Small project, Yard Sale Haul, and Family dollar finds.

Good Afternoon, my friends! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday. I got up early this morning and went to the yard sales! I found a lot of stuff, nothing special!
I thought I would share my yard sale finds, a small project and dollar tree and Family dollar finds!! I had not posted anything new all week. So I thought I needed to share something with my friends!!
My creative juices have quit flowing. I have tried and tried to get in the mood to sew or craft and everything I touch something goes wrong and I get frustrated!
I think my body is tired and telling me take a break for awhile. Because the last thing I tried to sew , I started crying because I messed it up so badly.
It has been a touch few weeks for me physically and emotionally. But I will get through all this and soon feel like my old self again!!
I hope everyone enjoys my show and tell!

Small project!

I found this little box at the dollar tree! Of course I alter any box I see or have!

Inside of box!

Fall oven mitts and two place mats! These were 2:00. There are just two of us, so these work out perfectly for us.

Little lace box! 25 cents!! Of course I will have to alter it a little!

Red Heart Bowl. Originally from Ross! I paid 75 cents at a yard sale!

  1. You did find some great deals this week. I love the placemats and those pumpkins from the dollar store. I got some last year and love them!!

  2. times, it is a good idea to take a break..and just do next to nothing...but maybe read and relax.

    My husband starts his first round of radiation for prostate cancer on Tues...our lives will change now...for a good he will be at this for five days a week... for 8 weeks.
    It is in the early we are confident that he will be fine...when all is said and done.,...IF they do the procedure many medical errors anymore...and THAT is something I worry about too.

    Love, Rose

  3. Wow, you must have had a lot of fun finding all these treasures. I couldn't pick a favorite. :)

  6. Hi Susan!
    I always love hearing from you and checking out all your latest finds!

    I'm sorry to hear that you've been having a tough couple of weeks. I hope it gets better for you very quickly.

    I really loved seeing your white shabby chic room! Everything is sooo pretty! And I just LOVE that style!

    I also thought some beautiful ribbon would look great woven through that lacy basket? It would be a perfect addition to your shabby chic room.. *winks*....That's all the inspiration I have in ME my friend...So don't you feel badly about taking a break from being inspired. Inspiration strikes when you least expect it to. Vanna
