Junkin at Estate Sales is becoming my new favorite way to buy! Yesterday & today made a trip to same one! I never quite know what to wait on for half price days? Should have probably waited on a few things yesterday but wasn't sure.
Today I dug an adorable desk table out of the grundgy garage only to have this older couple load it up while I went to get a sales person. Nice!
The house was 3 stories & walls were all loaded with silhouettes 1000's. My success included quilted pillows (feed sack squares) great black square suitcase, lots of frames (gonna do chalkboards in them), bottlesh, jars, rugs, galvanized buckets, primitive shelf, primitive hooked rug. Minor regrets on items I passed on. Overall great haul!

I'm reading a magazine given to me by a friend (live recycling magazines); Do It Yourself. Spring 2012 edition. I love the story on Curb Appeal. The easy ideas that would truly make your house stand out from others in your neighborhood. I have a red door that I just love. Our house is the same color as many others in the area (tan) but my red doors help give it a little pop.
