Playing the yard sale game

   I am hooked on yard sales! Going out bright and early to find the best deals is like a game for me. A game I want to win. 
   Jules and I headed out yesterday to play that game. And I think we won that game. We ended up with a nice little haul from our morning out. Today I will share my findings with you.

   Of course I am always on the lookout for craft-related items for the Creative Cave. I found a jar of buttons, seashells and a string of beads. For my quest to make a Christmas ornament wreath I picked up more of the round bulb ornaments. I also got a nice little storage bin. A crafter can never have too many of those, right?

   In last week’s post, “Sunday Hodgepodge,” I mentioned needing to do something about a mess of cords on the counter. I have been researching ways to make something myself instead of buying something pricey at the store. Well, as luck would have it, I stumbled across a cord storage item at one of the yard sales. It is from Pottery Barn and even had a power strip stored in the back. I think it will work for my cord problem. I will share photos once I have it in place.

Always sad when our "Epic Yard sale" adventures come to an end. Maybe this Saturday we can go again. Maybe just one more day. LOL!

If I keep buying stuff I will run out of room in the Creative Cave! hahaha

The last yard sale I went to was at your mom's...the only thing we bought was one of your sister's wool quilts that Frankie fell in love with. <3
