It's back.......!!



Rhoda's "Today's Thrifty Treasures" that is!! I almost missed it! I have been so busy moving and taking care of my son after his surgery, which he is doing very well. A big and heartfelt "Thank You" for all of your prayers. I have been so afraid to leave him, that I have been in this house for 3 weeks. Finally, he told me, "Mom, I'm fine, you don't have to stay here". So I ventured out for about 20 minutes to a yard sale just around the corner from me. And just look at the treasures I found!




This beautiful vintage laundry basket. It's in great condition and will look so good in my laundry/mudroom.









Here's another photo of it. I am so loving this piece and the price was a steal. (Really)







I was so happy to pick up this next little item, a vintage receipt holder, I love the numbers, and excited to see that Junk Girl over at Junk Fest had one too. She had some great ideas on uses for my new treasure.






I don't know what it is about these old barn lights, but I love them. This one was a really great deal and I was told that they have another one and I could have that one also. I love the color and can see them both over my new kitchen island I just created out of a vintage dresser. (That's another post).








Well, that was all I was able to pick up this week. But it is starting to look better as the weather warms, the yard sales are beginning and I can hardly wait to get some "Junkin'" on.


Stop over at Rhoda's at Southern Hospitality and see everyone's Thrifty Treasures.

Until Later,

  4. Fabulous finds! Glad to hear everyone is able to head out now to sale. Arizona provides nearly year round yard sale weather. (If you don't mind the summer heat!)

    I'd say you did amazing for a twenty minute adventure~

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, please stop by often.
