Another Weekend of Garage Sales!

This past weekend the weather was nice and cool...so what does a girl do? She gets up early and hits the road in search of BARGAINS!!!! This Saturday my sis and I headed out early and came home with a car loaded with GOODIES!!! I will only show you just some of our treasures...if I showed you everything...you would need a cup of coffee and 10 minutes to waste to see it all...oh well...I hope you enjoy the pics!
We are still working on our kitchen remodel...counters are in...faucet and sink installed... 80% of the painting is complete...still installing the beadboard...hope to have 90% completed by tomorrow night. You will get a little peek of the kitchen in the pics...I promise I will post the whole kitchen soon!
We are leaving early Thursday for our last home football game of the season...can't wait to get there for two awesome days of tailgating...pep rally...and the GAME!!! We were really lucky with our tickets for this game...we will be seating on the 35 yard line with all the players families...now my oldest daughter is really the lucky one...she will be seating in one of the luxury boxes with all the past players...very well known guys...I will post after the game to tell you who she met with during the game...I'm soooo jealous!!!! WAR EAGLE...BEAT BAMA!!!!

Wow!! You really did get some fabulous buys this weekend. I love the old picnic basket and really like how you have them stacked (and that they're being utilized for storage).
Have fun at the game and have a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Love your picnic basket collection! What great finds! Thanks for your visit to hill country house and your input on the painting dilemma. Love your college/football talk - I have a daughter at Vanderbilt and another who is starting to look at colleges. We have had lots of talk around here about Auburn and sorry, Alabama, too! What pretty girls you have - have a great Thanksgiving.

Oh, you did find some wonderful things! :) (I love the white shelf especially!) I also am loving what I see of your kitchen! Are you painting your bead board or staining it? I can't wait to see more of your kitchen when you've finished! :)

I hope you have a great Thanksgiving! :)

Next year we need to figure out where ya'll tailgate so we can meet somewhere. We didn't even get to Auburn for any games this year, mostly due to the situation with my mom, but I'm hoping that next year we'll get there for at least a couple of games.

WAR EAGLE!
