yard sale goodies

Wow. Life has been craaaaazy. I miss blogland.


I promise (yes, this time I really mean it) that the new Renter's Challenge will be up tomorrow.


This past weekend I helped my surrogate aunt (mom's bff) have a yard sale or should I say entire house sale. I really wish I took pictures- it was out of control. A definite treasure of a sale for those willing to rummage. The sale included not only a yard but also three large rooms! One, was the "antique room" filled with all kinds of beautiful prizes. My mom and I pulled an all-nighter on Friday pricing the last few things. Our first customer arrived at 5:30 am on Saturday. Needless to say, I am just now caught up on my lack of sleep. Here are some pieces that I was so graciously given to take home...
Magazine rack. Sadie had destroyed ours during her puppy phase. I love the look of bamboo. Fits into my home quite perfectly and already filled with the best- anthro and pb :)
Old books. Yes. Two words- Mark. Twain.
Telephone pole insulator. Will look great on a window seal.
Costume jewelry. I'm a sucker for a good 'ol stick pin and cocktail ring. Totally glam'n it up with this one.
Glass decanter. The family collected all types of glass bottles but the decanters were by far the most beautiful. I love the mercury at the top.


As you can see my hard work was totally worth it. Thank you Connie. I will cherish these pieces forever.

Dang, you scored big! I esp. like the ring, but the glass bottles are nice too.

p.s. I like to use the antique insulators in the yard. The colored ones add a nice touch of color. That one has a pretty beach glass color.
