You got some great deals and my favorite is the hooked rug. I love the colors and it looks great on your painted floor.

Holy cow! You got some great stuff! I LOVE that topiary and the little dogs are darling. I haven't found anything like the items you found ,at those kinds of prices, in a very long time. Our Salvation Army and Goodwill stores have bumped their prices up so high, I could nearly save more money by buy the stuff new! :)

Love your blog,
Penelope

The litle rug certainly goes with the garden room floor Betty.

Marion said...

What great finds Betty. I love the colour of your Vaneli shoes.... almost a perfect colour match to a pair I bought last week. I’ll have to take a picture of mine and e-mail it to you.

Oh! what what wonderful memories I have of our time thrifting together last year. Didn't we have fun! Marion

I'm having problems getting my comment to go through.... have to try another way.
