EASTER BARGINS!

 
Just when you think your tablescape is complete,
you can come across something that just makes it perfect!
In this case, how about three little lambs and a lavender bunny!
 

It was the last little set they had and into my basket they went!
 I have been on the lookout for tiny sheep and would you believe it made my day!



As I was checking out, the nice young girl scanning my groceries,
lifted up the box and exclaimed how cute they were!
This began a conversation of Easter dinner and Easter baskets..etc.....


This little package of sheep was on clearance for $2.99!


The stars must have been in alignment, as this was also the
last lavender bunny dish they had in stock.
The lovely dish above was a gift to my father from on of his patients.
 I have so loved this heirloom for many years.
 Isn't he just perfect beside the lilacs! The bunny dish was $1.99!


When I was posting about The Swan House yesterday, I thought I might find one of their cookbooks! And lo and behold, I found one used on Amazon for $3.99! I had never ordered a "used book" from Amazon before, but it stated it was in "good condition", so I thought I might like to have a cookbook which was actually owned by someone else who enjoyed this historical tea room!


I just had a feeling........this made me so happy, yet a tad bit sad....
it had been a Mother's Day gift for someone....well, it's in good hands now!
I really kind of like the idea of used books!


I love bargain shopping!

  2. Those little sheep are really cute! But, the double bowl really caught my eye. I think it is gorgeous as I love old china. A very pretty table!

  5. The sheep are my favorites! Great finds.
    I've ordered many used books from Amazon and always been pleased. Used books make good sense to me.

  6. What a sweet collection! They are all so cute, but I think that little lavender bunny dish is my favourite. Just like you, I love used books, especially if they have a dedication inside. I like to think that they have been successfully re-homed!

  7. The lambs caught my eye right away; the builder of our home in Massachusetts (years ago) raised sheep and I have quite a fondness for them. A great display of Easter on your beautiful table, dear friend, XOXO
