First up is this fantastic basket of sticks. I found it for $4 and just had to have it. I put it on my dining room table and added some moss covered rocks to the bottom of it for interest. Not a bad looking centerpiece for $4. (And because I know you are going to ask, the rocks are from TJ MAXX from several months ago. I think they were $5.)
Here it is straight from the yardsale:
Minus the raffia and add some rocks:
Total love! It goes so well with my indoor/outdoor rug that is under the table.
Next up, is this great old suitcase. It was marked $3 and I LOVED it. The inside is in great shape, and it still has the address stickers on the outside. Just out of curiosity I googled the name "A. Herenroth" and found an author to a book titled "Russians say it this way ... Ninety-nine Russian idiomatic expressions and their American equivalents" from 1945. Wouldn't it be so cool if this was his suitcase?
I also found a wonderful old antique wire basket for $3 and these jars for .25 cents each.
