I’m back and a great week of yard sales.

I can’t believe it has been so long since my last post.  I had a lot on my plate in March and April and didn’t feel like I could take the time out to blog.  Then when things got easier in May, I wasn’t sure where to start.

 

We had our first vacation in 13 years the end of April and beginning of May.  It was great we went to New York City……and yes we took  all the kiddos.  We all loved it!  Our 4 year old summed it up well when as she was skipping down 5th Avenue she said “this is my kinda town!”

On our way back home we stopped at Ikea in Elizabeth,NJ and bought our new couch.  That is the closest Ikea to us and it is 4 hours away.  So I had never been before.  Since going all I can think about is how I am going to get back.  I seriously love that store!  Pink Puffy Heart love!

We also got a new camera right before we went.  It is a Cannon rebel, and I just love it.  I can’t wait to spend some time reading the manual and actually find out what it can do.  Maybe by next year I will have it done.

Four days after we got back from vacation my second son made his First Communion.  I know what was I thinking.  Luckily we didn’t have the party at our house.

It was an absolutely glorious day with friends and family.

Well after our busy beginning things  slowed down some.  Now we are into June and are looking forward to sixth grade graduation, kindergarten graduation and the end of school.

In the meantime I have managed to squeeze in some yard sales.  This weekend was particularly nice because my husband was able to come with me and we took the kids and made an outing  out of it.  Everyone found treasures and finished very happy.  It was also good because there were a ton of sales this weekend including a big neighborhood sale.

Here are some of my finds.

This vintage case was a quarter.  The top has some damage, I am going to try a magic eraser.  If that doesn’t work I my decoupage over it.

Some of it will be getting a makeover and some will be staying as is.  There is a bunch of vintage stuff including three hats.

Lastly I picked up this box of vintage photos from and estate sale for $30.  Not as thrifty as I like, but there are close to 50 pictures in there.  Most from turn of the last century, several are dated!

Well thanks for stopping by, and as I mentioned we got a new couch.  The first one we ever bought brand new.  That spurred on a living room makeover.  So stay tunned for that to come……….I promise!

  1. Good deal on the cute mirror and the candle holders! I think you might be decoupaging that old case- looks like magic marker! LOL But it should turn out great- fabric or cool paper graphics cover up a multitude of sins. :-) Visiting from Rhoda's.
