Oops....wrong season! I found this brand new Flexible Flyer sled for 9.00.
Another large pair of brass candlesticks which will be polished and nothing more. I started out buying lots of old wooden candlesticks and painting many of them. Thankfully, I controlled myself and left some of them alone. Now I am liking the idea of mixing the wooden candlesticks with the brass for Fall and Thanksgiving arrangements. The tendency to throw a a coat of paint on things for a quick fix is appealing but hard to reverse. I find that many times when I let things sit for a while and I study them, I end up doing something quite different than I initially imagined. They can always be painted later.
Another little creche for 3.95. It has all of it's pieces and they are in perfect shape. This would be such a sweet Christmas present for a young child along with a Christmas book about the nativity. When I was small I was enthralled with our family nativity. This would make such a nice unexpected present.
Again, I was sure I would spray paint this the moment I got home from shopping. But after looking at it for a while, I thought it had perfect colors for fall. I might replace the Fleu de Lis though.
This should be fun. I am not sure yet exactly what I will do with this but I am quite sure it will have something to do with Halloween. All this needs is a battery and a little work and I should have a fun decoration for 9.00.
I keep finding these everywhere and they are always 99 cents a branch. I think with some copper paint and a bit of tweaking these can be used outside on garden shelves.
Bad art.......great frame!!!!! 1.99
I paid a bit more for this frame than usual but it is quite large.
I love finding these bags at thrift stores. You have to look hard but they are usually really good bargains. These were marked 3.95 but were half off.
Remove the prints and you have two very nice, cheap frames.
Once painted this old vanity tray will do a great job of reflecting a candelabra sitting on top of it. 1.25
Nostalgia! I bought it for that reason alone. 3.95 (I have absolutely NO intentions of using this)
Remember those three silver candlesticks I found the other day? This one blends perfectly with them. 1.99
Two pieces of Wallace silver. Both cost 99 cents. I am all for making tarnished silver work as a Halloween decoration.
I found this cute little butter stamp for a dollar.
It has what appears to be a crane on the stamp.
Three more of these old glass candle toppers for 95 cents each. These make a simple candlestick look so elegant.
Well, maybe I will polish the silver a bit. It looks so much better.
This silver plated tray will make another nice chalkboard. 1.99
Teddy update # 10, 999...or it just seems that way. Ugh!! Last night I managed to get the new antibiotics into her. Within hours she was sicker than a dog....you know what I mean. We are still waiting for the results of the blood work. I felt so bad for her this morning that I put her in the car and drove out to the country and bought some glorious mums and lots of wonderful pumpkins. I don't know if it made her feel better but it made me feel great!!!!
WHAT DAY IS IT ASKED POOH
