Fun Friday Finds

I only had time to run by one garage sale today.  My two youngest flew in from college this weekend to get a "mom and dad" fix (translation - they need more clothes and want to eat out).  It's one of the benefits that I love about working for an airline.  I probably needed my chickadee fix more than they needed us, but we will take anything we can get!

I spent a whopping total of $3 on the items below.  I already have some gorgeous fabric for the chair makeover.  Those cool vintage style bottles are for me to keep.  One day, I will revamp one of the kids' rooms into a vintage style sewing/guest room and it will be perfect for it.  The tray will see some new life too.

See how dry my poor Texas yard is?  The only good thing about this summer was that I didn't have to mow twice a week!



I'm pretty happy with my buys this week.  You can't lose when you only spend $3!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Fun Friday Finds

I had another fun friday finding either some unique items or some great deals!


Check out the vintage drink crates!  I got them for $1 each.  These are the same kind you see on ebay for up to $45 each.  I have fun plans for the vintage school desk and cosmetic case.  Those metal things you see in front of the desk, are four different trays that will be repurposed into some type of magnetic board. Come back for the transformations.

Just a note.  Because I work long hours and have a specific baby bedding project I have to complete within the next three weeks, I haven't been working on transforming my great garage sale finds.  But hang in there!  I will start posting some transformations in November, or earlier if the stars align!

Fun Finds Friday

WOWZA!  I found some awesome stuff last Friday!

What you see is ALL vintage/antiques: a sewing cabinet, coca cola crate, two very old suitcases, two old industrial bobbins, an antique cherry pitter, and a vintage box filled with blocks.  All this for less than $60!

I'm going to have to keep most of these treasures.   They are just too fun to resale or repurpose!
