Today was the first real day it was nice enough to go hit the yard sales around here. There was quite a few listed in our local paper so off hubby and I went. I spent a total of 18.50 and here is what I got. 2 french shabby chic signs on wood. The original tags were on them at 12.00. I paid 3.00 for both. An unfinished pegboard shelf for 2.00. A sisal rope planter box for 1.00. A hanging metal planter with a coco liner for a 1.00. ( I almost bought one of these at Lowes for over 10.00 the other day) A wooden bucket that I will paint and use as a container for plants outside. A shabby decoupage flower picture for my daughter for 1.00. A shabby shadow box picture of a little cafe. A homespun tablecloth in brown and white. A man at one of the sales saw me looking at the window inserts he had out. He said he never got around to putting them on his new Anderson windows. I said I was thinking of them for a craft project and he said how many do you want? So he gave me 4 for FREE and then another 2 that I will use as trellises for free too! My favorite buys today were the 2 vintage leather suitcases. I plan on decoupaging some old travel stickers on them and using them as a display in my bedroom. I also got 3 little porcelain boxes. One is a rooster, a pile of suitcases and one is a little dresser. 50 cents each! All in all it was a great day!
