Hello friends! I had the day off so we got up early and went to a few Garage sales. We found a few good ones but most people just had junk.
Our goodies we came home with included this adorable set of angel figurines we found at an estate sale.





I also found this planter and a Lefton figurine.




We lucked into some beautiful vintage linens. These 3 hankies were only 50 cents.


I am always looking for hankies that have images besides flowers. Not that flowers aren't pretty, but I want cute little images like you see on vintage cards. So I was thrilled to find this Humpty Dumpty Hanky!


We found this lovely pink embroidered piece




and these lovely red ones.




A lovely tablecloth






and two kitty pillowcases with lovely crocheted edges.





At the Goodwill I found this pretty figurine of a marching band girl with wings.



We then headed to a flea market where I found this ADORABLE set of salt and pepper shakers! I so want to start a collection!




Can you believe that on my day off from the scrapbook store that I would want to go to Michaels? I really did.
And I found goodies!!! Look at these mushrooms! Pretty red topped ones and little pastel colored ones.



I also got pretty paper and this really neat chandelier stamp.


One of my favorite finds of the day was this Witch Hazel bottle. I saw a magazine article a few years back in a Halloween magazine showing a collection of these bottles as a Halloween decoration and I just loved them. I have been looking for one ever since. I was so happy today when I found this one because the label is so nice.


I wanted you to start your weekend with a chuckle so I hope you enjoy this little comic as much as I did!

Have a wonderful weekend, Lindsey and Twyla

Hello Ladies,
Looks like you had a wonderful shopping day, what beautiful finds!
I have a small collection of Lefton figures... they always have a sweetness about them.
Oh and your salt and pepper shakers are too cute. It's always fun to happen upon something different and decide to start a new collection. Have fun!
