Thrifty Finds in Muskoka!

McG and I had an opportunity to do some exploring a couple of weeks ago while we were visiting friends at their cottage.

Our day-trip into Bracebridge Ontario found us stopping at the local Royal Canadian Legion for a HUGE yard sale!! 
 I managed to find a couple of great things and only spent $1.50!

A small enamelware pail with its wooden handle, a blue glass carafe, and a bed-sheet.
  You can see the colour of the glass better in this shot.  It's much like a great  blue Ball Mason Jar!

I LOVED the colours of the bed sheet and couldn't leave it there for 50 cents...I think its just what I need to finish up a storage solution in the laundry room...and that turquoise and orange and green pattern
...mmmm LOVE IT!!!
  Here's a closer look...

Oh and by the way...the laundry room is finally almost ready for a reveal!  It's only been, what, seven months since we showed you  "our dirty little secret".  Seven months we have spent on it, slowly making it more presentable...and it's still not my "dream laundry room" yet but its more functional and does look prettier than before!  This sheet will help to put the finishing touches on a storage solution in there.

Well, that's it for my Muskoka yard sale finds...
Do you visit yard sales while you are out of town???

I'd LOVE to hear from you - please leave a comment!!
