My Garage Sale Finds and Something From England

Hello my friends! I just thought Iwould share some goodies I brought home with me from the city-wide Coburg Garage sale. And was it city-wide. I bet there were over 100 garage sales.

Well, I didn't bring much home considering there were so many garage sales but remember I took Snail Mel with me! I love this little bear with the purple and lavender! Yep, she went into my lavender room! And she is very happy. Her name is Kristin.

This is a big roll of leaf ribbon! I love the texture of it. The lady that sold me all the ribbon said her brother owned a florist shop up in Portland and has a warehouse full of this kind of stuff and is just getting rid of all of it.

I had to show you the price of it. All the photos that you are seeing here-all of this cost me $13! Isn't that great? Keep going there is more.

I love this stuff! I love the color and the holes! It feels like it's made out of metal.I bought a roll of black and brown too. They are huge rolls.

Double click and you can see the ribbon and lace better. There is a bit of red tulle too. The burgundy roll in the middle looks like tapestry.

And this beautiful flock of birds, little brooms, a tiny basket, little wreaths, and a bag full of pinecones and other nature stuff!

There were a couple little owls stuck in the bunch too.

Isn't she sweet and petite?

Just another view.

Could this be the Mommy and the Daddy? :)

A couple nature pods out of the bag of goodies that I had to show you up close.

Yes, I know. It's broke. But I got it for 2 bits and I know I can use it for something! Side view of the box. What do you think? Was it all worth my money? I am pretty happy with my goodies.

Now I want to share what I got from my friend Liz @ Lululiz in Lalaland...

I just love the image of this girl and the lace and flower.

Aren't these pretty and dainty?

Here are the pink ones. If you want some for yourself, Liz still has some. Go see her!

Just a close-up of one of the flowers. They are so pretty.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you liked my treasures I found and my flowers from England.

What have you been up to? Are you creating something wonderful?

Have a wonderful week, my friends.
