Thrifty Treasures

Rhoda at Southern Hospitality is hosting Today's Thrifty Treasures. This is a place where you will find all sorts of sale items that people have picked-up to find new uses for in their own homes. I visited several sales this weekend only to think that most people are very proud of their junk and overprice it. I did find one garage sale that had great prices and I carted away alot of things - mostly for my backyard - my house is full to overflowing. Here are some of my finds:
A child's rake with just a tad of rust to give it "character" for $.25 (great price)!

A rusty wheelbarrow that will be filled with plants.

A bunch of seashells priced from $.10 each to $.50 (a starfish for $.50 - YEA!)

My favorite find - no markings on the bottom of it but I love it and I paid $4 for it.
Great garage saling this weekend!

The wheelbarrow is my favorite! So much character. It will be really fun with flowers.

The rake kinda reminds me of those big spoons/forks that are in the Pottery Barn catalogs. Such a cool thing to display.
