- My God, she's beautiful!
- My goodness, she's intelligent!
- My dear, she's grown up!
We laughed a lot! (Thank you so much, Lord!)
So now, dry your eyes and put away your hankies 'cause I'm gonna show you what I bought. Let's start at the Sally Ann.
My TOPS group is having an in-house Easter/Spring auction in a couple of weeks. I bought this beautiful, brand-new in the box set for $3.99.*
The cup and saucer here (49 cents!!) will get filled with Easter straw and some pretty soaps and bath oil beads for the auction. I haven't made up my mind yet about giving up the other 2 dishes ($1.99 each). *
I've been wanting a shortbread pan for eons but they're so darned expensive ($30-$50). While Molly was in the dressing room, I took the time to go through a cart which was on it's way from the pricing room to the store. Look at this beautiful find for $1.99! I love the pattern too; my grandma was of Scottish descent and her maiden name was Thistle!*
This is such a pretty vase ($1.99) - heavy, good quality; and it reminds me of Barbara Eden's Genie bottle. And although in the photo it looks bent at the top, it's perfectly straight; I think it's an optical illusion from the twisty bit on the stem.*
And at Value Village, I bought my clothes and this great black lamp shade $1.98. The lamp was a recent find at my local Frenchies ($6.00). Pretty sweet!*
After I dropped Molly off, I had to pass through Bayer's Lake again. So, I stopped at Starbucks for a yummy fix for my 1.5 hr drive home. But guess what happens to be almost straight across from Starbucks?
And although I didn't succumb the first time I saw them a month ago, this time I could not resist. I mean, who can resist this $9.99 bit of polka dotted spring-burst nesting heaven?
Tomorrow the girls and I head out for an overnight in the Annapolis Valley. And Monday I plan on an early start and a leisurly drive back home via Coldbrook (home of one of the best Frenchies in the province) and Berwick (wherein lies Bargain Harley's).
All purely in the name of blogging research, you understand!
