weekend treasures

It's time to share thrifty treasures over at Rhoda's:

There were so many yard sales this weekend~holy moly!
I had made my list and had about 12 on it, but only made it to 2 or 3 on my list because there were so many signs for ones along the way, I had to stop.
Here's my loot:
greenery in a tin .75, cream hanging tin 1.00, frame 1.00

I'm trying to decide what to do in my girls' rooom. Both of them are all of a sudden anti-pink, so I may be painting some of these, but they were just too darn cute to leave. And here's the kicker~these were between 3 yard sales, but look how well they go together! I saw my friend, Chelsea, out with her mom and she was debating about the pink hanging tin, but I couldn't leave it behind. So, Chelsea, if you found a place for it and decide you want it, it's yours! :)

shabby chic shelf with knobs: 3.00
2 pink tins: .50 each
pink hanging tin with crystal on the bottom: 2.00


2 frames and a pin: 2.00 total

I thought this was the coolest exit sign for 50 cents! I got it to put above the door in my boys' room:

This orange hanger caught my eye too~(how could it not??) Loved the knobs on it~they caught a little orange spray paint, but I loved the edging~see below

It reminded me of the trim that is all throughout our house, so I had to get it for $1.50

I also got a few kids' folding chairs, some cute clothes for my daughters, and I was out of money after 1 hour! (I started the morning with $18) It was a good morning~
