Sunday Shopping Secrets

Go take a look at the other finds this week, and be sure to thank Blossom for doing such a great job hosting!!!

These are a few of the treasures i have picked up along the way.
Nothing really earth shattering, but just little treasures to keep me busy. =0))

This is a shoe box full of wood whatnot's and pieces.
Never know when you might need one of them.
Only $1.00 for the whole box!

The brown box with the tapestry is a jewelry box.
I use those for my bird nests.
Just .50 for that one!!!

This silver pitcher is very heavy.
It has all kinds of writing on the bottom, but the pic did not turn out.
I forgot to write it down, so will just have to think it is very valuable. =0))
Anyone know what it is for??
The handle is so big.

Here are two bigger projects.
I just painted a similar table black for someone.
It turned out so great think I'll do this one the same way.
It will cost me more for the paint than it did for the table!

And this cupboard is unique.
That door does not fold open as it seems it would.
It actually just swings open from the left.
Can you believe only $5.00?

I'll save some of my other finds for another day.

My shopping tip for today??
Have fun!!!!
There is no treasure worth getting in a fuss over
when someone else walks away with it.

As far as things i would like to have,
that would be having my house and yard fixed up,
and my sweet fella is working on that. =0)

Blessings on your day.
