It was a pretty slow weekend for me this time. I think the heat is getting to all of us about now. This week's finds are not that many and were all over the place, starting with this framed watercolor of legendary Alabama football coach, Bear Bryant, whom my hubby loves and reveres, so this is now in his office. It was $10 and I’m not positive, but think it might be an original. It sure looks like it could be when I took it out from behind the glass. It’s signed by artist Peggy Sherry, who I found out is from Kentucky and is a portrait watercolor artist. That’s about all I found out about her, but I’d say she is quite talented. This is a wonderful rendering. I would think if it was a print, it would be numbered.
This picture really completes the wall of Alabama football memorabilia I have been adding in there, one yardsale treasure at a time. I think it looks pretty snazzy and it makes the hubby happy to be surrounded by his beloved Roll Tide!
At an estate sale, I found this little blue jar for $1, another to add to my blue collection.
At the same sale, this large bird feeder was $6. It’s all cedar and has weathered outside already. I thought my hubby would like it, but he doesn’t want me to fool with putting it up outside since we already have a bird feeder, but I have an idea for it. I might even clean it really good and bring it inside and use it up on a shelf somewhere. I've got an idea about putting a plant in it & taking out the plexiglass. The roof is my favorite part.
That’s all I found this week, except I did find a Wilson tennis racket for $1. I was just talking to a friend of mine at the gym about playing tennis sometime and since I sold my old tennis racket before we moved here, mentioned that I’d have to get another one. So, yardsales it is and for $1, I can stand that and didn't even have to look hard for one. Once again, it seems that when I need to find something, there it is! And cheap. That's my favorite part about yardsales.
So, link up YOUR finds to Mr. Linky and let’s see what everyone found this week. Remember to link back to THIS post from your thrifty post and be sure to add your permalink (your thrifty post link) and not just your blog link. Thanks for playing!
As summer continues with this brutal heat we are having, I think my enthusiasm may start to wane for getting out there every weekend, but if I don’t get out there, I’ll continue to have the party through the summer for those who still want to participate.
