Yard Sale Finds

All I have to say about this weekend is BOOKS! I am in back to school mode, but I wanted to take a break from prepping my classroom and hit some sales Saturday morning. There weren't many advertised, so I really wasn't expecting much. I didn't find anything for the house, but I did find a lot of books for my classroom or so I thought.

I told the boys to look through the books and see which ones they wanted to keep and which ones could go to school. Fast forward a few minutes...I come back in the room and they made two piles-one to keep and one for school. Guess how many books they put in the school pile...3 yup only 3. I had to override them on that decision, I know they love to read, but really only 3 for school?!? They are silly little guys!

I did find some clothes for me too! I found a cute teal long sleeve and this great Rusty brand brown and pink hoodie sweater! I love sweaters for casual days around here in the fall.

I also found this great chunky sage green scarf for $1. I need scarves for yard duty days during the winter, it gets mighty chilly some days!

At the next sale I found a this cute skirt and 2 shirts. I think the green one will go with one of the skirts I found a few weeks ago! The black one is long sleeved and perfect for layering.

So that's about it for me this at yard sales weekend! I did get some projects finished so I'll post about those in a couple of days! Head on over to Rhoda's at Southern Hospitality and see what everyone else scored this weekend.

Until next time,
