Open House Goodies!

Good morning!  I hope everyone had a great weekend and is off to a good start this week.  I was able to go to two open houses and I'm hoping to go to some more prim stores later this week or next.  As many of you know from previous posts I live near Warm Glow candles.  They had their annual tent sale and I found a few things.  Most of their things were 20% off or more.   I got a yellow, pussy willow candle ring like the one I gave away too.

My husband made holder for me years ago when I saw one in a store.  It's been a long time since it's has a long loaf style candle in it but I found this in the clearance section. 

It's snickerdoodle, and it smells yummy!

I also bought some little pie dishes, I'll show you those later. 

I found these hankerchiefs at a garage sale.  They were just too beautiful to pass up. They belonged to the man's mother.  When I brought them home I could still smell her perfume on them.  It made me a little sad and miss my own mom.  Since it's almost mother's day those of you that are lucky enough should go call your mom or give her a great big hug.

I was thinking I might make a table runner out of them and stitch them together.  I might tuck them in here and there.  I might just give them away for presents....not sure yet.

I found these at a little store called G & G crafts.  It's the only little store I close by me that carries some primitive things.  She had a spring open house and I took advantage of clearance items and got the candle for 20 % off.  It smells like apple pie.  The State Fair one seems to be hard to find.  It's a McCall's candle. I love the way the little pillows had red, white and blue in them.

Hope you have a great day!



  1. Hi Carey,
    Warm Glow and Mccalls are two of my favorite candles. I used to sell both in my store. What a great deal finding them on sale. Luv your handkerchief finds. They would make a cute table runner. TFS! Have a great day:)

  2. I love the hankies you bought. I have several from both my grandmothers and I treasure them so. I think making a table runner out of the red hankies would be fabulous. Wouldn't that look so pretty for Valentines Day or even Christmas. Enjoy your day.

  3. What great candles! Makes me want to go light mine!
    Love your hankies!

  4. I love those hankies, I bought a little
    dresser box of them from a friend, once
    and I believe I still have them, somewhere!
    I am with you, I sure miss my mom, makes
    me sad when Mother's Day comes around,
    plus I don't get to see my only child, he
    lives in Indiana. Just try to remember the
    good times with her, and have a great day!
    That candle is awesome, and snickerdoodle
    smells so good!

  5. I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog...I think we might have been seperated at birth! LOL

    Love the little pillows you picked up.... those are so precious,but then again, I'm a sucker for that stuff anyway!

  6. I love McCall candles..The hankies are adorable..A suggestion in addition to the table runner idea why not make an apron,from the hankies,for a doll you have..Have a great week..

  7. Hi Carey!....I just wanted to pop in to say thank you for visiting my blog!!....and oooo I am a candle-aholic and love those Warm Glow candles!....I'll bet that Snickerdoodle loaf smells amazing!!
