Guest Blogger~Laurie!

My name is Laurie and I blog at Laurie's Little Bits of Creativity, etc. Thank you, Diann for letting me do a guest post here today.

I garage sale a lot during the summer, so today I thought I would share with you where some of my thrifty garage sale finds ended up in my home.

These cute little $3.00 kitty measuring spoons ended up right near my stove.  Not sure if I'll ever use them, but they'll be handy if I do.

This $3.00 window and 50 cent wreath ended up in one of my flower gardens.

I filled my $5.00 wash tub with flowers and placed in another little garden.

My $4.00 baskets ended up in my pantry.  Now things aren't falling all over the place.

I turned this $2.00 picture frame into a chalkboard to hide the ugly fuse box in the pantry area.  Click here to see how it was transformed.

I'm using this $1.00 wooden bowl to hold magazines.

$2.00 metal headboard ended up in the same garden as the wreath and window.

And finally,

This lovely old potting bench was not a garage sale find, I got it at an auction for $25.00.  I dry brushed it and now it sits proudly in my living room.

If you'd like to see more I'd love to have you visit me.  Thank you again, Diann, for letting me share with your readers.

  9. First I would like to thank Diann for letting me be a guest blogger. Thanks Diann!!! Thank you everyone for your kind comments. I treasure each and every one. Right after this posted we left on vacation. Since we were camping, no internet, thus the reason I am so late in thanking everyone.
