Yard Sale and Other FInds

On Friday, we took the 6 hour drive to our home at Lake Seminole. We'll be here for a couple of weeks probably.  Then it's back home to go with my daughter to a conference for her new job. (She was promoted to Curriculum Director/Grades 6-12) for our school system. The conference will be at Jekyll Island, and will be a mini vacation for our little beach lover, Rheagan.


There are few yard sales here at the lake, but I noticed a sign yesterday as we arrived, that there would be a "gigantic" one today.  So I headed out this morning to see what I could find.  It was a neat sale, held in a vacant home... vacant of people, full of stuff!!  Clothes filled three rooms, all sorted by size.  I didn't go through the clothing though, just the 'doo-dads'!  There were lots of dishes, books, dvd's, cd's etc.  Y'all know what a big spender I am.  I spent $3.00!!  Here's what came home with me.


This cute floral arrangement was a dollar.  It has large roses, and rose buds that look so genuine.  The vase is about the size of a 20 oz cup, and is shaped like one, but is terra cotta, covered with a striped design.
I knew I could find a spot for it since the flowers were clean and in good condition.



I bought the other three items especially for a table on the front porch.
Isn't this a cute little bench?  Red, white and blue with stars.  I think I may take the raffia bow off.  ($1.00)  The little fairy was free.  It had a broken wing, but I thought I may take it home and put it in the fairy garden. 
The pink flower is a metal candle (taper) holder ($1.00).
On the way back home, I stopped at Dollar General and found an awesome deal.  They had a cart out front filled with pictures, all half price.  I had been needing a larger picture to go above the t.v., so I bought this for $6.00. 




I like the pop of color it adds to the tall narrow wall behind the t.v.  The blue and white Currier & Ives plates were moved from this spot to the area above the stove.
A pot of fresh peas cooking on the stove.  Yummmmmmm!!!!


Well....that's all folks!!!!!!!!!!
