Wow! what a great weekend for yard sales!  I knew it would be great when there were a lot of yards sales  and the first few had some great finds.  Yay! 

 Here are a few of my finds, most of them brand new still in original packaging.

I'm planning a room makeover converting our son's bedroom into a guest room. It makes me sad that our son moved away from home, but the room is in need of new paint making it a good time for a makeover.  These home decor items will be going into that room.  I find it so much fun to collect things for a room that will be receiving a makeover.  I start to visualise how I'll put the room together as I collect items.

A king size comforter is a rare find, so you can imagine how excited I was to find this one.  It's even in the color I wanted !

 A $2 pillow

I've been using a 9 X 13 basket that was a wedding gift 33 years ago. 
 To say the least it's seen better days. This 99 cents basket will be replacing it.


  1. You have some great finds here. Its amazing how you found things that could all go in the same room and design. I too am a "garage saler." Was fortunate to "sale" the "400 Mile" and "Longest Yard sale in the world," recently. enJOYing your blog.

  2. Wow! You did really great!! Can't wait to see how you transform your son's old room!!

  3. You DID find some great finds! Good for you. My son, too, just left home. I empathize with you, and also identify with the need to paint the room!:)

  4. Congratulations on your wonderful finds at the thrift store. You always seem to come away with the cutest things. Looking forward to seeing your handiwork transforming your sons room into a guest room.

  5. Amazing finds!!! I love garage sales so much :) We should go together sometime...if you're ever in Chicago :)
