Christmas.....In June???

I'm going to tease just a bit. I'm off for a few days so, I thought I'd share a couple of different things.
First, I found these pictures at Roses a few days ago. Aren't they wonderful?? I love them! Especially at $5.00 each! Who could pass that up? It just so happened I couldn't because they matched a shower curtain I already had!! I picked up the crown at Hobby Lobby for nearly nothing and the towels....that's a different story. The originals were brown with the trim. I didn't want brown so......I ripped the trim off and had to sew it on the white. Not a fun project but worthwhile.
I'm thinking I need at least 3 more bathrooms to put all this great stuff in!! Or, I'll start changing EVERYTHING in the bathroom once a week!

On to Christmas......what's a girl to do? Do you really WANT to Christmas shop in the middle of summer? Probably not but, there are no sales (yard sales) in the middle of winter. So the dilemma begins. Either you don't have anything new (you NEVER pay retail) or you wait for clearance AFTER Christmas. Well, that brings me to my newest finds. I like having new things before.....

I found my runner sled I used as a kid under the house. I dug it out cleaned it up and now, it will be used somewhere for the holidays.

I found this Santa at Goodwill. It's pretty big and $3.00. Did I want to pay $ It is my!

This was my find of that day!! I fell in love with it.....have you noticed I LOVE a lot of things? She was way in the back of a shelf. I dug her out to find she was only $1.00! She has a vintage feel to her. She sparkles!! Things got even better when I made it to the register she was 1/2 off!!! Still not believing this little darling was only 50 cents!

Well, I'm off for the weekend. Hoping I have a good time (thinking I would rather be at Hobby I hope you have a great weekend and looking forward to catching up on Sunday!


  1. Wow! You got some great bargains! I can't turn down anything Christmas related, if I love it; especially this time of year. This is when you get the deals. The pictures are nice too. Thanks for sharing your finds and have a lovely day.


    Yep, Hobby Lobby!
    And girl, I got some awesome deals on stuff--I will be doing a post about it next week.
    Thanks for the heads up and great reminder for us to do our Christmas shopping now.
    Hugs, me

  3. I could not have passed up the angel and what a bargain! She is just lovely!

  4. What a great bunch of finds. You are not the only one who shops for Christmas in June. I just found a bunch of ornaments. When you have 12 trees you need a lot of ornaments. Last year the cat thought it was fun to play with the ornaments and I lost quite a few. Oh and yes I did say 12, all my blogger girls are just going to die when I show the holidays. Have a great weekend.

  5. I know what you mean - no garage sales in December :( I think three bucks for the Santa is a good deal, but the angel is the best. I really love that sled. It'll be so cute!
