I had lots of plans this weekend....Yard sales, the Super Cheap Thrift, the Haunted Battlefield Tour at the Civil War Battlefield and a few other things. But, rain moved in Friday and all day Saturday, forcing me to stay in my own cozy house and make Red Hot Cinnamon Apples and all PINK Shiny Brite Wreath. Sometimes, a change in plans isn't such a bad thing after all.
I did manage to find one yard sale on Friday before the rain started.
I think this picture is funny - I am not a fan of gold, but all my purchases were gold. Two small gold wooden frames (to be painted white), a gold tree topper, a gold owl bookend and a nice old book full of gold accents and photos. Each item was 50¢. I find that owls sell well on Etsy, so I generally pick them up when I find them cheap. I don't think the tree topper is old, but I still like it.
At this particular yard sale, they had shelves full of Christmas items, but it all appeared to be newer things. Lots of Hallmark items, light strands and those cheesy singing Christmas animals. I did spy a plastic baggie full of miniatures for 50¢, so I decided to grab it without even looking at it. There had to be something in there worth 50¢, right?
