friday finds


Randy and I just ordered the carpet!! So relieved. So happy.
On the way home, we stopped at the mother of all yard sales! The same place that I found the aqua Pyrex a while back. This family is raising money to go on a mission trip to S. Africa. And they have since inherited an entire Estate that they are gradually unpacking. Oh my gosh, I am so going back tomorrow!
Today I got a pink Pyrex refrigerator dish (a dollar), three vintage aprons (dollar each), pink glass sconce and pink container (50 cents each) and a container of hankies (2 dollars). There were 44 gorgeous hankies inside when I counted! That's a nickel each! Be sure to clic the pic to see all the detail!

thanks for your kind comments about my new blog. http://todayscreativeblog.blogspot.com

I love your too. I am finding so many new creative blogs through all my comments.
Love all the posts about your sisters and the one about your dad. You are so lucky.
I've been to Garden of the Gods too. Amazing place. I expected a dinosaur to pop out.
Alicia is one of my favorites too. I live in the Portland area, but had never made it to her store before closing.

Yipee skipee! What beautiful bargains!! I was just telling my husband last week how discouraging garage sales can be because FOR ME it seems that I can go to 50 before I find one good thing! Better keep looking, because I know those few and far between finds will be worth it!
