Portable Valentine's Light

Janice, Suzette, and I went all around this past week end... we didn't find as much as we usually do, but I got this portable candle holder, you know it has wheels! The lady in the junk store almost seemed ashamed when she quoted the price of one dollar to me, kinda' like she thought she was cheating me! Look at the wonderful rusty, crusty, piece ah junk! I think Janice thought I was a little weird to be so thrilled! The great beveled mirror underneath was in the house when we moved in. The newspaper is showing through the back. It is really heavy-




A red candle for Valentine's Day!!!

Rusty, Crusty, Wheel...






I picked up a bunch of these cups at a great buy, 25 cents each, from a party store! It was after Valentine's Day and I used them for my son, Jeremy's rehearsal dinner, February, 4 years ago! They are expecting their first child any day!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Oops! I just deleted my above post! I thought you won the magazine from Margo. But, I was wrong... you won from The Farmer's Wife! I knew I remembered you winning something from someone! Anyway, no worries on getting the snowflake out, there's plenty of time!
Have a good day!
