Hey y'all! Thank you so much for your prayers and good thoughts and good advice. My back is feeling a lot better!! I went to a couple of yard sales and enjoyed myself. Here are a few of the things I picked up! Have a beautiful day!!
I found this little beautiful thing for my mom. She loves cats and her beloved cat died last year, it looked regal like this cat, so I am sure she will love it!

I got this cute lamp shade for my daughter. I can't tell you how much I paid because she will see this but it was below $1.01 and over .99 cents LOL She loves anything green! The lady said it is for a tall lamp stand...


I THINK this is a music stand? Not sure. Let me know if you know...I guess know it was $2.00 and wanted to come home with me!



I got all 3 of these for $1.00. I think I will paint them white andmaybe put a jewel or 2 on them!










I love this little basket. I ran a green ribbon thru it and then tied the linen napkins with the same green ribbon! Isn't it cute?

Oh! I forgot to answer you; I'm doing it the same grey as other rooms with white and red chinese toile curtains and black wrought iron scattered throughout??? I'm starting to paint the kitchen half today so I can get some order back before I need to cook for hubby and me; daughter is working at a restaurant waitressing! - J

Hello Lilly!
WoW what great finds-I love it when that happens! I really like the welcome home pillow and the music stand-those are my fav's.
Glad to hear your back is doing so much better!
May you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks for your recent and encouraging comments on my blog!
In regard to dessert ideas in your prior post, bar cookies are easy to make and serve and there are lots of recipes for those.
A tip: When you make brownies or other bar cookies, if you need to cut them while still hot, use a plastic knife. It won't drag through and mess up your cuts.

Wow!!! What great Treasures you found...You just never know what you will find....and the price was Fabulous, how can you not buy it....I also think it is some kind of a book stand...It would be great with a picture of something you love to look at....I have a book stand that I keep changing the pages of a book I love of gardens...
Take care.
Mo :-)
