Today's Resale Finds = $20.00

My favorite is this lamp that I scored for $4.99 It's has this neat glass ball in the middle and is pretty unique. It even has another glass ball to hold the shade on.

This frame is already sitting on my counter with a coat of primer. Next week it will be hosting a new family portrait. This weekend we are scheduled with a dear friend, for family portraits with my parents and my brother's family.

Once upon a time I really liked gold, not so much anymore.


I've already worked this birdhouse into my decor. Things have to blend in before the hubby gets home you know! I will show you were I put it on another day.
















I thought these plates would make for some good chargers in an upcoming tablescape. I just am loving how versatile white dishes are!

My hubby thinks this lamp is the ugliest thing that ever existed, and you might agree if you don't have 'transformation eyes' like I do. Just you wait! In the next few weeks I will have a post about this lamps rebirth!
 
For $1.99 each I just couldn't pass these large tins up. Do you see, the top one even says 'cold drinks' on it? They are in perfect condition!

What a steal, all of that for $20.00!

Those are really great finds!! You can never have enough galvanized buckets....that's what I tell myself everytime I walk into the lightening rod that has become my garage o' buckets. ;o) I can't want to see the lamp redo!
