My Garage Sale Finds

This morning my husband and I left the house at 8:30 to go garage saling. We had a great time and found some good deals. This is what we brought home:

The necklace came with earrings and it was $3. I think it might be Premier jewelry brand but I am not sure. For $1 we bought 3 sets of crab claw crackers and gave one to my mom. Vintage tupperware one is a container and the other is a jello mold with interchangable shapes to make a decoration on the top of the jello those were $1 for both, a large plate or picture stand for $1, a set of three candle holders for $2, and....

This milk glass rooster for $1! I have wanted one of these for a long time and cannot believe I found one at a yard sale for $1.

We also bought a wrought iron rocking chair to put out on our patio around our fire pit. That was $2. After garage saling we went to the Farmers market to buy vegetables. Then we had lunch at P.R.'s a mexican restaurant.

Gotta go. I am cooking eggplant parmesan with the fresh eggplant we had today then watching Media Goes to Jail.

New bathroom done!

My husband recently gutted and completely re did our guest bathroom. This is also the bathroom that our daughters use. We put in a block window, a pre fab shower tub, new tile, new vanity, and a mirror that doubles as a medicine cabinet. This first picture shows the block window that my husband installed. I bought the curtain at walmart it is Better Homes and Garden brand.
I am not quite finished here....
I love our new bathroom. The master bath is next.

Our new temporary addition..

Two weeks ago my daughter brought this little guy home. He was about two weeks old, scrawny, and he has a bum eye. I already have 4 cats at home and absolutely cannot keep this one. I have been trying to find someone to take it after I have weaned it from formula. Lots of lookers but no takers yet.

The other day I took it to the vet. It weighs less than one pound! They gave me medicine for its eyes. The bum eye looks better but the vet tends to believe it is useless. He will let me know this wednsday. In my next life I sure hope that I am not such a sucker for animals!
