On My Own

I am so excited to get to participate in Rhoda's Thrifty Treasure's. (I don't know if I am linking correctly - we will see if she has to delete me!) See, I have been involved in moving and packing, moving and unpacking a.l.l. summer long! Uhg! But we are moved and the kids are back in school and healthy, and all is well....(I am knocking on wood here).

Anyway, I had to fly solo when I went treasure huntingn on sister was busy, my mom was busy and my aunt...well yeah, she was busy too...but I was going through withdrawals and need to, I went...alone...all by can sing that one if you want...I do. BUT, LOOK WHAT I FOUND!!!!

Ok this sewing table, mind you I have been stalking blog land for sewing tables, $20. I have seen them online for as much as 99.99 - yep, just about peeeeeeed I was so happy. :)

This (still in the plastic) canvas that measure 36x40 (My sister and I have a special project in mind for canvas') $5, oh yeah, come to mama....very happy cause when I talked to the seller she wanted $10, I said I would think about it and she immediately dropped it to $5...oh yeah, come to mama!

Sorry about the pic on this, I tried to fix it, but....Anyway I loved this purse ($1). It was at an estate sale that the poor guy was trying to empty his mom's house and the tears were just streaming down his face...won't forget that....

Loved this Pier One vase - everyone needs a little POP of RED. $2, Scrolly Shelf $2 (thought that was a little pricey but I have the perfect spot for it and I knew it as soon as I saw it. And then in the background is a little "gold leaf." And I have a project for that too! (.50)

Cute Cute Cute - both $3 - did I mention that they are Cauuutte

Now these have a little bit of history (although it doesn't involve me). The seller wanted $10 for the big one and $5 for the little one, I asked if she would take $10 for both and she said $12, I said sold and then she told me that she got them when she was in HOLLAND on a foreign exchange program....who knew? But they look fabulous on my huge porch! A little bit of history never hurt anyone, eh?

What do you think? How did I do? Let me know? Missed my peeps, but thought I did ok....On My Own. B:)

Great finds! The story about the man crying as his mothers items are sold, really plucked at my heart strings. I feel guilty when I purchase things at an Estate sale. I always want to assure the sellers (family) that they are going to a great home!
