Fairies and finds

I have been flitting about lately like a fairy picking up this and that with my magic wand and I
thought  you might like to see what it found.  :)

These numbers in the original box for 70 cents. The buttons were 21 cents.

{I know I promised I would wash the window , but it has been too cold or if it has been
warm enough then I forget so please bear with me}

Loving this old sewing machine drawer that I found at the same store. {a local store that I frequent}
 It was regular $8 , but on sale for $5.68. I will use it to hold some food or pretties at the fairy party.

  Oh, did I not mention that? I am deep in the planning stages of a fairy party for my
grand girls this summer. That is  why you will see me flitting about on any given day
 collecting items that my beautiful  little fairies might need. 

Found these bottles at Home Goods for 3.99 each. Dish soap or hand soap?

{I initially thought I had purchased these at TJ Maxx, but then remembered it
was Home Goods}

Couldn't pass this up for 3.99 either...it will probably hold candles for the party.
{TJ Maxx }


Lovely Paris note card set from  TJ Maxx  again for 4.99...or maybe Marshalls? I went to
all these stores in one day and I do get kinda mixed up. lol.  I adore pretty papers
and I always have.  I actually do use them, but I have accumulated quite a stash.

Here is the beautiful box again from a local store...love it.

What fairy doesn't want to add some twinkle to her life? These boxes of silver twinkle letters and swirls
were only 1.99 each at TJ  Maxx...can you tell that I love that store?  These boxes measure 5 x 7 inches
and hold a lot of chipboard twinkle goodness. Still can't get over the price! As you can see I picked
up several.

Last , but not least I received a $5 coupon in the mail to a local gift/book store for my birthday
(coming up) for any book they had...this caught my eye and won me over.

I will be sharing more fairy goodness soon I hope. I have purchased fairy clothes, shoes, and all  kinds
of goodies for my little fairies to have a grand time. It will be under the *big top* and we will make
plenty of memories! {in my new white tent} No boys allowed that day...it will just be for my beautiful,
sweet girl fairies!!

I've been finding great treasures at some local stores where I live. It is nice when you don't have to go out of town to find things, even though road trips can be so...much fun.

hi Sandi,
I want to be a fairy at your party (in my little whiney voice) it sounds like so much fun.
You un-earthed the best 'stuff'!!!!
I love both those stores too.

I kind of got interrupted in the heart making, so that is why I haven't sent you any photos of them. I have so many half way done, but not completed. I hope you will bear with me.

And now for a little favor, does your friend in your previous post who has those awesome clips have a way I can e-mail her? I really would love to buy some of the clips from here. I have been looking everywhere for those.
sending bug hugs your way...
