Yardsales are starting!

After taking a long break from yardsaling before the Holidays, they are now starting up again. I ventured out to 2 this a.m. and came home with a few little treasures. I know many of you love these deals too, so wanted to share them with you. This pretty glass vase/candleholder was 50 cents. I think it will look great with shells in it.
Glass lid/cloche was $1.00. I can use it somewhere.
I couldn't pass up this cute little Bible verse painted on wood for 50 cents. After all, it's my favorite scripture in the Word! I'll add a ribbon to hang it with.
And this cute seashell soap holder was 50 cents. That's all for now folks! Happy Weekend! This is my second post today, so don't miss The Corner Cafe below.

I love the glass vase. You will get a lot of miles of use out of that! Have a great rest of the weekend :-) Rosie

Charlotte said...

Great finds. I haven't been yardsaleing (is there such a word) in a long time. Should get out there and look around. You never know what you might find.
I tagged you today to do a meme on eight things about you that readers don't know. You can play the game if you want to. If not, don't feel obligated. It's hard to know who to tag for these things.
Have a great weekend.

Rhoda, You sure do find some beautiful things - yay for you! Our garage sale season hasn't really started yet here in MI (not where I live anyhow) but I'm looking forward to it!

Blessings to you :)

Very great finds! I'm eager to see what you decide to do with the glass dome --- it's lovely and what a buy!

Brenda said...

great deals,,I headed off to work on Saturday and thought of all my friends that would be out getting treasures.
I posted a pick of the stone brian used for that walkway I promised to show so come over and look.
I have you decided yet what you are gonna do? I need a cheaper verrsion also.i am wanting to do something on the ground beside my patio to get my big table on so we can use the patio for some comfy chairs and a piece to put food when we cook this summer.

Awww. I didn't get to go this weekend. You found some neat things.

I agree with you on the verse. That's my favorite, too.

How's the business going? You may have mentioned it, but I haven't had a chance to read blogs lately. Just doing a few drop ins today.

Brenda said...

Rhonda I hear you. I about flipped when i heard he paid over 500.00 for a walkway in the BACK lol. Do you have a pic of your friends. That may work for my table area. I don't wanna send much because later I want tp add on to the wood deck,but for now just get this big iron table off my wood patio.

Rue said...

I've been looking everywhere for one of those glass domes! I had one on my cake plate and I dropped it in the sink when I was cleaning it :( You've given me hope that there's more out there :)

Peggy said...

Rhoda, I love your blog and can't wait everyday to see the wonderful things you write about. I have been blogging for about a year but have some technical questions about the blog layout,etc. Could you or anyone else out there steer me to someplace that would help me to make the layout of my blog better. You can email me at bfdgirl@yahoo.com. I would sure appreciate some help. I try to learn from all the blogs I read. You girls certainly know your stuff! Thanks friends, :)Peggy

Yard sales and garage sales are just beginning to start again here, too. I haven't been to any yet as I've been trying to clear out some things I already have and not wanting to add a lot more to it....just yet. HOWEVER, after seeing all these great things you found, I am wanting to go thrift shopping soon.

At what point do you not buy something? Your house is "nice," but where do you draw a line?

joan said...

Rhoda,

I love all of your great bargains. I will have to hit a few yardsales this year after seeing all the nice goodies you have gotten. Have a great week and visit with your family.

Mrs. B said...

I love your yard sale finds, especially that glass candle holder/vase and the cloche! I am determined to start checking out yardsales again when the weather turns. The good yard sales are usually few and far between around here, but I'm inspired by all your great finds!

I'm so happy for you that our favorite season has arrived in your town! ;-)
