Went Shopping For Free

I was reading Rene's blog @ MissGracie'sHouse yesterday and she said she had went "Shopping" in her barn. I thought that was hilarious and decided to use it today (thanks Rene)! I saw a pair of candle sconces someone was selling and thought Hey! I have those! That began my search. I was also missing a basket that went on a stand. Couldn't find either of those things anywhere. The only place I had left was the dreaded outbuilding......ewww! So I began unloaded EVERYTHING (most terrible job ever).
Not so terrible by the time I was finished. I found these: didn't know I had them and they'll look great on the new desk! They have something to do with printing. Found all this! I didn't know I had the frame....excited! Nice surprise finding the pottery pieces too!
Knew I had these birds......somewhere! The little boxes.....I love them.

Can't wait to paint these up! They'll look great white.......feel a project in the near future!

Didn't know I had this either! Color....good............Cleaned........yes! It's ready to be put out now!
After yesterday no work....yaaay!

Why were all these great things buried in the building you ask? I have no idea! A huge lapse in judgement is all I can come up with (just don't tell hubby I admitted to something like that)! Not to mention yes I found the things I was looking for and was so excited I didn't even blog about those!!!! I'll save them for another time, everyone have a great day!!


  1. How fun, love the candle holder and wavy lines of the low planter!

  2. Looks like you have metal letter stamps for monogramming or printing lots of things. I think they can be used to put the letters on metal objects. They are definitely cool. Love your other treasures as well. We are big thrift shoppers too.

  3. Don't you just love it when you find something you forgot about? And then realize that you can use it in some way? Your finds were awesome...keep diggin you might find something else you can use! haha! You should see the Goodwill curtains I posted about today...they're just awesome!

  4. Wow, can I come free shopping at your place??
    Just beautiful, WOO HOO for you!
    Sparkly Hugs,
    Tobi and the Pixies!

  5. Crystal, send your buried treasures my way and I'll display them :) Isn't it wonderful when you can shop your house or in your case, your outbuilding (I need one of those!) I can't wait to see how you use all those pretties in your home. Woo Hoo!

    Thanks for linking to Woo Hoo! Wednesday and joining the Cinco de Mayo fun.

  6. Best shopping ever! I used to do that until we moved and decided I didn't want to keep moving my store around with me. Can't wait to see your finished products!

  7. It is always fun to find things we forgot we had!

  8. Shhh....mums the word! I won't tell hubby. :) Loved your shopping trip and your finds! xo Happy Woohoo Wednesday
