My thrift store finds and a giveaway

Today I decided to do my errands before the snow comes tonight. I had to make my usual stop at the thrift store...of course.. Below is a small quilt I found for 99 cents.. I love the colors in it. I stopped to show my friend Nancy who does quilting and she was as delighted as I was with my purchase.


        I found this little beaded wreathe and flower for 79cents . i brought it home and hung it on a wall in my bedroom and added the pearls to it.

  For the great-granddaughters I found two bags of Play- Doh for two dollars.    I will tuck them in a box I mail out as little Naomi is having a birthday next month..

                         The last item was a a book of full color  Angel vignettes...   There were over twenty pages of wonderful pictures.. Below is two of the pages.

                          They are on glossy paper and did not copy as well as I had thought they would.

    And so now for that giveaway I mentioned..    Some lucky person is going to receive five of these wonderful pages for making tags or decoupages.. I could not possibly use them all and I would like to share them with some lucky blogger...   I will end the drawing the 29th of February and announce the winner on the following Saturday.   Just leave a comment as what you would use them for and be a follower of mine....   that will put your name in the hat two times and for a third post about the giveaway and let me know you did.  Good Luck

     I am joining  Diann from The Thrifty Grove
 Stop by her delightful blog and see the treasures she always finds.

   Time for some camomile tea and i'm off for a good night's sleep.. I'm sure there will be snow to move in the morning.

    I would love to be entered in your giveaway!! Those are fabulous pictures! I have a small wooden stool and a serving tray that I would like to paint and add some bling to, these would be wonderful for either project I think. I am a follower via Linky.
