Chair: $1.00

Who doesn't love a garage sale?!?! Okay, maybe quite a few of you don't...but I have always gotten a little giddy at the prospect of finding that {perfect} treasure. Something someone else thinks is no longer useful, or possibly even "trash." Don't get me wrong, I also LOVE to find things at garage sales with store tags still on them! It happens pretty often, actually. Since my love of photography has grown, I get even more excited for garage sales. They are the perfect place to find awesome props!

Around lunch today, I noticed lots of action (as in cars parking everywhere in front of my house) in the driveway across the street. A garage sale was in full-swing. After I put Barrett down for a nap, I decided to stroll over for a quick look around. I almost didn't go, since the only cash in my wallet was a single one.dollar.bill. I was afraid I would find something, and have to ask to come back to pay and get it later. Embarrassing!

So, it was fate, when I saw this lonely 'ol chair just waiting for ME to claim it, and take it home!! Oh yes, my husband will be so excited. I can already hear his first question..."where in the heck are you going to keep that"? I don't know, but I had to have it!!

I have been looking for a little wooden chair at garage sales all summer (although I've only been to a few this year), one that I could paint and distress. Well...this one is already distressed for me! Okay, who wants to step up and be my first victim...ehem, I mean model, in this chair?!? I have big plans for him...the chair! You'll have to keep an eye out on my {photo blog} for more of this handsome fella!


  1. You crack me up!! Admittedly, I used to be one of those that was "too good for a garage sale" but I have come a LONG ways in a few short years! I now totally appreciate a great deal and finding fun things!!

    Love the chair!! I raid my parents house every time we are home looking for fun props!! :)

    Loving the new blog look too!! Fabulous!

  2. That chair is awesome. It had to be fate. I also love-love-love your new blog designs for both your personal and business blogs. Did you do all of the html, etc. your self? They are just perfect. :)

  3. How exciting! Love the chair...I have one similar on my front porch...stays there year 'round with flowers or something on it! I haven't gone to many garage sales this year either...I still have hope! lol
