Yard Sale Steal!

First, let me say THANK YOU for all your well wishes!!  I really did appreciate them!  We are finally back to normal again! normal as we get anyway. :P

I do alot of things with the intent to blog about it.  And inevitably something comes up and I never get around to it.  Does that happen to you?

One of those things is, I thrift alot.  And I yard sale when I can (meaning when I actually get my lazy butt out of bed on a Saturday morning early enough). 

But I don't want to show you what I pick up until I've 'redone' it.  Which usually sometimes never happens.  So, I have a garage of 'stuff' just waiting for me to have time.  I'm sure I'm not the only one this happens I've seen pictures of some of your garages. ;)

Notice you haven't seen pictures of MINE.  heehee

Anywho...a few weeks ago I actually made it out on a Saturday morning to hit some yard sales.  I picked up quite a few nifty finds that day, but with all the Halloween hubub and decor, I'm just now getting around to putting out and showing you my MAJOR FIND!

I was so excited to find these!  I'm not even sure what their technical name is...but they are wine bottles! 

Can I just say...they are so ME!

I paid $3 for the large one and $2 for the small one.  I have no idea...that might be a rip off or a steal...but I felt like it was steal. 

They are very ala-Pottery Barn to me. :)

I love their aged and torn labels.

I NEED to find a third one now to complete my 'set'.  Isn't three a set?  Or a collection?  Something like that.

But until then, I'm totally in love with these in my living room on my end table!

Did I mention I LOVE them!  And for $5...makes me love them even more!!  :)

So, while on the hunt... :)

Until next time....


  1. I bought one of these at a garage sale this summer. I think it was $1 or $2. I can't remember. I have mine sitting on my hearth. I need to get two more so I too can have a collection. ;) Glad you guys are feeling better.

  2. ooh, looks great on your side table. collection, maybe, but with 2 and the potted plant, it's definitely a vignette! totally works!

  3. They look so nice in your home. What a great buy!

  4. Looks great in your home. I also like that lamp on the cute end table.

  5. Score for you my frugal friend! Way to go!

    Many Blessings,

  6. I LOVE them...nice work at that yard sale!

  7. Glad you're feeling better, Erin! I could use a good bout of stomach flu. I've got some jeans I'd like to fit into. Can you lick something and mail it to me?

  8. Isn't it the best feeling ever finding some you love at a bargain price. I just love that feeling!!

  9. (Tara - hee hee)

    I know that three makes one of those things, but I have to agree with Cape on the Corner. It all looks great together as it is.

    Glad everyone is back to normal. Have a great weekend!

    Hugs and Blessings,

  10. I always thought 2 was a set... so feel good about it lol!

    And remember that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It's your house and if you love 'em then that's what really matters!

  11. I have been seeing these demijohns all over blogland...they are normally very expensive. Great find.
