Purchases

Look at these adorable little apothecary jars! I bought them at an antique shop in our town--I was shocked at how inexpensive they were since most things there were quite overpriced. With tax I paid $9.80 for all three of them! They are so cute, too!

I also picked up some items at Rite Aid. Usually I think of Rite Aid as the most overpriced drugstore on the planet, but this time I was lucky and found some good sale items.
These barn stars were tagged at $9.99 but were on summer clearance for $2.49! What a steal! I bought them thinking that I would repaint them...but the patriotic coloring is cute too for 4th of July decor. I'm not sure what I'll do with them yet, but couldn't pass them up at that price!
Look at these cute little decorations! The little wood pumpkins were on sale for 99 cents (usually $1.99) and the ceramic gourds were $1.24 each (usually $2.49). Very cute and I love the colors of the ceramic gourds. They also had some twig pumpkins on sale, but I already have some of those. Still, there were some good deals on cute decorations...and some good deals on ultra-tacky decorations! Take your pick!

(As an aside, I tried using Photobucket again to upload pictures...but they come out HUGE on my blog! Help! I had to delete them and upload via Blogger.)
