My Dream Yard Sale

My dream yard sale would be held by my best friend....she would be getting rid of all the things that she was tired of  (all just my taste, of course).....she would let me come over and go thru everything before the sale started,  ......wait!!!! wake up Penny....your dream came true over the week end!
 My daughter's decorating style has changed in the last couple of years and she had a bunch of stuff packed away in the garage,  and she wanted her garage back!   So I went over Friday and helped her go thru all the boxes and she let me pick out what I would like to have before the sale.

Dollar Tree Decorating


I have set up a card table for H and I to enjoy our breakfast outside this morning.  I like to use card tables to eat on in the yard....easy to set up and take down.....and you can enjoy a meal anywhere in the yard.

Duncan Phyfe Potting Bench

H made a fun potting bench/table from a Duncan Phyfe  that we bought at a yard sale  Saturday.   It was in pretty rough shape,  but the price was right....$25.

Making a Canopy for my Wicker Swing

We have had this white wicker swing for more than ten years,  so I have had to replace the canopy several times.   In the past I have made several of the canopies from full size dust ruffles and also from sheets   but this year I wanted to do something different.
