Yard Sale Finds

I had to share my treasures I found at yard sales last weekend. Now I've got the bug for yard sales again, to my husbands dismay... I came home with my van loaded. I went out with a mission to find things to help organize my art studio and I found quite a few things that will do nicely. I think the most I paid for anything was 5 bucks. Yeee ha!

Enjoy :)

A vignette of some of my pretties
A close up of a pretty roses dish. I love dishes with these romantic roses on them
I loved the lines of this tin candle holder (I think it's tin b/c its very light weight, not sure)
Pretty glass candy dish... it sparkles!
A sweet child's book of poems
Close up of wall hanging drawers that have a place to write contents on the pull, and a pretty frame
Little white organizer with a place to show off some photos

Now peek into my soon to be used new studio room for the big stuff like this great chair I got for $2
I'm thinking of painting this chair antique white to lighten it up in that room. Ample room for my tush.
Now for the big storage solution for $5! Will look tons better with that antiquey looking white paint.
The bookcase pulls out like a secretary. I think this is a home made job. It's a little rough but will look good painted.
One last picture of happiness...
Make it a terrific day!

  1. Awesome treasures! Enjoy gussying up your studio. What a sweet photo of boy and dog. True love! Theresa

  2. Great finds Jaime! I especially love the bookcase, it will look so cool painted...can't wait to see it! Asher is so cute!!!

  3. Just had to pop in to say "hi". What fabulous finds!! I especially love the chair and future work space!

  4. Wow, Jaime, that bookcase/secretary/all purpose storage piece is gorgeous. What an amazing find and looks like you even have the perfect spot for it. Even though I love antiques (true, polished wood antiques), there is nothing a little paint won't cure. I also like the piece that has the drawer. Guess I'm really drawn to wood.

  5. jamie you did good...i love everything we are alot alike...and only paying five bucks that just makes me smile....thanks for your post too.
