Rose Colored Glasses

Friday seems to come faster and faster these days.
And Friday means Fertilizer Friday over at Tootsie Time.

I'm showing some of my Roses.
95% of them are rescues or from my Mom's. 

Look who I found!
Didn't think any of these reseeded this year.

Yes, I know they all need to be deadheaded.
I just don't know where the time goes!

Wishing you a Rosy weekend!

Arrg Matey, There Be Treasure Here!!

I joining:
Linda at Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays

Dianne at A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words for Second Time Around Tuesday

Saturday's Treasure Hunt turned out to be great!

but at other sales too.
There was SO much to look at in many different buildings at the Estate Sale.
Very overwhelming...yippeeee! LOL
It was held by an Estate Sale Service,
so the prices were not as inexpensive as I would have liked. 
But there was still good buys to be had.

This is what I ended up comming home with...

Inspire pillow, Holiday Handkercheif,
cute litte heart shaped Pillows...   

Such a sweet Baby's Bonnet

Holiday Diecuts, old post cards (1918), old Easter Bunnies,
tiny Bottle Brush Wreaths,
Sweet Candle Sconce (I'm keeping it, love the color!)
and sweet chalkware Puppies in a Basket...this one has hooks on the bottom.

Everthing in the box was $6.00.
See the Bunny with the blue jacket above right,
this is what is has on the bottom.
Haven't seen this before.
So I actually got all these for $5.95 ;)

There were some garden statuary...
even after one couple loaded up their truck!
I walked out with these precious babies.
$10.00 each

So I spent a total of $36.00, 
Not to to bad. 

When we got back into town we headed
downtown to see if there were any Garage Sales.

Spied one, stopped and
found out she really wanted to get rid of everything!

Then on the way home we passed the Museum...
The Historical Society was having a Yard Sale in front!
