I love garage sales! When we lived in Texas, my girlfriend and I would carefully plan our route from the newspaper ads. If the ad mentioned "antiques" or "quilts" we would arrive early. We would sit in the car and wait patiently for the garage door to open. I thought I would share some pictures of some of the things we've found over the years.
We've had this hutch since 1988.
And the matching china cabinet. For our wedding gift, my mother-in-law purchased and handpainted our china. It's simply gorgeous!
One of my favorite pieces is my secretary desk. I enjoy sitting here in the early morning hours with a cup of coffee and a puzzle book. I pay the bills here too (groan)!
Next to the desk is a ladder rack that I use to display a few of my quilts. All of the them were purchased at garage sales and are completely done by hand. I rotate the quilts with the seasons! I enjoy snuggling under one of these gems with a good book every now and then.
I purchased the farm table at a craft show a few years ago. People either love it or hate it! LOL!!
I made the sampler on the table as well as the bee/hive cross stitch in the mirror frame and the sampler hanging on the right in olive green frame. I enjoy working on my samplers in the evening after the boys go to bed. It soothes my soul!
When we downsized my mother's home a few years ago, she decided it was time to give me the rocking chair she used to rock me in when I was a baby. It creaks and everything! I'm looking forward to rocking my grandbabies in it someday!
I had to have this shaker peg shelf! I love decorating it with the seasons!
My cousin from Missouri visits every October and she's a garage sale freak too! When she's in town, we get into all sorts of trouble! I can't wait!!
