Lunch hour treasures

Today on my lunch break ( Thursday) I did some power shopping at a couple resale  stores that I hadn't been to for a while

I had wanted  a built in book cases under my counter in my kitchen but seen this little table already painted and shabby chic ed up and it fits . About the price of lunch at Hardees. I just added these books real quick to see if it would work

   I bought this little couple for price of some ice tea I thought they would look good in the book cases then moved them here on this marble and iron plant stand

This needlepoint rug was about the price of you and me having luch at McDonald's with a coupon LOL


This little tole painted wastebasket was $1.98 better than any goodwill store ? right . Would you believe last spring I sold one for $10.00 then here I am getting another one I can't decide what I want in my house .


This little lamp I found at an antique shop In Jefferson City Missouri (Tuesday). I knew I wanted her soon as I seen her but expected the price to be unbearable well was I surprised. Prices on lots of items have really dropped around here. She has a twin however she was double the price because of a fancier shade so she still lives in Jefferson City Missouri

Here is what her twin looked like lOl

I bought this brass napkin holder for my letters and cards $2.00

 I am always on the look out for pretty cards and love displaying them in my office , home office                                                                     
My box from Savannah hasn't arrived yet and I bought something else today after work and can't get it out of the car by myself so soon as I corner a neighbor I'll get a picture and show you

A friend gave me some hot pepers  because the garden was done for the year. However I don't do hot peppers but thought they looked good in the large shell on my counter
