Garage Sale Beauties

A friend and I went garage sale-ing last week and boy oh boy I hit it big! I spent around $30 and brought home...



a bunch of odds and ends and an antique bread pan [that now sits on our kitchen counter and holds coffee and the coffee grinder]


metal spice tins [that now sit above our oven]


an old match book holder [that is now next to our white board and holds dry erase markers]


jugs and jars [that are now on top our fridge and in our living room]


yellow salt and pepper mills [that are on top of our fridge as well]


an adorable coloring book and crayon holder [that is waiting to be redone for a little family friend]


some old tool boxes [that hold our games and are sitting pretty on a shelf]


sweet little numbers [that are waiting for the perfect project]


I think she approves of my finds. She laid in the toolbox all day.

Check out my blog party page for a list of the blogs I post to!

  1. Wow!! You got some great finds!! I can't believe you got all that for $30!! I am never good at garage sales or thrift stores because I have a hard time seeing the potential!! Can't wait to see what you do with those numbers! They are so cute!
