Weekend Goodies



I took the kids to Home Depot this weekend for their kids workshop. They had a blast! And on the way home, we stopped at a yardsale or two. Didnt find anything at the first few, but the last one we stopped at yielded a few finds.


Like this chippy, iron mini birdbath.



Another glass jar.


I love these birds! They look like they might be made of Syroco, but it doesnt say. They will look much better when I get them painted white.






Check out Rhoda's Southern Living for more great weekend finds!

That iron birdbath is so lovely! And you can never have to many glass jars. I definitely need to find me some more.
