Saturday Shopping Part Two

Here are some more pictures of my great finds last Saturday, just like I promised earlier in the week.
These are things I found while shopping the occasional sales in Buffalo, MN.

 I found this wooden tray at This N That. Craig helped me cut a thick plastic placemat (from Target last year) to fit inside the tray and I added felt pads to the bottom so it doesn't scratch the coffee table. Right now it's on this table in our family room at home - but eventually I'd like to find a big ottomon for either the living room here or the family room at the cabin - and this tray would be perfect on an ottomon.

 I'm not sure where I'm going to display this white and black pitcher, but I fell in love with it (at the store called Now And Again) and had to get it.
I'll find a place for it!!
 Two candlesticks and a vase. Of course, now that I'm done making valentine mailboxes , I find a black candlestick for $2. I do have a couple of unfinished mailboxes...which I may decorate for other seasons, so both of these candlesticks would make perfect mailbox bases. And the vase in the middle came decorated with wire, ribbon and beads - and will be a birthday present for a friend at work. I know the vase came from This N That, and the black candlestick came from Now And Again. I found the other candlestick at Goodwill.

I have plans for this picture stand - which include paint. It might end up on the wall in the kitchen with a cute folder in it for the mail. There's a new store in Buffalo called Treasures on 1st (I think).

This is a stand for hanging an ornament, and the little cup is glued to the saucer. So now I just have to figure out how to hang the cup and saucer on the stand so the cup doesn't tip.

It took me awhile to figure out the tray in the first picture, but I got it now. I love it. What a great idea.

Is that sheet music on the cup and saucer? If so, it should be a Christmas present for you-know-who, M :)

Those are music notes, but the cup and saucer are joined, and are only thimble-sized.
