I found the following three roosters at the same yard sale for $3 each.  Each one stands around 12 inches high.  I looooove them.
I found this napkin holder and recipe box at Ross several years ago.  I can't remember how much they were but I remember they were inexpensive.  Something like $3 or $4 each.
I found this rustic rooster picture at Goodwill $1.  I love the old weathered wood frame.  It is an original painting some made and signed.  I found this crate of eggs at a boutique and paid more than I normally would ($22) but I had to have them.  Each egg is sitting in a little wire coil.
Gotta love ROOSTERS!

Yard Sale Finds 8-23-09

I have always wanted some of these balls in a bowl or basket. The balls were on clearence at Craft Warehouse for $1 and $1.25 each. The one covered with jute I made myself out of a styrophome ball. The basket I picked up at Goodwill for $1.

Tin Plaque $1

I found this new 8 1/2 x 10 picture frame at the local thrift store for $1.50. It's distressed black.

This large mirror was $2 at a yard sale.

We're getting close with our addition. I primed all 1300 square feet yesterday. It took me 6 hours with a spray gun. We also finished the deck off our new master bedroom. It won't belong now. I can't wait to decorate it with all of the thrifty treasures I've been accumulating the past several months!

Table Redo

When I bought it I intended to keep it as is. It just works better for me as a couch table. Sorry if this offends anyone out there. I bought the table at an awesome yard sale a few months back for $20.


I really needed a couch table and I didn't like how the table leaves covered the pretty legs so I removed the leaves, hinges and extra legs. It took about an hour and a half to sand it down really well. Then I glued this wood scrolly cut-out to the front and gave her two coats of black paint. I loooove the way it turned out. Now I will have to come up with a project for the extra legs and leaves.
