Yard Sale Goodies

Do you like yard sales and great finds as much as I do?  I stumbled upon a wonderful yard sale this weekend after dropping a kid off at work.  They had been selling for two and a half hours when I arrived and claimed that their good stuff was gone.  With a quick glance, I knew that wasn't entirely true as this quilt caught my eye from across the yard.
Then these hydrangeas called to me, reminding me of my favorite Hero Arts Hydrangea stamp.

Its too bad I dropped it on my kitchen floor, breaking the front plastic shortly after bringing it home.  I gathered the pieces back together, a little clear tape on the side and it works!!

As I went to pay, this sole old book, a 1917 textbook, caught my eye amongst all sorts of magazines. I felt obligated to pick it up and place it with my quilt and hydrangeas.

My vintage haul cost me less than $5!  Oh yeah, baby!!


  1. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a kind comment. You sure did snag some great finds...I love "rummaging"!

  2. I'd say you got all the good stuff! Well done, and sounds like a fun time!
