A Cold Garage Sale
I'm going to join two parties today. I'm joining Bloggeritaville for Thrifty Thursday.
Since I found a pretty blanket with a lot of red in it I'm going to participate in Rednesday at It's a Very Cherry World
Last night my MIL tells me about her niece having a garage sale today and tomorrow. If you read my blog a lot you may know the story of her - if not - she buys storage units that don't get paid for and resells the stuff. It was at one of her garage sales where I found my Gone with the Wind lamp that I love so much.
So after much debate I finally decided to go check it out this morning. Why the debate? Because, baby, it was cold outside - LOL. Mid 40's - which for us in Louisiana is stay inside weather.
Here's what I ended up with for braving the cold.
I really enjoyed the title of the book on the right. $2.50 for both
I bought these 4 plates to match the ones I got a few months ago $2
I bought this quilt/blanket for $1 - I figured it would be great to throw over one of my couches - until I can afford new couches I'm always looking for ways to cover them up.
