I wasn't sure if I was going to go out to the sales this weekend. One, it was HOT - like above 86 at 7am and projected to get to over 100 by mid day. Two, it started raining at like 7:30 which made me reconsider the trip even more. But by 9:30 it had cleared up and I was itching to get out. Plus, I had to go to the grocery store anyways. So my plan was to stop at any yard sale I saw between the house and the grocery store. And the plan worked! Check out my finds!

The first stop was one that I had run by the signs for on Friday morning, so I was looking forward to stopping by and checking it out.  I really wish it hadn't rained because they had some pretty frames for a $1 a piece but the mats were ruined and I wasn't up to having to get 11x14 mats to replace them.  But I did find some other fun treasures.

First up, I got this pitcher for just 50 cents.  Yep - it is ugly as sin with those sunflowers.  (My apologies if you love sunflowers!)  But not to worry - that's nothing a little spray paint can't fix!  Want to see the results?  Click over to see my new "Heirloom" Vase!

Next up I found this classic wide low bowl.  Nice white with just a touch of glaze.  For $1 I was sold.  See it in my Living Room Update.

Finally - I found this shabby chic wire basket.  I thought it would be perfect for some decorative grapevine balls I picked up at a yard sale about a month ago.  I love the finish.  And for $4 - it was a keeper!  Check it out in my TV Stand Vignette!

I left there and hit up a couple more.  The last one I stopped at had a beautiful rug that would have been perfect for the guest room - but it had gotten rained on so I didn't want to risk it.  Instead - I picked up this pair of crackled glass votive holders for $3.  I think these are going to look perfect in my bathroom on the vanity!

So what about you?  Find anything fun this weekend?

Linking this up to the Thrifty Treasures Party with Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality!

I love everything you found! I'm not a sunflower person either so bring on that spray paint for that pitcher! :) That basket is great and I bet you could decorate it in different ways based on the season.
