My Latest Yard Sale Finds – 3

For round three I decided to model a few of my yard sale finds myself. Try not to laugh too hard at my modeling skills. If my 5’5.5″ frame hadn’t already decided my modeling fate for me, I just sealed it by these photos. 

Matt was my photographer, so in most of the pictures I’m laughing or just giving him the ‘Take it already!’ look.  We had fun being completely ridiculous together though, so that’s what counts!

All my finds this time around were clothes, so this one goes out to all the frugal fashion divas out there!

This dress 50 cents! Y’all….it still had the tag on it!! It was priced at $34.99 and then marked down to $8.99, which is what it looks like they bought it for. But not me…50 cents for this lady!

I apologize in advance for the slightly blurry photos. If I wasn’t laughing, then he was laughing. Seriously, we had way too much fun doing this.

Garden Photos (Summer 2014)

I often say that I could stare at a single flower all day if given the chance. Flowers are one of my favorite things God created. The intricate details and brilliant colors make my heart skip a beat. In the past, my flowers have been confined to a vase where they don’t survive all that long. Now that we have a house and have planted our first and second flower gardens, I wake up in awe of the new blooms each morning. I love tending to my flowers every day. Watering, weeding, pruning, but mostly just staring and trying to capture with the camera what I see with my naked eye.

I hope you enjoy some of the photos I’ve taken this summer! Below we have a rose of sharon, some hydrangeas, bergenias, and a hibiscus.

When Lisa and I decided to start a blog together in May of 2013, we knew we had a lot of planning and researching to do before just jumping right in. During those 4 months of planning, I think it’s safe to say that most of our time went to designing our graphics. Seems crazy since our first design was so simple, right? Oh boy, if you only knew how many times we changed our minds though.
