Memorial Day & Thrifty Finds

I want to join in! I didn't think anyone would be doing this today, and in fact I forgot 'til this morning. I only went to one garage sale, and this cart is all I got. I love it, and of course I had to run out and get some flowers! It was $3. If you would like to see other bloggers' finds, please visit Southern Hospitality
Just puttering around a bit in the garden. Can't wait to watch these flowers fill out over the summer. This old bike isn't rideable anymore, from the flat tire to that seat...ouch! The basket on the bike is mine from when I was little. Do you remember those pinwheels from your childhood? It seems I got a new one every summer, because I loved last year's one to death! I hope you have a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend, and please remember our soldiers.

Hi Carol,
I just found your blog through Rhonda’s event and have had such fun looking around. I love, love this bike filled with the sweet basket of flowers! I am curious about your Sear’s Roebuck home. Your front porch looks divine. Hope you are having a nice Memorial Day. ~Cathy~

Cute idea!!

Someone else got an old ladder and had flowers sitting on it in their garden. I liked that idea too.

My sister once had strawberry valances like yours. I loved them. She has since moved to a new kitchen, but I thought her "strawberry kitchen" was so cozy and I enjoyed visiting her there. I've enjoyed seeing all of your chalkware fruit. I have a chalkware basket full of flowers. I'm hoping to hang it in my garden room someday soon.
