Can you ever have too many baskets?? I don't think I can. I found this perfect little basket for two dollars. I know I can use it to make a gift basket for someone's birthday or something.
Here's a tarnish resistant candy dish. Shaped like a heart, just the thing for Valentine's day. It was mark down to 3 dollars. I thought, what a deal !
One dollar for six napkin rings. I may paint them white or cream. I use cloth napkins so much, I just could not pass these up. It was a small treasure hunt for me. I had forgotten my camera and was upset with myself....I always like to take photos to glean through later.
Had a great lunch at the Cracker Barrel . It made me think of my mother while we were there. She always love eating there or Bob Evans. I miss her so much. If you are fortunate enough to still have your parents....hug them for me. You are blessed.
Today is cold and gray. Snow and nasty weather headed into the midwest, then onto the northeast. I have to think, spring is near and I am ready. Enjoy this coming weekend. XO
You found some real treasures! My favorite is the candy dish! It is pretty here in Texas. Cooler but still blue skies. Rain should be coming in tomorrow and will be more like winter weather. Hopefully the rain will wash away some of this mountain cedar! Deanie gave me the day off to rest so I am still in my gown and am thinking about taking a nap in the guest room. I could get used to these slow days......ReplyDelete
Bless your heart Linda. I know those allergies are taking a toll on you and LD. The rains should help. It is good for you both to rest when you can. Take care, xoxo,SusieDelete
What special treasures. I love baskets, and for years have used them in gift giving. Being a Pastor's wife for so many years, I tried to keep my gifts similar so for a bridal shower, would always put 2 pretty cups or mugs in a basket with a pretty cloth napkin, or doilie and a message that communication was the key to a good marriage...ReplyDelete
I like the candy dish too.
Wanda, I love that gift idea. I like to write out some recipes , put with kitchen towels and pot holders. Blessings for a great weekend. xoxo,SusieDelete
No, you can never have enough baskets! I love your finds and know how you feel about the camera! I have done that so many times myself. We have sun right now! The bad is coming...not ready. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
You too Tete. We will have to wait a bit longer for spring, I guess. I need a smaller purse sized camera. :):) Be careful this weekend. xoxo,SusieDelete
Sweet little treasures, I can see the basket filled with goodies for a birthday gift.ReplyDelete
Our hometown is famous for starting the first Cracker Barrel store and restaurant, the founders, local folks who knew what good country cooking is all about :)
I'm a taste-tester for them, can you believe getting paid to try new recipes...lol
Stay warm !
Jo, That is amazing. I always get the grilled chicken tenders , green beans and hash brown casserole. I like the grits for breakfast time too. If my mom were alive, she would love hearing about you . Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
You found yourself some awesome things. Your basket would perfect for a gift basket! Nice find!ReplyDelete
Hi Susan, I just loved the simplicity of that basket. I have just always loved baskets....but will not pay very much for them. Hope you have a fun weekend, xoxo,SusieDelete
Great finds, Susie..I know you'll find the perfect use for each and every one of them..Yes, that weather is headed right for us...5-8 inches Sun...Cute candy dish..Almost looks like pewter..Enjoy the weekend..ReplyDelete
Missy, It's Sat. morning...already went for milk this morning before the crowds...ha. I actually went to the CVS for my meds and had to kill an hour before they opened...just want to scream..i should have called for their hours. The sun is out and the news is talking some heavy snow falls. Let's stay safe. We'll just watch our birds. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I always look at the baskets and find so many cute ones. I went to the thrift store yesterday for the first time in weeks. It was fun! Happy weekend my friend! Hugs, DianeReplyDelete
Diane, I just love having a fun time junking. I think it's the fun...not that I need any thing. LOL. Hope your weekend is nice...cause we are going to get snow starting this evening. xoxo,SusieDelete
Cute things you found. My sister makes gift baskets and sells them. They are always beautiful, so she is always looking for baskets. I love that little heart dish.ReplyDelete
Kathy, that was one of the reasons I started looking at basket...to make some bath, baby shower, bridal shower, and birthday gifts in them. You can fill them with economical things or maybe a handmade item. Hope you are safe this weekend. xoxo,SusieDelete
Oh Susie, I love your buys! smile... Everything looks like things I'd buy too. Those napkin rings will really be pretty when you paint them.ReplyDelete
Yes, our weather is changing too. Snow in the forecast along with below zero temperatures! But it is still winter, I guess!
Gert, I think the blue of the napkin rings is not the right shade...so I think cream or white will work better. Hope you have some birds singing before the bad weather. Ours is coming in tonight. xoxo,SusieDelete
Yep Susie we are going to get some heavy snow starting tomorrow night ughhh! I guess it was bound to happen! I love Cracker Barrel too. I love the cute shopping before or after eating. Have a great week end and stay warm and cozy inside when the snow starts.ReplyDelete
Kris. I think we are going to be shoveling this one. LOL. I do love those cute things at Cracker Barrel stores. I sure was tempted on a couple things. Even their clothes are nice. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I may not shop for those kind of items but there are items in that kind of store that I might be tempted to buy. I have to do the opposite, unload things that I have collected over my lifetime. Not all of course.ReplyDelete
It's windy and cold and another storm is coming. Not as big as the last one, if they are right, 6-12 inches. I'm not going anywhere until Tuesday.
I'm in the same boat as you, Susie. I don't have my mother either, and I miss her terribly sometimes. I really like that silver heart candy dish, and what a great deal on the basket. I was browsing around for baskets the other day, and would you believe they were $15 - no way was I gonna spend that much on a basket haha.ReplyDelete
