Weekend Treasure Hunt

I am still on the hunt for ceramic Christmas houses to redo in pastel colors for Christmas.    I can't wait to show you what I plan to do with all these houses I've been buying.!

I found some really neat houses this week end.     I haven't had a chance to see if the fountain really works in this one yet,  but I am hopeful that it does.

I was able to buy 7 houses at one yard sale......

This piece was only $1 and it works!     

I still have more houses to show you from the lot of 7 that I bought,  but for now I wanted to share the pretty plates I found..

You may remember that I bought several large hand painted plates last week,   and this week I found some smaller plates that will look pretty displayed with them.

I don't find square plates very often so I was glad to get this one.

I love to use this type of plates in my tablescapes.

I found an unusual cake plate .......

I'd never seen one like it and I was at the estate sale late Saturday and everything was half I grabbed it up for $5

Is everyone ready for Halloween?      My house is in a state of Hallo-fall-mas.    I have all kinds of decor!


  1. You find the best stuff. I can't wait to see what you do with all your cottages. I'd love it if you would share this at our new link party.

    Have a great week.

  2. I can't wait to see what you'll be doing with all the little houses. The way you Pennyfy them is so cute! How lucky finding small hand-painted plates that go perfectly with the ones you found last time. They're beautiful. Judy

  3. I have a lot of Christmas houses from when they were popular and could be bought reasonably priced at JoAnn's Fabric & Crafts. Haven't used them in quite a while other than a half dozen on top of my entertainment center all year. So anxious to re-invent them as you are. We have the same color scheme and taste so you will be my inspiration. I think they will make there way into every room in my house. Thanks so much for the idea. I have so many it will be a great winter project when the snow keeps me inside.

  4. I look so forward to your posts on thrift and yard sale purchases! You find so many treasures, especially those rose plates. Can't wait to see how you use the little houses too.

  5. The plates are just so gorgeous♥

  6. Everything so precious, especially the plates
