What makes YOU happy? “Mosaic Monday”

Shopping at the White Elephant Sale in my neighborhood started my weekend off right!

I walked over to this sale, bag in hand to do some serious shopping!

Hubby carried the camera…obviously! heehee!

And I was CAUGHT with a Raggedy Annie doll…

grabbed right out from under all of the other savvy shoppers!

I also bought chickens from a lady that made these!

Aren’t they adorable?

I asked hubby to put one on top of the fridge and he ‘posed’ her!

I love your chickens. Does the lady who makes them have a website of at least a phone number. I have at least one chicken in all rooms in my house, but as soon as I saw the red one I knew I had to have one like that. I would appreciate any information you have.
Thank you, Cam

These are wonderful. I know when I go to any kind of Vintage or crafting market, I tell myself I don't need another thing. Somehow, that strategy never works. Your finds are wonderful.
