Unique Flower Pots

Flowers are one of the good things about summer. To add flair to your beautiful flower garden, if you happen to visit a garage sale, look for unique and interesting stuff that you can use as flower pots. We found some stuff at the garage sale that we can use:

1. the milk can- $10, painted it yellow and planted with mixed flowers

2. a coal bucket - $1, planted with lollipop daisies

3. an old broken torchiere lamp - we pulled from our basement, took the base/stand off and stuck it in the ground and planted lavender petunias.

Cool and unique flower pots don't have to cost a lot of money.
Be creative! Don't be afraid to be different and make your flower garden look like no other!

bargain shopper

You might think stuff from garage sales or thrift stores are not really pretty, but you can wear them and work them and flaunt them. It doesnt have to look so cheap. Just be confident and show your individual style. You don't have to follow the fad. You don't have to buy those expensive designer brands. So when you go shopping next time, you might want to drop by the garage sales or the thrift shops first.
1. The necklace I'm wearing is just 50 cents at the garage sale.

2. The leather purse I got for only $1 at the garage sale.

3. The purple belt, I got from the thrift shop/goodwill/salvation army for $3

So when you go out of the house or just driving around, look at the signs and check out these cool bargains. You never know, you might find a vintage top or an antique craft that is worth something.

garage sale shopping

Yes I'm that kind of girl. I always look for the cheapest deals and for me, garage sale shopping or thrift store shopping is like treasure hunting for me. You might not believe me, but I found some cool and hip stuff from there for just a dollar or less. The price is the best thing about it.

Would you believe it if I tell you I got this leather purse for only a dollar from a garage sale.

And here's more of the treasures I found:jewelries for only 50 cents
