Whaaaat's Up Wednesday???

Leaving tomorrow for the Nebraska Junk Jaunt.  We are only going to be gone for three days, so I might not post until we get back.  But I wanted to show you my great thrifting buys before I go!

Yesterday I had a doctor appointment at 1PM and hubs had one at 4PM, so I told him I would go along.  So guess what my doctor said?  "Your appointment was yesterday!"  Oh no.....another senior moment.  So what's a girl to do with three hours to kill?  Since my doc was over 60 miles from home, I did what every red-blooded shopaholic would do....I shopped.  Now I know that I am going thrifting out of state tomorrow, but I gave in and drove to the thrift store.  And what a great day I had!  It must have been craft surplus day, 'cause just look at my finds:

This bag was full of Americana items: flags, hearts, raggedies, firecrackers.  All new for $2!
 I got two three yard pieces of new burlap, each for $1.95......Six yards for less than four dollars!
 This bag was full of little flocked reindeer with santa hats on.  Only $1.95.
 Five little brooms for .95.  I will probably use them with my witch dolls.
 Wooden snowmen ornies to finish.  All for $2....what a bargain!

 I bought this bag of assorted unfinished wood for the rolling pins.  I will make ornaments from them.
What to do with the rest..........

My show last weekend was a success.  Some of my big sellers were the printables and of course the scrubby pumpkins'
I sold out of my little dish cloths.....gonna have to make some more:

I have a couple of weeks before my next show so I have some time to get a few things finished after I get back from Nebraska!  Can't wait to share my finds with you!

Halloween Printable

I know that it has been a while since I posted, but I really have been busy.  Tonight I am setting up for my first show of the season.
It starts tomorrow....hope to see you there!
I've also been working on a few items.  I usually always have some small candy treats that I sell.  My pumpkin poop is made of candy corn.  I also have Bugs and Kisses, simply Hershey's kisses and plastic Halloween critters in a bag with a cute tag on it.  This year I am adding Witch's Warts.  These are chocolate chips in a tiny bag.  I got the idea from Pinterest but I designed my own tag and even wrote a catchy little rhyme.  If you want to do these, simply download this printable.
I printed four images per page and cut them 3.5 inches by 5 inches and fold in half.  Staple them to a 
3x4 bag that has a small handful of chocolate chips in it.  

I also made 
This is a simple candle ring.  A wire circle is tied with strips of fabric and placed around a lighted electric candle.  What a cool centerpiece!

These are some little dish cloths that are embroidered with little snowmen.  I simply added the free printable that I, again, found on pinterest.  If you are new to Pinterest, check it out.  Follow me for some of my "found" ideas.

Well, my friends, I am off to set up.  Next week, my sis and I are going on our latest adventure.  We are going to Nebraska's Junk Jaunt.  Stay tuned for updates on our trip and my fall show schedule!
