On Saturday, for the first time in a weeks, we went to a couple of garage sales. The weather has been a balmy near 80 degree's every day and garage sales are scarce at this time of year. Sometimes there are Estate sales but of course those are more expensive, however it's always fun when you are really looking for no certain item..but just brousing.
This nice sturdy basket turned up...and a really good basket is wonderful to find.
Estate sales used to bother me..and ..still do but
I would like to know that someone is treasuring the things I collected and enjoyed.
I really liked this basket. Nice, sturdy and can be used for so many things. I will take good care of it.
Last year my daughter Sandy brought me a beautiful pot of Hydrangia's. I planted them but they didn't survive..however these lovely Valentine liners were around the pot so I used ithem in the basket and piled in the sweet little pillows made by Becky @ Sweet Cottage Dreams.
She does beautiful work..and she is a beautiful person!
Pretty pillows? Priceless!
The basket, as I said, can be used for lots of things..
A pretty plate with roses in my favorite shade of green...
The is an ornate S on the back with a crown sitting on top and "Germany" printed across it.
A large lovely doily. Crocheting takes time and work. I know because I have made them in the past.
$2.00 Really? For all that work?
Total thrifty shopping?
Another short but fun treasure hunt. As I said, I know garage sales are less expensive but I am giving someone's treasures a good and loving home.
Beside's, my daughter's will be thrilled.
AND...I got out of the house! :):)
I am joining Marty @ A STROLL THU LIFE. She always gives the best parties!
