    It was hideously perfect - I so wanted it [MENTION=215617]judy27[/MENTION] - but couldn't risk it busting out from under me - like yesterday's Let The Bodies Hit The Floor-kinda day I had :giggle2: Someone had obviously done some serious hard time(out) in that chair!

    I went to one quick yard sale this morning and picked up this for $2. I actually only bought it for the chain. I break them like crazy.

    I got THIS today!!!!! It is an acorn picker upper!!!!! I just saw it on EBAY for $59.99 and I got it for $5!!!!!!

    My BFF picks up acorns.... which means that I pick up acorns and puts them in big 20 pound Tidy Cats Litter buckets and feeds the squirrels all year long. We usually get around 15 buckets!!! This should be fun!!!!!

    It does - FIL has one and picks up his pecans with it (he's almost 90). My sister has one too.

    Vintage 70s wooden purse. I love love love these purses. I bought one online, I'm waiting for it to arrive and a lady in a FB group is sending me an original kit for free so I can do my own design. $15 at goodwill.

    My last trip to the thrift store I found a pair of Sketcher shoes for $1.

    Then, the last two yard sales I went to, I found a robe for $2 and some Bath and Body Works lotions and body spritzes for $2. I love finding Bath and Body Works products at yard sales.

    Yesterday, I went to 2nd time around and found a pretty coffee cup it's blue with white polka dots. I love it for drinking hot tea. Then, I also found 2 pairs of warm fuzzy socks.

    I also went to The Arc and I found 2 scars, 2 pairs of earings, 2 long sleeve shirts and 4 sweaters.

    Grand total was $12.75.

    I would post pics of my finds but my camera is acting crazy.
