Garage Sale Finds

We had one hour to find some bargains before we had to be at the ballpark this morning. I had to work fast. I have been wanting a bench to go in the foyer. Our foyer is pretty large and I want to make it more inviting. The bench above is not exactly what I wanted, but for $15.00 it will be great until I find something else for a bargain. I would like to make a cushion and pillows for it. I may put it in front of the bay window at the breakfast table later.

I love magnolias so I picked up the print for $3.00. Look, it matches my plates.
I got 3 Boxcar Children books. I need to write down what number books we have because we have so many now. The kids love them.

And, I found this floral arrangement in the urn for $5.00! I might add some red toned flowers later. I don't know if I am going to keep in on the antique dresser in the foyer, or put it in the dining room.

mrs. darling- we live in north Alabama. Most of the homes in our town are getting to be above the $400K range and these people love to redecorate. Yea Me! I get to get all their old stuff for a bargain.

We used to live outside Eglin Air Force Base and we had the officers moving in and out all the time. When they would move you would find boxes of stuff for the trash. They would be over weight limit or just in a hurry to get packed and would decide not to pack stuff. I have always been blessed to be able to have great garage sale areas to live in.
