Week End Treasure Hunt

I found lots of pretty things at the estate sales over the week end.

I was so excited to find a couple of yards of wide lacey trim for a dollar a yard.     I got 4 yards of upholstery fabric in a pretty rose pattern for a dollar a yard too!

I enjoyed giving  ceramic houses a makeover to use in my Christmas decor and when I saw these wooden birdhouses,   I thought they could use a makeover too!

A couple of rose crocheted pieces.....

Fitz and Floyd for all seasons grapefruit slice potpourri bowl.....

I'm looking forward to temps in the low 70's this next week here in Eastern New Mexico.....maybe I'll do some spring cleaning in the yard!


  1. You did find some great items! I love the birdhouses the way they are. I love the doilies!

  2. The textile's are beautiful. I can never pass any type of fabric or ribbon if my life depended on it, great finds.

  3. The ceramic houses are fabulous!!!!

  4. Penny,
    Love the bird houses and the fabric and lace..... I just went through 5 tubs of fabric that I thought I would use to sew clothing for myself. I used to make all my own clothes in high school. I realized that I might never get the time to use this fabric so I kept what I thought I could use for crafting and donated the rest to Volunteers of America, condensing the 5 tubs down to 1!!!

  5. What a beautiful collection of goodies that you found!! I love the crochet roses!!
