More favorite finds

A few posts back I shared with you some of our junkin on vacation finds. Now, I know it is almost Christmas and I should be sharing Christmasy things but I was beginning to get nostalgic overload! And besides, I didn't show you all my good junkin' finds yet!! Here's a couple more that were very cheap and I love them.

First, this little banner that says, Home Hearth and Country. I love that! The little primitive looking stars are hand stitched. And I love the patriotic colors too. I think it was 50 cents.

Actually now that I look at it, the little banner does look Christmasy!!

Then there's this beautiful wicker bed tray that I fell in love with. We found it at a tag sale in the mountains of Vermont. There were four very nice ladies doing the sale together and since we bought so much :)) they gave us some great bargains!! I was almost afraid to ask the lady with the bed tray how much she wanted for it and when she told me 2 bucks....well I had that thing in the car so fast it made her head spin!! Two dollars for this:

I have a little fantasy about this bed tray: I'm lying in bed on Christmas morning all cozy and warm and my DH comes into the room carrying this cute little tray. I can see the steam rising and then I see that he has made me biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs and country ham with a side of homemade apple butter!! And of course a big piping hot cup of coffee (or hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows, depending on my mood!) in my favorite Christmas mug:

There is a red checkered placemat and a matching cloth napkin held by a snowman napkin holder!! Oh yes, and I see a nice vase with a poinsetta in it. Then he tells me just to stay in bed, watch tv and take it easy and he will clean the whole house and get it all ready for Christmas AND cook the food! Hey, if you're gonna dream, dream big!!

Good Afternoon Hope,
You got lunch fixed? LOL. I didn't get up till 10:30a.m. Me and hubby stayed up till 3:30a.m. watching t.v. I'm just now on my second cup of coffee. LOL. Oh, I love the little shelf with all the things on it. And it does have a Christmasy look to it. I bet if you added a few small Poinsetta's to it, it would make it look really good too. I love the wicker food try. You found some very good bargains. Yes my friend, if we are going to dream, well we might as well dream big. I know it would never come true for me. LOL. Thanks for sharing your great and beautiful finds with us. Take care my friend and have a great Saturday. May God Bless You and Yours. I'm not going to post anymore till after Christmas. I am just visiting a bit today. I've got way too much stuff to do. "MERRY CHRISTMAS" to you and yours from our Family. JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON!!!!

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.
