I love Saturdays!! In the spring and summer they mean YARD SALE!! Another wonderful morning on the yard sale trail with Becca. Went out with $30 and came back with a haul. Here are a few of my treasures:
I am a sucker for holiday decor. My mom would love this!! And check out these adorable Halloween cup rings…too cute!!
With 11 grandchildren I am always on the look out for like new clothing and today I made a haul. Shirts, pants, sweatshirts, many with tags still on them. I ended up with 20 pieces for only $15. My kids appreciate my thrifting when I save them big dollars on keeping the kids in clothes! I also found three like new sweaters for myself. The thrill of the hunt and the satisfaction of a great find, LOVE. IT! However, notice no toys this week end….what is up with that? Not a good toy in sight, but I did score some yarn.
With a totally blank afternoon upon me I decided to dig into my sewing room and play. A few weeks back I was lucky enough to chance upon the yard sale of a person dumping most of their scrapbooking/journaling supplies. And for pennies (always amazed at what I can get for .25). Anyway I have been wanting to transform my morning journal. I mean how inspiring is a black composition book? My inspiration for this particular project was from a page in the latest issue of Country Living. I ripped it right out and built my journal around it.
I kept it pretty simple as I use this journal daily and needed it to stand up to daily abuse. Took me about 15 minutes. I think this would be a great craft project for the grands! Simple yet the possibilities are endless. I have a basket filled with buttons, ribbon, embellishments, sayings on cute backgrounds, paper, all sorts of bits and bobs just waiting to incite the creative spirit!!
