So what can you get for $20?

Hello there! I've been crazy busy at work and thus sleeping a lot at home so I'm behind in posting. I need a vacation!

Anyway, we had a great time at the rummage sale on Saturday! Catherine was a darling hostess to both Katie and I and we even got to meet Monica! Such fun.

So, what CAN you get for $20? Here is my fabulous haul:



That would be two sea shell baking pans, 3 lotus bowls, 2 tins, a stainless steel shaker and an orange KitchenAid silicone cake mold. But wait . . . there's more . . .



A fabulous red tin tray, a ceramic rooster, a package of cocktail napkins, 5 vintage hankies, a pink table cloth, two pairs of knitting needles, vintage cupcake picks (Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's day) and a sweet old Hershey's mug. And I must show you the bottom of that darling rooster:



Thank you, Esther! He has a good home now, don't you worry. And I promise to throw him a grand old party on his 50th birthday in a few years. ;)

And still . . . there is more . . . .



Two new Waverly valances, a chair cushion and a place mat all in "Sweet Violets." I know what colors I'll be decorating my craft room in next year!



A set of 4 tin plates in a tin from Restoration Hardware (this is a favorite find!) and some gorgeous holiday ribbon.

And did I save the best for last? You bet!



I found the ornaments spread all over the place and most are Shiny Brite. I later found the empty box under the table and snatched it! I felt so lucky finding these. I really love the red ones with the gold crowns. They are my sure favorite with the bells coming in a close second. And how about that dove in the bottom middle? He's a favorite, too.

So thank you again Catherine for taking us! I had a great time and can't wait until next year. I'll share some of the finds from the thrifts we visited that day tomorrow.

Those red tin plates are darling, and I love the ornaments of course. :) The crown ones are really neat! I've never seen any like those before. I think those and the bells are my favorites too. :) Great finds!

Well, I didn't exactly take you as once again you did all the driving! I forgot to tell you I had picked up Esther's rooster and put it back. I'm glad he went to a good home. Or should we pretend he's one of those rare girl roosters and name him Esther? I so want to be in on the party for him in 2009! Can you imagine the chickeny goodness!
