A Few Finds

Well, I seemed to do a lot of driving today, stopping at quite a few sales.

I ended up buying from only one sale today but I had a lot of fun.

Yesterday, my #1 bought me a GPS so now I won't have to use his.

I have my very own!

For those of you that own one, don't you just love them?

It makes me feel like I can find anything.

My purse is getting heavier as by the time I have my cell phone, my camera (which is a must) and now a GPS, that inexpensive purse became quite heavy and expensive.

Here are a few of the things I purchased the past couple of days.

Do you know what these are?

Old perm rods!

I've never seen them made out of wood.

They were just to interesting to pass up.

The cute poodle hair pin in the first picture was also found with the perm rods.

A few other little things I bought.

I was able to pick up a few old metal locker type cabinets too.

Fortunately, there was a place to put them in my space at Monticello so I didn't have to store them at home.


Hope you are having a wonderful evening!

Ok! That settle it ... just when I am trying NOT to go to AS MANY sales .... you show me just why I MUST! Thanks for sharing your fun finds! Also need to get my tush up to Monticello. Haven't been there in a bit, and that day Martha and I were unloading her spring space and I was sweeping up Joy's corner. There's something soothing about sweeping .... but not as much fun as shopping for treasures!

I love your decorations! You are lucky to have found those swags on sale! I bought one last year because they were full price and spendy! Now I wish that I had gotten more because I couldn't find them this year! Your home looks so cute as usual! I hope that you have a wonderful 4th with your family!

Hugs, Sharon
