Tuesday Toots-Yard Sale Loot

I just so happened to be driving down the road when I spotted this little yard sale! HEE-HEE!

Of course I had to stop! RIGHT????

Spotted this cute little tea cup and saucer for 50 cents! Just had to have it.

Isn't this just too cute? Haven't decided what I want to do with it yet. I bet I come up with something though. Only 50 cents!

Spotted this jewelry box.

My first thoughts; This thing needs a good cleaning.

The more I looked at it the cuter it became! It sort of had that vintage look to it and the ideas for use started flowing.

I really liked the latch. And...for $1.00....hey, if it winds up in the grandbabies play room then the grandgirls will be tickled.

This little "Family" stone was actually sitting inside the jewelry box. So when I went to pay the young woman for the jewelry box I handed her the stone and said, "This was inside the box". She said, "Well, looks like you've already got some jewelry in your box". That was all she said.

I didn't think any more about that comment until I got almost home that day. Funny how the Lord uses little things like this to speak to our hearts. "Family"---Jewelry---Jewel!

That is exactly what my family is...They are the jewels of my life! How blessed I am indeed.

I hope you are feeling blessed this week my friend. God is good and I love the way He uses the little things of  this life to show Himself mighty!

Have a good week!

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. You always get such great deals! I'm still intimidated by yard sales because I feel bad if I don't buy anything. Silly me!! You make me want to get out and thrift!!!!

  4. My favorite thing of all is that sweet little stone! How nice that she didn't want it and you get to keep it. Perfect!
