I admit to longing for those lovely Fall colors...and I admit Fall is my favorite time of year and the saddest time of year for me...still it is when I come alive.
While I am out going to garage sales, I am alway looking, searching, for Fall and Halloween items. I just can't help it. I haven't been posting those things...but..I am this time. Ready? :) Just one, ok?
I fell in love with this VERY heavy black candle holder..(the candle is mine and my favorite shade of orange. Price? $3.00.
These two tiny little pitchers with tiny succulents in them... $3.00.
Ok..I don't need any more of these...but I just can't resist Rhonda's creations. She is a delightful lady. Her Etsy site is Rhonda's Rose Cottage Designs.
I bought this delightful little chocolate cake. So sweet.
If you decide to shop with her...do watch the sizes..as the photo's can be misleading when taken up close. She states the sizes of each...so measure. :)
Now this little cake I did not buy...remind me to tell you that story sometime.
This cake is my very favorite one.
Each time I bought something from Rhonda...she sent a little gift..so I have this collection of cupcakes. I bought a couple and the tiny ones were her precious little gifts. Nice huh? :)
And this...well..this was bought years ago. It smelled delightful and made you hungry and for a long time it was the only faux goodie I had..
Then I bought this one...I guess I went nuts over that dark chocolate...again..I have no idea where I bought it as it is OLD!
And here is where I keep my favorite little faux cake...all those tiny roses are handmade...and of course my most prized garage sale find. MY SILVERWARE! International sterling silver that I found at a garage sale for just $10.00!! The pattern is "Prelude."
It was a complete set with tiny butter knives with each place setting, and...four lovely sterling serving spoons and many various other silver plated flatware. ALL for $10.00 ...yeah...you are right! I STILL cannot believe my luck!
Just one of my milk glass compotes by Westmoreland. An Ebay find. I love real looking faux fruit.
Favorite apples in another Westmoreland compote. The first one of these I found on Ebay arrived broken to a million pieces. I had to find another...it took time..but..I found one finally.
Most of you probably know Rebecca at A Gathering Of Thoughts? Well...I had to laugh the other day when she featured her lovely home...and...showed her OLD and OUTDATED family room...and guess what! Mine is just like hers USED to be! I laughed, and laughed...but..outdated or not...I am not going to do anything else...this room is gonna stay exacty as it is...(almost.) I have already painted it and put in new carpeting of a lovely moss green..."Clover" by Grand Tehton to be exact. So...I will just go and look at Rebecca's when I need a beautiful new look. Ok, Rebecca? :)
Love and hugs,
