Candle, candle holder, paper goodies to make cards with...Promise postcard..and the sand dollar pumpkin card...
I joined Cindy from http://rick-rackandgingham.blogspot.com Fall Swap and the photo's above are ALL the treasures she sent me! WOW...and don't you think those clothes pins are the sweetest! THANK YOU, CINDY!!! I love my swap treasures!


Today we went to a couple of estate sales and these are my finds...

and the little Pixie had the tag with it and it's story...too cute! He is for sale at 10.00 plus shipping if interested! He is darling!!!
The garage sale went well and I dropped off a LOAD of things that didn't sell at the thrift store...
Got my hair cut and AGAIN, hubby says "too short" and you can see it on my sidebar, after I finish this post... OH WELL!!!
Off to price things for the HQ sale and get the porch cleaned out so I can start staining the 3 interior doors and trim before the "girlfriend" weekend in October. LOTS to do...
Hope your weekend is going GREAT!!! The leaves are turning color around here...pretty and the night air is cool and crisp!
Warmly,
deb :)

I'm sorry but I have to disagree with your husband. I noticed the new picture right away, and I think you look fantastic and that cut really suits you!
I love all of your finds, especially that mirror and the pink tablecloth. Once again you've outdone yourself!

Those are great gifts, I like them all, I don't know how you manage to find such treasures, maybe I better keep my eyes open better. I also like your hair cut. Have a nice week.
