Amazing...

Do you ever sit and think "Dang I just amaze myself"?  I had just that kind of moment this week while digging in our garage. 

As I've mentioned in a previous (like I have oh so many...lol) post we have only been in our house since mid July of 2010.  When we started packing up for our big move (and it was daunting if I say so myself) I was putting things into totes and boxes to yard sale once we moved.  Now mind you I had been storing stuff (years and years of stuff) in the basement of the old house and a garage that we rented to yard sale in the spring of every year that we lived there...12 years in fact.  Most of the stuff I have stored are things that I had purchased over the years and then as we all know tastes change and then you buy more stuff but the stuff your replacing is so nice you just can't get rid of it.....right?

So anyway I had something in my mind that I wanted to find (since I've started on this Shabby Chic journey)...oh it was a top to a cheese plate that I was going to yard sale.  I had two of them and when I saw all the glass bells that everyone was using I thought....Hey I could use that....so I used the one I had in my dining room and then went on the hunt in the "Yard Sale" box.  As I'm digging through I'm thinking I'm not going to sell alot of the things in there because...what is that saying...What was once old is new again!!  Now I can't wait until the weather gets warmer so the hubs and I can get in the garage and dig, dig, dig!

I have to say I am totally addicted to the thrift store and GW now...I even hit the Salvation Army shop every once in awhile.  I'm finding some amazing things and I've been busy taking pictures and cleaning silver.  I think I can figure out how to post the pictures but just need the hubs to take them off the camera and put them on the computer.  I have no computer savvy at all!  Please bear with me as I learn!

Tomorrow is Friday and I LOVE Fridays and "Show and Tell Fridays" at My Romantic Home

I love checking out all the great ideas from all the bloggers who feed my addiction!

Blessings.......
