I love waking up early on Saturday mornings to go yardsaling.
LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!
This past weekend I found all sorts of nifty treasures:
My favorite is this chair:
Usually I haggle, but I loved the chair so much, I didn’t even blink as I handed over a $10 bill.
I also bought these for $2 a piece! $2!!!!!!
Leather jackets in great condition. I figured I could get at least $20 on Craigslist for each of them….but alas, I can only sell one of them because my 14-year-old spied the man’s jacket and claimed it as his own. Oh, well! Still a steal!
I also got this lovely thing I’m laying on right now:
But….it’s not lovely, you say?
Au Contraire, Mon Frere! A little RIT dye and a load through the wash, and voila’!
It was so hard to take a picture that shows its true color – It’s a purpley-blue…divine really.
I’m in love with the details:
And even though you can’t see the true color….I just heard about a study revealing that people with purple in their bedrooms do it more often! So….it’s a win-win for the hubby and I…I get the groovy color, he gets the lovin’!
By the way, I spent $10 on the bedspread and another $10 on the RIT dye….$20 well spent, I say!
When I was done thriftin’, I made a pinterest-inspired dinner that my family LOVED!
Lemon Chicken from Annie’s Eats!
My husband said it was one of the best things I EVER made….
Which could mean one of two things: Either it’s really good, or what I usually cook really sucks! I hope it’s the first one!
Hope ya’ll had a groovin’ weekend, too!
‘Til next time…..
