Weekend Finds

The beautiful weather we had over the weekend. Bought everyone out. The markets were packed. The first one I hit. Found this great wicker table, sled and package of red Christmas balls. He wanted $10 for the table, got it for $5. I started talking to him after he told me the price. Got to talking, then offered $5, he said why not. Yeah! The sled, wooden with wrought iron. Has to be sanded down and painted, scored that for $2 and the box of bulbs, got for a buck.

The second market this weekend. Got myself a 3qt crock for $3. Great shape and the insert comes out. Already have a couple of the larger crocks. This one will be perfect for a side dish or just something smaller I want to cook. Got another sled. I don't know what it is, have a thing for sleds lately. It was only $2 and the ornament 50 cents. The candle snuffer was a $1.00. The tray, was a gift from my girlfriend. Something someone gave her and she passed it to me. Which I love!

The usually purchase of produce, potatoes, onions and oranges. The cauliflower, I couldn't pass up, I bought 3 of them for $3.oo. It was so nice a white.

I really enjoyed my weekend. Shopping and weather wise, just couldn't beat it. Great way to start the week!

Have a great week!

Until Next Year.......

Why is it, it takes so long for Halloween to come around. Then it's gone in a blink of an eye. We all had a blast this Halloween. The weather was a bit chilly, but it didn't stop us at all. The kids have so much candy, will last them for a couple of weeks at least.

Love these hats I found at Kohl's. With a coupon and a discount on top of it, got them for $4 a piece. I picked up 5 of them. They were the table centerpieces for the party. At night, they really looked cool.
I think I had enough sugar to last me for a year. After all the celebrating, I still managed to hold on gaining any lbs. I'm at 6lbs and holding steady. Gosh, how those Almond Joys are calling my name.

Happy to say, I didn't have one cupcake. Even though I really, really wanted to just lick the icing off of everyone of them. That was a tough one not to do. I didn't bake them, so they weren't around waiting for all to eat. And I did send the leftovers home with everyone. So I wasn't tempted to lick that icing off.

The shopping days are upon us for the holiday season. Already started. Passing along this great coupon for Yankee Candle - B2G2 Free Hope you can use it!
