the thrift store and here I am GARAGE SALING!
I hardly ever go garage saling but my brother (see his before and after home photos!) is an ADVID Saturday morning hit the yard sales kind of guy. He comes home with lots of fun things and teaches his girls how to bargain with the best of them.
He'd kill me for this, but isn't he a good looking guy?? I just took this photo on our San Juan Vacation. Good thing he doesn't read my blog (or at least I don't think he does)......and yes, he's single or I would never have posted the picture!
Anyway, back to my thrifty treasures!!! (sorry about that!)
I bought the cool globe for 5.00
The rice maker for 2.00 (I really wanted one!)
The scrabble game for 2.00
The adorable skirt for 2.00
The amazing iron stand/bowl for 6.00
and the pampered chef circle pan for 1.00
(those are around 20 bucks new!! and we all know the more seasoned it is the better)
Wonder what I plan to do with my scrabble game???
I want to have a craft party and make THESE!
I am also trying to figure out where to put my big iron stand/bowl.
I photoshopped some ideas.....what do you think?
On the table?
I could put something else in it???? Lots of fruit?
And that classic globe, well it found it's way into the basement.
I mean really you guys, with fun finds like these how can you NOT pull over when you see that yard full of THING A MA BOBS! OK, I know I'm the one with the problem ;-) I need to stop collecting stuff even though my husband even COMMENTED on the iron bowl!!!
Yes he did, he said, "Did you get a new bowl?? That's really nice."
You know what that statement did, it justified my thoughts that garage saling was a very good thing. In fact, if I was smart, I'd end this post right now and continue looking for GARAGE SALE signs! HA! Have a great day my friends!
