I'm home!  It is so good to be back.  Mr ALC and Charlie were glad to see me also!   I have been so busy since I returned late Thursday but I wanted to post what I found yard salen in Texas last weekend! I was so lucky to find this orphan scarecrow S & P
He was all by himself and 25 cents
Isn't he cute!! \
Another orphan S&P
This funny little guy cost 10 cents
Marked made in Japan
He makes me smile!

I also picked up 
This bowl for 25 cents
It will be great for Thanksgiving
These metal leaves were 50 cents
I am sure they will be used in a tablescape

I picked up this squirrel several times and finally bought him for 50 cents.  Not sure what he is for but I just could not leave him!
Not too bad for my last yard sales in Texas!
(well last of this trip)
I am linking up with these two parties

Why are the cutest S&P's always singles? I now have 2 Mrs. Santas... I guess women really do live longer:@)

Nice finds. Those leaves look like they will make nice napkin rings. And that squirrel will look adorable with some nuts scattered about the table as well.

I saw a four piece blow mold nativity set for the front yard at a thrift store today. It was only $8.00 and I am kicking myself for not buying it. The husband was with me and said we had no room at the inn for it, so I walked away from it. You know how it is, buy it now or it won't be there when you go back. Boo hoo!~ Ames

Linda, the great finds seem to find you! I love both of the salt shakers. That fish is just sooo cute! What pretty metal leaves. I'm wondering if that wire is supposed to bend upward to be used for a place card holder?? Thanks so much for linking to Favorite Things, and welcome home. laurie

I love that little fish shaker, how absolutely cool. Everything else of course is nice, but he makes me smile. By the way, welcome home.

Debbie said...

I am cracking up hit them up in every State you go. Love the leaf place card holders...I always see them displayed in the pottery barn catalog. Thanks for joining me:) Enjoy your Sunday.

Amanda said...

Great scores! I love your little made in japan fish!

Terry @ La Bella Vie said...

Oh girlfriend these little finds are just darling! I keep thinking I should move to the south just to join you on your treasure hunts! I love that adorable fishy!

Erin@likegrandmas said...

Great Finds Linda! I would have fought you for the squirrel. I had someone give me a broken cast iron nutcracker that was a squirrel one time, then I sold it. I kick myself every so often because of it. Love the shakers too!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Nice finds.
I did a little junkin Fri, but did not find a whole lot. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Jane said...
