Did somebody say "Yard Sale"? I'm on my way!

I woke up at 5:30am Saturday morning, took my shower and was ready to go before the sun had a chance to come up. Isn't it funny how you can always get out of bed when you want to do something fun (no matter what time it is), but when that alarm clock goes off for work you wait until the very last second???

I had looked at the newspaper the night before and knew there weren't going to be a lot of sales, but I always find sales on the way to sales. So, I got my hubby up and made sure he had money in his pocket and away we went.

We stumbled across a few good ones. I got these apothecary jars for 50 cents (for both of them ... yeah, I know ;).

Then I got this tall glass vase at the same sale for another 50 cents (pretty good deal, huh?). I threw out all the "stuff" that was in it. It was some kind of potpourri that had definitely lost its scent.

At another sale, I came across this adorable metal wall pocket. It was already painted and chippy. I asked her how much and she said "oh, how about 50 cents?" I don't know where it will go, but I'm sure I'll find a home.

My hubby wanted these two iron birds. Got 'em for $3. We're obsessed with birds, bird feeders and bird baths. Here they are on a railing of our deck. I hope the real birds aren't afraid of them.

Then we went to a moving sale where they wanted $35 for this bench, but we bargained with her for $25. Isn't it cute? It came with this cushion and it has storage inside. LOVE IT!!! It now has a happy home on my deck.

Lastly, we went to an auction on Thursday night and I got this cute wicker chair for $10!!! I threw a piece of fabric I had in my craft closet over the cushion that came with it because it looked awful. I love how the paint is kinda chipped off in spots.
Now, run over to Rhoda to see other treasures from the weekend!
