Shopping at yard sales is so never know what you're going to find while out "junkin"  
  I came across 10....yes 10,  Ficus tree's at a yard sale the other day.   All were in perfect condition and I was able to buy 6 of them at $5 each.     Have you priced one at HL lately?   over $100.  
We took them out to the back yard to hose 'um down....they were dusty from being in storage.

  In the photo above are the first two.....

Here are the other 4.    

What did I do with 6 tree's?

I put one in a corner of the sun room.....

One found a home on the front porch......

One is  behind the giraffe in the sun room.......

One on each side of the utility trailer......H secured them to the trailer so they won't blow over.

and the last one went to the side of the cabinet in the family dining area.

I also bought this floor mirror......minus the mirror!    I have a project in mind for the frame.

I also found another box of vintage hangers for $5.

  I am slowly getting all the clothes in my closet hung on vintage hangers.
I can't wait to see what treasures I can find this week end!


  1. I can't wait either. Your ability to find great things and then the way you use/repurpose them always amazes me. I think you really could make a silk purse out of a sow's ear ... if you haven't already. Love your blog.

  2. wow... I can just see them all with lights ---such a romantic element. And in your hot summers you will have green shade one way or the other! Thanks for sharing, Sandi

  3. You are able to find always treasures

  4. What a great haul! I can't wait to see what you do with the mirror frame and thats a great idea about the hangers. :)

  5. I love ficus trees too. I had one once but finally threw it out because it collected too much dust. Hubby was always complaining about it. LOVE your giraffe! Is he ever cute! I think every home needs a giraffe. You find the neatest things to bring home. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Lots of treasures here Penny! Great haul for the days! Thanks for sharing and linking.

  8. Wow, what a find! I'm never so lucky.

  9. Penny,
    I can't believe that they were only %5.00!!
    And I can't believe that you found such great places for all of them! I had one a very long tie ago but got rid of it to make room. I used to have an uplight on the floor behind it shining up through the leaves. It looked really pretty and I used to put lights on it for Christmas. What a great find!!

  10. Hi Penny! I am featuring your beautiful home at "Inspiration Monday Party" this Sunday! Thank you so much for linking up.

  11. You have a knack for finding great deals at yard sales! I've got a feeling they will all be lit up this Christmas and it will be so pretty! I noticed the dough bowl in the sun room. I have one almost identical. I like how you have yours decorated. #merrymonday

  12. I always love looking at your photos! :)
