Yard Sale Find

One thing I miss in the fall is a 
good YARD SALE! 

This summer I snagged some great 
"finds" for my studio makeover. 
One little gem is my new/old 
bulletin board for $5.00 !! 

I'm using it more as a place to decorate. 
Remember the bulletin boards in 
your school classroom and how fun 
some teachers would decorate them? 

I added a piece of lace trim that 
my Grandma crocheted, a heart 
shaped basket that my sweet sis 
gave me years ago, along with 
a muslin angel I created with 
twine hair. Oh and of course a 
reminder to call Marie!

It's amazing how one person's trash 
really can become another person's 
 sweet treasure! 

Happy treasure hunting! 

Blessings & love, 
Edie Marie & Marie Antoinette

  3. I miss yard sales too, or car boot sales as they're called in the UK. I've just had my bedroom redecorated and I can't wait to create a new mood board to inspire me.
