I have been on the look out for a chandelier all summer. I never thought that I would find this beautiful chandy! I found this little gem at the first garage sale I went to on Saturday. The lady who sold it to me was so sweet. She told me that she really loved this chandelier but just didn't have room for it in her house. I assured her that it would be well loved. She sold it to me for $5.00. I just love the design of it, so pretty and elegant!
These lamp shades were bought at a different garage sale and I thought they might look nice on the chandelier. They will need a little embellishment but I think I can make it work. I bought them for $1.50.
I found this Pepsi crate wagon buried under a very strange, 1990's painted stuffed bunny. The bunny came with the crate (needless to say the bunny now lives at Goodwill). The crate with the goodwill bunny cost $5.00. I am not sure if I am going to leave it as a wagon or take the wheels off. I think it is kind of cute how it is.
Isn't this little bird cage adorable? I bought it for $.75, I think it will be cute for spring and summer decorations. I am not sure if it is going to remain white, I might have to add some color.
The next is a small Pfaltzgraff canister. I love the colors of it. IKEA has a bedspread that kind of matches it that I would love to buy. The canister cost 10 cents.
I am a big fan of sweet tea and I needed a new jug. I was so happy when I came across this cute watermelon one. It doesn't look like it has ever been used. I bought it for a quarter even though it was marked $.50 this couple said I could have it for a quarter.
This little guy was just too cute to walk past. I saw myself enjoying a lot of mornings drinking coffee with this little owl. The coffee glass was $.50.
I am always on the look out for holiday decorations. I saw this cute turkey that I think might use a table decoration during Thanksgiving. The turkey cost $.50.
Ok, a few more things! I hope I am not boring you too much. I love to make cards for others but do not like to spend the money on the tools it takes to create the cards. I found a fellow card maker's garage sale on Saturday and came away with a lot of great stuff. All of the stuff in these 2 pictures cost $5.00. You can't even buy one stamp at Hobby Lobby for $5.00. I love the stitched stamp!
