not too shabby and still quite chic

Yesterday I had some awesome yard sale juju going on. I wanted to share--or brag-- however you want to look at it.  I went to about eight sales, one of which was at a home where their guest house/garage was much larger than our little nest.  Yup, I went yard sailing in a "fancy" neighborhood.  It was well worth the drive.

Overall I found some pretty great deals like:
  • a set of sheer cotton curtain panels $2
  • a new black picture frame $2
  • the metal LOVE sign $2
  • a mini birdcage $2
  • a cute metal detailed bucket $.25
  • two white picture frames $2
  • the barnwood frame with bird print $1
  • an LLBean boat tote for $1
  • and a cute brass kitty key holder (a belated birthday gift for Grandmother) for $1
I loved the muted blue and mostly white color scheme, it all ties in so well with the work we've got going on in the house.  I wonder if that's coincidence or just a sign that I'm going in the right direction color-wise.
Of course Inari had to give everything the once over since the camera was out.  She can't stay away.

It was a fun morning! Now to figure out where everything is going to live until the renovations are done... hopefully they won't have a temporary home for too much longer.


I'm linking up to Rhoda's Thrifty Treasures party, check it out and see what other awesome finds folks had this weekend.

Love the birdcage. I have my sights on a birdcage at a local consignment shop. I'm going back tomorrow to buy it...if it is still there.

Great find! La

You found some great stuff. Love the weathered frame! My cats do the same thing when I'm trying to take pics.

Thanks for your comment on my candle makeover!
