My parents neighbors are moving to tropical Naples, Florida.
Weeks ago they had a massive yard sale. I'm sure it was great.
I wasn't there.
But, this past Tuesday, my sisters, my daughter, my mom and I were invited over to pick up anything we wanted that was left over - FREE of charge.
Whatever we didn't want, was going to be hauled to a thrift store. Here's a sample of what we hauled home:
Great heart. My wheels are turning... where/how/when to use this?
(Or I'll probably give it to someone who really loves hearts.)
Loved the nest, the eggs, the little angel and the silhouette.
Have no idea what to do with the angel and silhouette yet.
Brand new grill set for the husband, monogrammed linen hand towel, and a great splatterware tea kettle for Fourth of July decor, maybe?
Movies to watch. Oh, there were lots more. My daughter put those in her room quickly.
Cute things I will do something with for the Fourth of July, on the front porch.
The big hydrangeas? My daughter scooped them up for her dorm room window.
A bag of brand new gift bags and some decent size spools of tulle. I was just in need of gift bags of various sizes and some tulle.
No, really. I was.
I also got some great oak rockers. I'll show those later.
We left behind so much. Like a sewing machine, a Martha Stewart flower press (still in the box), a video projector, a wicker table and chairs, a cedar chest...
But my all time favorite piece, my treasure of the day was...
...this little wooden bird.
I just love this little thing. So rustic. So natural.
Beauty in the imperfection.
