yard sale fun on sunday too!

While we were out this morning bargain-shopping at CVS and Rite Aid, we happened by two unadvertised yard sales that were on our way. And oh my goodness, what fabulous things we found!

For a grand total of $6.00 (!!!), we came home with... a hardly-used beanbag toss/tic tac toe game for outside, a pair of matching pretty vintage bowls made in England (a photo of one is below), 2 milk glass pieces (to go with the two we picked up yesterday!), 2 racquetball racquets, a set of funky orange bowls with a matching measuring pitcher, a Christmas-tree-shaped silver-colored cookie platter, four giant spools of what I'm guessing is embroidry thread (we'll use it for crafting, whatever it is!), a new-in-package pattern tracer tool (a goal for this year is to learn to sew...), three cute teacups with saucers (which we'll use for planting more tiny jade plants), a nice old pie plate with decorative edges, and a bright red ceramic "penny pot" (my son's favorite find, after the tic tac toe game and the racquetball racquets, which he likes to use to play tennis in the back yard).

I've put just a few pictures here of some of the favorites. It was the craziest yard sale trip ever - there were just so many nifty things that we can put to good use, that we couldn't leave them behind.

Oh that purple plate is gorgeous! I only came home with jelly jars for canning today!
