Honey.... Come quick

This afternoon I am sitting here enjoying some "ME" time and the phone rings!
{not a telemarketer this time} It's hubby...
"Hi babe I am down at Kim and Butchs' house"...... pause.... "you need to get down here right away"
Me... "whats wrong?"
Hubby.... "they are having a sale and you need to come quick"
So I jump on the dune buggy and hit the gas.....
Looky what I brought home with me......

A Claire Murray kitty throw {new with tag}
Sorry the picture is washed out.... I hung it on the line to get a quick picture and the sun is so bright! The colors are really vibrant and pretty!
Think I will throw this over the wicker love seat on the porch!
And put it in the guest cottage in the winter!
How much????? a whopping $3.
Ouuu I love this victorian ladies in the garden plate.....
perfect for our front room!

Are you ready for this?
This set of cherub sconces cost 50 cents!!!!
I am so freakin excited!
I am going to paint them to bring out the detail!
Not sure if I will hang them in our bedroom or the front room!
{What a steal... they are metal with glass globes}
Here is a close up so you can see how sweet they are!
Great deal huh!
One scoop or two????
I had to buy this cherry cute purse.....
{25 cents}
I think I will keep all the barbie shoes and lil accessories in it for the girls!
I also bought a few books, a statue, a silver bowl, suitcase, albums and some other goodies!

I am so glad hubby called me....
I trained him well!

Until next time,
Hugz and Blessings

Romeo has had this Lavender Festival for about 6 years now. It's on 34 Mile Road about 1 1/2 East of M-53 (Van Dyke Expressway). It is hosted by Gariel's Gardens. They also have a store in downtown Romeo.

Gabriel's Garden Lavender Boutique

My most favorite part is the Harp player. So elegant, so wonderfully fragrant. I can't wait until next year.
