Some weeks are better than others. This was sort of a rough week, so it's no surprise that Saturday morning followed suit.
(Wow, I just reread that and realized that I totally sound like Debbie Downer!)
Let me start over.
I've been sick with a terrible cold since about Wednesday. You know the drill, tired, coughing, no voice, head about to explode, you get my drift. So even this morning I wasn't feeling much like bargain hunting. But, the good news is, I managed to turn up three happy finds for only $4. It wasn't a high roller day, but these little finds sure did make me feel a bit better!
$1 - A blue twin sheet set. I'm sure you can guess what I plan to do with these! And, let it be writ, I plan to write all about my rag rug with details about how you can make your own none other than TOMORROW! Even if it's not finished by then, I'll share what I have!
$1 - 2 beautiful, very old waist aprons. I think I'll give one to my sister. Just for love. (The apron that is pictured is the one I'm keeping!)
And, my tuck-and-run find of the day:
$2 - This lovely skirt. I plan to wear it to church tomorrow! It makes me very happy!
And, now, I'd like to begin a new Saturday morning tradition. I really love following all the links you leave, getting to know you all and seeing what great finds you, well, find! Last Saturday I read through all your purchases, and while there were some fantastic bargains, I would like to announce the very first...
Bargain of the Week!
This week, the Gypsy Mamma found a sand box boat for $20!!Now, since I forgot to ask her permission to copy and use the photo, you'll have to follow this link to see it for yourself. Talk about tuck-and-run!!
Oh, and one more thing before Mr. Linky. I just wanted to show you what I'm doing with that long wooden candle holder I found a few weeks ago for $1.00.
Isn't that lovely?
Pottery Barn was selling these yellow candles on sale for $3.99 apiece today (they smell phenomenal!), and the place mat was also $3.99 at PB. Not necessarily garage sale prices, but a nice bargain nonetheless. You do know how I feel about the 2009 Pantone Color of the Year, don't you?
Okay, on to Mr. Linky. I'm looking forward to reading about your finds (I hope you haven't given up on me because I'm posting this at 6:30pm!) and picking a next week's "Bargain of the Week"!
