Finds from last Friday

Found this sweet little chick.  The colors are just so cheery.  I love the flowers on top of her head.  On the bottom it says it was made in Japan..  Could not leave it behind.

I was so excited when I spied these feed sacks.  It seems like I am not seeing them as much.  Warrenton is coming up and always find a few there.  The red and white crocheted pots holders remind me of Christmas peppermints.  They are going to look so cute among some Christmas decorations.

When I say these Betsy Ross paper dolls and they are in good condition I knew they had to come home with me.  The outfits is this paper doll set are so so cute.

I joined Cheryll's OASS at  my partner was Carin at  she is so sweet.  Just look at the knitted scarf she sent me.  I tried to get the details in the pictures.  

I love this scarf.  It is so soft and in my favorite color,

She also included these mug rugs and candies.  I am in purple/lavender heaven.  Thank you so much Carin for the beautiful gifts.  A big THANK YOU to Cheryll for being such a wonder swap momma.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful evening with there families.


  1. Oh where do I start??? The duck is so cute! She would have come home with me too! And so would the feedsacks! I have the exact same "peppermint" potholders already. What great lavander gifts you received!
    Thanks for sharing Donna! :)

  2. The chick is adorable and I would have brought it home with me too!
    Feed sacks are hard to find in my area. The potholders do look like peppermint.
