I went yard sale shopping with a friend a couple of weeks ago. *NOTE* –Always take a friend! It’s more fun; they help you find the address in the newspaper; you can laugh at the silly items together; etc. We went out EARLY and I came back with a car load –again!
See that “palmish thing”? Yeah, it’s a crazy looking turkey! It was $1, and I just couldn’t leave it there. You should have seen hubby’s face when I brought that palm-tree turkey inside! I just said “look away”, and he did… but not before he let me know how much fun it is to burn palm branches! So, if I try to paint it, stain it, or pretty it up in any way, and it doesn’t work? He’ll torch that baby with a smile on his face!
I also snatched up these 2 boxes of craft supplies for a song.
Do you see the treasure in the box on the right?
Yep, that’s etching cream! I have been wanting to buy some of it since I got my Silhouette cutter last Fall. But it’s really expensive. And I got like 5 bottles of it in the box!!! I can’t wait to try it out. I have all kinds of monogramming projects swirling around my brain.
I also bought several metal objects this time. Now, my first love is WOOD! Let’s not forget that a wooden box or bin can make me swoon. But this day was a metal kind of day. I’m most excited about the two urns. Hubby already had them blasted clean for me and primed. I can’t wait to paint them and put them on my front porch. You’ll be seeing these again, for sure!
Horseshoes and a gate hook? No, I don’t have a plan, but I loved them :)
I love a good yard sale!
