Estate Sales and Some Spring Shopping

On Saturday,  H and I took an early  Valentine's  day  trip to Amarillo Texas to have dinner and do some spring shopping.

I found some treasures at an estate sale.....

I bought this lamb needlepoint at an estate sale for $10.  

  I was excited to find some spring plaid fabric at a local fabric store

I bought a market fresh bouquet of carnations.....
I found these birdhouses for my fairy garden  at Tuesday Morning for $1.69 each.....they are about $8 each at the craft stores...

I also bought this Metal Garden sign at Tuesday Morning....

This Father Time yard long poster was an estate sale fine....$2

I loved the photo's that depict the life of a baby......

Growing into childhood....................................................young lady

Bride........and finally into "maturity"

I plan to use the fabric and framed needlepoint lamb picture in my spring decorating and  the birdhouses will show up in one of my fairy gardens.
 As in years past,    H and I will have a private romantic dinner at home tonight to celebrate Valentines Day.

 Happy Valentines Day!
