One Garage Sale and Lots of Rain

So I slept in today knowing that it was 90% chance of rain and most of the garage sales listed in the paper would probably never happen. Yesterday, however, I visited my DH's cousin - the one who I know I've mentioned in earlier posts. She buys storage buildings people don't pay for and re-sells the stuff monthly in garage sales. That's where I got my Gone With the Wind Lamp from an earlier post. On the second day of her garage sales she has half price day and knowing I wouldn't be hitting the sales in the city this weekend I decided to see what she had. For $13.75 I got all this.





Then it was off to WalMart with a friend of mine. I didn't buy hardly anything but this caught my eye and I knew I had to try it.



PS - Ms. Rhonda is canceling the Thrifty Treasures Party until spring but around here we garage sale all year long so be sure to add yourself to my followers list to keep up with the garage sale fun.
