Fishing for treasures!

Boy, this Saturday was a busy one! I went yard saling with the girls, shopped at Hobby Lobby and Justin took the boys fishing! First Saturday to have to wear long pants and a light jacket! I soon took the jacket off, though! I didn't get that much but I had a great time.
A butterfly plaque for Holly...

A Grizzly Bear crossing sign for Justin...
Five of the 101 Dalmations....
A plastic cow....
Three bases for the boys to play baseball....
A toy Yorkie and carrier for Olivia...
Olivia has started dance classes so when I found this pin and earrings for $1, I got them for her....
A 'free' brandy snifter, Santa Claus, butterfly scarf and a plastic violin....
A bag of wire ribbon for $1.. I'm going to use this to wrap the many gift boxes that I have been collecting for Christmas...
All of these magazines were "free"! There are about 50 or more crochet and needlework magazines dating from 1976 to 1996!
And the best deal of the day...........an Autumn Leaf coffeepot for $2 !!! The spout has a small chip but who cares?
After the girls went home, I went to Hobby Lobby where I know I spent two hours just looking and wishing! I went specifically to try to find a stamp and cardstock to make gift tags. I haven't tried scrapbooking yet, but all of the lucious papers have got me thinking that I just might. I have done some digital scrapbooking but not the paper kind.
Justin took the boys fishing at Lake Wylie. They came home with three catfish, which Justin cleaned and they ate!

The date is incorrect on Justin's camera!



Didn't get a picture of the fish after they were cooked because the boys were starved! :)
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Linking up with Debbie at Garage Salen Partay!

Hi Charlotte!!~ Nice to see you. Loved the fishing day pictures...my youngest loves to fish and would love to catch one that big! Thanks for joining me this week. THe dalmations were just too cute...great tea pot too.
You asked me about the glaze. Soooo easy....just paint your primary color, let it dry, then take the glaze and brush on, and wipe...it really adds a nice antique look. There are several options of glaze color at Lowes, Valspar...and a little goes a long way. Have a great day! Debbie
