Shiny Objects...

A morning of running errands,
calls for a diversion along the way,
 a favorite thrift shop is nice...

(click photos to enlarge)

To my wondering eyes...
They were putting the Christmas goodies out!!


Dozens of shiny silver balls..


Yards of snowy white twinkling garland...


A glittery vintage candle ring...


A few of my favorite Christmas elements..
glitter, twinkles and shine!

A lot of inspiration for only $3.00!

If your looking for a bit of your own inspiration
you better get there soon,
because it is going fast!

The lady in front of me scored some major pretties,
the early bird catches the goodies :-)


Today I am joining..

Kathleen for White Wednesday
a lovely source of inspiration... stop by!

and

Thanks for visiting me today!

Hi Bella, Love the treasures you found at the thrift store...we have a thrift store in a neighboring town that I have been to a couple of times, but not lately, so perhaps the next time I am in that town I should stop and take a look to see what might be waiting there for me :)

Warmest hugs, Brnda

Lucky you...it's great when sometimes you're at the right place at the right time...great finds!

Dearest Bella,

Indeed that was JIT for you; Just In Time... to snatch these gems up.
Kind of shocking it is, on Election Day buying already Christmas decorations. As if time is not yet going fast enough?!
Glad that I finally caught up with my mail after coming home from the mountains in Tennessee. It is tough when you are behind, especially this time of the year.
Sunny greetings from Georgia,

As opposed to a sugar rush, would this have been a thrift store rush Bella? :-) Looks like some nice shiny new Christmas baubles.
Went to lunch with a friend yesterday and afterwards browsed through an antique store.
I came out empty handed but was thinking of you when I poked through an old button collection. Lacking experience, I had no idea if any of the buttons were worth anything or not, they all looked pretty ordinary to me.

Bella- Those are beautiful pieces of decorating fun! It is hard to believe that it is "that time" of year already. But, you are right, if you don't jump on it now-it will soon be gone. Good scouting job for you-good reminders for the rest of us! Hugs-Diana
