Score!! Yard Sale Finds

Hi everyone! TGIF!!! The weekend is here. Yard sales started today and I found some great things. This picture is a grouping of my "scores". I only bought three things that will need to be made over, the rest are ready for me to find a place for them somewhere in my home. I never seem to have enough space for display..

I can use these now with out doing anything them! Love the cutting board! I also found a very nice book about stenciling..something that I want to do in several of my rooms.
I was very happy when I found this one...my home was a Tollgate between the two towns. Love the pricing..especially the price for going to church!Posted by Picasa

Back of sign (info tag about Inn signs)

The wheelbarrow I believe I will prim, I can see it filled with Autumn goodies on my hutch table.

This pineapple is made out of plaster and is very heavy, I think I will paint the top green and prim the bottom. I will leave it hang out side at my backdoor.

Sorry about the picture being sideways...need to learn how to delete pictures when I upload one like this. When I followed blogger help to delete the photo it deletes the whole post. Have to figure out how to delete just the photo.

When I finish my make overs I will post at a later time. It will take me awhile. I take care of my Father who is bed fast. He will be 81 on the 30th of this month. He lives with me and my family and my living room has become his bedroom. Being that he can not get out of bed without help, I could not leave him in his bedroom upstairs. I am his sole caregiver (my parents have been divorced for over 40 years), so my time is very limited. After getting him cleaned and ready for bed at night, my "relax" time is sitting here at my computer and reading all of your blogs and getting new ideas for decorating. I just love reading about your crafts, re-do's and your lives, is very relaxing. That is one of the reasons that I haven't posted since last week, till I finish reading all of the posts, it is late. I have to tell you I am so glad that I found this "blogland"....it is fun!

I hope that this post finds all of you safe and sound. These storms that have been coming through our area and surrounding areas have been very destructive. I am thankful that we have not had any damage at our home, but friends and relatives have had trees down and loss of power. Some of my friends neighbors have lost the roof of their home and half of their barn had been blown away. Very close call!!

Maybe I will post again this weekend, I would like to try and get one of my re-do's finished. I love the completed result of the projects.

Until the next time!




  1. Wanda~ love your grouping of scores! That toll sign is awesome, and so is your baby Cash:) Aren't shepherds the best dogs!!! I'm sure your father appreciates all you do for him, what a sweet daughter you are:) Have a great weekend!!!

  2. Wow, you found so much. Good for you. It's so much fun to find things that you don't have to redo. I'm glad blogland gives you a relaxing rest. I'm sure you need it and that your father is so happy to have you. Take care.

  3. Hey Wanda!

    Great finds! I especially love the cutting board, toll sign and pineapple!

    You are a good daughter to care for your father. I try to take care of mine too, but he still lives in his own house. He is not ready to give up his independance yet. He turned 76 this past week and has terminal lung cancer and a weak heart. We are not promised tomorrow, so I try to do everything I can for him while I can. Our time together is precious. I'm sure you know exactly what I mean.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. You found some real prim treasures! :) Have a great weekend!

  6. Great to find your blog and you are right... you scored BIG TIME with those yard sale finds. I especially love the toll sign and that little wheelbarrow with the bowl...oh what great FALL goodies you could put in that. Possibilities are endless - ya know?

    Prim Blessings,
