Yep! That's me!
Take me to garage sales.. thrift stores or..even to Costco for groceries..where I can taste all sorts of samples...I'm fine.
As I have said...SATURDAY is such a fun day for us. Early morning and my Star Bucks mug filled with hot coffee...and off we go. We usually head for neighborhoods nearby where we love to look at the homes as well as seeing what neat things we can find.
Our first stop and I found these. All three for $3.00! I have seen them in stores and I loved them but not the price. They probably can be seen at one of the discount stores...but here they were for just the right price!
Now I am off to Michaels for some pretty candles...
Can you see the tiny bee's and butterflies" on them? CUTE!
As you may already know...I have a tiny year old granddaughter, Emily, that has already shown a big interest in books...so I was on the lookout for new or nearly new books...and again..I found them!! 25 cents each! We are building her a little library. Never too early to start.
Yes! I also came across this lovely RED mug! Exactly the color of my Kitchen Aid Coffee maker! Yep..exactly!! 10 cents!!
Yes, yes, I did the "happy dance" and got looked at strangely!! Who cares! I carry it around with me now...LOVE THAT MUG!! Just feels right...you know? :)
It says "WAECHTERSBACH GERMANY" on the bottom.. which meant nothing to me...it's just a beautiful deep red color...
Years ago...I bought a slow cooker.
I learned that there is a difference between a slow cooker...and a crock pot! Yep. I used mine...and wore it out finally and have been looking for another ever since..but they don't make them like that any more.
On Saturday...there it was! This time with a glass lid..which means I can put it on the stove with the lid on. My old one had a plastic lid. I was overjoyed. Got it for $1.00. Looks like NEW inside and out! Cord even lookd new and not a scratch inside! (WORKS like a charm! )
Another HAPPY DANCE? You bet!!! (The sweet woman told me she had gotten a crock pot and didn't use the slow cooker and had only used it once or twice! OK! Did I tell her..Naw...why confuse her!
Sometimes, on the way home... folks are repacking, closing up...and you pull to the curb...thinking all the good stuff will be gone..but what the heck..and there it is. Your find of the day! This was only $2.00 and I love it. It is going in my Shabby Chic living room...PERFECT just under the old floor lamp! See?
We braked for one last garage sale sign..and my sweetie was suddenly in his GLORY!
LOOK..what he found! He was in 7th heaven! (why..I have no idea! ..oh well....)
