Girls Day Out . . . Yard Sales, Lunch, & Massages!

Girls Day Out - Woo Hoo!!!
My Momma, Me, 
Amanda (who bought the much-photographed hat!), and Mildred


My Momma, a couple of friends, and I had a much-needed Girls Day out on Saturday, and we had an absolute blast! It was such a blessing to have a day to ourselves to spend doing what we love - treasure hunting! We started out early at yard sales. Despite it raining on us off and on all morning, we hit lots of sales and found tons of goodies (okay, I did most of the buying, but it was good stuff!). Then we had Mexican for lunch and headed to the spa for massages. =)  I really don't think our day could have been any better! 

Here's a run-down of my finds.

I told you I found a lot! Pair of Wall-mount swing-arm lamps, 
$5; Pair of barstools, $8; Cooler, $5; Gobs of sand toys, $3; 
and four pair of shoes for my little sweetie who can never find a pair!

Chippy chair, $5; Frames, $1 each; Roll of burlap 
(8 yards!), .50 (anybody know how to make a cent sign?); 
shutter, $1; Wreath, $1; New candles, .50 each; Candleholder, $2; Bottle, $1

Birdcage, .75; Oak stool, $1; Tiered stand, $1; 
Magazine, .25; Bottle, $1; Flower pot, .25; Finial, $2

  5. What an amazing haul! I enlarged the picture too just to take it all in. I can't believe you got that burlap for .50 cents! I would have been tripping over my feet to get to that lovely.

    I think I love just about everything you found.
