Here are few of my favorite things...



Friends I have missed you all. I have just gotten off from working 3 back to back 12 hour shifts at the hospital. But I did find some time to tresure hunt today! My community was holding a hugh garage sale to raise money for their Harvest Festival coming in October. My bestfriend and I were more than happy to contribute...She found a couple of wonderful deals as I was too. When I came up on them...I almost passed out. This woman wanted 15 dollars for the whole set...can you believe the luck! I have priced similar types of vessels at a much higher price and shucks you could have paid that much for just the big tray. And the best part they are brand spanken new. It was lovely to set eyes on that set!

Here is a closer look at the larger tray and the canisters,mugs,spoon rest. I will pack these way until next summer. But this was one deal I could not pass up. Except the canisters which I think I will use in my craft room. I love they way they make me feel....so cheery!





Wait! That's not all ladies! I have found more. On one of my working days I needed to go to my local grocery store to pick up a prescription. When I came across these lovely autumn bowls! I still am shaking my head at this one...who would have thunk that they would have dishes in a grocery store. Well the prices ranged from 3.99 to 7.99 depending on the size of the bowl. But still a baragin and just looks wonderful! I can see all types of things in the bowls...



I promise to post more photos tomorrow...of the other finds I found! Again, it feels wonderful to be back in the world of the living. I have missed you all like crazy! I received a wonderful email from Heather of the Speakled Egg blog. Keep me posted of the Halloween Hat Swap I am in. This will be my first swap from a blog! And one that is crafted. I am truly excited and honored that I am being able to play! It will prove great fun and giggles! Leave lots of comments friends...I have missed you! Hugs to each of you!
