great second hand finds

so this weekend my fabulous friend that just so happens to be a professional quilter, decided that she was going to *pay* me back for watching her boys one saturday so she could go to the town 45 minutes away...she told me to take my time...oh and i did. so with just katie in tow i went to the local second hand store that i usually don't even think of going in due to having the whole crew with me and being spoiled with the second hand stores up in salt lake city...but HELLO...these past two times that i've gone in there...i have not been dissapointed. so here's my...i mean katies new (partial) tea set for her room, it came with 3 tea cups, 2 saucers, and 2 plates...i gave her the two complete sets and i took the extra cup and put it in my decor in my kitchen. i love this tea set!!! it was 50 cents a piece.

i also found katie's new bedding for her little doll crib (which by the way was mine growing up), the mattress was a pillow case and the *cute* orange blanket was a steal at 50 cents! um and i finally went and bought this mirror that i have been coveting for over 5 months now. it was a $32 and i fretted over it and i've had it in my basket so many times when i've been at home depot only to put it back at the last minute...but i finally bought, it i figured if i've been thinking about it for over 5 months it was worth buying.

and i don't know if this is a figment of my imagination or what...but did anyone else have one of these little picnic baskets growing up? maybe i just *wished* i had one and so i created it in my head...but none the less the little one was as excited about this thing as i was.


other finds not pictured were: a chunky transformer that kyle absolutely loves, a WHOLE set of legos (which my boys have been asking for) for 3 dollars...oh and my *most favorite* is a yellow necklace for 75 cents...but i'll show you that one another day when i have an outfit to show it off!

I had one of those picnic baskets!!! I love all your finds. I think I'm just not patient enough. Or maybe the Provo DI just isn't worth the time.

great stuff! love that mirror.. Hope you have a great week!

Jenny said...

We had one of those baskets, too, so you're not making it up. Great finds! Can't wait to see your 75 cent necklace!

You found such cute stuff. And yes, if you've thought about that mirror for five months, you should definitely have bought it. I do that sometimes - I go home and think about it and if I still want it a week later, I go get it.

And you haven't met me, but I'm in your FRG group.

cute stuff v-i remember those picnic baskets but i didn't have one...i think haley's sister might have.
how did you do that cool thing with your labels? will you share the secret, please?

the label thing is called a "label cloud" and if you google it you will find the step by step instructions on how to do it.

Your mirror is SO worth it! I love the way you've hung it too. Very clever. Thanks for sharing.
