Yard Sale Finds

Just a few finds to report.

Some are from My Favorite Place.  Keith and I were in north Atlanta on Saturday test-driving double strollers (isn't he a great sport?) and he offered to go to MFP with me.  The silver rattle and candy dish are from my mom.  Thanks, mom!

Hope y'all had a great weekend!

Love your finds (I have the same candy dish)! I saw the globe-looking piece before and am kicking myself for not picking it up!

I also saw the globe piece before and didn't get it, but I have the wide mouth, scalloped edge piece. How much did you pay for these?

oooh great finds! Will you display them all or use all/some of them? The rattle is so cute!

Did you check out the city select double stroller?

Anon- I normally pay $1-$3 per piece. Seems to be the going rate.
Lovely - I am working on a way to display them right now.....hopefully I'll have it together and be able to share it soon!
Small and tall - I think we're sold on the city mini double. I pushed it around and played with it and love it. Thanks for the recommendation. Baby Joggers seem to be great strollers!

Oh I LOVE milk glass! I have the piece on the far left...my husband and I hit up thrift stores and garage sales and collected over 75 milk glass pieces for our wedding. We kept all of our favorites, and I can't wait to display them in our new home!

Also just found your site today via the nester's. Spent some time this a.m. just looking around - and I, also, may be in love....with your nursery, with your bed, with your dining room (still cannot get over that you PAINTED that freehand!)...I could gush on and on. I live in Powder Springs, grew up in Marietta, and My Favorite Place is...well...literally one of my favorite places. I have several lovely "finds" from shopping there over the years. LOVE IT! My cousin is adopting two children from Ethiopia as well - their first trip is the week of Thanksgiving. I wish you luck! And in closing, I SWEAR I bid on your nursery chandelier on eBay, early on before the price got a little out of hand (i.e. out of my budget, LOL) It looks gorgeous in your nursery, totally makes the room. Definitely worth the splurge. Your style is amazing - cannot wait to see more of your projects! All the best, Melissa

Everyone, thanks so much for the sweet words. I love getting such kind comments!

MrsSouthernBelle, I forgot to link. MFP is in Chamblee and it's SO much fun. Here's a link to my first post on it: http://www.apennysavedblog.com/2010/07/jackpot.html

Anon - You were smart to stop bidding when you did. I just couldn't help myself :)
It's so exciting to hear about other families that are adopting and have made it that far. It definitely gives us hope!
