Yard Sale.....Scottsdale Style

My car has been in the shop this week.  Although car problems are never fun it has forced me to be "home" more!  It has been raining more than usual for Arizona, and has felt cozy.  I had plans yesterday to organize all day while my kids were at school and I had no choice to go anywhere without transportation.  However, when my friend Debbie called to inform of a designer yard sale in Scottsdale I immediately dropped all responsibility and motivation to stay home and organize.  I headed out the door to the sale practically in pj's.   

It was interior decorator Jamie Rose who is based out of Scottsdale.  She had beautiful fabrics, lamps, rugs and all for fractions of retail cost.  It was truly a yard sale of great proportions.  I walked away with this 9x6 kilim rug.....

The picture above from my iphone doesn't do it justice.  I will have to post more at a later date.  It goes perfectly in my piano/sun room.  Similar rugs are found on Furbish Studio for $900.  I paid 10 percent of its retail cost.  I love a good deal, a great treasure, and always a treasure hunt.
