This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

My Garage Sale stuff............

Laura and I went to garage sale last week. I found a few cool things. This lovely tea pot was 2.00

This is a container that was purchased at Sam's Club no doubt, I got it for 1 dollar and I am using it for dog biscuits

I got this to use as a bird bath. I have done several of them around the garden by placing them on a stand. This one only 2 dollars.

My friend Nancy had a sale also........the stool or table, whatever it is I got from her. I am not sure what to do with it so it is resting here for now. The blanket on the back of the chair I got this past week for 1 dollar. How can someone get rid of all that work??????

The yellow box came from Nancy.......I could not resist it. Sits well in my new laundry.

All these blue plates I got from Nancy also.......not sure what I will do with them yet, not my colour but I may use them yet.

The tray was from Nancy and I got it to actually use when we want tea. She gave me the napkins too. I already had the tea set, got that at a long ago garage sale I am sure.

The plate here was also among Nancy's things. It is already in use in the garden. It stands on a small wrought iron stand and looks great

There are a few more treasures that we found. I got a scooter for Tristen, its his pride and joy at the moment and cost me one dollar that was the best find of all.
I am sharing this with The Dedicated House Blue Friday


  1. I love seeing all the treasuries you got!!! Fantastic finds! I can't believe someone got rid of that blanket?? I don't understand people!!

  2. I can't believe the prices - I adore the first teapot - and the pretty plates - and the tray - so many wonderful things.
