Welcome to my blog about yard sales, crochet, my family and my life. A yard sale map in one hand and a crochet hook in the other.

Saturday news

Just sitting here, watching TV, drinking my last Lime-a-rita....
....reading your blogs, and enjoying the peace and quiet. The guys have gone night-fishing and I have the house to myself!
Yard sales were plentiful this morning but the pickings were slim. Found a "shell" clock and three picture thingys to put at the pool for $1...............
 Three books for 50 cents each.......Love Merle Haggard!
 Pam found the sea-grass basket for 25 cents and gave it to me since I didn't have one. Measuring glass was 25 cents and the vintage cloth was $1. It is only tea towel size, but I wish it had been at least the size of a tablecloth.
 This mermaid fits perfectly in my bathroom.....$1.........
 My best deal was this Waverly comforter set $10! It included a bedskirt, pillow shams, and bolster pillow. It is reversible with a dark blue print on the other side........
Yesterday afternoon I staged a small seating arrangement on my front porch. This used to be the entrance to the front door......


It's nice and shady here, so I might use it to sneak away and read a good book.
Della and her parents are at the beach...
 Isn't this precious?

Hope you had a great Saturday!

Enjoyed visiting and seeing all the neat things you found. However, the most precious is the sweet little one.

You found some really nice things, today. Yay you! :) I especially love the vintage cloth. Miss Della is adorable! :)

Hi Charlotte, Your Miss Della is adorable and growing so fast. I love seeing pictures of her. Some people would make towels out of their table cloths when they got a tear, burned spot, or stains that wouldn't come out to salvage the good part. Have a wonderful Sunday. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

You have a cozy porch, I can imagine how it is great to sit there with a book or crochet!...

Also you find great things from garage sales, I liked the mermaid and the bed set most of all.
