Weekend Treasure Hunt

I found some cool things at the yard sales over the weekend.......took advantage of some end of summer sales.....and even found free items!

H picked this up for me at a sale where  he found some "guy things"      The lady took off a dollar on each item he bought,  so my scale was only $4

25th Anniversary plate and cake server.....$2

My metal pink pig watering can is from Kohls.....marked down to $12

I found a cute framed magnetic piece......

Here is a better photo of it.    Once it gets a shabby paint job,  it will fit in better!   It was toward the end of the day...everything was half my board was only $1.50

I thought this silver bowl would make the base for a yard art flower......

These faux onions look so real......$1.50 for the bunch

No plans for this piece yet,  but I do know it will get a new paint job

When we stopped to look thru the free pile at this yard sale,  I saw why no one had taken this chair yet.      The seat springs were touching the!     I thought it had good bones and at the very least I can use the springs for a project.

H went all over the chair making sure it was clean and bug smelled we loaded it up.      Any cloth items that we bring home have to pass the smell and clean test!

Please visit my side bar to see "Where I Party"  and stop by and visit a few of these great blogs!


  1. Penny,
    Great finds!! I always love seeing your weekend finds because you always find the best stuff!! Glad that you do not have the humidity that we have where you are. I do not do well in the Summer because of the heat and humidity. Last week, every joint in my body was swollen, I think. My arthritis really rears it's ugly head in the Summer for me......

  2. Hello, Penny! Your blog is beautiful and the greatest posts for me are about your weekend treasures hunt. Just love them!!!
    All the best from me,
    /from Bulgaria, Eastern Europe/

  4. You always find the best stuff! I think its time for a shopping expedition for me.

We traveled through update New York on our way to Niagara Falls a few years ago and I wanted to stop at every yard sale I saw. I just new I was passing up a major find! Have a great rest of the week!
