Weekend Treasures!

Hello! Although I wasn't feeling up to par this weekend I did manage to make it to some sales with a dear friend and WOW I found some great deals on some treasures! I am so excited with my finds. Christmas is right around the corner and wait till you see what I found!

                                                       1st is a set of 3 nesting bowls
                                                       From Bella Casa.
                                                       I LOVE the little beaded handles and best of all
                                                       I got the whole set for $2.00!! Can't wait to use 
                                                       them for Christmas goodies!

                                                    2nd is a set of 2 red velvet pillows with
                                                    beaded trim. $1.00 each!

                                          3rd is a stunning vintage tablecloth that is 
                                          flocked and has a cute little pom pom trim.
                                          It is new in the package and I only paid $2.00 for it!
                                          Won't it match perfectly with the little red pillows?

Ah! I stopped by one of our local consignment stores
about 2 months ago and came across these beauties.
BUT- the price was $10.00 for the set of 4 and I really
didn't want to pay that much for them even though I REALLY 
wanted them. So, I stopped back in this week and there they sat in
the same spot as before just begging me to take them home however, the 
big $10.00 orange sticker was still on them so I sadly walked away and THEN
to my surprise the girl working the register walked by and said Oh! I just wanted to
let you know that the Orange stickers are 75% OFF TODAY!!! 
WHOO-HOO! I very quickly walked back over and picked them up all while trying to contain 
my excitement. So, they are now sitting in the cabinet and waiting to be on the Christmas table setting!       

Even with all these great little treasures that I found nothing compares to what I am about to show you.....
Drumroll please!
Ta Dah!! 
I just LOVE this Christmas Stand!!
First of all, I have never seen anything like it before and secondly when I seen the 2 empty shelves
I immediately thought- Oh! that would be darling with little Christmas desserts on there.
I love all the Christmas figures and I think they would really pop if they were painted, what do you think?
I was ecstatic seeing it there and thinking about what I would do with it and where I would put it at and then 
I realized------I didn't look at the price yet, hmmmm they probably want a pretty penny for it So, I walked over and looked at the tag and it said

 Are you kidding me? I said SOLD, I could certainly afford that so
I told the man I wanted it but I wanted to look around a little more and he said Oh! well just so you know if the tag doesn't say firm then it is half off.
OH JOY! I was buying the Christmas Stand for $4.00!!!!
Yes- that would be the best buy for the day!
What are your thoughts on this stand? What would you do with it? Paint it or leave it white?
You will see this again in the near future when it comes time for my Christmas blog! 

                      Thanks for visiting with me and checking out my weekend treasures!
                                                                   Have a blessed day!
