A wonderful surprise from Ms. Debbie and my weekend garage sale finds!


































































Hello there Summer dwellers.....I thought I would show you a sweet surprise from Ms. Debbie from http://ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com/ she won my last give-away and was so kind and sent me something back! Of course there are CHERRIES...too cute. Had fun playing with them on my table with my rooster. I do believe she made the tablerunner! Thank-you soooo much Debbie girl! I LOVE them all! I also thought I would share the few items I got from the "lady down the street"....sounds like a paper back novel from the 70's doesn't it? I could have bought MANY items from her but I was good ....GOOD for me that is. Since I was purging my house...I felt it ironic that I was adding more things to the fold. SOOO I was selective. I LOVE The little table....6.00....it will get a redo here shortly...to white....it fits perfectly next to my wicker chair in the bedroom. I adore old tablecloths...and around here they can be VERY spendy in the antique stores...so 3.00 made me shout with glee...(in my head that is) when I saw this one in such good shape. I got three of the same plates....25 cents...since they have some chips...But it adds character to this girls way of thinking. AND another old flower frog....because you can't just stop with one, or two, or three....and for 25 cents I am not gonna break the bank. AND I have found the most PERFECT BLUE chair....do you see her.....way up there......I don't have to do a thing to her....she is a perfect faded chippy blue....she is glorious in her chippiness.... 4.00 big smackaroos for that perfect blue. Then the last wee pic there....is a wee aqua fan......it is a mini blue fan that matches my BIG blue fan.....3.00....a wee price for a wee fan. I think the heat is getting to me....because the heat is a wee bit high.....ok enough already. Well those were my finds.....I wanted to let you all know PLEASE oh please come back on Monday...I have a BIG to me announcement to make and would love to share it with you all! In honor of it....I will be doing a give-away so....you will want to come back for it! This weekend we are off to go camping for a few days...so I will be back on Monday! Have a wonderful Summer weekend all! XoXo, Cherry

What a darling rooster! Love your yard sale finds, too. I haven't gone to one so far this summer...always something else to be done!

I always enjoy my visits to your blog...you are so talented with your crafting and your pictures are such eye candy!

Look at all your great finds! Even when you are paring down, there are some things you just can't pass up! I especially love the fan, we've been looking for a bigger one like that. They are pricey though, great price on yours! Love the rooster too. Can't wait to see the table after its makeover. Have a super fun weekend Cherry!

How sweet of Debbie, you must have been so thrilled unwrapping your gift. Wow, good finds. But I have to say I am glad I am not the only one who keeps buy cheap vintage finds, while trying to get rid of stuff ; -) Clarice

Beautiful finds ! Me and my sis found a chippy farmhouse table w/drop leaves and a great old dresser by the side of the road last night. So exciting.

I need to take my Hunter (he's 12) camping. He'd love that. Have fun.

I love everything! Especially that gorgeous blue chair and the linens! I think the key is being selective and buying things you really love and know you can use - you did good!

Love the Table!! ... and the price would make me so ridiculously giddy! People would wonder what's wrong with me...I would have to say I got bitten by the bargain bug!

Have a great trip!! That picture with your little man is so cute!!

Great finds! That table runner from Debbie is wonderful!

Christina said...

Some great things. Love the wee fan. I have never seen an old fan at a sale of any kind. I'm missing out.

The plates are great---chips and all. Someone in my family had plates like that, but I don't remember who.

Great finds. Always love your pictures.
