I live in northern Minnesota so garage sale season is not really in full swing yet. I stopped after work on Friday at a church rummage sale. It had already been in progress for at least an hour so it probably was pretty picked over, but here is what I got for $2.
An old rake. I have seen these on Pinterest as Christmas trees and wreaths. I hope I can upcycle and/or repurpose it into a fun new item!
This is a photo from the Century 21 listing for my house when I purchased it, back in 1989. It had brown shingles, new steel siding in "Wedgwood" blue, and white trim and shutters. (Also very overgrown shrubs that I soon removed!)
Fast forward to 2013, the roof has been changed to three tab "weathered wood" shingles, a terracotta accent color was painted on shutters and doors, and all new flower beds and foundation plantings were added. I chose a terracotta accent color, because "when I don't plant in junk, I choose terracotta pots"!

One big "no-no" when you are a blogger is not taking a "before" photo of your project. One day while painting a crib rail, clothespins and thrift shop candle holders, I missed taking a before photo of the wooden candle holders.
My project began with these three dark wood tone candle holders from multiple trips thrifting.
A couple weeks ago I purchased this pizza peel or board at a neighborhood garage sale. I paid $2 for it.
