Time for the neighborhood sales to begin around here…..and April will be a prime month too.
There really wasn’t all that much at the sales to show you, nothing too exciting, like neat furniture or old vintage things, so here’s a spring pic of blooming trees. This is a very nice neighborhood and Spring is here even if it was cloudy on this morning. I just love this time of year.
Blooms galore and nothing beats jumping out of bed, throwing on some sweats and hitting a big neighborhood sale! I didn’t spend too much, but had fun.
So, of course I did manage to find a few little things to take home. Seashells and clothes were the finds of the day this time. This whole jar of shells was $2.
And all these in the bowl and out were 10 cents. I think I might have enough seashells for now.
Cute little bunny dish was 50 cents. You know I could not pass him up. He looks right at home with my Bordallo bunnies. This would be a great sugar dish.
I‘m always on the lookout for more workout clothes since I seem to be in them most everyday. This nearly new sports bra was $1.00.
Parisian linen shirt was $1.00. See how much I like lime green, it’s all over my closet too.
And another cute short-sleeved green top with a drawstring waist was $1.00. This one is by Ruff Hewn. These prices are better than shopping consignment.
I always need more sweatshirts. This pretty blue one by Russell was in great condition, is a soft heavyweight cotton and will be perfect with my yoga pants for $1.00.
I just love NOT paying retail!
So, I guess you’ve all noticed my new banner?! I’m proud to say that I did it myself. If you’re looking for some free photo software to play around with, try Picasa and Photo Filtre. You can download both of them for free. I used Picasa for the collage of photos, then saved it and went to Photo Filtre for the borders and text. It was fun! I didn’t have any idea what I was doing, but I played with it until it worked and I was happy with it. I think it’s a fresh new look for my banner!
I can’t wait to share what I did on Saturday with you. Just call me part-time floral design assistant!
Don't Miss a Post, join my list!

I love seeing what people buy at sales and how much they paid for them!
You did great!

Rhonda, I want to thank you for the referral to the photo websites. I was finally able to make a collage. I cannot figure out the borders though. I will keep trying.
Don’t you just love getting out on a spring morning and hitting the sales?
the feathered nest says
I meant to comment on your banner last time and totally forgot! It looks just great! Everything is so pretty all in bloom. We had a few yardsales in our neighborhood the week before so I guess it’s that time again!
Love your shells. I lvoe your new banner. And thanks for the info on how to do it. I love learning new things like this.

Rhoda, I love that blouse…that is so cute and you will really enjoy wearing it this season.
I’ve been so busy at work that I haven’t had time for yard sales yet. 🙁 Of course, that saves me a little money, too!
I love, love your new banner. You are so smart! It is very pretty and very “you”. 🙂
Hi Rhoda…If it ever stops raining here in WA I think the yardsales will start…I am waiting….LOVE all your finds…especially the clothes!
You really did a fantastic job with your banner….it looks great..
I like all your ‘finds’…I’d like to shop in your neighborhood…..
Thanks for the visit and comment of the 86 year old lady…I think she left no doubt as to what she was saying….Betty

Sandi McBride says
Oh a girl after my own heart! I love a bargain and I love a yard/garage sale. They are so much fun. I loved the seashells, too. But the blooming trees, the pictures are just out of this world!
Love the finds! I need to post pics of what I found at my sales on Saturday. Isn’t it just great getting to find little treasures! It was my first sale day of the year and I did pretty good! Looks like you found some nice stuff yourself!
Great finds! Wow
I love your new header too!
