Treasure Hunting

 Once upon a time there were two sisters.  
One day, they decided to go "garage sailing" together to find treasures.
The day started off very beautifully with tea and coffee, and amazing treats from a wonderful bakery.

The two sisters were very successful in buying things they needed, and finding wonderful treasures together!
By the end of the day, the little van was full, and the sisters were happy and excited with what they had acquired.

My wonderful finds.....all this for less than $60!

And a few favorites.....starting with this beautiful edition of Lord of the Rings, illustrated by Alan Lee!

And next these adorable shoes for Ian when he's a bit bigger!

And I got two more books for my Dr. Seuss collection!

And some fun clothes for a few bucks....the shirt has my birth year on it, I mean, how cool is that?!


  1. Ooh, looks like you're quite the shopper! I am loving the deals..I like never ever get good deals when I garage sale. I'm very unlucky, haha. -Charissa

  2. Haha! I usually feel so cheap asking for a "deal" on something that's already super cheap, but Breanne led the way, and I was like, 'if I can get it for cheaper...why not!' :P

  3. Wow, impressive finds! I wish I could find even ONE good item at most yard sales. =P

  4. Our method was going mostly to pretty well to do people's garage sales, which is why, I think we got such great stuff! :) But there were a few real "garage sales" where we found ourselves pawing through a slightly dusty, slighty musty smelling garage, and found some pretty nice things too! :)
