Home Is....A Wonderful Find for my girls....and For Me
I love finding great deals. I admit that I don't hit garage sales as much as I'd like (I hope to change that this year though). I also love the Home Goods store and Ross, Goodwill, even Good Friends who have something to part with, or anywhere that gives me amazing finds at great deals!
I'll show you a few things I have found that I really like.
I loved reading Sandy's post today because oftentimes I see an item and think "that is so ugly". I don't take time to see past the ugliness to see it's potential. I wonder how many treasures I've passed up over the years.
Over the years, especially when my girls were young I'd find books, puzzles, games and clothes. Now, it's usually things for the house, or books for me!
Head over to Reluctant Entertainer to see what other people have found.
Photos: top to bottom...1) When we were first building our home my pastors wife asked if I wanted these chairs. They were stained at the time. I added some white paint and really like them alot. 2) I found this vase at Ross (it had a slight crack) so I think it was only $4. 3) Before we moved, there was a garage sale at the house accross the street from where we were living. This desk was $20 and I knew it would fit perfect in the girls room...I still haven't painted it, but oh well. 4) At the same sale, I found these really cool bowls for $4. 5) I bought these two chairs over 7 years ago at a garage sale...perfect when the girls were smaller. The table that came with it died, but I decided to throw some paint on them and just use them for decor here at the property. 6) I found this old wine barrel in a barn at my inlaws property. My FIL cut it in half and reinforced it. 1/2 for me and 1/2 for my MIL. It belonged to her father, and still smelled fermented when he brought it to me.
