Having to miss yard sale day last week was not pretty.
I'm not proud of the tantrums I threw and the words that came out of my mouth, but detox is hard.
My apologies to my family.
Anyway, this Saturday I was back on the road, classified ads in hand and I feel much better now, thanks for asking. Sales over the holiday weekend were few and far between but the ones that we found were good ones and I managed to find a few goodies.

Before we begin, this is Rudy, (mini doxie) checking things out before the photo shoot. I consult with him on all creative endeavors. Luckily, he approved. (you don't want to see what he does if he disapproves)
This cute table is one of two I bought for $3.00 total. They each have fold up leaves on the sides. The shutter was FREE (love it)! and the box on the left is a Nesco steamer, brand spankin' new, never taken out of the box, $5.00.
Ok, so I want a real wire birdcage but I haven't come across one yet. I grabbed this kinda beatup lookin wooden one to tide me over. Inside is a hand carved cardinal that my father make for me. (he's very talented, my dad I mean, not the cardinal) I'll show you some more of his carvings in another post...
And this is uncle Philip. Or so I've named him. Isn't he dapper? What I especially loved about this picture is that it's dated 1913, which is when my house was built. My plan is to leave it behind if we ever move, so when "if these walls could talk" tv show comes in, the new owners can have a grand ole time trying to trace Uncle Philip's history back to this house!
Every yard sale excursion nets me at least one pretty dish. This one I really love. Pink and Green flowers, how could I not grab it?
That's it for this week. Thanks for stopping by.
Now I'm off to Rhoda's Southern Hospitality to check out everyone else's thrifty treasures. Hope to see you there!
