Yard Sales ~ Yippee

Saw this sign Saturday morning as I was heading to the post office.....yippee! First one this season and I was so excited. And further down the road was a little outdoor flea market....double yippee. The last sale I went to was Thanksgiving and I could not wait for them to start up again. Found these oh so cute shabby, chippy, rusty child's garden rakes for the shop. Please tell me I am not the only one who loves old stuff like this! :)

Thanks to Kathleen for hosting our fun White Wednesday's. You can find lots more wonderful whites here at her blog "Faded*Charm". Spring has definitely sprung here sooooooo....I guess you know what I'll be doing this coming Saturday. On the road looking for more of those white signs and all the treasures just waiting to be found.

Hi Lynn...love those! We are putting together a potting shed on the porch of the shop I'm at. I am on the hunt for vintage gardening "stuff"!

Don't you just love when the Yard Sales start up again? I came across one last week and filled up my whole car with goodies. Between that and this nice weather, I'm loving life.

Hope you had a great WW.

Hello Lynn,

Definitely rake in all those colorful eggs :-)

I think these old ones will look great in one's garden. Kinda like giving it an old charm. :-) Ok, I know I put a smiley but it makes me sad a little cause I'm wishing I have "me" a wee garden.

Mizpah,
Li

(and yes, being away for a while makes one really miss the nice people you get to visit. :-) )

Those are cute rakes, today I saw at the antique mall an older pail and shovels for children. I can't wait until our sales start up. Happy White Wednesday, good luck on finding sales Saturday.

The Muse said...

tennis? really? mmm and dancing with the stars???
well now...i dare say you would sweep the judges off their feet! :)

What a great find on the rakes. My niece found some really cool old fashion garden tools when she ventured into the upper part of her new home's garage. The children from this home are all very old and so was the childs lawn mower. Lucky find. So nice to find nice old stuff.

Jennifer said...

We had several out last weekend as welland I wasn't the least bit prepared! It is going to be another gorgeous weekend, so I hope to see some good ones here!

Enjoy your weekend and hopefully you will find treasures galore!

Rita said...

I'm loving your rakes. great finds!
I'm lookingc forward to our next flea market - we so not have yard sales in italy - for some fun finds... I'm addicted to flea markets and suffer from some sort of flea market chronic disease and do not seem able to come home empty-handed. Doubt if i will ever be able to be properly treated lol
have a grat sunday

Hi Lynn,
Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! Has Spring arrived at your house? It sure looks like Easter. I visited one of my favorite "antique" stores yesterday and picked up a little something for our Tussie Mussie swap! I'll be starting on it this week! Have a blessed day!

I'm thrilled that it's this time of year. My children are terrified every time I drive them somewhere. They're afraid of mommy stopping short and detouring for yet another sale. Sometimes they wind up sitting in the car with things piled up on top of them. Do you think they'll adjust?

Charli and me said...

I love the rakes too. Easter eggs and yard scales are a sure sign of spring. I hope you have a warm and sunny weekend. I can't wait to see what else you find.

Dan said...

Fantastic pics! Can't wait for yard sales too!

I am just as excited about the yard sales as you are. Let the treasure hunt begin!

Light and Voices said...
