more sample sale items

The other day I realized I hadn't taken photos of all of my sample sale items from the Gift Mart. I'm sure you wanted to see everything, right? :)

The background in most of these is a little busy - sorry. I also bought boxes of Christmas cards and curtain panels to use on tablescapes. I'm sparing you those photos!!

I guess I'm obsessed right now with chandeliers - I bought this candlelier for the gazebo. If I ever talk Mark into making me a pergola, I'll probably use it there.

This is a small urn that I'll probably use as a centerpiece.

Ditto with this small basket. I have 3 other larger baskets similar to this that I love. One holds huge pinecones from Tahoe. Another is full of magazines. And the 3rd I use when the need arises. Very versatile.

I'm thinking this small sleigh will also be used as a holiday centerpiece - isn't it cute? They had a larger tin sleigh that I totally wanted to buy - but resisted. Wonder if there would be any left if I went over Monday...

Found these two copper twirlies to hang on either side of the porch doors. I'll like them better when they have a nice patina on them, but when the sun hits them it showers the living room with fun sparkles - so I'll enjoy them now too.

I think that's everything. When I can get stuff for less than half of what I'd have to pay in a store, I have a hard time stopping! Thanks for all of your nice comments about the things I showed in an earlier post!!

Very nice! The urn and the basket are my favorites. I could definitely find a place for them in my garden. ;-)

You got some very nice buys! It'll make it more fun looking forward to next spring knowing you have all those goodies to use and find homes for. Very cool!

Love it all. I can't wait to see what you do with the sled centerpiece for the holidays.

Tablescape panels....who would want to be spared from seeing those? I love everything tablescapey! :)

I love the sleigh, the pretty "twirley" things look very much like the silver one with the glass bobble you bought for me, that we have hanging on the carport. It twirls so pretty. I love the small basket, can see it filled with things to match the season sitting on the table behind the couch.

Very nice finds

What a bunch of great buys! I love the rusted look. The copper is beautiful but I can't wait to see it when it weathers. Can I come with you, please!!!
