More garage sale finds

I had even more garage sale finds today from my trip out this morning that I just had to share.




I found these cool old pipe valve thingies (yep, that's the technical term). I picked up three of them for $1 and hope to use them to make a really cool towel hook for the kids bathroom. I'm going to need hubby's help though, not sure how to mount them.
I got four of these black buckets for 50 cents and think they would be really cool with some numbers on them. I did a little experiment and found that chalk works on these so I could use that too. Aren't they cool?

And my favorite find of the day, this old beaten up croquet set. Once I brought it home, the kids played with the set for nearly an hour (totally worth the 50cents)! I actually bought it to take the balls out and use to decorate in a little bowl or something.

See, aren't they fun finds? Don't you think that's worth two posts?! I do!

Hello,

I came by way of Debbie's party. Great finds. I love the great croquet set. I keep hoping to find one when I am thrifting. Using the valves for towels hooks is pretty clever.
