Special Treasures

Yesterday was another good day for garage and yard sales. My dear mother and I had a good time together and we each found some special treasures.

I have been slowly redecorating our bedroom and I'm enjoying the fun of finding special things to finish the project. One small area between our window and a corner needed something that was just the right shape and size. I didn't know exactly what I wanted to put there, but I knew when I found it I would know it was right! Our walls are very soft sage green (which doesn't show up in the picture below) and I use darker greens and yellows in the room. You can imagine my delight when I found this wonderful old picture in a "25 cents each" box at a local church basement sale. It's perfect for my spot and the colors are exactly what I needed.

I found several other treasures and some great bargains through the day. After lunch we went to a little town about 3 miles from home to shop at an antique mall where we love to go. You never know what you will find that needs to go home with you -- some days we don't buy anything and on other days we find that special something that we must have. I found these yellow Fiesta salt and pepper shakers and they seemed to call out my name and say they belonged in my yellow kitchen!

There are other things to share from our adventures yesterday. I will share them soon.


  1. Glad you found some fun treasures!! It's so great to find that special something for a wall or part of the room - I always get so excited when I know exactly where I'll put something I find when I'm antiquing.

    The picture is really pretty and I can just imagine how great the colors look in your bedroom. I have Fiestaware as well so I love the S&P shakers.


  2. Hi Adrienne! I *love* finding treasures at garage or estate sales. In fact, when I was out earlier, I was tempted to stop at a few that I saw--but our house is torn up right now due to remodeling and I knew I if I brought "one more thing" into this torn up house--I'd regret it later. But I am glad you found your picture!!

    Thank you too, for stopping by my blog. Come by anytime! : )

    Blessings to you!
