:: saturday mornings ::

Its been years since I bothered to yard sale. Somehow as a young adult, waking up early Saturday morning just didn’t appeal to me--despite my widely known love of a bargain/“junk” hunt. This morning, despite having worked late the evening before, I dragged myself out of bed and hit the community-wide yard sale. Boy, am I glad I did!! I found a nice selection of what I term “pretty junk” that was calling my name (and quite easy on the wallet...):

photo album

navy pin

bowl and frame

pink pyrex

I also picked up a small, four-drawer storage unit (for a whopping $5) that needs to be repainted. But once its given a few fresh coats of a soft white semi-gloss, I think it’ll be perfect for stashing my sewing/crafting supplies that are getting out of hand. Well, almost... I think this will call for a trip to Target or the Container Store to get little organizers for all the drawers. ‘Cause a drawer full of tangled supplies kinda defeats the purpose! :)

Have a lovely weekend!
