My Yard Sale Treasures

One Man's trash is my Bliss!!!

so I'm on my way to run an errand and I get totally distracted by a Yard sale sign down the road from me....my two smallest children screaming in the back seat" yes a yard sale mommy turn the car around" ( so proud to be their mom, I have taught them well). off the beaten path we went. Here is a snap shot or two of what i found. then I will tell you how much I paid.....

OK ready for the final price for my bounty? ("I'm ready, I'm ready" -spongebob)


-yes, for all of it! I paid - .50 cents for the old chair( one of my many new redo projects in the future. -$1.00 for the antique chandelier (see close up shot... gorgeous and perfect for my old house!)

I also paid only .50 cents again for the wire basket/planter.

and my son got his own jeep (just like his Poppi (my daddy) I paid more than i wanted to but hey i got the power wheels minus battery for only $2.

Man i am not a patient girl by nature. but the more the holy spirit has led me to be more patient, the blessing sure have flown. I say this because I'm a instant gratification type. It has been so gratifying to yard sale and goodwill hunting to have this lesson taught to me. I have been able to find most of what I want for my house and what my kids want without giving into the debt trap to provide it for them.

I love to see how a little lesson in patience has created so much Bliss in my manor!!
