It was a fabulous Saturday of GARAGE SALE-ING. A very nice area near our home here in Orange County had their community sale this weekend. We got an early start and although it was throughout their whole town, we never made it out of one particular wealthy neighborhood - It was like shopping at TJMaxx Home Goods. I went with the idea that I was only going to purchase things that had an immediate purpose and location once I brought it home - No more storing things in my horrendous garage. With that in mind, I focused on the exterior of the home. Hawaii has me rearing to go for summer!
Although I can't seem to keep a plant or flower alive for the life of me, I found this plant stand for $7
If this turquoise color ever becomes repulsively out of style - I am doomed!
And if anyone has some suggestions for plants/flowers for someone with a black thumb rather than green, pass on some advice please!
"No, I'm not getting a bird" was my response to my husband when he questioned this purchase
- Husbands just don't see the creativity in pieces all the time, right?
It is a real bird cage and I plan to doctor it up with a fake bird at some point but for the time being, I had to change the color and find a place in the front entry way.
Green - Gone.Yes to Colonial Red.
(this black chest is actually an old toolbox that I bought at a garage sale almost ten years ago.)
At an earlier sale in March, this little guy came home with me for my girls - The guy bought it at ZGallery and gave it to me for $2
as did this "thing" which I love. I don't know if I should use it as a planter or what?
any ideas? front porch, back patio?
Useful treasures. Well, at least pretty ones as I see it.
My husband might debate me on that one!
Happy Day Everyone!
