Weekend Treasure Hunt

I found lots of neat stuff on my treasure hunt this past week end!

Sweet pink wicker handbag.....or maybe a magazine holder?

Can't pass up a pretty rose plate for a dollar......

Shadow box picture frames.....a dollar each

I always pick up buttons when they are pink or .........

  I got 3 bags for a dollar a bag.....

Cute pot holders.......

Ceramic garlic holder........

As you can see,    most of the stuff I bought was a favorite price!

Didn't see this on the island?    That's because it had already found a home in the sun room  ( it was also a dollar)

This basket had already found a home in the sun room too......and also a dollar!

I have it full of magazines from the 60's.......they were in a free pile!    The lady thanked me for taking them......hummmm.....

Here is where they found a home.

My patriotic plates have already found a home in the kitchen......

These plates are such a pretty shade of "red"  that they go perfect with my pink kitchen accessories.

The plates fit right in with my farmhouse kitchen........

Wish there had been 4 of them!

See how pretty they look on the kitchen counter!  
 I keep out patriotic decor most of the summer.....from Memorial Day,  thru the 4th and right up to Labor Day!
