What I did this Saturday...

I didn't have much time this Saturday as I went out on my treasure hunt. It was a late start too! My hopes were not high...truly they were not. Perhaps I would find something that someone had just overlooked...but I couldn't take the time to scrounge around. I needed to fulfill my objective and bag the game, so to speak.

To my delight I came across several treasures to share with my pink friends. But I cannot show all of them to you!!! If I did, where would be the mystique, the surprise?! So I have selected just a little taste of what I scored this Saturday.
First offering for Christmas in July...I just have to share this one. It is by far my favorite thing today because of the wonderful memories I associate with it. I found this beautiful string of vintage Christmas lights featuring the likes of old Father Christmas himself, Santa Claus. Are they not the coolest vintage kitschy lights you have seen?!

Next up...this sweet little rose cup that I will be offering this Friday for our next themed event.

Well...that's all I am showing you today...but here is a hint: YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS THIS FRIDAY...because there is more in store!!!

Ohh it looks like you have some great surprises in store! I love the Santa lights. Jim has really been pushing me to do a vintage tree for Christmas. I might just need to think about it!
Thanks for sharing your great finds.
