Gifts and Garage Sale

I received a gift yesterday.  I don't know from who...except it is obviously someone who reads my blog and knows my son.  So thank you.  I was tickled when I saw the bee S&P.  I had been looking for a set.

Isn't he cute?
I added it to my Bee display on the counter in the kitchen...

I went garage sale-ing Friday.  Found this trim for 50 cents.  Hey Marty...working on doing that ottoman!!

All this lace was $1.00.  Aren't you proud of me Karen??

This was also in the gift bag.  Isn't this the most truest saying.  I am doing my best to live by this!! 
How about you??

Ceekay, I love your little bee gifts! What a bargain for all that trim and lace!! Nice finds!

Hi Ceekay, I LOVE the lace you got and can't get over it being just a dollar! I've been looking online for some vintage lace pieces but they are nowhere near that good of a deal!
Your bee things are too cute!

Have a wonderful weekend,

How fun to receive an anonymous gift in the mail. Those S & P's sure are cute. In fact, your whole display is cute.
I think you do set a good example for cherishing each day.

Ahh this whole bee vignette is so cute. You know I love bees too!

What a lovely gift, Ceekay! You found some great stuff, too. Love the lace and trim. One year I got rid of a whole bunch of trim at a yard sale. I just had so much of it and it was not being used.
