Garage sale Saturday!! 

Would you look at this GIANT froggy??  Actually, this was found at an Estate Sale, not a garage sale so the price was higher..but to me, worth it.  $15!  I plopped an ivy in him for his photo, but am replacing it with a larger, fuller one with a bit of moss around it...(I ALWAYS get in a hurry when I decide to take pictures of something!) :)
Yeah? :)  I love him on the front porch! 

I found this as well..and paid the same price...
Sweet husband gave me money for our anniversary and insisted I buy something I REALLY I did.

I didn't use the flash and the hallway is dark so the only light available was the hall light.  I am NOT a photographer.. nope! NOT a photographer! :)  I can see me in the mirror...yikes!

Just the cost of the silk flowers alone would have undone me!  I am always on the lookout for arrangements that do not show age, are in wonderful condition and suit my taste. 
The compote is very heavy!  I think concrete or some such material. 

At the same Estate Sale I found this little arrangement of sunflowers and roses...I mean, what could be better...not to mention hydrangia's!  I was delighted.  Once again the compote is heavy concrete...not that light stuff that is sometimes found in stores now.

From another angle...
The lamp in the background does not belong there... :)  You the early morning Sweet and Patient Husband likes to read at the table when it is a bit cool out...and brought this lamp in (painted by Rebecca @ A Gathering Place, to read by.  I lay another cloth on the end of the table, that way the ink won't run off on ONE OF MY SIX RED CHECKED TABLE CLOTHES!  Grrrrrr.....

I ...still cannot believe I had six of them.  I think someone must have planted them just to confuse me!!!


  1. Oh, I LOVE your froggy. He looks marvellous on your patio/porch & the ivy looked good. I wouldn't have guessed you'd simply plopped it in for the photograph :) The flower arrangements are pretty, too, especially the one on the dresser. The mirror frames the arrangement rather elegantly, I think!

    I have sent you an email :)

    Big hug,
    Des xoxo

  2. I think someone is sending me a message..on another blog I was admiring their garage sale purchases and now you show your great finds..hmmm, I think I need a garage sale Saturday too!

  3. Hi Mona,
    You always find the best stuff at the sales! Love the froggie planter. Love all your great finds.
    Now, I'm off to snoop around your blog and see what I've missed.

    I'm so glad that you stopped by today. I've been missing you.


  4. Just the cutest floggy ever....Love the way you dressed him up...


  5. Love the frog. Maybe I should send you money to find me some bargains. You did good!

  6. Hi Mona,
    Love the froggie and your red checked tablecoth is soooo summery! Hope all is well :)

  7. Hi Mona,
    I love the froggie too. What a find. I would love to see you at a sale...probably talking and looking around at the same time, so you don't miss a thing.Those flower arrangements are worth every penny you spent. Flowers can be very pricey. Balisha

  8. Hi Mona,
    I too love the frog. I think he was a bargain as he's absolutly devine. I have bunnies on my porch but wouldn't hesitate to include him if I had the chance.
    I recently purchased silk flowers from a craft store that was closing and thought I got a good deal until I saw yours. What beautiful arrangements.
    Have a great weekend.

  9. That frog is just as cute as can be! I don't think $15 was too much to pay for him... as long as you love him. :-)


  10. Great froggy Mona!
    And I so love your checked tablecloths! There is just something about checks that will always make me smile!
    I love reading your happy posts, you are so cute!

  11. GM my dear Mona..have missed you and love ya..Hugs and smiles Gloria

  12. The flower arrangements are so pretty. Especially the one on the dresser. I thing the mirror frames the arrangement rather elegantly.

  13. Hi Mona,
    I's say you had a great time estate shopping..The frog is so darn cute..
    I love your checked table cloth. I had one and left it outside to long on the table and it faded Boo-who.
    the red and white checked always reminds me of a summer day and a picnic.
    Have a sweet day and big hugs, Elizabeth
