Clever Jewelry storage

I found a paper towel holder, two hooks, and a spice rack at an estate sale and used them for my jewelry holders.  So the towel holder was $1.  The hooks were 10 cents a piece and then the spice rack I found for a dollar.  You can find anything at estate sales, new and old.

The Creative Garden

Here are some pots my mom has collected over the years from Estate Sales. She always took whatever she could get. For example, pots that were broken into pieces or cracked. She would pay less then a dollar for them and make them look great in the garden. The table is another find at an auction. 

 My Dad loves to garden too.  He spends hours outside.  The stone path is a collection from years of travel around our country.  ALL FREE!  

Notice the broken pots that my mom has put together to make it functional. I love the look. The iron fence is another great find at an Estate Sale. Just wait until I show you my iron fence I had found at an auction!
