Love a Bargain!

Going to yard sales is never planned at our house. Usually, on a Saturday morning while brushing my teeth, my husband calls out from the shower, "Want to go garage sale-ing? I rarely decline. One morning, we found this old white wicker chair for $5. Better yet, there were two! I added the cushions. This vintage pink glass lamp cost $5. I love that it lights up on the bottom, too! This chippey blue table frame was the best bargain because it was FREE. Another project waiting on the back burner. I bought this vintage metal ice cream cone stand for $2. I just need some ice cream! That wraps up all my bargains. . . until next Saturday. Thanks for stopping by!

I love my old wicker chairs on the front porch too, but in Canada we have to take them in for the winter, the ice and snow just rots them :( Great bargains, come see the guest bedroom pics I put on the Rose Cottage blog, it's almost there :)

Hi, Cindy! Love your blog site. I found it when I searched for a pic of a wicker chair. I'm a poet and artist, about to have my first book published (for real). I wanted to ask your permission to use that photo, it's just what I need for an illustration...
If you have any questions or want to give me the OK (or a denial), could you send me an email? daniel@dreamwalkermedia.com THANKS
