Saturday was a great day for attending sales in our "neck of the world". I found a great garage/sale flea market setup in a park and managed to snag some great items. Also hit a local estate sale and again found wonderful items. I was about 2 hours late getting to it but lots of hidden goodies to be discovered there. My findings included vintage skeleton keys (6) ; other small unusual keys, glass flower frogs (one carnival) , vintage linens, uncut vocabulary card games (great for display), glass cloches, millinery flowers, and lots of other goodies. If you see anything in the pictures that grab your attention you can email me about them. Everything is for sale too!

I was out of town for a few days last week and didn't get anything new listed on my garage sale for this weekend. So, everything from not sold from last weekend's sale is 25% off the asking price. All of these items need new homes and I will even entertain reasonable offers so email me. I will have new items ready for next weekend's sale so be sure and check back to see what is being sold.

This is hubby's version of a 'topsy turvy' as he is not about to spend $ 19.99 plus s & h for one of them. I have names the tomato plants "patience" and he is hoping this method will work. I will keep everyone posted on their progress. He is really into spring planting too with all his herbs and such.

I was lucky enough to visit a couple of thrift stores over the weekend and find a few neat items. I love the books - especially the one on Paris - tucked inside the pages was a vintage map of Paris streets. The other books will be in my Etsy store soon. The other finds were just odds 'n ends of items that were too cute to pass up. Some will find their way to my booth in the mall and the others will also be in my Etsy store. I am anxiously awaiting warmer weather and more garage sales and estate sales to crank up....hurry warmer weather!

I woke up in a creative mood today and repurposed an object that was soon to hit the trash pile. I found a rusty fence pliers and horseshoe that had been welded together in its earlier days and made a cute nesting from it. It is now in my booth for sale and I hope it finds a new home. Great for spring decor!

Have you ever woke up in the morning humming a favorite hymn and can't seem to get it out of your mind? This morning I woke up humming 'His Name is Wonderful' . Today is Palm Sunday and I encourage you to attend the church of your choice and 'Bow down before Him...Love and Adore Him' today. Jesus is My Lord and I am so proud to live in a country we can bow and worship Him. Have a very Blessed Day !

Today was a beautiful sunny warm day for a change. I went to a garden show and hit a garage sale on the way back into town. We found a few neat things which can be repurposed into some wonderful stuff. I have worked on the grungy bird cage and some may think I have totally ruined it but I did prime it this afternoon. I have started painting it white and have one coat of paint on it but will try to finish it tomorrow after church. I need to put it in the booth to resell and the state it was in no one in this county would understand the neat rust feature it had in its former life....therefore the white paint and a little touch of fufu in it. Here is a picture of it with the primer and I will post a picture when all the paint is completed. Hope everyone had a great weekend and found lots of neat things.

Friday, April 3, 2009

This weekend's project is to try and clean this birdcage up and have it ready for the booth next week. I still haven't decided what to put in it and will play with thoughts as soon as it is painted. It has so many possibilities for use and it will take just the right objects to set it off. Any ideas from others are welcome! Have a great weekend and a very blessed Palm Sunday.
