Finds and Treasures (3)

The sun was out today and it was warm in our part of the Pacific Northwest. A perfect day for garage sale-ing! My dear little mother and I had a good time together at a few sales and we both came home with new treasures. Our favorite today was at a local church - a fundraiser to help kids go to summer camp. This was the second day of the sale. Shortly after we arrived they announced that everything was $1.00 per bag. As much as you could get into a bag! We got a lot in our bags and had such fun. I bought a couple of items that were too big for bags and they counted them as each being 'in' a bag. Two items that would have been much more were now $1.00. What fun.

A cute gold half-bucket. . .

Wooden 'firecrackers' for Fourth of July decorations. . .A cute soft stacking toy for Mr. H.'s enjoyment when he comes to Grandma's house. . .And a BIG Christmas snowglobe of the nativity. It plays 'Silent Night' as two beautiful angels look on and little cherubs go round and round at the base.There were linens and other treasures that did not photograph well in my evening light. I will share them soon when I can use more natural light to show their beauty.

Once again we had a day that will stay in our memories. A day together that was filled with laughter and fun.

  5. Good Morning Adrienne!
    I am just catching up with dear friends, thank you somuch fro your encouraging words. You are right, people aren't coming to examine my grout, they are coming to show love to our daughter. It really is all about the people.
    You got some fun things at your sale, I still need to read your earlier posts, and how bad am I? I should be cleaning that grout!

  6. Nice finds, Adrienne! I especially like the gold half-bucket and look forward to knowing how you'll use it. :o)

    I have a good sized space in the 3rd car garage that houses sooo many things I'm getting rid of. My husband prefers we don't have a yard sale, rather, donate it to charity. Can't help but think though that I know a few blog friends who might like some of the things. May have to put them aside. Only problem is..some are too wonky-sized to mail. So...you and your dear little mama must come down here and pick a few things up. There, it's settled. :o)

  8. I really like those firecrackers! Sounds like you and your Mom had a great time! I did some garage saleing too and also since the sun was out, went to the nursery and spent way too much on plants! Spent the rest of the day in the garden! Hopefully summer is here?!?! Have a great day Adrienne!
