Fabulous Fun Finds

After a couple of days of yard and estate sales I think I have found some fun stuff that I just couldn't live without. First let me go back to our travels up here. Our friends pre-booked the hotel in Jackson not really knowing anything about it. The hotel was just fine but they kept apologizing for it. They had some free magazines in the lobby. I told our friends how bad could the hotel be with these freebies.
                                                      Who cares that they are from 1995.

In a antique shop in town I found my first frog. The couple we were staying with said she had one also and gave me my second frog. On Friday and Saturday here in Bellingham we hit the sales.
I found my third frog and these two white dishes. I think the edge would be great for scissors and then make a fun pin cushion for the inside. All the fabrics in the pictures was in a bag for $2.00.


These two cute baskets were 25 cents each. I have always wanted a nice pair of  pinking shears, these  were the bargain price of $3.00. They look brand new and were in their original package. 




At our last stop at a church sale I found my favorite finds of the day. They were closing and everything was half off. The Sudberry clock was $7.00 and the Sudberry box was $6.00 before the half off so I got both for $6.50. The two Framecrft dishes new in the box were $3.00 each so I got both for that price.

Even with the rain on Saturday I think it was a very productive day. Not sure where my next adventure on this trip will be.

Always keep love in your stitches,
Teresa
