We have found lots of new goodies over the last couple of weeks to share with you.

This is an adorable little set of Animal Rummy cards. There adorable and it looks like all the cards are still there!

Girl figurines always make me smile. They have charm and personality!

This is my newest Gurley candle. After learning about them from Barbara of Oodles and oodles I started collecting them when I come across them at flea market's.

I bought Mom this cute train planter for her planter collection.

Nothing cuter than a kitty conductor!

A sweet vintage pattern. I will probably make a set of tags with these little girls!

I have a big weakness! Vintage cards! I just can't resist them!

I love vintage children's books. They are also one of me bigger weaknesses. My favorite vintage books are the Rand McNally Elf books. They are filled with the cutest pictures! I was lucky enough to have found 6 of them over the last couple of weekends.

I found this autograph book at Claire's. I just happened to be at the mall (which is very rare) with a friend who likes to buy earrings there and as I was looking around which was interesting since I had not been in one for a long time! It was hard to look around and see The Jonas Brothers stuff hanging on the wall because when I used to go to Claire's they had the Backstreet boys stuff. It made me feel old!

I did find a huge collection of Hello Kitty Mushroom stuff!

I love Hello Kitty and Mom loves mushrooms so I knew we would both enjoy this cuteness!

Although this pillowcase has several stains I love the adorable kitties all over it.

This is a place card. On the back it has couples number and table number sections. I would like to have seen the party that these were used for!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and are ready to start another week!

That pattern looks just like the dresses my mother and grandmother used to make for me. How fun.

I've been hearing lots of talk about Barbie's 50th birthday..they say it's the new 40.
