GARAGE SALES AND FALL

This wreath is on my front door. **** WELCOME FALL **** WELCOME FRIENDS ****
Ooops...hey...who put this pictures of my chocolates on this blog....I'm busted. I went to my favorite candy store today and treated myself :) There is a peanut butter chocolate, a toffee piece and then a Raspberry Truffle....ohhhhhh, yessssssss a little bit of heaven on earth :)

Back to some pretty fall leaves. This is for sure, Heaven on Earth. I wonder why the leaves are so pretty, when in fact, they are dying ???



More pretty leaves



Ohhh, yes this nice picture is a Renoir, titled "On the Terrace. It's sofa size and may have to stay here for awhile



Okay, here are today's treasures. Coffee tin, FREE, old folding ruler, FREE, deers, squirrel figurine, bluebirds, amber birds, 2 shakers, couple cigar boxes to alter, white candle holder will be sprayed, fence planter, altogether under $15.00. So, it was a pretty good hunt. Read today's paper for estate sales on Saturday and a couple look pretty good. I am going to try to STAY home tomorrow and work on the cards and putz around the house. Have a great weekend .
Warmly, Deb :) Oh, yes, you probably have noticed misspelled words in other post...
...sorry...fingers faster than my brain and I forget to use the spell check. Spelling isn't my strong point...

You "done good"! LOL! I don't blame you for keeping that picture! I do the same thing - keep something and enjoy it for a while before I sell it!
Hugs,

What a nice haul... I really like those old folding rulers/measuring sticks... such a cute chipmunk! My favorite is the fence planter, though... it's neat! Hope your evening is pleasant and relaxing... God bless...

I'm into squirles this fall so my eyes went right to the ones you have. Very cute!

Hope you get lots done tomorrow.

I've got so much to do before my cruise I may have to stay off the computer tomorrow. YIKES! I feel withdrawls coming on. LOL

oh those chocolates do look heavenly!
So, if you take glycerine and rub on the fall leaves will they stay pretty like that? Just a thought...we really don't have pretty colors here.
And as far as spelling goes...I wouldn't know it if it was wrong...trust me!

I LOVE that folding ruler...I know it is silly, but my Dad had one when I was a kid and we wern't allowed to mess with it. now I know I will start looking closer for those at yard sale. They really do work great since they don't 'flop' when you are alone and measuring.

Have a great day!
