Saving up nuts for Winter

Mid last week we had our first big snow fall. I opened the door to let the dog out at around 2 a.m. and this is what greeted me.
*Snowy Berries*
By Saturday the snow had melted but that didn't mean it wasn't chilly. Here I am in the Salvation Army parking lot. I didn't find alot on this particular visit.
I seen a Santa head blo mold and I wanted it BAD! And the Mr. said NO! and I was MAD!
(But I listened)
@#&%  WHY did I do that??
I kicked myself hours later when the store was closed and I looked them up on E-bay. So I had planned in my mind I would go back on the next opening morning. I knew there was a 85% chance Santa head would be gone. "He was" *Uhggg*
To whoever bought him.....
"If I wasn't Married your Santa head would have been mine"
Jus sayin...
Speaking of Santa look who I met on that visit.

A Jolly dancing Santa in the Salvation Army front window. I thought it was marvelous when I read Curtise's post about her weekend. She met Santa too.
And was also rocking the faux fur!
*Woo woo*

 *Headed to another thrift store*
I did some retail shopping here is four new things I have purchased.

 The red one is mine the blue is for Mr. Coco
I found them at Homesense for $3.99 each
They also say "Keep Calm and carry on in the inside rim"
 Apparently I am nuts about nuts! *Seriously* I could not pass up these Acorn statues or finials whatever you want to call them.
I paid only $4 for the large one and $3 for the smaller.  The original prices were something like $22 and $18
(This is why it's always a smashing idea to hover around the clearance section)
P.s. I picked up another owl last night in blue for $2
Now the orange owl is not lonely!
The Weather is calling for snow on Friday. Looks like I will be bundled up again for the weekend.
Linking up with Lakota's 'Ta-dah! Tuesday'

My Pretty Woman Boots!

 "'Cause I need you, I'll treat you right
Come with me baby, be mine tonight"
The Boots were thrifted in the early spring of this year. When I found them it was too warm to REALLY enjoy them. I got them for $15
As soon as I seen them I thought of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman
"I don't know if that's a good thing or not"
 Pretty woman, walking down the street
Pretty woman, the kind I like to meet
 Pretty woman
I don't believe you, you're not the truth
No one could look as good as you
NO!! I am not hooking at a restaurant. *HAH*
That's partly because the restaurant is no longer open and partly because I am not in that industry.
One of my favorite stores is closing down. It's only open for 4 more days.
I am sure you have heard me talk about Zellers before. More than half of the store is empty. (As you can see behind me.) In front of me is where the remaining merchandise is.
I just started laughing looking at this picture. It looks like I am having a heartfelt moment with these pickles. I can assure you I am not. I was just telling them how much I will miss shopping at Zellers.
My Pretty Woman boots were being stored in the storage room. The Mr. was at work "He is usually my spider checker" But he wasn't home... So once I got the boots out I grabbed a flashlight and peered WAY down to the bottom.
 The vintage skirt was a $1 thrift store purchase. I was so caught up in dollar tag day I did not realize the previous owner CHOPPED off the bottom. (I suppose it used to be a maxi) They never hemmed it up. I wore it anyways. I am thinking of hemming it. But then it might look to short?!
I am totally not used to high waisted apparel. I felt like this skirt was under my uhmm Ta Ta's
*Totally sucking in btw!*
 Fedora (Perfect for hiding the unpainted barn)
Went out for Dinner
 A drug bust was not happening inside my favorite Japanese Restaurant. But if my eyes get any wider they will fall out of my head.
Had to make a exchange on my new Winter boots as one had a flaw.
(I will admit to have TOTALLY SPLURGED on these)
But I live in Canada and they were green.
That's two good reasons why I should not feel bad.
The last time I bought new Winter boots was like 5 or 6 years ago and the darn things always gave me blisters on the back of my ankles.
I am on the search for a new winter coat. I really liked this one but the arms were too skinny for my liking. I would not even have been able to wear a sweater in the darn thing. So the search continues.
I have many vintage faux fur coats that I cannot wait to wear. But I am wanting a casual coat for the occasions when I am in jeans and a tee or work days. Also my job entails cleaning and I couldn't imagine showing up all glammed up in my leopard faux fur. *hahaa*
