Some Yard Sale Finds

Lately, there have been so many yard sales in my neighborhood! Here are just a few items I've found recently. 
This sweet vintage spice rack was $2.00! 
It's damaged in the upper right-hand corner but, that's nothing a little wood patch and white paint can't fix!
 The after photo! 
I just love it now and it fits perfectly in my kitchen!
This clock was $.50 and did not work! But, oh well, I really don't need another clock. Maybe it would make a nice chalkboard!
I just removed the clock part and used some wood patch to fill in the little hole, then sprayed with chalkboard paint! 
I also found four of these small dainty cups and saucers for just $1.00! A week later, I happened to see this same cup and saucer at our local antique mall selling for $12.00! 
I used my glue gun to attach the cup and saucer to the candle holders. . . . yet another yard sale find!

I am constantly amazed at what I discover at yard sales! Yes, there's certainly a lot of just plain old junk to wade through! But, I love to find something unique, or something I can fix up or paint to my own liking.  I could never begin to decorate my home without all these treasures I find at yard sales! 

I'm linking to Thrifty Finds this Week at Southern Hospitality
The Nester for "Best Yard Sale Finds Ever"!
