{Yard Sale} was calling my name!!!

Okay, I must admit...I had no intentions on going to another yard sale over the weekend but I tell you the truth when I say that I think I heard the sound of something beckoning me...COME....COME....COME
Okay, now I am scaring myself! Truth is I just wanted to go to another yard sale (ha!) So, me and two of the grandgirls went a hunting for something good. 

And this was the first beauty I came across! A little cleaning and a fresh coat of paint and I think I might just have me a gem!


I NEVER turn down goblets like these. I love them and they are my favorite to use. I just added 3 more to my collection.....


And you all know I love me a cute basket!


Isn't this cute? I actually think I am going to use this as a planter...or maybe in the guest bathroom to hold shampoos, soaps and etc. (Or maybe my flavored teas)


LOVED this little bucket! Think I will re-pot some herbs in it!


And  wouldn't you just know that I would spot a set of dishes! In case I have not told you this before...."My name is Cindy and I'm a dishaholic". Who can turn down white dishes, right?
I just had to have them.


Grape leaf and rose pattern by Gibson. I will be on the lookout for this pattern.


These are the two cuties that tagged along with Nana to yard sales. Of course they got to go to McDonald's so it was worth it to them.


And I only spent $10! YEP, $10 
Now McDonald's was another story.....Have you seen the price of hamburgers these days? 

I'm joining Kathy today for her home and garden Thursday over at http://www.adelightsomelife.com/2015/06/home-and-garden-thursday-102.html#comment-70582

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. Okay, so I just don't get the "only spent $10" bit and you come home with all those goodies. The dishes alone should have been that at least!! You done good, milady! I just spent the past two weekends with my own yard sales. I've decided to hook up with friends--much better plan. Each weekend we packed the cars with tent, tables, chairs, and as many boxes of stuff as we could fit. Headed over to the yard sale party (different place each Saturday), set up in an hour and had a blast! Made a little spending money for out trip to see the grand-girl next week--and hubby's 60th this month. I'm selling my 98 piece Farbarware Dorchester dishes set after 20 years and looking for a smaller set with vintage something. I've got bits and pieces of a couple patterns I love, but never had the room to expand. Now, I do! Yay!
    On book tour this Saturday--seeking the Lord's blessings in all things--even yard sales. So great to post again and reconnect in Blogland after a hectic couple of months since my book came out. More busy ahead, but praying balance.
    Joy!

    1. Kathy, I got the dishes for $3. When she said $3 I actually (almost) ran to the car with them! LOL! Glad you made a little money off your stuff Kathy and I know you will enjoy visiting with the grandgirl. Praying God's favor on you friend!

  6. Your clock and bucket are calling my name!! The same thing happened to me today. I was all set to stay home for the day and NOT go to any sales. Then my daughter texted me that there were a ton of sales all in a row nearby. I was there. I didn't get much but what I did is fabulous!

  8. Those dishes are beautiful, Cindy! I have to admit that I am a minimalist and don't have many things, but I do love sales like this and I so enjoy your posts about them and seeing what you find!!! McDonald's and everything else is so expensive these days, but I am glad you all enjoyed each other's company and you all look happy. :)

  9. Hi Cindy,
    Your garage sale finds are great and for a great price. The clock is really nice, I love walnut wood. And the wexford goblets, I have a set of those and a matching pitcher, I think they look so elegant. I like that bucket too! Your grandgirls are adorable, pretty just like their grandma! Yay, for McDonald's right?
    Have a great weekend and thanks so much for your recent visit to my blog.

  12. Cindy, you always find the neatest things! I am in love with that clock. The best thing though is the time spent with those precious little girls, and yes, hamburgers are not the 'cheap' meal anymore.
