Unexpected finds....

I love when you are driving along and see a yard sale and just get that urge to stop for just a second. That happened to me on Saturday and I am so glad I gave into the urge and stopped.

It was around noon so most of the good stuff would be gone I figured. The first thing that caught my eye was this adorable shelf.


As I sauntered over for a closer look, I said how cute it was but had no idea what I would use it for. The lady said it would be great as a little shelf to hold some cookbooks. I checked the price tag and can you believe it was only .75 cents! It is solid wood and it great shape. Nothing coming loose; no major scars. So I brought it home and now it holds a place of honor on the cook book section of my Baker's Rack. For now, I put my springy teapot on it, but that is subject to change. I don't know what I will use the drawers for, but I'm thinking maybe my holiday cookie cutters. I just adore it and am so glad I stopped to take a look.


If you will recall, I recently changed the decor in my bathroom to include lavenders, lilacs, and purples. I have been looking around for a good deal on a lotion dispenser, soap dish, and toothbrush holder with purple. At the same yard sale yesterday, I found this entire set. It is like brand new. It doesn't look like it has ever been used and the price for the entire set was just $2.00. What a deal!


And here is the set at its new home on the sink. I just love it.


I just love finding what I'm looking for and finding it at a great price.
