~A Fun Saturday~

Hello everyone! It was a fun Saturday for me! I started out at "The Mother Of All Garage Sales"! It was so fun walking around and taking it all in. I saw a basket for $10 I was going to go back and get it and a sheep mold...but when I went back to get the basket it was gone...and I totally forgot about the sheep mold...darn. BUT.....I did get this awesome old tote! It has a handle in the middle that spins completely around. I am assuming it was an old tool carrier. It has some writing on the front of it, I haven't been able to make out what it says yet. And the gal at the same booth was selling these wool eggs and miniature flower pillows for a $1.00 each!

I got this mold pan for $1.00 too!

I met up with a friend and our next stop was an amazing prim shop called Primitive Treasures. GREAT shop! I could have bought so much more but I had to make choices! I will be going back! This bunny was the first thing I saw when I walked in and he said "take me home"! I love the bowl and the paper mache eggs and the prim carrots! It was a fun stop!

Then it was off to The Salvation Army! I got all of these goodies for $5.00! More makeovers! :)

And I have to share this picture! This wonderful blue cloth you have been seeing in all of my pictures I got from Lisa! I ordered this wonderful Spring stitchery from her and she tucked the blue cloth in as a surprise! Thank you Lisa I love everything!

And I have a couple more makeovers to show. I got a wooden bowl at the Goodwill. It was painted mustard and under that someone painted a watermelon (seeds and all) I painted two coats of black and then scored it with a knife so it would look used and then coated it with a dark walnut stain.

And this was a project for a good friend of mine who brought a few pieces over that she asked me to makeover. This is a wall cabinet that will go in her kitchen. She wanted it a barn red color.

This is before~

And this is after~

That's about it for me! It's been a busy week and a busy weekend...and it isn't even over yet! Hope you all are enjoying your weekends as well! It was a chilly but dry and sunny day here! Until next time...take care! ~Sarah~

  3. Sarah, the finds you found are wonderful. The cabniet you madeover looks great. Love the star you added. I like how you added the cutting marks in the bowl to make it look used. Cool idea! You are talented!! dawn

  4. Wow, you had a good prim weekend! Those makeover's do become addicting don't they? Great job on the cabinet and I love the tool carrier bet that would have cost $$$ at an antique store! Love the bunny to so glad to hear that certain things talk to you too when you walk in a prim store:)

  5. Sarah I'm in awe at the wonderful items you found at the garage sale! It's like it was a store....
    Oh you can make several 'pantry cakes' with that cool.
    I just love all our makeovers - you are a very talented gal.


  6. The cabinet that you made over looks great and the star adds that special prim touch. I love your bowl too... ok, there really isn't much that I don't love (lol).

  7. Sounds like you had a great day! Wasn't mother of all garage sales fun?! I found a couple goodies, myself. :) I could of bought more but I held back. And Primitive Treasures is a lot of fun! I haven't been to her new location yet. And your makeovers are just perfect! You have been busy!

  8. Morning Sarah! Sounds like a successful shopping day for sure. Love the idea of the knife marks in the bowl. I'll have to remember that.

    Great cabinet makeover as well. Do I see a new career ahead??
