Good weather, good company, good bargains..

First, the weather:  Warm leaning towards hot..but cool as a Popsicle inside thanks to the air conditioner we are fortunate enough to have..


The company? Mr. B and the pups..I love spending time with them and while we worked outside in the yard, the pups sun bathed..just being together, working, getting stuff done..it was great..



OK, now for the good bargains:

 
a great "train case" for my watercolors - I will "dress it up" and make it my own..can't wait!

2 art cabinets - complete with..

..lots of supplies in every drawer..

These Salt & Pepper cuties..

This is actually platter size..hUGe..

and pretty..my kinda plate  platter..

Mystery bag..a whopping $.50 :-)

These are some l.o.n.g zippers..wonder what they were used for..



These are like crocks..but not "crocs"..but crocks..like in the olden days..crocks., crocks..that's fun to type..

So, another Monday is on it's way..and I am happy I have a job..there are soo many that want to work, but have been displaced..

But I still long for a shorter work-week and a longer week-end..

One can wish..

Have a good one, okay?

You sure will have fun when you retire with all those bargains and activities that you love doing.
It is great to hear that the simple things in life can make you so happy. Sometimes I feel happy just staring out of the window and daydreaming. (wishing that my Mr B would work in the garden)

Looks as if you snagged some wonderful stuff! You can make a housecoat and use that long zipper. We all want to see the train case when you make it your own. Hope that this is a lovely short-seeming week, though we don't want to wish any time away...

Great finds I like the little salt and peppers my great grandmother had a hug collection and we always loved to go through it as children. I want a good suitcase like that too there all to ruffed up and broken when I find them.You did great with all the wonderful finds. Your pups are looking so adorable. hugs,Pearl
