2nd Time Around: $2.00 steps

Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking a post that features something that is a 2nd Time Around to you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, estate sale, etc. Please link your post rather than your blog, and link back to this blog.

Last week I mentioned that my friend and I did a craft show. The day before I found this little bench at a yard sale for $2.00. It was perfect for displaying some of our stuff. I knew I could find something to do with it later, and decided to use it on my porch for my pumpkins! Later, after it gets a fresh coat of paint, it will be perfect on the porch for plants!

Here’s a pic with the flash…..

I can't believe you got the shelf for $2.00, Diane! How neat ... I'm sure you're going to find all kinds of ways to use them.

Good morning Diane. I loved seeing your comment this morning. Your Halloween display is awesome. Especially in the dark. I bet Conner and Cooper love the pumpkins all lit up.

I scrolled down and had the best surprise. Your handsome guys are growing up. So many ducks. I can see why Cooper was frightened a bit. I enjoyed your post of the boys so much. Thank you for sharing these photos.

Hugs xoxo, Jeanne
