We found a few goodies on our junkin trip Saturday

I made a stop at HL before we started our hunt Saturday morning...... just to see if they had anything left in the 80% of isle.   (We drove to Lubbock on Saturday and I hadn't checked out the HL there yet).     They had quite a bit left and I was able to score two more fairy cottages,  a  fairy,  and two garden  benches.

I found a couple of Christmas ornaments at an estate sale.....

I got this set of lights at the same sale.

My daughter will probably want these dessert plates,  she has a Paris theme at her home.   All four were only $2

I got a pretty spring sheet for $2 that I will repurpose as a tablecloth.

I did a post yesterday on the other things that I found......2 pretty pillows,  a pair of pink & white striped curtains,  and a couple of unframed oil paintings.

After a morning of yard...saling  ,   I stopped by Dollar General after lunch    I had heard that they had some 50's style knives and forks.   Sure enough they did.......a place setting for 4 was only $3.      They are not very heavy,,,,,more like picnic quality ...but well worth $3 for 12 pieces.

They also had some other pieces in pink.

What caught my eye this week?   I loved this old Victorian that was across the street from one of the yard sales I went to.

I didn't get a close up,  but the topiaries on each side of the door are hand painted.

 Thank you so much for stopping by to visit!
