Thriftin Sunday ~

Happy Sunday my friends ~

Today is a gloriously sunny day.  Mr. Vintage and I went to a yard sale ~

I picked up this little milk glass vase for 10 cents.  Sooo I had to put some lilacs in it.  I LOVE the smell ~ don't  you?

My next door neighbour has white ones.  I asked if I could pick some ;-)

I put these ones at the front door.  Nothing like a bouquet of lilacs that says "welcome".

I saw this and just had to have it.  It was cheap cheap cheap.  All the things that I am about to show you cost a total of $10.00.  I won't show you the tools that Mr. Vintage picked up which was included in the price ~ Mr. Vintage can start his own blog about "tools".  tee hee, that would be funny

I put my vintage umbrellas and walking sticks in the crock by the front door.

I bought two of these little chairs.  Now, I have to put some flowers on it.  Perfect ~

The other one is in my kitchen.  They are so sweet ~ I couldn't resist.

This little table cloth was in pristine condition, I just had to have it.

Everyone needs a flower frog or two ;-)

This little metal stool was perfect for my oversized jar in the kitchen.

Well, that was one great yard sale.  We had fun ~

Now, Mr. Vintage is waiting for me.  He wants to take me to a new antique store ~ yeeeee ~ I am squealing with delight.

What are you doing today?




  1. All looks so nice . My Lilacs are a bit slow this year but I to love the smell of them and bringing them in to the house ! The weather has been wonderful this weekend ! Have a good day !

  2. Alas, my lilacs have come and gone. We had very early warm weather in Missouri. What a terrific vintage haul! The Rock Star and I went to a City-wide garage sale yesterday. I'm just learning the ropes, but I managed to find two cute little curio shelves and a tulip magazine rack for less $20 total. I'm pretty stoked about that! Now I hope to find a venue for all my vintage and handcrafted goodies. I sell on Etsy but I'd love to find a cute antique and gift mall to sell in. Hope the rest of your day is as happy as the morning has been! Blessings, Linda

  3. WOW! What a wonderful vase and of course I love that little red chair! Looks like Spring is bringing some good sales! I'm relaxing today and baking a birthday cake for my mother in law! I can't eat any because of the sugar but it sure is making the house smell good! Hugs!

  4. wow what a great haul. Our lilacs are just buds right now so it will be awhile before we can pick some.
    have fun at the antiques store.

  5. Great finds! Did you leave anything for other shoppers? ;0) Glad you had such a good time. We mostly stayed home, but I did finally find a bicycle this afternoon that I will post about later in the week! Yipppeee!

  6. You did really well at the yard sale Marianne. I love your crock with the umbrellas and walking sticks. Have a beautiful week!

  7. Wow, what fun you've been having! I wish I'd been along on that excursion.

  8. Marianne
    I can't believe it-ten dollars?
    I sure wish I lived where you do
    when it comes to shopping!

  9. As you...I am lucky my hubby likes to stroll through antique stores too
    You gathered some great finds.
    I am still waiting for the lilacs to bloom here....soon. We don't have any iin our yard, But plenty of my neighbors do and you can be sure I'll be snagging some.

  10. What a wonderful milk glass vase! I have an umbrella pot filled with vintage walking sticks, umbrellas and an old badmitton racket. We love the same things. Glad to hear that you and your hubby are enjoying life together. Have a very Happy Mother's Day!!

    Big Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley
