My “No Yardsales Today” Haul

Today was a beautiful fall day. The perfect day for yard sales, however, I had to drive Adam quite a distance to work for a friends dad. I was on the road with him driving for 45 minutes just watching all the yard sales go by. As I am going rafting in West Virginia tomorrow, I was resolute NOT to spend my money at yard sales anyway. After I dropped Adam off I was going to drive straight home and get some crafting projects finished before I leave. But oh, the Siren song of the yard sales. I couldn’t resist. So I stopped at a few. Okay, I stopped at a lot, but some were real duds. So here are some quick pictures of the treasures I found today.

Okay, so I don’t have a back bone when it comes to yard sales. And I really don’t have one when it comes to craft supplies from yard sales. Well, the good news is that I only spent $22.00 on the whole lot. That still leaves me plenty of cash NOT to spend at any flea markets I pass on my way to West Virginia tomorrow!
