earrings and garage sale goodies


So we have finally managed to have our 100th post!  I thought we should celebrate with a little giveaway.  Who likes free earrings? 

But no, these were a little much.
Sometimes the super good deals I get from Twinkle World need a little surgery before they are suitable for wearing by me.  :)

So I took those insanely large earrings apart and made these.  Remember?
And I love them.  They are super light weight and I even forget I have them on sometimes.

I made a pair for me, and a pair for Elizabeth and our mom when they came to visit last week.
Would you like a pair?  
I have three extras to send to y'all!
Just comment below with what you favorite post has been so far, 
or what you'd like to see more of.  
Hurry, giveaway ends Sunday, October 20th at 11:59pm CST.

**This giveaway is now closed**

Anyways, onto my latest garage sale finds:
I hit several community sales and got some good stuff.  The little white table was $5.  I can't wait to show you what I've done with it.  The hydrangea wreath, $4, will get an easter makeover for next year.

And oh, the legos.  I've never managed to get legos at a garage sale before.  I hit the jackpot this time though.  Four boxes plus the packing envelope all for $30.  My boys were SO excited.  


The scooter ($5) will be a christmas gift for the little girl that asked for one.  The Minnie Mouse PJ's and swimsuit ($1each) are being worn to death by my little girl who tells people her name is Minnie. The tripod ($5) was my favorite thing for me.  Maybe you'll see some nicer pictures around here ;)  The headband on the table were free.  The sippy cups were $2 and I was feeling generous.  The books were 25 cents each and they are in a wooden holder thingy (technical term) that was 50 cents.  It was so much fun!  It makes shopping at the thrift store almost seem pricey!

Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to comment for your chance at some rocking earrings of your own!

  1. Hi Caroline~ I'm a new subscriber to your blog and am loving it so far! I'd love to win a pair of the cute earrings that you modified and multiplied... I especially like when you display all your garage sale and thrift store finds, it's always so much fun to get a great deal on fun stuff! I love your apple crisp recipe too, it makes the house smell so yummy when it's in the oven. Keep up the great work! Vicki Austad from Chaska, Minnesota
