Erin over at TheQueenOfClearance posted that they were on sale at Pier 1 for just $3. I went right over the next day and bought this cute little set.
Well, Dollar Tree is right next door to Pier 1 so I had to step inside to see what they had to offer. More BIRDIES! Scarey little black crows for $1 a piece, just in time for Halloween decor!
A blogger posted last year about these little buggers at the Dollar Tree but by the time I got there they were all gone. So this year, I don't feel so bad about buying Halloween stuff in Sept.
I hit a garage sale on the way out of town last wknd (actually made the hubby come to a screeching halt and back up). He gave me all of 5 minutes and I came back in 3! How do you like that! I saw this wreath from the car and nabbed it for a buck, pre-lit and still in the box. It will match my white tree that was a curbside attraction. I may even stick the little black crows in it and use it for Halloween also. What do you think?
I just want to share a few more items that I got at Salvation Army. A GORGEOUSLY soft vintage blanket in excellent condition...satin ribbon edging and lovely yellow and white flower baskets woven through it in a diamond pattern. The backside has the pattern in reverse colors.
I also got a sheet of cute vintage Christmas paper and some pink crepe paper that I will use on my Christmas projects next month.
I also got a darling vintage baby book, still in the original packaging. It is dated 1945 inside, it was never used. The cover is yellow satin with a moire shimmer to it. It says, "Baby's First Diary."
The watercolor illustrations inside are beautiful and make me dream of a by-gone era. Check out these drawings:
"Baby's Treasures, Early Days."
"Two Years Old"
"4th Birthday" & " My Favorite Songs & Stories"
"School Days" Happy Fall!
