An Afternoon at Sally's

I did a little shopping!

While my kids were enjoying their last day at Summer Rec., I went to visit my friend SALLY.

I think she knew I was coming because I found some great pieces.

A bounty for sure.

I think my favorite is the large wooden box, it is going to be perfect for storing my outdoor cushions.

I love the iron legs on the basket.

Won't this make a great plant stand.

This sweater is for winter sewing projects, a pillow perhaps.

A key, well, good for just about anything.

I love all the little details on this cute end table, legs, handle, two tiers, just all of it.
I am thinking white with maybe some BLUE?
Yeah, I said blue.
I will not stop trying to like the color blue in my home.

This is my reading list for the weekend while we are at the beach.
I finally used a gift card from Amazon to order these three books.

That was my day.
How about you?

I am sharing my new bounty with Cindy from My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday, and Debra from Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday.


  1. What wonderful finds! Makes for a great day, doesn't it?

  2. Oh my goodness, what wonderfully fabulous treasures you found! I love, love, love the little Frenchy end table sooooo much! That would fit right in at my house. :)

    Visiting from Show & Tell Friday...

  3. I loved them all; but, that curvy leg table is my favorite!

  4. Yep, I agree, that table is a show stopper in the rough. You have a great eye! (And great taste in books, too.) I have them all and they are FAB! Enjoy your weekend.

  5. Great finds and photos. Can't wait to see how your furniture piece come out in the white and blue.

  14. Alaina -

    I have decided to visit your neck of the woods. You NEVER have a bad day treasure hunting -- be it thrift stores, yard sales or flea markets! I love that plant stand.
    Enjoy these last weeks of summer.
