Yard sale finds

Rainy weekend so only a few yard sales. Micki, Pam, and I went to a couple Friday. This is all I found.... a teapot trinket box $2 and a mirror compact 50 cents....

We stopped at the Goodwill store and I found these......
50th Anniversary dish  and  bell for 99 cents each......
 .....roadrunner $1.99.....
 I couldn't believe only 99 cents for this large Santa! It's at least two foot tall!
This morning, Justin and I went to a couple of church sales before heading to Home Depot.
75 cents for this wooden Christmas tree. You wouldn't believe how many people asked me what I was going to do with it! They were shocked to hear that a tree like this sells for $25 or more at Christmas time.
 This little bird and cage was only 25 cents! It might go home with Della! The perch is made for two birds.
 $2 for this Nascar t-shirt for Sloan. Still had the tag on it!
 Set of king size sheets for $3.....
 This is from Ikea! Birds and tree branches for the wall $3.....
I texted Holly to show her the bird because she told me that Della played with the bird I got last week more than any other toy she had ever gotten. She sent me this picture ..........
Della had gotten into her lipstick and blotted her lips on the wall! Priceless!

Saturday News

Busy Saturday! Janet, Micki, Timmy (Micki's husband), Gavin, and Sloan went yard saling with me this morning. Although Gavin and Sloan slept most of the time! We found some good deals today.
I bought these two toys for Della and Maxel. They came by to visit soon after we got home.
 Della's spins with lights. She loved it.
 Maxel's lights up and the balls fly around. He didn't want anything to do with it until they got ready to leave.
 Before they left, we went down the road to a neighbor's yard sale and Justin bought Craig a riding lawn mower. Craig promised to help restore Justin's '46 Chevy truck to pay him back. I didn't get a picture of the mower but Justin bought a wood chipper from the same yard sale.

I already have one of these little chairs but this one was a good deal for $2.
 $3 for the bear...

Another angel for 50 cents and a bird. These birds sing and sell for $20 at Walmart! Della took the bird home with her.
 Starbucks mug 25 cents....
 Wacky clock for $2....
Four chair cushions $2. They all need a little mending on one of the ties.

Another shower curtain $1...

Charlie Brown, Lucy, and Woodstock 75 cents.....



Vintage dresser scarfs and handkerchiefs $3.....
 Beautiful embroidery!



 I tried to get a good picture of the beautiful tatting...








 Crocheted edging....











I bought this futon with Sloan in mind but he didn't want it, so Gavin took it. He's going to use it in his "recording studio".

Beautiful crewel work $5.....

I stopped by the thrift store Thursday and found these deals....


 50 cents for this vintage game!
 I'm thinking of decoupaging to save the brittle paper.
Justin brought home another wooden playset....
 A new home being built across from Janet's driveway.
 Justin has been painting the porch rails.
My beautiful granddaughter, Kayla is going to the prom tonight.
 The tattoo on her back is Declan's birthdate in Roman numerals.





 Kayla and her mom, Janet.
Speaking of Declan, I kept this sweet little boy for a couple of days so Kayla could work.
 Justin wrapped a towel around his head!
 This is how quiet he gets when the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse comes on!


 I took Sloan and Gavin to get their haircut yesterday and this is what entertained Sloan!
How was your Saturday?
