thrifty thursday...

I went to quite a few garage sales this week.... my trusty g-sale buddy had something better to do, so I brought in my 'back up'. She must have been bad luck, since we didn't find one.single.thing in 8 stops. Of course, the last sale we hit as an after thought on the way home was the best one.  I wish I had gone there first because by the time I got there, it had been open for 3 hours and was pretty picked over.

I found an old basket, metal strainer, covered butter dish, ironstone platter & cup, an old jar...

  this great leather bag...
and an old atlas with gorgeous colors perfect for framing and craft projects...
At my favorite junk store, I nabbed an awesome globe, a cableknit sweater (for pillows), a red produce basket and 2 large metal baskets...
this one's a keeper...
at my favorite thrift store... an ugly, but sturdy little footstool that will be getting a pretty makeover, a red wool blanket (Christmas stockings & pillows), a perfect autumn tablecloth and old leather belts that will be cuffs in the future.
 as soon as I put the stool down, Riley claimed it as his own...
Since my Spring Market is over...when I am shopping, I am thinking ahead to Autumn & Christmas.

The way the weather has been lately, it's not hard to be thinking 'Fall' ... it sure feels like it is!

weekend in Washington... Part 2- Farm Chicks


Friday morning we stopped at Trader Joe's to load up on snacks...
 then headed to Coeur d'Alene to check out some shops and have lunch...
Saturday morning, we got up bright and early to wait in line at 7:30am for our 8:30am early admission...
It rained while we waited, so we were nice and soggy when the gates opened...
Once we were in, it really didn't matter if our hair was wet & frizzy...
FARM CHICKS here we come!



 
                                








 I reaaaally wanted to bring this locker unit home with me, but it just wouldn't fit...
 my favorite booth.... LOVE


                                

                                


now the fun part... getting all our treasures to fit... with room for a Target shop!

            on the boat home, we did some crafting to pass the time...
                                                                          braided leather wrap bracelets...

we love you Farm Chicks...
and Serena...
thank you for putting on such an amazing show.
See you next year!
