Fall

Talon sent this to me this morning...
It's the tree in our front yard. Isn't it crazy how you can completely miss beautiful things if you are not paying attention?

The Anatomy of a Yard Sale Trip

This post is mainly just a collection of photos with prices on them but I thought it would be fun to break down my yard sale trip I mentioned here. I hope it brings inspiration to get out there and dig for awesome deals! Without further ado...my Saturday yard sale finds....
So, for a total of 139.75 all of this greatness came home with me:) Get out there and go yard sale'n!!

Portugal Print.

Have I ever been to Portugal? No. Do I want to go to Portugal? Yes and No. I would like to travel anywhere but I cannot say that Portugal is number one on my list. Did I need to buy a Portugal map print at the yard sale last Saturday? OF COURSE.I think I paid 10 or so dollars for this. Probably a little much for a framed print of Portugal but I've got a thing for map and ship photos. I need to get a grip. But since I did make the purchase I thought I would spruce it up a bit with some spray paint. First, I taped off the edges of the frame since it did not appear to be an easy task to pop out the print and mat from the back. Then I taped card stock paper over the rest of the frame to avoid any over spray and extra scrubbing in the end....Portugal now lives in our kitchen....so I can wonder why I purchased a print of Portugal every time I walk in to this room....It still amazes me what a coat of white spray paint can do to anything....I just recently updated another art print here. It's nice to see walls in our house get a little love. We have been in this house for almost two years and still have many bare walls. I like to hold out and wait though...not throw stuff up there. I'm hoping it pays off in the long run...not swapping things out every couple of months. And in this case...so what if I do. It's just a spray painted frame with a Portugal print in it:)
So, here's to random yard sale purchases!

Go Pink.

This project is so appropriate for October - Breast Cancer Awareness. Whoop Whoop. As I mentioned in Monday's post I scored a few gems yard sale'n last weekend. This pink beauty was one of them....They had an $85 dollar price tag on this. Little steep for a yard sale. I offered him $20 and he took it. {Yard Sale Lesson #1: It never hurts to ask!} I was kind of shocked but very excited to get to bring such a pretty pink table home. I carried it outside and gave it a light sanding so that my paint would stick better...Two coats of white paint and it is as good as new.... It actually took forever to paint because of all the details and such but definitely worth all of the time spent. Now I just need a place to put this used to be pink now white table....
Moral of the story....GO PINK.
