It is so HOT!

We are edging towards 100 degrees here in MS. It is so hot that if you plan on stepping outside you have two options:
1. Wear as little clothes as possible. 2. Be heading to the pool to cool off.

Thankfully yard sales around here start at 6am. I am done and home before it is too bad outside. This week was a slow week but I found a few goodies.

Wooden tealight holder $1

Rollercoaster car $5 The lady started the price off at $10 when I asked and seeing me pass it she just kept dropping her price until I said I'd take it. The kids have rode this nonstop!

White Dishes/Pots 50 cents each. I'm thinking succulents for these.

Shelf $10 This was marked $15 but I heard him offer it to someone else for $10. When that person didn't take it I snatched it up! I thought it would look good by the pool but it may stay inside. I'm in love with all of the curves.

Birdhouse for 50 cents. This will get a coat of white for sure!

Old Library Card Catalog Holder $2

Wow ...... I'm really jealous of your birdcage and the shelves! I looked for those all over the place but couldn't find any cheap enough!

Hi Chanda,
This is my first visit to your blog via Thrifty Treasures. Well you got some really great stuff. I love birdhouses and own three. No birds just the houses! I like your idea of putting succulents in the little white containers, very trendy and chic. I imagine your kids had a blast on the funky rollercoaster car; it looks like a great ride. Cathy

Lisa said...

Great finds! I especially love the library card holder.

Teri said...

Rollercoaster car looks life fun; I'd love a ride on it! You got a lot of great deals; nicely done!

Sue said...

That would make a cute accent piece outside by the pool or in the mudroom/hall, etc. And great little white pots for hens and chicks! Sue

ThriftyAnnabella said...

Looks like you found some great buys

Victoria said...

The white dishes will look beautiful with succulents!

Love the shelf too. What a deal at $10!

Don't forget if you can't find white dishes you like you can always spray paint them (unless you are wanting to eat off of them). :)

I enjoyed reading about YOU in your last post. I also work part-time and enjoy it (most days). Sounds like you've found something that fits you great and that's awesome!
