A Little Bit of Yard Sailing

I was only able to do a little fast yard sailing(mine own spelling) this past weekend, but that did not stop me.  Oh no sir. 
Friday after the kids got done with their swim lessons at NOON we stopped at two.
The first one was just we just happened to pass by and stopped.

I got these two lamp shades for $1.00.  I am going to give them a makeover and use them on a set of lamps for my bedroom.

I also got these cute shoes both are from American Eagle.  The sandals I wore this morning to church and loooove them.  However I didn’t look at the size of the flats, and well they are to small(size 9) so they are going to be listed on Ebay.  Oh well.  I paid $4.00 for the shoes.

The next sale we went to was pretty far out, but I was ready for a little drive.  I didn’t know it by the add but it was a sweet little old lady that was having a barn sale.  I am not sure if it was because it was so far out or what but she still had a lot left when I got there and she had priced everything really really well.

This was the first thing I saw when I walked up the driveway.  A cute little stool for on top of my Hoosier cabinet.  $1.50.  I was so excited, I have been on the lookout for something like this.  The best part is it is RED!

I find this rigged up, broken Pepsi crate wagon.  The only parts that are broken are the rigged up ones.  No problem nothing a screwdriver can’t fix.  He says “$5.00” I say “how about $3.00”.  He says “sure”.    Sold!  Wait to you see what I have planned for this!
