Last Week-Ends Finds!

This week has been busy as I have been teaching 1st grade all week.
Normally, I aide the teacher, but she is on vacation so I'm getting the lesson plans together and grading papers etc...

It's actually been a lot of fun, just very busy.

So, before the week totally gets away, I wanted to show you a few things I was able to pick up this past week-end.

I found quite a few millinery flowers for $1.00 a piece.

I always enjoy finding those.

Tri-fold mirrors, love those too!

Found two of them.

At one of the sales I went to, I ventured out into the garage.
Nothing was priced.

You know, one of those dark rundown garages where if you put your hand under a bench, if it's warm and fuzzy, RUN!!!

I risked it!

Here I found these great old wood totes, I love those things!

My #1 found this old lantern.

He wasn't sure what I would think about it, but for $1.50 he thought he'd take a chance.

Perfect for Fall!

Here is a tiny boxing glove.
I think it was probably a salesman sample.

And lastly, old shoes and knobs.

These knobs are quite small, they will come in handy on tiny cabinets.

I hope your week is going well!

Thank you for stopping by.
