weekend rummage loot...

found some stuff when we went to pick up the pavers...
this is the leftovers that everyone else passed up...
fiesta chocolate cup and saucer...
mint condition...
going for $22 with shipping on ebay this morning...
50 cents...
and it looks good here...
2 flowers pots...
pale blue and yellow...
the urn is from Rebecca...
her hubby delivered it this morning...
flower pots were either a quarter or 50 cents each...
urn was $2 at Rebecca's barn sale...
collection so far...
lovin' the color scheme...
then, there were these 2 galvanized birdhouses...
cheep cheap...
and these 2 little watering cans...
big enough to hold a votive candle...
see how it all goes together?
then there was this little fireking bowl...
and this little bowl...
forgot what the pattern is, but sold a lot of it at the antique mall...
this shallow veggie bowl...
and this small platter...
not sure on the pattern anymore...
apple or cherry blossom, maybe?
and there are 4 pair of socks and a purse...
it was all $4.70...

you don't even want to know what got away...
I didn't go for a reason...
we are on a shoestring budget right now...
and I had to be very good...
but this is one lady's sale that I could easily bring it all home with me...
she has great tastes and when she does a sale...
she marks it to sell quick...
bargains gallore...
I have 2 special ladies that I wait for their sales...
because they are that good...

we have a heat advisory of 115 today...
pray for DH...
he's working in it...
there's no ac in a pole barn...
we have closed down the front part of the house...
2 bedrooms and a bathroom...
going to be hanging out inside all day...
the inside needs a little time spent on it anyway...
been playing outside too much, I guess...

hope you are inside staying cool or you are floatin' in a pool...
check on your family and neighbor's...
especially the sick and elderly...
the heat is just too hard on them...
donate a fan to a local charity...
or if  you have an old ac unit just takin' up space in the garage or basement...
dig it out and give it away...
it could save someone's life...
love you guys!

The flower on your plate is a dogwood. I googled for the pattern, but didn't see anything like it. Great finds at the sale! Lucky you!

Hi Tete,
I am in love with your little light blue flower pot! I've never seen one like it before! And if you want to cool off, just come out here! I don't think it made it much passed the mid 60's today! brrrr! Keep cool!

Tete-What great finds. My mother had a whole set of those little pearly-gold FireKing bowls and I had some of those Chocolate Fiesta dishes when we were first married. You did good!!! xo Diana
