Never Miss a Neon Sign

Friday morning we got to enjoy the glorious spring weather outside at play group on a playground. I took a couple of pics with the new phone and they turned out pretty well.

After play group and lunch in the shade, I felt brave enough to drop in on a few garage sales on the way home. Everyone was in a great mood. We had a book on tape playing. Here are a few of my finds:

Our newest dress-up (.50 cents)

Ceramic rabbit head (I see a project in my future! $3.00)

Another Silver Tray ($5.00)

I'm hoping the bunny doesn't look like a piece of taxidermy when I'm done! It has a couple of holes at the top so it can be mounted to the wall. I also hope the tray cleans up well. I love the punch out detailing around the edge.

Rhoda (over at Southern Hospitality is hosting a Linky party for Thrifty Finds, so go on over and visit her and her friends!)

Today we (The Daddy) bought some wood and hardware to make cornices for the girls' bedrooms. After that we (The Daddy) picked up HJ's new mattress set for her big girl room.

Estimated move-in date: July.

This afternoon and evening we spent with friends as the guys gorged themselves watching the NFL draft and the girls watched after the little ones. Right now I'm waiting on The Daddy to get home, but I have a feeling I'll be asleep before the garage door opens.

That little dress is gorgeous and I think you'll find the other "treasures" are well worth the price...thanks for sharing

Thanks for stopping by to visit me!

Are you going to mount the rabbit head on the tray, then hang it up? LOL!! Both are really nice, love them!

That little dress is just too cute!

Great finds! I read your comments on the bunny head before the picture loaded and it made me giggle out loud when I saw it. Cute!
