SATURDAY...stuff....finds and whatnots...

How often have I found a sign on the road for a rummage that the words, address or info is written so tiny...and then directions are impossible to find...

well we went to a church rummage...(bought some VIDALIA ONIONS from the nice shriner guy in the parking lot...YUM...SUCH SWEET GOODNESS!!! FOR SUCH A GOOD CAUSE!)

went into the church and found this series of signs...

nice inviting welcome....


now....


encouragement..for the journey...


and positive reinforcement when we got there!


gotta love GOOD DIRECTIONS!!!


Happy WARM Saturday!!! PERFECT enviroment for the annual playground rummage at a neighborhood school! It starts at 8...BUT if you aren't there by 7:30...you DEFINITELY MISS OUT! lol...well actually...you see all the goodies that you would have drooled over...walking out the gate! (been there)

found this sweet wooden..handpainted bed tray! It folds flat and has an adjustable top...





Here are some more of the goodies acquired today! (they get a bit better to see if you click on the pic!)

got some fun vintage jewelry to remake...a betty boop brand new watch...hmmm...where should THAT go? lol...



There was one sale that the couple had a scrapbook art store and they were selling all their inventory...omg00dness...new goodies...books 1.00! swavorski crystals..48 in a pack for a quarter! fabric paper for a dollar a pack! i was in heaven!!!

new bottle of modpodge for 50 cents! one is glow in the dark..(thinking HALLOWEEN!)



and of course maddy got some goodies too!!! She got a bracelet kit and a water sand picture and another DOLPHIN for her collection!!! (this one is SPARKLY!!)



got a baggie of vintage wooden game pieces...for a dime...and had to giggle..when i saw the orphan ken shoe..in the bag..have to kick around some ideas to use that! (i'm sooo bad)



...and lookie at this sweet clock...the little tail wags the minutes...and it keeps PERFECT TIME!


found this cute rubber stamp (then found out it was for polymer clay! (although the little faces will be cute art doll faces too...even if i do stamp them!)




after i got the stamp mold above.(like the mold NEEDED THE CLAY TO GO WITH IT...).we swung by a sale set up on the middle of a field...was a sale fundraiser. (BIG open field with ONE RUMMAGE SET UP IN THE MIDDLE...lol...don't know if noone else showed up to sell...or they wanted this PRIME SPOT..LOL)...so we poked about their tables a bit...and i found this CLOSED plastic shoe box...so i opened it and found 14 bricks of polymer clay and carving tools!!! whole box for 1.50!!!!



books and papers etc...that we also got too!



grand total for the day? just under 20.00....oh no wait.. got maxx a "just my size, little boy, gotta be like papa" reclining chair... he sat in the playground lot in his chair with his little legs propped up on the foot rest...everyone had to stop to make a comment about him and his chair!



so KICK UP YOUR FEET, RELAX and have a lovely day!!! hugz til next time!!!
just DON'T ASK to sit in his "PAPA CHAIR"!!!

You are right, the clock is cute! But the little guy in his man-chair is even cuter!
