Thrift Find Round-Up

Yesterday I spent most of the day hitting garage sales and flea markets with my mom and daughter. Thanks to my handy-dandy iPhone we were able to take craigslist with us to find all the good sales. I don't know how I ever lived without that thing...serious.

Of all the sales we hit, I purchased the bulk of my stuff from one garage sale. And to be honest, we almost didn't stop because it looked like pure junk...and not "good" junk either. But it turned out to be a gold mine for "good" junk. Check it out...




Over the holidays this past year I accumulated a couple of scentsy warmers. I am kinda on the fence about whether I like them or not but oddly enough I found some cheap blocks at the same garage sale that had the junk and pretty much had to buy them.

I couldn't believe this antique fan was going for $12.00. Kinda had to have that too...

 Isn't it adorable?



And this storage bin for $2.00....can't let that go to waste! I'm not sure what I'll do with it but I'll do something....



These pizza boards came from one of the flea market vendors I hit up. A buck a piece. I'm going to make signs or chalkboards out of them.


Oh and did you notice the cute little table? I just got this a week ago and am pretty much in love with it. When I moved into my current place, I was using a little bistro like deck set as a table. My place doesn't really have a designated dining space but with a family it's hard not to have a real table and chair set.

So the idea was to get a table that is small enough for our space but could expand for company. I had a vision of an old table and mismatched chairs that I will paint to match.


The problem is, I am really liking the old wood finish on this piece.



And because I have great family...I inherited two high back chairs to go with the table. I can't wait to see how these all look together when I'm done with them.


And last but not least on the puppy diaries....SLEEP SLEEP and more SLEEP for this little guy. Other than that...it's PEE PEE and more PEE followed by making his older brother mad!

Happy Sunday everyone :)
