Yard Sailing and more "Braggin' Buys"!!!

Hi there!

Well, Gilbert has decided that we will be doing
a LOT of yard sailing, this summer -
weather permitting, of course!

Last weekend, the 18th, we left
early Saturday morning and I
hit the jackpot, for once!!!!

This gorgeous yarn.....

This lovely fabric....
(Note: I've already made curtains with the
fabric on the far right - the "grape" fabric!)

And BONUS!!!!
This lovely "Sparkly" fabric!!!!

All of this, I haggled for....

20 bucks!!!!

Okay, it would have come to $21.50,
but I offered to pay 20 and she took it!!!

That same day, a few yard sales later....

Gilbert picked up this smaller
computer for 10 bucks.
He was quite pleased with his buy!


At one of our Garage Sales,
Gilbert found this vintage
Tim Horton's cup.

Once home, he checked Ebay
and found a similar one, listed there!

"Tim Horton's vintage cup"

Yep! He got his for only 25 cents!

Now, YESTERDAY, we went Yard Sailing, again!

Picked up the "Lord of the Rings" DVD,
for 1 dollar
and a pencil container chocked FULL
of laces and ribbons, but mostly
embroidery floss!!!

That too, was only 1 dollar!

During my mini vacation,
Gilbert and I had tried to find
some spaghetti bowls... without luck.

Imagine our surprise when we came
across these gorgeous bowls,
yesterday, at a garage sale!!!

2 bucks PLUS we got the
parmasan and oil jars, too!

Hoping you ALL have a wonderful week!
