more treasures!

Saturday afternoon was spent freezing corn, grown by my dad, to enjoy over the winter...

In the morning, on the way to get feed for the horses and chickens, we stopped at a couple yard sales around the corner from us. I was happy to find some bargains and spent less than $10 for everything ~

~ a basket perfect for embroidery or knitting

~a pile of Do It Yourself magazines

~ 2 'new' vintage full-size percale sheets to make pillowcases like Anna's

~ a large wire basket

~ and this great table

Hope you had a wonderful weekend too!!


  1. I love "Do It Yourself" magazine - it's always been a favorite. That's a whole lot of corn! Absolutely love that little table - what an amazing find!


  2. I am jealous! I love that wire basket and the table - what a bargain!

    Also, your corn looks delicious. That is one of my very favorite summertime foods.

    All for under $10? Wow!! That is amazing. The table is adorable.

  6. My goodness! That table was an especially nice find for that price. I love that style of table, especially for the bottom shelf.
    It had been awhile since I did any treasure hunting, but I found a couple of treasures the other day. I'll try to post them in a few days.
    That corn! The best part of August is the bounty from the garden.
    Take care Deb.

  19. Hi Deb!

    Thank you so very much for your latest e-mail! I will now start making a book bag this week!! Yes, i finally have decided to take a risk. Very scary, but i will do it very S L O W L Y. Yes, that`s the only way i can make thigs without making it go wrong. Anyway..i really missed your blog, yes i see that i have missed a few posts. Your kitchen is just divine!! Yes, i love the kitchen cabinets, the working space, the kitchen sink, oh yes the sink. I love those!!
    And your pottery is just so pretty. I always looks for those pottery bowls at the local flea-markets. They work so good for so many things. But here they are hard to find. Often they are yellow or dark green, i am not that fond of those colours. And you have had good luck finding those beautiful treasures again, oh i am so jealous! Specially at the little white table, it looks gorgeous!! Yes i want one for my creative room. So nice to have the opportunity to harvest your own vegetables :)
    It sounds like the days are good for you and that you are enjoying life. Nothing is better than that!
    See you in a bit Deb! Aina

  20. So wonderful finds!!!! We never seem to even have yard sales around here any more.. and if we have auctions its usually farm implements...

    I'm loving the table!!

  21. You did a great job - with the corn and the treasures. I love that table! Your basket and vintage sheets will be fun to use and the wire basket is handy. Enjoy the magazines. ~Adrienne~
