Yardsale Buys from last weekend

I never got around to blogging on Monday or Tuesday, so better late than never. On Saturday, I bought the stuff in the first pic ($5 new bathroom caddy, $3 mirror, $5 vintage endtable, .50 Milkbone toy and .50 Happy Birthday bowling pin.

Then on Sunday I found a very rare Sunday only yardsale and bought: $1 Calvin Klein sweater (possibly for DH), $1 Catchphrase game (the game isn't what I thought it was, so I will just re-sell it at my next yardsale), $2 Scene It game, and got a free teddy bear.

Here's a Before and After of my mirrors. The new mirror replaced one at the bottom of a staircase. I bought the old one with the fake stained glass at a yardsale years ago. Funny thing is, I think I paid $3 for that one too. I'm going to put it back in the yardsale stream in spring of '09.

The past few days I've been having some sort of cold/allergy problem. Anyhow my question is, why hasn't someone invented a diet pill that will just temporarily deaden your sense of taste/smell? I've not been able to taste or smell food for several days now and it makes me not want to eat.

Ooh I love the mirrors. I wish I lived in the States, they have such lovely things on sale during yard sales. Have fun with your new buys!

You scored at the yardsales, nicely done. I really like that round mirror.

And that's a really good idea about the diet pills.

Love that mirror!! Definitely an upgrade from what you had before.

It will be a little sad to get rid of my ugly oak stained glass mirror - I've had that mirror since before Jacob was born and I would scoot down the stairs with him and we would stop and look at ourselves in that mirror. Oh well, its ugly and time for it to go.
