Garage Sale Haul !

Last weekend a local charity opened up their 5000 square foot warehouse of donations for a public sale. They really had some great things and the prices were amazing.  I was able to purchase things for my shop as well as for myself.



Love the large mercury glass bowl, especially for $2.00. 



Ballards has very similar Santos for $79.00 each. Mine were 50 cents each.


Eight foot long needlepoint aubusson runner. Great condition!





See the original price for one of these mirrors?  I got two of these.



I bought everything I showed you today for $32.00!!!  Now that is thrifty.


I also want to show you two of the great items I won recently in giveaways.

Aren't these hour glasses divine? I can't tell you how much I love these.


Thank you so much Laurie for your sweet and generous gift. Please stop by and visit the beautiful and talented Laurie at Laurie Anna's Vintage Home.

I also won two of the cutest flower barrettes and a key chain wristlet  from Paula at Paula Grace Designs. Paula is an Interior Designer and has the most amazing photos on her blog.  Below is a picture of my adorable granddaughter Sadie modeling one of the barrettes.

Paula, Sadie loves the barrettes and they match perfectly with her new dress. Thank you so much for this lovely gift.

I really appreciate you visiting and all your support.  Please visit the parties below for creative ideas.

OMG, what great stuff and only 32 dollars. I wish I could find a deal like that here. I also spied what I love in your photo of the rug. I saw demi john bottles on the floor. I have one I found for ten dollars at a flea market. Most are over $100 around here. Are those going in your shop?

Shut up! You paid $32.00 for all of that?
I absolutely love the dragon tray (sorry, I'm sure there is a real word for it, but I don't know it).
Thanks for the visit and the encouraging words, it means a lot to me.
