TEAMWORK and Some Treasures

Close UP of the bee on the cornflower...I like it even tho it's fuzzy!!!
Hubby and I have been working on the new doors and trim. He puts up the new door frame and I stain and varnish the door and the new trim... BEFORE: Old core door and trim


Ta Da...NEW DOOR AND TRIM.... and solid oak. We have 2 doors and trim completed and 3 to do....

Pretty Little Blue Bird planter....it was a good weekend for treasure hunting....Kailee and I went out on Thursday. I went to 1 estate sale on Friday and also a couple of garage sales and on Saturday, hubby and I went to 3 estate sales before I had to work my shift at HQ




This sweet dress...LIKE NEW....for Kailee for Christmas...only 25 CENTS....I found her 9 pieces of clothing....AWESOME DEALS !!!!




These are estate sale finds from Saturday...sorry the "finds" aren't in order....





Most of these are from our garage sale hunting...and also going to a thrift store. Love the large blue plate. I should have asked the gal if she had more....wasn't thinking!!! I can't remember what Kailee found on Thursday.







Garage sale treasures and estate sale items. Yes...that is a PINK dish strainer!!! The earrings were 25 cents each and from one of those home parties...a couple of stamp sets at great prices.
I also bought some clothes for me at $3.00 per piece and I bought 2 tops and a skirt and went back today and bought 2 like new robes for $3.00 for both...1/2 off today.
There are many more treasures...just didn't want you to fall asleep....
It was a busy weekend at HQ and the people were buying furniture and more. It will be fun to see my check on Thursday. The money "made" goes right back out to the thrift stores, garage sales and estate sales...
I played "tablescape" and will show you what I came up with later this week. Take care!!
Happy Blogging!!
Warmly,
Deb :)
P.S. Many of you know Pearl from Pearl's Sentimental Journey....and she is pretty ill...and I would appreciate it if you would pray for healing for her. I don't feel comfortable sharing more and God already knows Pearl's situation...however we are to pray for one another!!! Thank You my Blogging Friends!!

Hi Deb, great finds you found there. I found some really neat things this weekend but I have not taken pics yet. Hopefully I will get them taken this week. Your door is beautiful, that's how things are done here too. I usually paint, stain, and wallpaper. LOL
Have a great week, Shirl

Wow, too bad we live so far apart because I would love to go to garage sales with you! I never find that much good stuff. You're welcome to come on out here to CA any time, we have lots and lots of garage sales and flea markets in my town every weekend :-) Clothes for $3.00 each are my cup of tea!

Love your new doors, Deb.

Hey Deb!
Girl, you hit the mother load this week! You did find the best stuff. The weather has been so hot down here where we live...yard sales have been slim to none lately. I hope that will change soon. I don't know what's going on with it. Thanks for the mention of Pearl. I am so sorry...she is such a sweetie. She will be in my thoughts and prayers. By the way...your new doors are so nice. I hope you have a great day!
Big Hug,
Queenie

Hi Deb!

Every time I come here I always wish I could junk shop with you - you find the coolest stuff!! LOVE the bluebird planter, the plates, etc, etc - such fun! Good eye! And I'm always impressed when folks find clothes...I just never take the time to look...perhaps I will now...

Wow, y'all did a great job staining and finishing your door - that's a ton of work and HARD to get right...nicely done!

Hope you have a big check!! Have smooth-"saleing" this weekend...may you find unbelievable bargains everywhere you go!!

Hugs & Blessings,
