Weekend Finds

These flowers are from the local Farmer's market and only 5.00 a bunch. They are so pretty.We also bought carrots and baby cukes...they taste wonderful!

I made the "Fall" picture with a cute blackbird sticker, stamp, fall leaves and scrapbook paper. I also made a similar one for my Fall Swap partner, Fran who has received hers.
Love these vintage suit cases. Only $5.00 each...they will sure hold LOTS of STUFF!!! Isn't the little doggie pin cushion sweet and the older Trick & Treat bags. These finds are from 2 estate sales that we went to. The Mother Goose book has awesome pictures in it. I should have taken photos and showed you. Just wonderful graphics.



20 hankies and this Christmas linen...I washed and ironed them tonight. I went for hankies that had Valentine and Christmas designs on them and I also found a state one that is Minnesota and of course a few pretty flower ones.


More fun little items for the "shops"...




Aren't these old store signs awesome...I bought 4 and am keeping one. I sprayed the little one with silver and it still looks a little "shabby"..





Oops...I bought a few magazines. YES....I am also a Magazine junkie....it is a weakness that I have. I can hardly wait for the Christmas ones to appear on the shelf. I just love all the ideas that they offer and yummy recipes that they share. I SO want to Bake!!! I keep them for a few years . So many ideas to remember.
Hubby's birthday is Saturday...the HQ sale starts the 24Th...so I will be pricing items this week and going to the shop to set up my space. I have lots of "fall" things to sell. It will be fun to decorate my space the next few months.
Thank You, PEARL...she "tweaked" my fall banner. She has the touch and is such a sweet heart!!!
That's all for now...take care!
Warmly,
Deb :)

$5.00 each for those suitcases?! I saw similar suitcases at an estate sale down here (southern Louisiana/Mississippi) and they were $50 AND in much worse condition. I noticed that your banner had been tweaked and it's just cuter than ever!!!

Those suitcases are just perfect! I'm so happy you found them. All your finds are the best. We are magazine fanatics too. Love them this time of year. Wish they were all still $1.95 :( Have a wonderful day! Twyla

I am a magazine junkie too. I try to keep it in check, but the most difficult time for me to do that is Christmas!! So soon I'll probably have a stack'o'magazines like that!
