A little more Fall at my home.
Found this pretty at Hobby Lobby while picking up some of Alex's party supplies.This is a few snacks I had for Alex and his friends Friday night after they went to Wasabi's to eat. Can you believe these kids wanted to watch the debate Friday night??? Well, they did!! sorry the picture is blurry! I didn't know it was blurry till I posted it.
Saturday~ there was a neighbor hood sale, just down the road....so you do know I had to go! Here's the Loot I brought back. That denim jacket is Ralph Lauren Polo...got it for $3...fits hubby perfect! Magazines was .5 each. The bird cage was 3.00. The black sweater was 3.00 and the scarf was .25. Oh, and the Arbonne was a Deal too!!!!

Beautiful lamp shades was $.50 each. I have already put 6 of them on the bedroom chandi.
The woodsy stick ball thingy was FREE. The Ahava cream was $.50 and brand new. The candle was $.25, The drape rings was $.25 each and the picture frame was $1. These are doo dads I found to make tassels with......NOW, that brings me to.....The Tassels.....well, I am trying to start an Etsy shop for my tassels....I am having a headache of a time with loading the pictures on Etsy....but when I get it going I will sure post about it. Below are a few of the tassels I have made. The more I make the more I love them! I am really enjoying them. I have been ask to do a show in Nov. I'm just not sure I can have enough made up by then and especially if I list any on Etsy...I will keep you posted!

Thanks everybody for coming by! I apprecitate every visit and comment! I am going to save my fall recipes for Jan's Tea Party next week. They are perfect recipes for Tea Parties or any kind of party. Hope you all have a great week!!
Blessings to you all, Nancy

I love your tassels, Nancy!!!

Alex and his friends certainly must have had a wonderful time...with all the goodies you made for them!!!

Thanks so much for the lovely award. I will post about it later tonite...or tomorrow. I'm just now starting to make the rounds after the Dentist visit today. My mouth is sore...and I'm tired (didn't sleep well lastnight, thinking about all the Dentist was going to do today).


Gone said...

ps....forgot to say...I love all of the "stuff" you found at the sale this past weekend!!!

Darlene said...

SQUEAL!!!!!! Thank you so much for the award!! I am quite honored that you picked me out of all of those fabulous blogs out there....guess what I ABSOLUTELY LOVE your blog too!!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE (I think I am going for a record today saying LOVE) all of your decorations and WOW what a yard sale!! FABULOUS finds!!!

It is funny cause the instant I saw those white finial things I thought those would make great tassels and what do you say...for tassels!

I am *hearting* all of those tassels you are showing....I know tease us so we MUST buy one!

Thanks again for the award.

Becky said...

Luv your tassels, they are soooo cute!! Your halloween decorations look great too! You really found some nice treasures this weekend too! Lucky you.

nikkicrumpet said...

The tassels are WONDERFUL!!! How talented you are!!! And I'm shocked the kids wanted to watch the debate...maybe there is hope for our future after all!

Sue said...

I LOVE YOUR TASSELS!!! The rooster is my favorite. I'll be watching for when you get your store opened.

Robin Beck said...

Your tassels are lovely-I love toile and gingham ribbon and fabric!

Tracey said...

WOW, Nancy!! You made out great at the yard sale, lots of great finds!!
Glad your son and friends had fun! I can't believe they wanted to watch the debate! But, it is refreshing that they are interested. I don't think I could get my son to watch (well maybe if I paid him....LOL)
Love your tassels! Can't wait until you have them for sale....ohhh, I'm thinking maybe I could get you to make me a gator tassel or a kitty tassel...the possibilities are endless!
Take care, Tracey

A Hint of Home said...

Congratulations on your award and thank you for passing it on to me. I am so honored you thought of me.
Your decorations are wonderful. I love the tassels you are making. I wish you many sales.
It looks like the party was a success. It's good to see kids interested in their country and what's going on in politics.

Hi Nancy, Congrats on your awards! You certainly deserve them! :)

Your tassels are so pretty! You should really well selling them! And you found some really great things at the yard sale! Ashley had a sleepover at the lake, so I missed the yard sales Saturday! ...love the shades!

Suzann said...

I am adoring your fall decorations!
Looks like a fun party too. My kids are very interested in the election and the debates too - I think it's awesome, especially because at their age (heck at 20) I wasn't interested in the least.
It looks like you were able to pick up some great deals at the sale too. Those shades are just awesome.

Jessica said...

Looks like you had a great party! Your decor was FAB! I thought it was funny that my daughter wanted to watch the debate, too. But, she informed me that she will be voting in the next election since she is just 17 now. I love all your new little treasures, the lamp shades are adorable. Now, lets talk about those tassles, I really love the one with the green ( apple? ) please put me on the list I would love to purchase one ( or ten....lol. )

Hugs~ J.

Pamela said...

The tassels are gorgeous! You are so very, very talented.

Too busy with the animals to have time to do any fall decorating (figure I'm doing good if I get the kitchen floor swept) so I live vicariously through your decorations. Thank you!

Ashlie said...

Howdy! I'm visiting from Darlene's blog and I'm so glad I stopped by! Your blog is so cute! And I was excited to find a fellow Tennessean...actually we live in Louisiana, but we're from TN! Can't wait to get back home in a few years!

You really racked up at the yard sale! I love everything, especially the little lamp shades! Those are so expensive at the store. And the tassel stuff and birdcage are sweet too. Do you use Arbonne? I just had a party in Aug to help out a friend's sister who sells it. I bought some lotion and vitamin C serum...love them so far! Stop by my blog if you have a minute. I'd love to "see" you there! :)

southerninspiration said...

I just found your blog today, too....and girl, you DID good at the sale!! Whoa!!! The Arbonne is a steal, I am sure, as well as the rest! That might make history as the best sale EVAH!!!

Lawsy Mercy said...

Nancy - Thanks for the sweet note. I am here but have been under the weather. I love your fall decorations and your birthday party munchies and decorations! I am tickled with your yard sale finds! I love Arbonne and am so jealous that you found some at a yardsale!

You are an inspiration and I would love to get together someday.



Cathy Cobblestone said...
