A Winner and Some Fun Thrifted Finds

Da, da da da (suppose to sound like trumpets)! The winner of my 100th post "Hooray for Spring!" giveaway is #14, Fitty's Pink Cottage! Congratulations! Just need your name and mailing address and I will ship out your prizes.

Hey, that was fun! I want to thank everyone who left a comment. I wish I could send out prizes to everyone. You all are so sweet and I loved reading your kinds words.

On Thursday I went over to Joy's house to help her get ready for the sale she is having today. We got a lot done. I didn't get any preview pics, but I did get a picture of our "we worked really hard and deserve this" snack.

They were so yummy! It had been a really long time since either of us had one of these. Wish I had another one right now.

Here's something I forgot to show you. I bought this adorable little crusty pink bird cage from Cindy. Isn't it sweet? I plan on using this for a prop for ebay pictures when I finally get around to taking some ebay pictures.













As I mentioned in my last post, yesterday I went thrifting and out to lunch with my lunch lady friend, Debbie. We had so much fun and we even found an estate sale where I found several cool item for really cheap. Click on the picture for a better view.












I also found these two adorable boxes and some vintage bling.














This box was my favorite find of the day. I found it in the carport of the estate sale. Not sure if it is a keeper or if I'll sell it. It needs a little tlc, but don't you just love the little rose medalion?











This box I found at the Salvation Army boutique store. I found the adorable bow ties there too and the vintage hat with the white flowers which I have already plucked off.










Debbie was kind enough to give me a box of test tubes. I have been wanting some for awhile. I have some ideas in mind for them, but look how perfect they are in this little metal rack I got for a dollar at Value Village.

Today Isabel, my daughter and her friend and I are headed over to the 3 Friends sales. Should be lots of fun, but after that I really need to hunker down and get busy working on some projects. I have been having entirely too much fun lately.

Hope you all have an awesome Saturday! Do something fun if you can.
