2nd Time Around: Free garland for the porch

Welcome to 2nd Time Around! Here’s where you can share your thrifty second hand treasures by creating a post and linking to Mr. Linky. Last week we had some issues with Mr. Linky…he was in and out all day. Hope he cooperates a little better this week.

These three pictures are some garland that I got at my daughter’s most recent garage sale FREE! Vikki from Magnolia Memories brought some stuff to Kelli’s garage sale including this green beaded garland. Kelli noticed it and suggested I get it for my porch. So, Vikki just gave it to me!

I love the way it dressed up this table on the porch and sparkles in the sunlight. This picture was made in the early evening with the flash.

Sometimes it is the most simple things that bring the most pleasure. Don’t you agree?

Thanks for stopping by!

I love that garland Diane! I am hoping to participate tomorrow. I was looking around and trying to decide what to take a photo of. (My work computer is tied up working... and most of my photos are on the external attached to that.) I like your porch.

HI, Diane, I always appreciate you stopping by! Hope you're well. Oh, we use AVG for virus protection too, great program.

Lynn said...

Diane, I am sorry to be such a dud, here, but I can't get the logo for anything I want to put on my blog! Maybe I need to take some of Betty Boop's AVG medi myself!
I do love your porch table, though...ALL of it!
