This is a picture of our old house, It took me three weeks to dig it up then plant it. And it is not a real big stop, it is at the side yard. I wish I would have taken another one when my yellow climbing rose bushes were in bloom.  Sorry I got side tracked, with my old garden, and it has absolutely nothing to do with my yard sailing on Thursday. hahaha

Well like I said on Thursday morning my Sweet Sister and my Angle Caileigh went out looking for bargains. Yes we did find some good ones. I was soooooooooooo excited about the pretties I found, at one sale they had and old wood straight back chair, and no Cain seat. I asked the lady how much the chair was, and she said how much would I pay,  know ladies you know that when some one says how much are you willing to pay for it that is a very loaded question. I said five dollars.... she said she thought ten but since is said it first she gave it to me.. yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh... Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahh

Hubby is going to finish it for me and I am going to make a seat for it, I will make sure I take some pictures of  before and after. Then I found another chair a small wood one, she had seven and I asked her is she would take five, and she did. Her dad make it and it is so nice looking, going to paint it white and age it some.

I found some great dishes and bowls and some really cute jar tops for some of my craft projects. OH yes and Ladies this Saturday will be my grand opening for my Etsy store. I am so excited about it , I have been busy trying to get things made and cleaned, and entertain my Angel grand daughter, I have not had a whole lot of free time. My Sweet Sister went back home today, and Caileigh will be going home on Monday. So things will be back to normal.

I sure have missed visiting every one I hope every one is doing fine and going to have a wonderful weekend. It is so hot here this past week, too hot to go out and do yard work, I just watered my flowers.

Ok my dear friends this is about all for now, I have had a busy week, and I must catch up on my blog surfing, so many to visit. So to all of you have a great night and a wonderful morning. God Bless.

It sounds like you got some good deals at your yard sales! The last time I had a yard sale, I just gave things away. I actually set up a table that said free.

I'll bet your chairs will be beautiful when they are done. I'm looking forward to seeing some pictures.

I'm also looking forward to your Etsy shop opening.

take care,

It certainly is satisfying coming away from garage sales with a few good finds and I am anxious to see your finished chairs. The chair her father made must be a treasure.
Than's for popping by Nature Trail!
