It's a Tweet-Up!

I recently met two new Twitter friends who are in the area for an meet-up/tweet-up at an estate sale: @GarageSaleDiary and @KristinaCombs. We had a great time chatting about thrifting and blogging, and looking at the stuff for sale. Sometimes, it so nice to meet people in person when you've been chatting with them online for awhile!

It was slim pickins for me personally, but I did find these things:

Ugly wooden candle sconces for $2, a little framed print, and old broken granny glasses.

This little frame had an unfortunate meeting with a paintbrush...

...but it is a pretty little painting...

...this is just wrong, but I think I can fix it. Stay tuned...

Now, there was a moment a few weeks ago that I needed this specific type of glasses. If I could just remember what the project was. Hmmm.
You might have noticed this was a RePurpose sale. Yep, we were filmed for an upcoming Cash N Cari episode! If we don't end up on the cutting room floor that is ;) Stay tuned - it might air in September according to a producer on site.

That's all folks. Not a big haul, but it was fun meeting other junkers :)


  1. Thanks so much for you sweet comments on my chair, Jill! You made my day! I saw MMS tutorial on grain sacks- she's my bloggy hero. ;) Someday maybe I can afford the real deal, but at least these are fun to make! Your estate sale looks like fun- I'd love to do something like this with my local peeps. Have a great weekend!

  2. YAY! what a fun time! It was so nice to meet you in person! Let's do it again soon! I can't wait to see what you do with those sconces!

  3. So I'm late to the comment party but just wanted to add that it was so fun meeting you! Same as Jen, I'm also interested in seeing what you do with your finds. We need to meet up again and go saling!

  4. You have a very special way of seeing things...


Thanks for taking the time to leave your thoughts! I appreciate each and every one of you!
