Angel trumpets and treasures

Saturday yard sales! Love them! Sloan went with Pam and me this morning and drove me crazy! He's a good kid, but I had to tell him more than once to "leave stuff alone and let's go!" I got a few good things today...
Five camouflage hats for Justin... 25 cents each!
 Two pair of Carhartt camouflage pants for Justin..$2 each!
 Sunflower arrangement..$1..
 Book, toy figurines, coffee mug.. 25 cents each. The letter "A"..50 cents.
 Two miniature wooden benches.. 25 cents each, wooden jewelry box..$3 and a wire lampshade frame..$1. I'm going to paint the jewelry box and use it to store crochet hooks and notions. The wire lamp shade frame is going to be a Pinterest project. Somehow I'm going to use either granny squares or doilies to cover the frame.
 "CAFE" sign..50 cents, "Desserts" sign.. $1,  iron paper towel holder ...50 cents..
 Pillow..50 cents... eight Baby Einstein..$1 each...for Della..
 Large mirror ..$15....
 Rocking horse for Della... $4.  It sings a song if you press one ear and makes clopping noise when you press the other ear!
 Look at these huge Angel Trumpets! All of these were in front of a lady's house! Beautiful!

How was your Saturday?

Well, my boys lost, so my Saturday was pretty pitiful.

I've never heard of Angel Trumpets before, but I can certainly see why they're called that.

Lots of nice stuff Charlotte - I like your idea of using the jewelry box for your crochet hooks. Have a good day. :)
