I SCored BIG Today!!!

Yes, I did!! I scored big today!!!
First, want to to show you the wonderful goodies I got in the mail!!
I won these in a giveaway at Bird in the Hand Primitives .
THANK YOU SO MUCH ROBIN!!!! I love everything!!
That Santa is just the coolest!! My daughter #2 (18 y/o) said, "Hey cool Santa, he has a snowman voodoo stick!" lol
I know that's not what it really is but hey, it's cool to her too. She wanted to put him in her room. Um, NOT........
The candy cames are so soft and full!!! I just love them!! The ornies are going on my tree as soon as I am done with this post. :)

Next is the ornie I received from Hazelruthe at the Prim & Rustic ornie swap (Delphi forums).
It is soo pretty and vintage too. I had just told my sister last night that next year I want to do a mixed media or vintage ornie tree.This will be perfect!

I think I will start looking for a white tree this summer.:)

I stopped by Dollar General to pick up a few things and found these. They are the reed diffusers. DG has them on clearance for $1.75 each!! I couldnt pass them up. The scents available at my local store were Pumpkin pie and Apple cider. I figure they will make a great little gift for someone. I plan on taking them out of this box and putting them in a cute gift bag.

Last but not least, I stopped at the thrift store. I am so glad i did!!
These are the goodies I got:

picnic basket was $1.99
blue plastic cookie plate w/ snowflakes 19 cents ( I am filling it with cookies for the neighbors across the street)

snowman mug w/matching spoon 49 cents
small brown crock 49 cents
vintage striped pitcher 99 cents
new flurryville ornament "mother & child" 99 cents
snowman paper mache box 39 cents
rusty star pip berries( behind the pitcher) 29 cents
german twig tree with pip berries $1.49
