Friday and Saturday Finds

A week ago Friday I went to my hairdresser’s and across the street is a consignment shop with some pretty high
end things inside.
I try and pop in there once a month on the same day as my hair appointment, I love looking at all the “stuff” for
sale there, furniture, linen, pictures, mirrors, centerpieces, dishes and other things all in good condition and marked for sale.
That day I found a brass candlestick and on the bottom was the mark of the name Party Lite! The candle was
included and I paid $3.00 for it, I know I got a good deal on it because I’ve been to a few Party Lite parties
and their prices are really up there but I must say good quality. I knew it would look good with my other candlesticks.
Here are five of them grouped together on my coffee table.

I also found this Italian made accent mirror that is hand carved for $6.00. It goes well with my
picture gallery wall in the diningroom.

The following Saturday I stopped in a thrift store called Hidden Treasures, that I had never been to before a really nice one,
everything all separated nicely and marked, it makes shopping so much easier doesn’t it when it’s taken
care of that way?
The Party Lite one is in the middle with the candle and the two I found at the thrift store are on each side of it.
The one on the left is brass and copper and heavy the other one on the right is all brass and both were marked
$2.00 a piece but it was 50% off everything in the store that day so I got them $2.00 for both. I love getting
deals like that sometimes!

I also found some black covered books that were $1.00 a piece but since it was 50% off  I got them for .50
a piece!

That’s it, not much I know but I’ve been just enjoying being outdoors again, planting flowers in pots and my
flower boxes! I do the flower boxes different every year, last year was purple petunias this year a mixture
of everything, I seem to like that the best!

Love you candles all grouped together. It is always fun to find something to add to a mix you already have. Cute little mirror, too. That spot was just made for it! xo Diana
