I did not find Lucas at a yard sale but he found a back pack for 25 cents he has carried around all weekend.

Another frame for .50 I painted with a picture of me. It sits on my husband's night stand.
Old jewelry for a $1.00 found at swap meet, I will use this for a project.
Silver tray at Goodwill, syrup pitcher antique mall and little dish holds salt on stove.
Silver tray found at Goodwill, old spools and buttons.
I love summer time, all the yard sales and swap meets and I just have to go to them you know. I had an auction last October and got rid of a ton of stuff because our plan is to move to our big farm next year. More about that later. Anyway I am trying not to replace all the stuff I sold but it's just hard when you see all these bargains, right?? Here are a few things I have picked up in the last couple of weeks.


  1. I love all your finds. I wish I had that butter dish it is perfect. Can't wait to see what you will use the vintage jewelry for:)

  2. Looks like some pretty good "stuff"!! :)

  3. You found some great steals! Lucas is a sweet little guy. I missed some of your posts so scrolled down to see them. You have some great collections and unique finds in your home. We saw 2 wild turkeys on our way to church this morning! I have never seen them here before so was quite shocked. Your photos of the turkey hunt are beautiful (sunrise on the pond). Blessings, Pamela

  4. I love your finds, I have a cow dish too, but it's packed away with things from my former (unmarried) life... it inspired me to look for it next weekend!

  5. GREAT finds -- I am always buying frames and re-doing them -- I was spraying thrifty frames black yesterday :)


  6. I love your cow butter dish! I just picked up a cow creamer this past weekend!
