Ok.. I wasn’t as successful with this week’s post, but I did manage to get a few items for $2.00. I ventured into Hwy 121 Indoor Yard Sale here in Whitmire. The lady there was very pleasant. I found a whole bunch of items in that store for $2.00 – I was like “WOW” , I could really stretch my buck here.. chuckles… But I couldn’t use a lot of the items I saw..(but, if I ever need any more glasses, I know where to go – they all were roughly $0.10-0.20 cents a piece).. These are the items I came home with. All for $2.00 — not bad – again..
Even though I’m a dog person, I couldn’t resist the little kitty cat eyes on the little planter (not to mention the price).. 🙂 Although I don’t decorate for Christmas, I do like the decorations and the colors of the ornaments. I’ll use them another way to add color around the house. I cleaned the kitty and found her a place on the windowsill for a coleus plant I’m rooting for next year..
She looks pretty cute perched on the widow with the other plants.. 🙂
As for the tree bulbs.. I like putting things inside my potted plats (rocks are always the norm) but I thought I’d give them a try in this plant.. something to hide the big roots because they’re big and round.
I added the balls for some color in the pot.. and here is what it looks like..
not bad for some color in the pot- and unlike rocks – they don’t add extra weight (because it’s very heavy – every summer it goes outside for nature to take care of it) and I get the dreaded sigh from my son when he has to lift it to take it out..
And for the crystals.. I’m going to use those on a crafts project.. Will get back to you on that note..
So you see shopping with $2.00 is not impossible.. practical but definitely not impossible..
Besides….This is getting kind of fun too!
