Honestly, I Have to Stop Doing This...

I've been bad. I promised myself that I would NOT buy anything else until I cleaned my garage and got rid of all the stuff that's spilling over onto the driveway. So, on my way back from dropping off my son at a friend's house, what did I do? I went to not one, but two community yard sales...and I bought things! I mean, I couldn't pass these things up for the price...what's wrong with me? OKay. I spent a total of 30 minutes and only $7...can you blame me? Just look what I got!! 

*This gorgeous little end table...an antique in perfect condition (never mind the color and knobs...I will change that).

*This cool bowl that I've already started to paint.
* Fun wooden candlesticks...oh the possibilities! 
*Lots of buttons (including vintage mother of pearl)
*A fun little box that I will make even funner (I know it's not a word, but it will be fun...er). 


So, tell, me how can I pass these things up? Is it MY fault that my car  is attracted to yard sales?
