Weekend Treasure Hunt

The weather was just gorgeous on Saturday... overcast.....low 70's.....but.  sadly not a drop of  rain.   Eastern New Mexico/West Texas doesn't get very much rain!

I started to clean this leaded glass lamp before I took my photo's......well, as you can see's going to take a lot more elbow grease than  I was willing to give this project right now....maybe later!     Wow is it dirty!     H  asked if $10 was their best price and they let him have it for $8.    

I haven't seen a piece of leaded glass in a long time,   and Saturday I found 2.    Couldn't pass up a nurse Dreamcicle since our daughter is a nurse.    The little baby shoe was only  25 cents

I can't wait to get a coat of white paint on this Victorian house......$8 

I dug through a suitcase of fabric samples and found 3 that I liked......10 cents each.....

Maybe I'll run some rope thru the grommets and make a banner......

Add some glitter?

I have a few more treasures on the counter across from the island.....

It's almost time to get the pumpkins out.....

I found this large chicken nest at a cute antique store in Lubbock Texas Saturday where everything in the store was 50% off 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
