I am a wife, a mother, an auntie and a friend. I love thrifting, garage sales, re-purposing, creating, painting, anything that makes our little rental home more welcoming, comfortable and cozy. I have discovered the "art" of amateur photography & I love the idea of capturing the beauty in the ordinary everyday things that surround us. Blogging is a wonderful way to make new friends and share with people who have the same interests. My personal taste in decorating leans towards "casual cottage/coastal decor". I now have a small shop on etsy, called "SandySeashore" where you'll find some of my vintage finds, my photography and some handmade things. I hope you take the time to check it out! Thanks for droppin' in!

Frugal Frenchie's Garage Sale Goodies July 9, 2011

Hey There! Hope everyone is doing well on this fine summer afternoon!
This morning I went out to a few garage sales and found some more goodies.
One thing in particular was a really good find, but i'll tease you a bit and keep that one for last! LOL

 I found these old prints for $1 each.

 These are the backs.
 Last weekend my milk frother stopped working...today I found a new one!
 It was still in the box $1
 I quickly snapped up this old "milk glass" container, it looked to be in rough shape, but a little "vim" and a scrub brush fixed that in no time! $1

 Isn't it pretty!? I do love milk glass!
Normally I'm too cheap frugal to spend this much on something like this, but I couldn't resist these. Six iron Dragonfly napkin rings for $5. (I know, I splurged a little!) LOL
 This gorgeous studded black leather belt for $1
 A blue glass dish with beach glass for $1
 Large Ikea print for $1
 Ooops! How's she get in this post?
 A pretty beach scene with a lovely rustic frame for, yup, you guessed it, $1
 Cross stitched "Home Rules" for $1
 Nautical looking frame $2

 In a recent post, I showed you my ideas/plans for our little bathroom... One of the things I wanted was a bath caddy, to hold a book, a candle or whatever...
   Found one! $2

It's funny that sometimes when you get an idea in your head, the items you need to make that idea a reality slooooowwwwly fall into your hands...has that happened to you too?

Are you ready to see my GREAT FIND!?......

 I found this absolutely gorgeous glass vessel sink with drain kit, 
still in the box, for a mere 

I was thrilled with this find!!!

Maybe the bathroom makeover will happen sooner than I anticipated!
I'm going away for a week to visit my niece in Saskatchewan, I may blog from there, we'll be giving her kitchen a makeover, so it will be a busy time.

 Here are the "BEFORE" pictures..

 Stay tuned for the "AFTER"...
See you later.
Thanks for following...
