I scored at the Garage Sales

disclaimer: I live in a small town where 65% of the population is over 65. There are a LOT of yard sales ...reasons: downsizing/death/moving/to make friends. Most garage/yard/estate sales are on Friday, I can only go on Sat.
I went over my Garage Sale Budget but I found a great find...
A beautiful CROWN, in it's own little carrying case!!!! WAY COOL. I love crowns. (right Shelly?) I often tell my girls to call me the Queen Mum, hahaha, not really. But I do love crowns and have a couple charms of crowns and an old Christmas decoration that is a crown.. and well... I just HAD to get this one yesterday. The lady said that it belonged to a friend of hers.. well I'm just going to make up the story that the wear-er was crowned Miss Lavender Patch!
Other scores were: 2 lamps for one dollar... and (I know you'll be shocked) ANOTHER crockpot, just a baby one this time, and some cool 3d pictures for 25cents a piece.

Oh YEAH, just call me the Queen of Cute.

That is to DIE FOR!!! Can't you take a Friday off sometime in the near future and take me garage sale hoppin'?????
I have to come over and check out your neck of the woods,,,and as mentioned your welcome to the "red carpet treatment" here missy!!!

Egads,,,,if it rains ANYMORE I am going to lose my PNW Native MIND! Hopefully it'll be at least DRY in Spokane next weekend for Farm Chicks, if not SUNNY!!!

How funny you are the Queen of Cute!
Wish I could look that good taking a close up of me..hahaha
Miss coming by here but wanted to check in on you.
Great bargains you managed to take away with you. Wish I lived in your area so I could go with you. If I can ever get out of this house again I will feel like a million dollar cutie
It would be great to have a crown to put in my box tomorrow to send to the winner of my giveaway but that is not something I found out at Warrenton.
Hope you entered I will be drawing in the morning
