First off, I have to say, I can't believe people let go of some things, but we all have our reasons for hanging onto and letting go of things. With that said, I found this....
Isn't this nice? If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you will see that someone put a lot of time and effort into making this and then got rid of it. I paid $1.50 for the crewel work and 50 cents for the salesman sample of green material underneath of the bunny. I think there is enough of the green material to make a backing and piping for a little pillow out of both. And I have just the place for it when Easter rolls around.
My next lucky find was this cute little African Violet planter. Only I think I am going to use it in my kitchen to grow mint for my Mojitos. :-) Or maybe African Violets. I dunno, I'll have to see if the mint survives. Last year I planted it in a pot outside and it spread everywhere. My husband wasn't too thrilled with that. But he did enjoy the Mojitos I made with the home grown mint.
I saved the best for last. These cute little pumpkin Tureens are from Crate and Barrel. They were made in Portugal and I purchased both for $1.00 each. I think they will look real cute on my Fall dinner table or in my hutch. Haven't decided yet.
I had a lovely day today. First with a relaxing massage, then finding these cute items for the home, and then meeting my husband for lunch. And he bought this time. Woo hoo! What more can a girl ask for!~Ames
