You Just Never Know!

"You Just Never Know!" is the perfect title for my post today ~ for a couple of reasons.   First of all, believe it or not (not!), my card posted on Monday was selected as one of the TOP 5 Show Stoppers in Stacey's Curtain Call Color ChallengeWoo Hoo!  That's three in a row!  



please see the original post for more info on this card

I'm not even done bragging on myself yet. ; ) Wait until you see what I found when I was out junkin' with my sister Susie yesterday!    It was a beautiful day yesterday and lots of sales, so we met in town early and before we knew it, we had my VW bug full of loot!  : )   I almost forgot to tell you, our motto is:  "You Just Never Know!"    And what we mean by that is, some sales may look like a "drive by", but we have found some of our most "precious treasures" there. ; )  

Ok, ok,  I know you're all on the edge of your seat waiting to see what I found, so here it is . . .


* L00K at all the LOOT! *

* this pretty framed picture will go perfectly in my sunflower guest bedroom *

* I can't wait to sort through all these buttons! 50 cents worth!
Do you think the pretty pink vase is Fenton Glass?  I think it might be!
and the other little corked jar was just too cute to pass up for 25 cents!
You young 'uns wouldn't remember Little Lulu, but I do!
OMG, this is TOO CUTE!!!  ♥ Love it!

What do you know,  I even found more STAMPS that I didn't already have!
and Cuttlebug embossing folders too!  ♥  Make my day!
Well, I sure hope you've enjoyed my post today as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you.  : )   And, I especially want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your sweet comments on my Curtain Call Top 5 card.   Honestly, I nearly gave up on that card....and it is definitely proof that "You Just Never Know!"

Have a WONDERFUL day, my friends!  : )







Quote for Today ~
Serendipity. Look for something, find something else, and realize that what you've found is more suited to your needs than what you thought you were looking for.
