{Tuesday Toot}

Since the weather is warm it seems that yard sales are popping up weekly in my neck of the woods. I decided this past weekend to hit up a few yard sales and I came home tooting about my loot! You just gotta love a good yard sale!

Found this cutie in mint condition! LOVE IT! 

This cute little tote sure opened the door for a little church service on Saturday.  Love how the Lord uses the most simple things in life to talk about HIM and give Him praise.

Isn't this cute for $1 and just in time for 4th of July!


If you know anything about Wilton baking products then you know the brand is good. I knew as soon as I saw this set of four tasty-fill mini cake pans I needed wanted it. I see some cute individual desserts happening soon. It had never been used and I got it for $2. They are $12.99 brand new at Joann's.


Ooh...don't ya just love these pretty pillows?
They may be for a giveaway soon....Or I might keep them. (LOL)


I need another snack plate about as bad as my grandbabies need more toys!!!! But I cannot resist this pattern. I have several different patterns of snack plates but this is my favorite. 


Table runner...washed it so now just gotta iron it! I just happen to have some dishes that will match this table runner perfectly!


I wanted more of these to add to my collection too!!! I love them and I use them a lot!  You can buy these most often for $1 each but when you can get 4 for $1....REALLY? How could I pass that up.


YES, YES, YES! The lady had broken the creamer dish but that's okay....Because it was worth the whole $5 I spent on this beauty!

 I feel like I done pretty good with my buys. 

So I decided to get an early start on my July 4th Tablescape so I could enjoy it. I decided I needed some cute little napkin rings.



I spotted these patriotic pin buttons. Six on a card for $1 so grabbed a couple of packs. 


Found the spool of wired ribbon at Walmart for less than $4. I cut 8 of these the length I wanted and hot glued the ends together by overlapping the ends just a tad.



Placed them around my napkin and pinned a button on each one. YAY...I am happy with them.  Hope to show you my 4th of July tablescape soon.




And here is what happens when you get side-tracked with tablescapping.....You get your toast a little too brown on the edge! But...the middle part was good!


Lastly, I wanted to share these two pictures with you. I've been capturing some little personality shots with these two grandgirls and my daughter (their mom) wanted to frame several to put in the girls bathroom. I loved the idea of this and I thought these turned out adorable.


These pictures capture their personalities perfectly.


Great things going on this week in our neck of the woods. One of my grand-girl's is being acknowledged for straight A's all year. Two grandbabies will be showcasing their talents and gifts with singing, piano and guitar in a recital. And I'm working on a vacation spot for a few days for a little getaway...Life is good my friends...even on a bad day! 


 I feel the sounds of the waves calling my name....


Sharing with Jemma this week for "Thoughts of Home".

    1. Praise the Lord we just got a mess of rain yesterday but no storm my way! Yes, I did get some great finds. I like yard sales much better cause they are better on the prices of things. We'd have a grand time going together junkin!

  2. Well I guess you do have something to toot about! Girl, you done good at the yard sale. My favorite is the patriotic wreath. Too cute but nearly as cute as those fun pictures!

  10. The sea has called my name for several years now, but I've not answered. :( Not sure the last time we were at the beach, but it's been many years. One of these days..... What great bargains you got. I just CANNOT believe that you have dishes to match that runner, though. LOL HOPE you have a great rest of the week.

  15. Good Morning Sweet Lady!
    You hit the jack pot with your keen eye. I would have snapped that table runner up too-I am visualizing all sorts of colorful Summer table settings with that as the anchor piece.
    How fun that you collect snack plates because I have 8 that were my Momma's. I wanted to use them at the Art & Craft retreat, but I forgot to get them out...
    So happy that the grands are doing well and making their sweet Nana ( I think you go by Nana...) so proud.
    Life is good and when we thank God for the blessing of it, it is even better!
    Happy Thursday lovely Lady.
    Great to have you join us at TOHOT!

  23. I enjoyed seeing all your finds and you do have a knack for finding" good stuff."
    Your grands are precious and you make great pictures of them. Let us see the final grouping of pics all framed.
    Your getaway at the beach sounds great. We just got back from a week's retreat at the beach and it was good for the soul. To see sunrises and sunsets were glorious! I love to see God's power and glory so evident at the beach. I see and feel Him everywhere but you know what I mean about the beach.
    Have a great week.

  26. I'm trying to catch up on my blog reading... More great finds, Cindy! I have a huge set of those snack dishes. Mom collected that pattern. I think there are 28-30 plates and cups, she also has a punch bowl, cake stand and mint tray! I've been saving them to use at a shower for Precious Daughter. Hopefully, we'll be able to use them... Maybe I'll just do a tablescape anyway! HA! Have a great week!

  28. I thought I was only a post or two behind but then I discovered that I'm W-A-Y behind! So, this evening I'm going to catch up and pop in to all the posts I've missed. I love the cute little black bag. What a sweet thing! And your garage sale finds and Fourth of July napkin rings are great! Best of all, I love what you've done with the photos of your grandgirls.
