More Garage Sale Goodies!!!

Well prim gals here are the garage sale goodies that I have gotten this year. Just like my post from yesterday, all of these things I am using outside as part of my garden & landscape decorations. Keep in mind the season is still young! I will be searching through our local paper to see if there are any community sales going on this weekend. If I can remember, I think that there is one going on really close, like uptown. Hopefully the radio did not steer me wrong. Oh well, I will just have to check the newspaper out.

Okay, enough of my rambling, here are the goodies...

I just could not resist this Uncle Sam. The moment that I saw him I knew that I had to have him because he was going to be perfect for my white chair on the front porch. He is one of my most favorite finds so far this garage sale season.

This darling single wash basin was actually bought off of a friend of mine. I really could not believe that she was parting with it and so I told her that it was going to be mine. Over the holiday weekend I plan on putting flowers in it. I can hardly wait to get started on it!

This cute ladder also came from the same friend. She used to use it as an end table. However, I am going to be using it outside to put a nice large pot of flowers on. I also think some grapevine would look really cute on it too. What do you think? Yes, my friend and I do a lot of garage sale swapping each year, which is a lot of fun too. :)

One of my favorite things to look for at garage sales would have to be old farm tools. I already have several and am looking forward to getting the chance someday to display them in our breezeway.

Both this little bench and watering can came from my garage sale adventures within these last couple of weeks. I am still deciding where to put this little bench of mine. Hmmm? This may take me a little while to figure it out and will look forward to doing that this beautiful weekend. :)

For now that is all that I have to share of the goodies that I have found to use outside during my excursions this spring. However, I do have things that I have bought to use inside my home, which I will be posting about tomorrow. So, stay tuned... So, did you like what you saw? I know I had a lot of fun finding them and am looking forward to getting them all placed and finished like I want them to look this weekend. On Monday or maybe Tuesday I will have pictures of all the finished goodies. :)

Have a wonderful day my prim pals. May many blessings shine down on you this day.

Blessings and Perfect Prims,

Hi Stacey! I love garage sales too. Hubby has gotten used to pulling over rather quickly if we happen to stumble upon one. I have to post the pics of some of my finds...I only did get three things but as you say the season is still young *wink*

I am thrilled to have found your blog and have nominated you for an award. You can pick it up on my blog.

Have a great day.
