Yard Sale Finds

Hey girls....I decided it was time to share a few of my yard sale finds.  So this is going to be a mod podge of pictures. This season has been filled with me gathering little treasures here and there. I love finding something old and used that I can bring home and make it feel loved and beautiful.  You don't have to spend a fortune to make your home  more you.

One of my favorite little vignettes of goodies is this one. I would much rather have it on a bookshelf with a collection of my old books, but don't have one in this house that I can use, but someday. typewriter vignette I have had this fan for a while now, but it has been in storage because I didn't really have anything else to put with it.  I got the typewriter at a antique shop near my house, and Michael bought the camera.  My girlfriend gave me these little glasses in the case. 

Old it, I have two pieces that I picked up at different yard sales for $1 each. luggage I would like to have one more so that I could eventually use it as a table if the opportunity presents itself.   At the moment, this is atop my shrunk surrounded by some of Longaberger baskets. 

Lookie what else I found along with Boyd's bears( I don't have pictures of yet)queen bee doll Isn't this doll to die for?  Definitely one of my new favorites.  I couldn't wait to get her out.  At the moment, I have her hanging on a door.  Haven't found the perfect home for her yet.  But I will. 

Now for the last find that I will share today...this is my new secretary, but will tell you that it has changed quitesecretary a bit since I took this picture.  I will have to share another updated one soon.  But this is it several weeks ago.  Two weeks ago I picked up a antique chair for $2. that I have sitting here now.  Will try to get a updated picture this weekend.  Plus I have picked up some cute little desk-y items.

I don't know about you, but I am always looking for new ideas to display and arrange my goodies, so if you have any tips or hints, I would appreciate hearing them. The past two weekends, I have been rearranging and playing with my new goodies.  Trying to find the perfect little home. I should probably take some ariel views of the rooms so you can see things all together.  That would give you a better idea of what I have to work with.  Huh?
