I heart free stuff.

My sister and I lucked out at a garage sale awhile back. We hit the tail end of it and as they were closing up, asked if we'd mind taking the stuff off their hands to avoid making a trip to the dump.

WOULD WE MIND?! Gee, free stuff, sure we'll help you out!

So these are a few of my favorite freebies we took off their hands.

Say hello to hubby's project last weekend. It was an o.k. shelf to begin with but he took it upon himself (ahhh I love 'im) to sand and stain it for me.

This would be what the lid of the cannister set looked like before. Pretty nast-ay. I didn't even go there in taking a picture of the actual cannisters. Iiick.

Needless to say, I scrubbed, bleached, even suffocated them in a soaking bathtub of Gain to make sure they were CLEAN. Oh, and then I scrubbed and bleached them some more.

Say hello to my pretties:

And, I got a bunch of cute tops, too! This never happens, but I am about to model it for you:

Ok, I lied, because I'm now going to show you my $4.00 Target top which I used a gift card for, making it also fahreeeeee. :)

Mommy needs a tan...


  1. Lucky you! Those canisters look great now that you did all the cleaning. :)

  2. I love hitting yard sales at the end when everything is free or almost free :)

    And HELLO... you're gorgeous enough to actually be a model!

  3. Wow! Great free stuff! AND I love the pretty shirt :) Target rocks!

  4. Wow you really cleaned up those canisters! Good job! Oh and you look great too.

  5. ~WOW~ Janie you look great!
    I do like both tops too.

    The canisters are really adorable.
    I'm sure that the shelf will be precious when finished.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
