I really couldn't believe that I found this chair for $5 and the ceramic jar lamp for $3. I surprised myself by buying the tall lamps with brass, but if you have followed me at all, you know I want to redo that table in my dining room turquoise. I never liked the graphic lamp shades I picked up for my bedroom, so I am thinking I may cover them in a great turquoise fabric and use on these tall lamps. As for the chair, after pictures pleazzze! Here is the after pictures of my bird cage and bird house, though he does sorta blend into the woods:
So now I have a pair of bird cages and it feels pri-t-y good! I just removed the fake vines and put in a real plant. I did save the fake bird though to put in my bird house. Isn't this cute?
While shopping for bargains, I met a a wonderful lady who has her own booth at the Sleepy Poet in Charlotte. We exchanged cards and talked shop. Dana promised me a trip, but now I have to go and snap some pictures. It was nice meeting you today Laura Mallard! And Ms. Mallard had some great stuff at her yard sale:
She let me "steal" this rug from her for just $10. Whadda ya think? I know, pretty lady here is distracting you, but come back! Look how good her rug looks on my floor:
Nice for 10 smack-a-roos, huh? One thing about yard sailing is that you don't always find exactly what you need or want but you edit later. I needed another table in my small hall because what I had was too wide. This isn't really my style, but for $5 it fits the space better and I can resell it later.
And finally, my pretty painted lady. All of the rest of the stuff in the truck are projects.
I think that is enough for one day. Whew, I am one tired lady! My best friend's son is graduating high school tomorrow (go Jordan!) and I promised to help her get the party on. We will be decorating and then hosting for a whole lotta high school boys and their families tomorrow. And I think I am tired now?
