Day 93

Garage sale finds! I love them, and I cannot wait until I can get out to pick again. I want to redo my son's room so it's not so "castley." He's not a little boy anymore. So I am going with the street signs (if I can find any.. obviously I won't be out chopping down stop signs or anything) and cool baseball/sports memorabilia. He had his first game of the season today, (they won) but I was behind a fence, so I got mostly the chain link look. I'm sure there will be SO many game photos to post in the near future, that I will take a "find" when I have one.

Here is my license plates score. Illinois plates from 1960 to 1975 give or take a few. Then I picked my birth year and husband's birth year to add to the collection.

Neat! My husband has been saving his plates over years in hope to one day have a real man-cave to hang them in. ;)

I'm so jealous of those of you who can find little treasures like this at garage sales. I'm a notoriously unsuccessful garage saler. Great idea on the new bedroom theme!

How neat! Garage sales takes a special eye to find treasures and you got that eye.

What a fun idea for decorating a room. Too funny, because when we move Cameron wants a castle and dragon room :)

Great theme for a boys room and wonderful subject for your POD. It's interesting how many times Illinois change the color of their plates. I hope you'll treat us to a photo of the finished product after you get the room decorated...I love your style!

Amanda said...

Awesome treasures!
