I am in Garage Sale HEAVEN!!!

I just love when the weather changes here in Michigan...cause out pops all the subdivision/neighborhood Garage Sales. A dime here, and quarter there and you have wonderful treasures to do with what you please. So, I thought you might like to see what I have found in the past few weeks. And then, I did not do a before/after pictures of a wonderful 5 tiered corner shelf I found for only $8, but I do have the creamy heirloom white brand new shelf (well to me anyway), ready for my *New* craft room! Most of my finds will be for my room when it gets done.

Did you see that HUGE Rose that I believe is Capodemonte (SP?)? I snagged that sweetie for .50c...I could not believe it...SO...take a peek in my post of my redecorating my Living Room...cause you will see how I have already incorporated it. I just couldn't was such a great find.

Most all of my other goodies, are going to be transformed, and then added to my Craft room...that I have been busy organizing and getting ready for. Now, I just need to finalize the exact Robin's Egg Blue for that room...found a few samples, but I am still deciding.

Have a blessed day..and thanks for dropping by!

Hi Lorena! Thanks for the comment on my bedroom. Yeah, sometimes Rate My Space can get vicious and rude. I don't believe in room perfection. I like what feels good and friendly to me. As for the paint color on the walls, I don't know. It was like that when I moved in here, but if I ever figure it out, I'll let you know. I've been thinking about trying to match some paint chips in case I ever need to do touchups. Anyhow, I love it. Depending on the light it looks a soft green or sometimes even teal or aqua. I love that it seems to change.
