Sailing...

Ah, the weather was perfect for yard sailing this past weekend. I had a super-fun time hitting some long-long-long block sales..... prices were great, the weather was fabulous and everyone was super friendly :-) Here are just a few things that I picked up... I found some jewelry along with a large faceted glass paper weight-- all of this for $2.A silver champagne bucket for $1....A large fabulous yellow bird cage for only $3....Two pirate chests for $3....Some pirate treasure, a pink & white box and some wooden paint samples, all of this for only $2.I also found three containers that I am going to use to hold some of my jewelry for $3-- I have never heard of "trollbeads" before... I googled the name... and up popped this link. WOW! They are selling the very same 3 containers for FIFTY DOLLARS. Crazy-crazy. I have these in my vintage dresser holding my earrings. They work perfectly! Fifty dollars... have you ever in your life?...... Lastly, this clock. I can't remember if I shared this already or not. I bought it a while ago---- for only $1. It works too!A fun-fun-fun treasure filled weekend, coupled with a gift card to HOME DEPOT from my lovely daughter... and it made for a perfect Mothers day weekend. I've linked up with "Thrift Share Monday" and "Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays"

Wow nice finds! I love the bird cage. Troll Beads are crazy. It's like it's a clever way of mismatching on purpose.

Oh my! I love that birdcage!!! I've never seen one for that price, though. :)

It hasn't been quite warm enough for garage sales here around Seattle.

Glad you're feeling better! Good haul!

WOW! Such fabulous finds! I am not surprised the Troll beads boxes are $50. They used to sell the beads in an upscale boutique where I live, and some of the beads sold for $70 a piece!!!!!
