My best yard sale find yet!

 

I went to yard sales Friday and Saturday this week! Friday I scored an antique dressing table with a mirror, a great gold antique mirror, a chunky frame and two really awesome chairs!

Better yet…. Saturday I scored a 11 x9 Pottery Barn rug in awesome condition. I have no area rugs in my house because I am too cheap! You can’t even find a decent medium sized one for less than a few hundred dollars! The lady paid $1100 for it and I got it for $75!!!! She didn’t have room for it in her new house. I was a little worried I didn’t either. I thought it would be great in my family room but it was twice the size. It looks great in here! I couldn’t be more excited!

I have vowed to stay away from yard sales until after Serendipity. I have a garage full of projects and will be cranking them out in the next 9 days so stay tuned!

I also got my zinnia seeds planted for the year. I can’t wait until they look like mine did last year!
