December Decor Discoveries

Yesterday, the Discovery Shop was having a 25% off sale on everything in the shop. Since we were going to the farm store in Moneta (where I bought a really good manure fork), we'd pass right by Discovery. Naturally, we stopped.

Over a week ago, I'd looked at this wooden folk-artsy cat plaque, but at $7, it was a bit more than I wanted to spend.

 I'm glad I waited for the sale. They also had another wooden folk-arts piece—and it was two sided:

The original price was $5, but with 25% off I decided I wanted it. I like folk art—here's a display of some (purchased at Goodwill or Discovery) in my kitchen:

In the 25¢ bin at Discovery, I found a little wooden cat. For 19¢, how could I resist? He looks so cute beside a mouse I bought a while back.

 On the way home from the farm store, we passed Goodwill. Of course I found a few things I wanted. Like this little tiny tea set:

For some reason, the pieces were individually priced, so the whole set  cost $2.25. A splurge for me.

The planters were $1 each. That's reasonable. I especially like the one that looks like a Western saddle. I think Jim-Bob like the other one better, though.

I didn't need any of this stuff. But the price was right. . . .
