Mary Engelbreit Finds!

Most of you know I love Mary Engelbriet and all the bright colors. I had so much fun decorating my studio/cottage with all the items I had collected over the years.

This weekend, my sweet hubby went to some estate sales. I didn't go with him as I was trying to post things on my Etsy shoppe...I have gotten behind again. I have so much to list that I don't like to go to sales sometimes~TEMPTATION!

There was a whole collection of ME things at the sale and he offered the gal a lump sum and she went for it! Look at all the great things! I was really excited to get some things that I can use by the door of my cottage for plants! I think it will make a very cute little entrance with flowers.

There was even a bird feeder! I am going to have fun with these things.

You can see some of the price stickers. He was lucky to get all of this for  $30 dollars! I am going to redo some of my display area and the things I don't want to keep, I'll just sell. That's the fun part of Etsy and doing the shows.

I was really excited to get two more cup and saucers. I have been on the hunt as I wanted to find six. I will be having a big party next summer for my high school friends. I only need one more now.

I love this plate! Perfect for someone who sews, don't you think? This plate will make the perfect serving platter for a party.

Thanks Jimmy for thinking of me and for the great finds! I love them and it will be so fun to share the goodies with my friends.
