A little bit of shopping

I haven’t put much ‘fun’ things on my posts lately so this one will be just some good ole eye candy – things we bought yesterday at a show.
I went not knowing if I was going to purchase or just browse but the first three booths were overwhelming! So I bought!  Is that any surprise…(smiles)
The first thing that caught my eye was this bear – bears were in large quantity at this particular show.  I think they may be coming back popular again…I love the old antique look of his fur and he’s a tall one…about 30 inches.

And at the same booth my lovely little Pumpkin Girl.
She stands about 20 inches

Her bucket is filled with mini pumpkins

Two great Pumpkins – one Green the other Brownish
And some wonderful large dried gourds for
$2 each!
I paid as much as $9 for a dried gourd
like these last year!
This pillow is larger than it looks here…
measures 15 x 22
You can remover the cover for cleaning
and inside is a ‘feather pillow’
The color is much darker than it’s showing –
it’s more Brownish like the backside

And a cement Snowman…have wanted one of these for a couple years now.
Last season I bought a cement Bee Skep
I need to find new sticks for his arms though…
these are very badly miss matched!
He’s going to sit in the middle of our birdbath for the winter.

Two sweet aged fabric crows
I just put them in the Geraniums for showing
And some wonderful candles from ‘Renderings’
Now I thought I had the scent I had purchased from them last time…nope, bought the wrong one.
I’m hoping they will exchange these for me.  This is a great scent but the one I thought I was buying smells just like Cinnamon Buns baking.
And last…I didn’t purchase this but a friend who has some of  my products on consignment was at the show and she said she had  a surprise for  me in the car – she had purchased quite a huge  amount of  Wool on Craig’s List and gave me some. I m hoping to over dye it to take way the bright look.

I have more tidbits I could add but will leave it for another post – it will be old news by then but I do get carried away with posts! So I’ll give you a break and just leave it with my purchases.
And I also have 2 of the Americana sets left…check it out here:http://kmprimitives.blogspot.com/
