Sweet Garage Sale finds and Rustic Vignette!

I hope all you Mom's out there had a lovely day!  We had an early evening dinner with my Mom and her beau, my daughter, grand-daughter and my daughter's boyfriend.
It was very nice, a beautiful spring evening, although little Addison isn't too keen about sitting in her high chair for long, waiting for the food to arrive.
I did manage to snag a few sweet deals at a garage sale this past week.  

This may be my favorite find!  Four dinner plates, four salad plates and four bowls, in this cute blue and white tea-pot pattern!  They were made by Pier I and only paid $5 for the set!  I see a tablescape coming!

I wasn't really looking for a potty chair yet but this one was brand new looking and maybe the cutest one I have ever seen!  There is a little sensor that sings, "good job" when it gets wet and the little handle makes a real life flushing sound, hehehe!  My daughter says they are $40.00 new in the store and I snagged it for only $6!

 I also found this adorable little red table!  It will fit perfectly in my guest room or maybe outside on the porch!
Only $5..yippee!

This chair, with the flowers planted inside was a Mother's Day gift from my daughter!  I love it!

I got to see little Calista via skype!  Only two more weeks and I will get to see her in person!
She is crawling now and her Grandma thinks she is pretty special!

My window ledge vignette with the morning sun shining through.  My $1 vintage box, my .50 milk jug, the rooster, a gift from Marty and the plates on clearance from Wally world.  Oh and the book in back was a give-away gift!
Wish I had bought more of these boxes.  When I went to this   Estate sale they must have had 30 of them all priced at a buck a piece.
We are climbing into the mid-eighties today and I love it!
Time for some warm growing weather around these parts!
What do you have planned for the week ahead?

I am joining Marty @ A Stroll thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday.
Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality for Thrifty Treasures.
Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch for Met. Monday

  15. Cindy, it's just a good thing I can't go yard sale shopping with you. We'd be fighting over the same things. What an adorable set of china, and are you serious, $5!! That really is the cutest potty ever. Great little red table, which I'm sure will find many uses, and I love your Mother's Day present, especially with your cute decorated hat hanging on it. laurie
