Yard Sale Finds

I am finally getting a few minutes to post about some sweet
treasures I found while yard saling this weekend.  Not much luck
finding furniture for the shop, but finding lots of other fun things.
Here's a little vignette to go with our non-stop rainy weather.
Found these darling little rain boots and couldn't resist them.  Perfect for
holding a few flowers.


From the picture you probably can't tell, but they are children's boots ~ size 6.
I just couldn't resist them.
Also at this same sale I found this little garden basket and tiny 
little bird.


The basket is just large enough for a few garden tools and
makes a delightful vignette for my living room mantel.


There's nothing like some cheery sunflowers to brighten a rainy day.


If only it would stop raining long enough to do some gardening.

We woke up to frost on the ground this morning! No sunflowers for a while for us!!

Love those little boots! They remind me of the ones Bill bought for me after I was bit by the rattlesnake. He won't let me go to the bee yard without them on!

I so love this vignette. I would have looked at the boots, said "cute" and walked right on. You have an eye for the creative side of yard sales! All pieces fit together so nicely.

Ok, so I have kids and the boots would NEVER stay on the shelves but that is such a cute idea! Maybe I will do that in their room after rainy season. Then they'd be there when I need them. Thanks!
