Sharing some of my Stuff!

Good Evening Blogger friends!!
This has been a long week for me. I have been fighting bronchitis and been on breathing treatments three times a day. I still had to work all week. Today was a night mare at work. But tomorrow is Friday! One more day and then the weekend!!
The give away ends tomorrow. I will announce the winner either late Friday night or early Saturday. So look for my post! Good luck to all who entered.!!

I thought I would share some of my stuff. I have found this stuff in many different places, yard sales, Goodwill, my own projects and a gift from my son!! Hope you enjoy looking at it all.

I could not believe it when I saw these two red boxes with red gingham tops at a yard sale last week. They were each a dollar. I buy these boxes anytime I see them because I store alot of my fabric and other craft supplies in them.

I tried my hand at mod podging! This rather large heart had the old style geese design!! I decided to give it an update. I have been seeing music sheets all over blogland in crafting. So I thought I would give it a whirl. I kinda like it. Its hanging in the toilet area of my master bathroom. I told my husband he could make sweet music!! LOL

These napkins were brand new in the package. When I found them I thought they were paper or plastic. I paid 50 cents for them. When I unwrapped them when I got home I found they are linens! They match my kitchen so perfectly!! There are 6 of these.

I bought this little apron at Ross's. I thought I could use it as a pattern to make more aprons that I can sell at the Flea Market or maybe even on line.

The two pillows below are yard sale finds. Each were a dollar! These came from an immaculate home. I don't like to buy pillows from just any yard sale. I also took added precautions. My new washer and dryer that we bought for this house has a steamer/sanitizer. So the first thing I did was run both pillows on the full cycle to clean and sanitize them!

My son made me this little cradle in shop class years ago!! He was in high school. He is 39 years old now! The bunnie is a 25 cent yard sale find! I made the little white pillow with the buttons that is sitting beside bunny.

This small afghan is a Goodwill Find! The colors match my house perfectly.

When I went to my Social Work conference about a month ago. I ate at the Cracker Barr ell. Of course you always have to shop in the general store! So I found this cute little oval bunnie plate. Its the only Easter decoration I have inside the house. This and the wreath on the door will be all I will be doing for Easter.

  12. Susan, these are really some great "finds". What a pleasant surprise to find the napkins were linen! I don't decorate a lot for easter, either. The typical decorations don't really seem appropriate to me anyway. But that really is a beautiful plate you found at Cracker Barrel.

  13. Hi Susan,
    Oh what great treasures you found. I tell ya, you know where the best sales are.
    I love the pillows and the darling Cracker Barrel plate too.
    Love your heart redesign and the cute part about making music!!LOL

    Hugs and Blessings, Celestina Marie
