Just Tickled!

My daughter, youngest son and I went to visit my Dad
and were lucky enough to hit a few primo Yard Sales along the way.

Now, we live in a small town so we can get excited by the littlest thing,
like Mr Pickle standing on the corner!!

We aren't lucky enough to have a Mr. Pickle Sandwich shop in our town :~(  LOL

One of the Yard Sales we hit was next to these critters. Aren't they awesome?! Can you believe they are carved with a chainsaw?

Ok, time to show my haul!

Aren't these lovely? The 2 Candeliers ~ will end up on eBay.
$2 each for the stand and Candeliers, Book .50

The plant stand is MINE!

The Tablecloth on the left will go with my Kitchen Makeover (if I ever get it done), 2 oilcloth tablecloths (one has bunnies for Easter, great for the outside table), $1 each. 2 flats = tons of Christmas Cookie Cutters/Pancake Molds (any and all ideas will be appreciated!) .10 each, 5 boxes of new Snowflake Lights, $1 each, wall lamp $1, gold leaf garland .50, topiary $1, bag of Rosehips .50, oval Cloche .50, Mary Higgins Clark (my daughter loves her and collects her books) hardbacks $1 each, odds and ends .50 each.

A tote (you know me and totes, I never met one I didn't like!) .25,
Great old books with awesome graphics I hope to share with you, $1 each,
and old Eye Wash bottle (too cool) $1, old kitchen utensils .25 each, AND looky at that old blow dryer!! Can you belive it still works? It has a cold, hot switch and to turn it off and on you plug or unplug $3. 

The green tin will be filled with Oranges for a Holiday Gift .50, a box of bells .10, a clock I plan to makeover .50, and why I bought that fake cake I do not know! .25

And the best I saved for last! When I saw her I thought my heart was going to jump out of my chest!  I was brave and asked how much.....knowing it would be most likely out of my price range. When she said $3, I picked her up so fast I almost dropped her!!

Isn't she just the most amazing thing?

I love her lead panes

in all her chippy glory

Even the Mr. loves her!
I really checked her out and found a small price tag that read $45!
 I'm hoping to incorporate her into the Kitchen Makeover,
if I ever finish the cabinets and are able to move on to the decorating!
Yes, I'm tickled to say the least!

It is always so hard to say goodbye to Yard Sale Season. Each weekend brings it closer to an end. And each weekend I rush out to find that one last Treasure.


  1. Oh my goodness, girl, you hit the jack pot! I love those candle holders and plant stand. Nice finds. Your comments on your kitchen cracked me up. I am very curious to see your crazy solution for your cabinets. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do, right?

  2. I would have grabbed that window too! Gorgeous!

  3. You HIT the mother lode, my friend! Great finds. Dying to see what you do with all of these items.

    Have a lovely crisp autumn day.

  4. Hey Deb. What a lotta loot for little cash. I'm looking forward to the after on that window. What a fun find. We don't really have a hard line yard sale season in Florida but I can tell you I wish we have milder seasons so I could enjoy it. At one point we just stay in the a/c/.
    Thanks for sharing your hall.
    Have a Sweet Sunday...Tracy

  5. Oh my, what a beauty you have there in that window...looove the candle holders too!


  6. Love the window. I can't wait to see how you incorporate it into your kitchen! Thanks for stopping by my blog last week. Nice to meet you.



I'd love for you to leave me a comment. Helps me to know I'm not totally crazy...like my family thinks I am!
