I thought after our ripping effort doing the garage sale circuit around town last week that I'd give it a miss this weekend.  Being Easter, having guests, going to parties & family picnics, I just didn't think there would be time....
Fortunately, I did manage to steal a few spare minutes.  There was a garage sale just around the corner which turned out wasn't offering much.  Then, a little further up the road was another sign with balloons, this one was a sweet little girl selling her much loved toys, puzzles, bits & bobs, nothing for me here.  I was about to head home but was detoured due to a footy match & what do you know, another garage sale sign! I followed the balloon trail & was very excited to come home with this little boot load of treasure...all for $25!

More projects, hooray! 

A three drawer chest, a single (really deep)drawer side table, stool & tablecloths.  I have plans for everything here & can't wait to get started...

In fact I didn't wait long...made the stool a new removeable cover using one of the tablecloths!

To see what other tressures people have to share go to

Happy Easter everyone...
