With that goal in mind, I am always on the lookout for some of the right pieces at yard sales. Sometimes that takes a long time. But when I came across this bag of letters at a yard sale, I was intrigued!
The lady said $5 for the bag and the letters spell out Sweet Dreams. I have been looking for an old sign that spells out Groceries for my kitchen and I cannot make the word groceries from those letters. However, I could use them for my sweet girl’s room. They would be perfect!
Imagine my surprise when I opened up the box and found the letters are from Pottery Barn….. They sell for $10 a letter. SCORE!
I love them and they add a sweet touch to the room. But what word would I add to the room?
I chose REST because the room is used for a guest room for both of my nieces and thought they would like a place to put up their feet and relax....
Two lessons from this story:
1. Wait to find the right pieces for a room. You do not have to finish the room today.
2. Make sure you look at all the bags, boxes and what looks like junk at a yard sale, you never know what you will find.
Another perfect find was this tea tray. I put my grandmother's Hot Chocolate set on it... the set is pretty and reminds me of her when I see it.
P.S. I am still on the lookout for a Groceries sign.
