8 more sleeps
I found a few more cute holiday decorations and some great deals. I picked up a set of everyday corning wear dishes with a cute flower pattern on them, 10 dinner plates, bread and 10 butter plates and 10 bowls for $4.00. I also scored a bunch of tools that will come in useful when we get our house. They are older tools but in great shape and sometimes older means better built. I picked up a vintage saw,with a gorgeous carved handle, rake, shovel, hoe, pick axe, pitch fork and vintage hand rake weeder. The tools were a few dollars each and will sure come in handy when we move to our own house. The handle of the saw is so pretty that I might just hang in on wall and maybe paint a scenery on it. I picked up a handmade log bench for 3 dollars and a picnic basket with dishes and silverware for 2 dollars. At one of the stores I found a cute pair of beside lamps without shade for 1.00 each, where can you get lamps for that price. I am always on the lookout for cute doilies and embroidered table cloths and embroidered doilies and this week I found some really beautiful ones to ad to my collection. I can't wait to get to Ontario and display my finds in our new house, and start organizing either a store or a regular flea market venue at my home. Until then I will keep collecting and restoring and recovering furniture and dream of our new home and being with family again.
