Recent Finds & Halloween Swap & Cards


 Hubby and I went to 2 estate sales today! Above is what I picked up from one of the sales. The little Wade has it's own box with the rabbit. Cute!
 The white Roseville vase and linen I bought at "The Gathering of Friends" on Thursday. Didn't find much there and it seemed like there wasn't much to buy. Maybe I'm just getting more "select" in my purchases. The chnitz dish was from an antique shop next to Auntie M's and it was half off... I'm BAD!!
 I did the Halloween Swap that Heidi had and my partner was Val. Val doesn't have a blog. She made the cute hat and sent along MANY Halloween treasures as you can see above and below. THANK YOU, Val! It was a Great Swap! And I forgot to take photos of what I made and sent her...oops..


I made a few Halloween cards this week. I have some from last year so I didn't need to make that many. You never know who will get a card in the mail!

The leaves are at peek here in Minnesota. Very pretty. It's also very COLD! I had to turn the furnace on...

Next week is going to be busy with some FUN stuff! Tuesday is a craft day with "J". Wednesday I'm meeting another blogger, Sandy from 521 Lake Street and her cousin. We are meeting up with Tammy, from Tammy's In Love. Fun Day shopping!

Thank you for being my blogging Friends! Have a Blessed Sunday.
Warmly,
deb

Hi Deb! Looks like you found some goodies and received some fantastic swap goods. Your Halloween cards are fantastic. I pretty much have only participated in the Peimitive swaps but if you would ever like to exchange holiday cards, I would enjoy that very much. I hope you are doing well.

Great finds, Deb! Love that little bunny {I have a thing for bunnies}. Love the hat you got in your swap and your cards are all so nice. I especially love the owl one ~ very cute! It was chilly here yesterday, too, but I think it will get warmer again in a few days. I took a nice walk yesterday and it was wonderful to be out in this weather.

Debby said...

What sweet finds and sweet gifts. Love your witches hat.
I went to put out my tall witch without a hat. I have been tempted just to throw her out for a couple of years because she looked worn out. then like a light bulb decided to put my witches hat that I got in the swap on her. That was a long sentence, Anywhoooo she looks all freshened up now. Will have to post her soon. Have alot of fun this week.

Sounds like you are having some fun! The spoon rest you found is identical to the one on my stove...it was on my husband's mother's stove for years!

I love the hat..there is a place called Rainbow gardens here and they have these elaborate witch hats...I want to make one, but it is a we will see kind of things. I am really enjoying the thrift store thing...I had never really done it before.
