I love the new people you meet...or the old friends you see!
This is my mom on the right...and her friend Carol at our last Fancy Flea Market/Yard Sale.

Here's a little recap of some of my favorite yard sale transformations...

Check out my new favorite HERE!

Some of the most beautiful pieces in our home and some I have sold,
have been found at yard sales.

Yep...I kept that one!

Here are some others...

I was done for my day and headed out of town...and snagged this one at a yard sale just outside of town.  Glad I did!!

I spotted this beauty and had to have it.  I brought it home and had it sold before I even painted it!

Here is another almost freebie...honestly!

A friend gave me a footstool...and this turned into a cute little set!

See why I LOVE yard sales???

So many FUN things just waiting to be cleaned up and loved again!!

It is SO easy to keep great, old, vintage and quality made furniture...and make it your own with a new paint job, new upholstery or just a good cleaning!

I have a pile of stuff in my garage waiting for me to paint...better get goin'!

I hope you have a GREAT day!!

Love & Junk~

    1. Thank you, Elizabeth! I look forward to 4H with our two girls...and we LOV the dairy life!!

      Good for your son!!
