Hitting the Yard Sales

The weather here is gorgeous.  Blue sky, just a slight nip in the air, just the kind of weather to shop some yard sales.  I've found several the last 2 days that were really good ones, and of course a few good finds.  The find I'm happiest about is this wonderful fabric.

There is 5 yards of fabric at 66" wide, price $1.00!!  I plan to make curtains for my bed room.  I will have to add a band of some type of trim to make them the length I need, but I'm thinking drop cloth at the top or bottom will do the trick, and I already have that!!

This was a $2.00 find, and I liked it, but when I looked at the bottom, I couldn't resist it!!  Kathy Adams was my name for 35 years!!  (my first marriage).  Felt kinda eerie!!

I filled it with mini pumpkins!  Love it!

I bought this flower frog for $3.00.

75 cents for this makeup bag.

This cute shirt for $1.00.

Fabric 25 cents each.  Enough to make pillow covers in the green, probably a yard or more of the yellow.

I already did one project with some of the green fabric.  I copied this idea from Brenda at Cozy Little House. Mine isn't as pretty as hers, but I think it's a neat idea!

Have you visited any yard sales recently?  It's TIME!

 I am thrilled with all these treasures for a total of around $8.25!
