Yard Sale Score!

Good Tuesday Morning!  It is bright, sunny and unseasonably warm in SW Virginia today and I am loving it!  Did you know that last Thursday it snowed a couple of inches here then the very next day got up to 70 degrees??  Crazy!  Snow boots to Swim suits in less than 24 hours!

Saturday morning I needed to go to the dreaded W*almArt to get a few things and passed a gigantic yard sale on the way, so of course I stopped.  It was being run as a fund raiser for the Alzheimer's Assoc.  I don't know if I have told you my mother in law has Alzheimer's.  It is such a cruel disease.  I would not wish this on my greatest enemy.

I am glad I stopped, because I found so much stuff that I just couldn't live without!  
A huge bag of embroidery thread, all brand new.

These 1950's cake toppers, they're not blurry in real life!

A huge bag of plastic baby cake decorating doo dads

A huge bag of Christmas cupcake pics.

A beautiful amber glass cake plate, a flow blue pitcher and the cutest little Peanuts tin,  Do you glimpse that Kiss item in the back??? It's a Kiss Christmas ornament!  And that little change purse is just like one I had when I was a little girl and kept my milk and ice cream money in for school.

Like I needed more cookbooks!

yeah, I bought 3 more...

My favorite find!!  Aren't these sooo pretty!  From Woolworth's, still has the price on the box!

More fun ornaments..

I already have one of these, I have no idea why I need another!

and a box full of Christmas doo dads to use in my crafting!

As you can see, I scored!!!!  For the whole lot she wanted $5.00...I gave her 20.00... it's for a very worthy cause! 

Hope everyone has a fantastic day!!!

Happy Day After Easter!

Yesterday was too much of a whirlwind to even jump in here once to wish you Happy Easter!

It started out as a cool, rainy day but by afternoon had warmed up nicely and was mostly sunny.

All last week I meant to show y'all the Easter Parade going on in my dining room and never got around to it, so here it is now!  All my vintage chickies and roosters strutting their stuff across the top of my buffet!
Of course Mr. Rooster will lead the way.
Here was my favorite Easter creation from yesterday's lunch!  Peeps and fruit kabobs!
See my little lamb planter that they are in?  Ain't it darlin'.  A Goodwill find.

And look what the Easter Bunny brought me!  A new hoe and shovel!  I am so grateful, my old ones had wooden handles that were so old they were leaving splinters in my hands every time I used them.

Yngwie and I ready for church.  I just love seeing my son all dressed up!

Lunch time!  I had eight people for lunch and we had sooooo much food!  My niece is so funny.  She insists that I always put the macaroni salad in the blue bowl.

My sister, my Dad and me!  I am so blessed to still have my Dad around!

Hope everyone had a Happy Easter!
