Putting my yard sale goodies to work for me...


On Sunday, Spotty and I showed you these goodies that I picked up at a yard sale last weekend; at that time I promised to share where I used some of these treasures...

The Wicker Planter: Even though I'm still not crazy about the color, I'm leaving it alone for now (although Coralie must have been reading my mind when she suggested painting it a nice cottage white because that was my first thought, too!!)... It's perfect for the oversized pot I plant my basil in every year. (And one of our little Chips, who happened to be on a peanut run, asked if he could be in the photo, too!!)


Pyrex Ovenware: Turns out it's also the perfect size for the salads I make to go with our supper most evenings!


Tea Kettle Timer: The timer has made its home in a corner of the kitchen counter for the time being...


Green Fringed Rug: I'm loving it in front of the sink right now...


... but I can think of so many other places throughout the house where it will also be used...

Have a happy Friday, everyone!.............

All your thrifty finds look great! Oh, and little Chippy on a peanut run. Too cute.

Thanks for visiting my blog and your kind words of sympathy. Have a marvelous weekend!

Love the way you say 'supper'. I grew up in the midwest where the evening meal was 'supper'. Then over 20 years in Arizona where it was 'dinner'. We've been back and forth across the U.S. a couple of times in different states and still refer to our evening meal as 'dinner'. It's a regional thing I guess. Cute.

You really got some nice goodies. I particularly love the shade of green on your little throw rug. And I have to say, that salad sure looks yummy!
