Look what I found...

 So I was a little disappointed by the "Super Moon" here...I thought it would be so much bigger and brighter...I mean after all the hype and everything...I took this picture the night before...I thought it was prettier...almost like a Harvest Moon...only smaller...oh well...
 Don and I hit a few yard sales, a church rummage sale and the Good Will this weekend...my kind of fun! I wanted to make some more of these succulent designs...they are so much fun. I have quite a few succulents having babies...so they need new homes and what's better than some cute containers...and a bird or two!

 I'm not sure how this one will look because it's sort of see through...but for 50 cents....how could I go wrong!
 This one was just 25 cents...very dirty too...it cleaned up nicely...it's a little measuring cup...I think it will do nicely!
 This cup and saucer aren't really a set...but for 75 cents I couldn't pass it up...it will be very nice with a succulent too!
 This little pitcher was 50 cents and the finish is so pretty...perfect!
 I got some wool jackets too...they're all washed and ready to be taken apart...the blue one looks gray here...but it's really a very pretty shade of blue...perfect for birds...and a size 20W...perfect!! All of the jackets are a size 14 and above...I hit the jackpot!!
 I also got this little pot...polka dots are my favorite...I use them in so many of my bags... polka dots just scream FUN to me...I couldn't pass this up...it was $2 at Good Will...
I transplanted some violas ...and a little gnome...oh gnomes are another favorite of mine...you can tell what a serious person I am right now...can't you!!I got 3 of these little guys at Target...they are metal and all just as cute as the next!
Now I just have to plant my baby succulents in their new containers...I plan on doing that tomorrow...right now I am supposed to be finishing bags...I have a few custom orders I've been working on...so I better get off the computer and get back to work...not that I consider sewing work...it's more like playing with fabric...
Until next time...enjoy your day!!!
