Cotton Boll Wreath and Weekend Treasure Hunt

We didn't have any auctions to go to over the Labor Day week end and very few yard sales,  but I did manage to pick up a few treasures.
We drove over to Plainview. Texas and stopped by a big Antique Mall where some of my favorite booths just happen to be.   One of the booths had 75% off everything.....she wasn't closing her booth,  but wanted to start fresh with a new look for the upcoming holidays.    These sweet poodles were marked $5 which was cheap enough....but with the 75% off....only $1.25 for all three.   

She also had 3 of these mantle hangers,  so with the discount they were only $2 each.   I plan to use these year round to hang stuff from my mantles.
Love this vintage table cloth and 4 matching napkins that I found at a yard sale for $1.50.     The  cherubs are marked Christmas Around the World 1998 (House of Lloyd)....they were $1 each.
I should have had this photo with the other purchases that I bought at the 75% off booth....oh well......the set of 3 dresser scarves was $1.
 On our day trip to Plainview,  we passed so many beautiful fields of cotton.....sorry,  I didn't get any photos!   Anyway,  it got me to thinking about how pretty a wreath of cotton bolls would be.     So, when I found some stems of faux cotton at Michaels,   I couldn't resist picking up a few.     I clipped  the cotton bolls off the stems and glued them together to make a wreath.   
Have a wonderful week.....see you soon!

  3. Bonjour chère amie,

    Le mois d'août est terminé, les vacances également... En ce qui me concerne, il est temps de reprendre mes habitudes... Je suis heureuse de vous retrouver et d'ouvrir à nouveau la porte de votre univers et d'y découvrir de nouveaux trésors. Très joli billet !

    Gros bisous ♡

  7. Oh, Penny. You are an answer to my prayers! I ordered a cotton boll garland a while back and have been kicking myself ever since as it is kind of stiff to drape nicely and I wished I had bought a wreath. Now I know how to get a wreath. One of those, why didn't I think of that myself!! things. You sure scored on all your pretties. Those little poodles are so retro and so cute..Happy Tuesday..Judy

  10. I remember those poodles from the 1950's and 60's. Lots of things made like that but those are the cutest I've ever seen. You DO find the most wonderful things for the most wonderful prices. I really do think it's all in where a person lives. Some I've heard complain that there are no garage sales around them....so it just must be the area.
    GOOD JOB! :)

  11. You found some really cute things, Penny. I really like the cotton boll wreath! I need to get to Michael's for some of the stems -- the faux ones would be much easier to work with than the real thing!

    ReplyDelete
  12. WOW that wreath is amazing! I would never have thought cotton balls!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hi Penny!! Thank you SO much for shopping in me & my mom's booth! It makes me happy seeing all the pretty treasures in such a fun & beautiful home. Come see us again soon! :) ~Kristi

  14. Love the cotton ball wreath. I didn't know the crat stores had faux cotton balls. But then again I rarely go to that section. Thanks for that information. Have a good day. http://bushelandapickle.com/2014/09/03/influences-on-home-design/

  15. My mom used to have to pick cotton every fall with her brothers and sisters when she was a kid. She said it was hot, sweaty, scratchy work. She was famous for telling my sister and I that " At least you don't have to pick cotton." whenever we complained about our chores. I should make her a wreath and have that quote as a banner across,lol. She would get a kick out of it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. That is so creative. I remember picking cotton when I was a teenager to earn money for fabric to make my clothes for school. Ugh...hard work and I can still feel the stinging cuts you get if you grab the cotton wrong. Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop. I hope you saw the giveaway I posted yesterday. xo
