Around the world for $1.75

Found these 2 globes for a total of $1.75. Maybe I could even paint them with chalkboard paint. As seen in a Pottery Barn catalog.

I have searched online and these prints can start around $40 unframed. This was my favorite find and best deal today saling with my daughters and my BFF ! Yay!

Shoe storage

For now this feels like a good idea! The kid's shoes fit perfect. I love this piece of furniture!

Blue mason jars

I love the look of these blue mason canning jars. Just a bit of color. They are great as vases or even drinking glasses. I found them at different sales and paid $1 or less per jar. I won't pay more than $1 each. And I would love to find more.

This adorable metal sign is 9.5 inches wide x 12.5 inches tall. A perfect bedroom decoration. Picture hangers are on the back.


Pottery Barn chair

This was one of my FAVORITE finds this summer!! We had purchased a Pottery Barn Anywhere chair for our oldest daughter for Christmas one year. We have wanted to buy a second chair for our youngest daughter. It was on our wish list. Then I spotted this large Anywhere chair at a garage sale. I peeked at the price tag. $5. I just had to have it! This chair is $129 at Pottery Barn! Perfect! I was so excited I gave it to her that day. I couldn't wait for Christmas. It would have been perfect under the tree though. She was happy! It is lavender. A perfect color for her.

Where should I put it?

I found this awesome cubby furniture piece today. I don't know what to call it and I am not sure where I am going to put it. But I LOVE it! I might paint it a different color. Black or chocolate? Keep it white? Depends on where I put it. I got it and all 3 baskets for $21.50 total !!

Saying goodbye to the world's longest yard sale

We ate fried pies. Saw lots of antiques. Survived temperatures in the 90s. And covered about 50 miles of 127 in Tennessee.

It was interesting to see the crowds of people.
We would find areas with over a dozen tents set up with treasures. Or there would be houses that would have one lonely table by the road piled with 'stuff' for sale. In some places the traffic was so heavy that it was faster to walk than to drive. Even though the official start was Thursday there were many tables set up a week early. Since today was the last day of the sale, some vendors announced everything was 'half off'. Just a couple treasures that I am bringing home from this trip. What an adventure!

We made it to TN!

We made it to Tennessee and the action has already started on 127. The big sale officially begins on August 5 but tables and tents are already setup. We spent a couple of hours looking around different places along 127. So far it seems to be antique store items with antique store prices. But it's early yet. I will wait for Thursday and travel to other areas along 127 to find treasures! I haven't bought anything yet.
