Yard Sales + Flowers + {April Sponsors}

I went yard saling yesterday and helpfully relieved several burdened homeowners of their useless tchotckes. I spent $3.

But I would’ve spent $6 if I hadn’t been a ruthless, cold-hearted negotiator.

Not really.


But not really.

By the way, at least where I live, this is PEAK yard sale season: right now, for about the next six weeks. (Here are some yard sale shopping tips. And if you’re throwing a yard sale, some tips on that too.)

Andy brought these home for me yesterday.
Hello, they’re basically screaming in my love language. And emanating happiness all over my house. There’s joy shooting out of each bud like laser beams. I love spring.

And yard sales.

And any good deals. And writing posts where I keep waiting for the point of the post to come to me, but it eludes me. I love you guys. I wish I could send you tulips. Not roses though, not that you don’t deserve it, just that roses send a different message and you might think I’m coming on too strong.

I’m glad we had this talk.

Let’s see what deals my lovely sponsors have for us all this month!

Decorator in a Box

NEW sponsor with a super cool idea! Decorator in a Box is a service for the DIY homeowner who wants a little help from a professional designer but without breaking the bank. Who WOULDN’T love that?!

Change of Art

If “things” could make you happy, my pretty, easy-to-change Change of Art picture frame would bring lifelong joy. I seriously love it every single day. THIS is the way all frames should be made: take out the art without removing the mat or glass, and it levels it self when you put it back on the wall.
MAGIC, right? Click here if you missed my post about how these work. Best invention ever! Check out Change of Art and order your own gallery frames right here.

Warehouse Fabrics

Compassion Int’l

Compassion International is an advocate for children, to release them from their spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty.

Andy and I have been sponsoring and exchanging notes and gifts with our Compassion kids for *years.* It’s a top-notch organization that does amazing work! (In fact, my “sponsorship” with Compassion always has been – and always will be – unpaid, as a way to support the organization.) Come look into the faces of these kids who need to be sponsored.

Hope you have a great weekend, friends!

Let's connect


  1. Well I guess the only thing to say is tulips to you too my dear.


  2. Oohhhh boy. I love yard sale season. It’s prime “church sale” season right this second and around here May is when garage sale-ing really ramps up… I can’t wait!

  3. That decorator in a box idea is genius! Love it! And love the tulips. My fave!

    Have a fabulous yard sale-ing weekend, my friend!

    🙂 Linda

  4. I can’t wait to hit some yard sales! Woo hoo! My husband went today without me and bought a camel saddle. Yes, you read that correctly. I have no idea what we will do with it, but I guess it’s cool. lol 😉

  5. I love that you have sponsoring kids through Compassion for *years*. You guys rock. I am heading straight to that fabric link right this instant. I’m having floral fabric envy after seeing your cute pillow at your table!

  6. your tulips are beautiful Kelly! 🙂 hope you are having a great weekend!

  7. I love spring… and summer… and fall… now, Winter and I are not even on speaking terms, but 3 out of 4 t’isn’t bad, right?

    Those frames are jawdroppingly fabulous! I have to go see about those puppies, yo.

  8. Sigh…it’s killing me that I can’t be there saling with you. The garage sales here are no good. And way to go, Andy, with the tulips! I love that you guys have so much fun with your marriage!

  9. Tulips are the best! I saw a ton of signs for sales this weekend, but couldn’t take advantage… maybe next week!

  10. Saw the first yard sale signs up around here this weekend! Can’t wait to spend money! 🙂

  11. I’m getting uber excited about hitting up some garage sales around these parts this spring…though I have some very specific items I’m looking for. A vintage rake, a wardrobe big enough for all of Mark’s clothes, an old wooden ladder…so if you see any of these things in your own perusing, let me know! It might be time for a ROAD TRIP!!!
