This past weekend we traveled to Olean to spend some time with Tom's mom. As always we had a wonderful time with her and we were even able to sneak out to dinner with a friend without Easton. We don't get out often just adults so it's always nice when we do. My favorite part of the weekend, though, was a garage sale we went to where I walked away with some of the best items for only $3.50 - seriously. Growing up garage sales were one of my favorite things, I took them quite seriously with whatever limited budget I was given. Now, they're just exciting, if not more because I'm no longer looking for trivial things for myself, I'm searching for items to fill our home with beauty and uniqueness. Everything I got were items I went back to the sale after leaving knowing I would regret not getting them and I was lucky no one else had snagged them first...
These glass goblets first caught my eye with their subtle blue color and then the 25 cents price per cup had me sold. They won't be practical for dinner parties larger than two people, but I know I'll use them often to either make myself a cocktail at night or when my girlfriend comes over for a movie. I've used one glass once and it sounds silly, but drinking my lemonade from it made me feel more sophisticated.
This glass dome and plate was $1. I was sold on the price and thrilled when I noticed they were made in France. After a trip to Paris when I was 18, I've held a strong love for all things french. I plan on using this as a table decoration when we don't have company but also will be using it for a simple charcuterie spread for guests.
My favorite find from the weekend were these candle sticks for $2! I loved the brass color and staggering heights of them all. At the moment I don't have space in our little apartment for them but I can see these in our future house one day on a mantle with sleek white candles.
With a super limited budget these days, I'm excited and optimistic to frequent more garage sales for pieces at amazing deals.
I'm a twenty-something mama who honestly has no clue what I want to do in life at the moment. For the longest time that scared me but now I embracing it and documenting it here.
