Florida Finds & Weekend Finds

Sun setting in Florida....
These are my Florida finds. The pretty table cloth and blue puppy are from Carol's booth... :)
The other's from her shop and another one up by St. Augustine. I only purchased "smalls" so that they would fit in the suitcase. The door knocker isn't old, just a repo. Chintz dish was a good price. Just HAD to get the April birthday angel because that's my month. Isn't the bunny sweet!
The blue bunny is from Hobby Lobby! That store is awesome! There aren't any here in MN as far as I know. I bought a few more things there, but they may go to swap partner's or ???
The postcards are from BFF. Wasn't that very sweet of her to give me her collection!





Saw LOTS of these guys at the beach.


I won these 2 original artwork pieces from Michelle Palmer. Aren't these Darling!!! You can see more at her blog: http://michellepalmerart.blogspot.com She also sells them. THANK YOU, Michelle! After I find the right frames they are going in the sun room until my craft room is ready.




These finds are from yesterday. The little picks are sweet. We went to 3 estate sales. I DO Love my Estate Sales :)



More finds....




More finds...
After a vacation, there is the laundry and other fun stuff to do to get back into your regular routine and that's what I've been doing. Next week is the sale at HQ..and I need to get busy with pricing goodies...yikes, where does the time go in the day?!!
That's it for today...have a Great Week and "DO" something FUN.
Warmly,
deb

You found some lovely items!! I think there is still a Hobby Lobby down in Rochester. I used to go there when visiting family. Have fun with the laundry!

Looks like some great finds from Florida and the weekend. I keep hearing great things about Hobby Lobby, but we don't have those here either. Michelle's art is nice and I am off to check out her blog.

Hi Deb!!!
I am WAY SO JEALOUS that you got to visit one of my favorite places in Florida! My sis lives in Jacksonville and we have gotten to St Augustine a couple of time to shop that wonderful *back* street they have! I guess I'll live my desire to be south through your wonderful pix! Hope you had a grand time!

Hugs and Love,
Lorena

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Such cute finds! Love the postcards also!

~~Carol~~ said...

I think if I'm ever in the situation where I have to make a choice between bringing my clothes back home from a trip, or some new treasures, I'd leave all of my clothes behind! You sure found lots of goodies on your trip. I'm an April baby too. Turning the big 5-0 on the 5th!

Such great little finds, especially those picks. I've never seen those before. It's always a challenge to limit it to things that fit in a suitcase although Plan B (shipping a box home) is always in the back of my mind. :-)

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

Beautiful stuff!!!!.....m....

Deanna said...

I'm having a swoonfest just looking at all of your goodies!

I was lucky enough to find four sets of those cute little mercury balls twisted together on wire being used for shelf decoration at Goodwill. I scooped them up and asked the clerk "how much?" I got the set of four for sixty cents!

Deanna :D

Queenie said...

You do find the best stuff girl...love that bunny, the postcards and the other estate sale stuff...those paper fruit picks are so neat...I've never seen anything like those :)
Thanks for sharing the beautiful sunset too :)
Not to worry, you'll get caught up on the household chores after coming back from vacation...it does always seem like they are twice as hard after coming back from a vacation though....don't it?!
Hope you have a grea week sweetie...
Big hugs,
Queenie

Joy said...

You find the cutest things and yes I am having so much fun holding Lily and rocking her. Congrats on your win!

Mary Ellen said...

You always find such great things in your shopping adventures!!!

Betsy said...

Oooh! My eyes are all over the place scanning your treasures. It's hard having to limit yourself to the smalls, but you really found some great things. You'll be busy getting all of it priced. Congratulations on the artwork-so cute. We don't have a Hobby Lobby out here either, but have heard great things.

Hi Deb
I bet you had a great time in Florida. I hear the weather there has been very nice this winter. You found lots of lovely pieces...it is so hard to resist looking isn't it. I haave sometimes bought things that I just had such a problem getting home because of their size but I was determined.

congratulations on winning a great giveaway...so pretty.

Hope you are having a good week so far.
*hugs*
Judi

Sounds like Florida was a great time and YUMMY FOOD... what wonderful treasures you found at the estate sales. !!!!

Brenda ~ Shabby Cats and Roses said...

You found some terrific things! I can't wait for spring and warmer weather to get here in Michigan so I can start hitting the garage sales to find lots of treasures!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

These are all so lovely, especially like the box of things marked $3, you always manage to find the nicest things. I wish we had more estate sales around here. Thank you for coming by and have a nice weekend.
