This morning I went galavanting for a couple hours with my sister, Jeanne. Along the way I searched for yard sale signs, but much to my disappointment none were to be found.
We did however stop by the D.I. (thrift) and I picked up a few items.
As I was driving along I kept seeing so many gorgeous lilacs. I wanted so badly to have a bundle to play with. Don’t you love playing with flowers?
Knowing that my Lilacs are still in bud I called my dil and asked her if I could stop by and pick a few. She and my son bought our previous home. She was very obliging and had the clippers in hand when I rang the door.
Isn’t it funny how you manage to pick ‘just the right amount’ for the container you have in mind?
I have had this hotel silver pitcher for a few years. It was a yard sale find. Are you impressed that I knew it was ‘hotel silver’? Ha, ha, I must confess that I just learned that this week after visiting Laura at Sunday View. What is hotel silver? Heavy silver made to withstand lots of use. This puppy definitely is heavy.
After using every last branch I staged it in a couple places.
The rock wall.
My white garden bench.
As much as I loved it outdoors, I had to bring it in to enjoy the heavenly scent!
Now I have to show you the blooms on their tree Peony. It had more blooms than ever before.
I had Samantha hold her hand by it so you can see how large they really are.
Is that not gorgeous?
Now, one last thing. I have found a new weight loss program that many of you are going to love! Did you know that going to yard sales can help you lose weight?
I just discovered this recently myself. A few weeks ago my friends and I went to a yard sale in St. George where I snagged this wicker table for $3. I asked one of them to take a picture of me for instagram so my family could see what I was up to.
Afterwards we all checked out the photo and they exclaimed, “Oh my gosh, you look so skinny!” lol! So there you have it going to yard sales helps you lose weight. Or maybe you just need to carry a wicker table around. Hee-hee! The truth is I think it’s just because you can’t see my big tush.
What have you bought that has helped you lose weight lately?
I will be sharing with:
