I found one garage sale this weekend. There was not a lot of stuff there but I did find this for 8 dollars. I only paid 8 for it because it goes with my pink (red and white?) things I already have. The lady was asking 10bucks. I didn't want it that much.
I also bought this small plate, it was pretty and only 25c.
This old Button hook was also 25c
Then I decided I could use this lovely tea pot who had lost its lid. A plant pot, what else. Perfect for 50c
Another 50c item will come in useful when I find something to hang in it.
When we were at Manitou gardens I picked up some herbs. I found this old box in the garage. I had Gerry screw it on the deck. I will keep it there for now.
I love old boxes. When I find them,(or baskets) I have a job relegating them to the outside. I am always aware that it wont take long for them to be weathered away.
While I was getting the box out I refound this old mail box. Not sure what to do with it. I bought it as a planter but still not sue where to put it. I need to clean off the brown paint and make it more presentable.
These are the blocks that I got from Laura, I am thinking around the pond and the garden there will be a great place for them. If not, plenty of other places to put them.
Its just a question of getting down to work. Some of my other treasures I have not found a permanent home for yet so this glass dish on its base will sit there for now.
At least the things I found this week were the right price for a change.

This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
