Every year I tell myself I’m going to save up for Memorial Weekend yard-saling. Well, like always, it didn’t really work out, but I was lucky enough to be working the coffee bar at our church yard sale, and I got some pretty sweet stuff at even sweeter prices! All the items I found were things I had been looking for/wanting for a while, so it felt like a real blessing when it was put right in front of my eyes :) God is good!
This is the first summer I really get to enjoy the beautiful outdoors at my house, even though I’ve been here 2 years already. Being pregnant, and caring for a newborn really don’t allow for much gardening time, but now that little miss is a walking talking toddler, she enjoys it almost as much as I do.
I seriously paid a dollar for all of these books! If you are curious about what to plant in your climate zone, or which plants do best in pots etc, I highly recommend the Western Garden Book, which you can buy on ebay for about $5.
If you are a fan of pinterest, you have probably seen a million and one wasy to use this awesome piece of junk! You can see my favorite repurposes for a hard rake here, here, and here. For now I just stick it on the wall near the front door in an attempt to solve the ongoing “Have you seen my keys?” problem.
God must know about my newfound love of all things southwestern because this little gem was stickin out like a sore thumb, just begging for me to buy it. See more of my southwestern style inspiration here, and here. With all the unwanted items in the world, I find it hard to purchase anything brand new. I love finding unique things at unbeatable prices, and giving them new life and purpose.
Happy hunting my thrifty friends!
