  1. A few things that I see that I would like. You found some wonderful treasures.

    Have a great weekend.


  2. Love your treasures. I'll be watching for their transformation and I'm sure they'll be fantastic. Can't wait to go out and yard sale, I'm inspired.

  3. I would have definitely purchased the metal stand with metal basket for $3!!! I also would have purchased the vintage side table and primitive shelf.

    I would imagine that what you called a wooden stool is a stepping stool with something to hold onto to steady yourself. If I put something like that in my kitchen, I would trip over it for sure! Besides, I can't take a step on a stool any longer with my bad knees!

    What a nice haul. I can't wait to see the makeovers!

  4. at those prices everything wow xx

  5. Ummm... ALL OF THEM! You got some great deals and I would've bought them all too!

  6. whaaaaat !???!! those are fab finds w/ the best prices. would barely ever find such great deals where i am... i did get a vintage wooden ironing board for $3 a while ago.

  7. Would have bought all! Great finds & great prices! Bring on the transformations!

  8. Great finds. I would have bought the metal vase.

  9. Most all of them! Love the metal basket - perfect planter!

  10. Love them all, especially metal stand with wire basket, small saw horse and the pedestal table. Great purchases!

  11. Great finds! I just love the wire basket and white pitcher! The grater too, I have a collection of them. The framed winter scene really intrigues me. Can't wait to see what you do with them all!

  12. The 4 little piggies are cute oh my wheels of creativity are spinning. In your kitchen I would pant each pig a different color using the colors or your kitchen. Or maybe one red and one teal ya know the two dominant colors in your kitchen. Then paint the other two half red half blue masking of end to end on one and top to bottom on other. You could flip the colors from side you painted first pig. For a cute arrangement hang larger pig on top then three others directly under in a row. None if I found those cuties I'd paint them black and with white paint or chalk section out the cuts of meat on the largest one. Then one each of the smaller ones I'd write HAM PORK BACON with white paint or chalk. Kudos on all of your great finds. Looking forward to seeing your cleaverness and creativity you'll give to each of them. Bye bye ����

  13. Oh, great finds! Can't wait to see what you do with them!!
