Putting last week's thrifty finds to use

After my fabulous haul from the yard sales last week, I was excited about putting some of those finds to use! (My hubby is being very annoying encouraging in this area - he's tired of me piling up his spot in the garage with "junk"!)

Remember this little wreath?

I could not snip off those tired little flowers 
fast enough - and there were tons of them!

And this poor mistreated bottle?



They now have new lives, lives that bring me much joy!

I am absolutely loving these cuttings of native azalea. 
There's lots of them in our woods, and I anxiously 
await them blooming every year. 

 
I  have been told that my mystery metal 
tabletop is an egg tray from a commercial hatchery.


 
Doesn't every flat surface need a starfish? 
I found this old Joy of Cooking at a yardsale 
years ago, and the rolling pin belonged to 
my grandmother.






On a different note, I passed 50 followers this weekend!!! I have so much fun with this blog, and it's nice to know that there are people who actually read it. Thanks y'all!
