The alphabet book I got for .50 it also has puzzles on each page and has never been used, I'll be keeping it for Samantha for Christmas, you can't see it to well but in the clear plastic box there is a snowman globe to hang on a tree for .25 that I'll save for Sydney.
The 50's traincase was a real find for $3.00 and in perfect condition, I now have two suitcases to stack in my bedroom:) The small birdhouse wreath I got for a $1.00 it has white pipberries amongst the greenery so why do I feel that it's for Christmas?:) The basket sign I think I'll use with my baskets, after looking at the pics for above my kitchen cabinets I think I'll take some crocks down and put some baskets up with them. Makeup bag .25 and brand new!
Now I have very good intentions for the Debbie Mum quilt pattern for .50 I love the 36 inch long one shown upper right on the pattern cover even bought two yards of fabric for $1.00 a piece:) yesterday I finally got brave and opened the pattern.lol I'd really love to make it...I visit blogs of quilters and theirs are beautiful so I figure for $2.50 I won't be losing anything if I don't like doing it:) The black and white check tea towel I bought for .10 and it is now being coffee dyed! Now on to the next pic...the faux geranium hanging basket I got for $2.00 and I have that hanging out by the pool house, I also needed the coffee mat for near my computer for my coffee or drinks... got that for .25 and it smells so good of cinnamon. I've also read that alot of ladies are reading the Mitford series so when I spotted all three for a $1.00 I snatched them up they came in a nice case too:) The breadboard on the bottom a $1.00 it already has a coat of black paint on it and I'm thinking on doing it like my stoveboard only useing it in a different room, the cutting board which I collect was also a $1.00. I had such a good time can't wait to do it again:)
The yardsales were about 25 miles from us so I always look at houses along the way especially the "country decorated" ones, when we came across this mobile home done in country, I told Stush I wanted to stop on the way back to take some pics. On the way back home he stopped for me and I was ready to get out of the car when around comes the owner of the house on a riding lawnmower I waited until he went around the back of the home then snapped pics from the car. I wish I could have got better pics but was nervous that they might not like the idea of a stranger taking pics of their home.
I love the way they painted it a dark barnred and trimmed it in white.
