    OMG! The pink candy dish is amazing! Too bad the seller ships to the USA only, that is something I would have bought. It’s perfect. The lamp with the fiberglass shades is also very very tempting!

    Sara you have outdone yourself this week! There are so many cool things. That pink candy dish 🙂 I just saw a matching divided Lazy Susan in that same pink / black drizzle pattern at the thrift store. And that BBQ grill! Who wouldn’t love that, in those great colors. I simply cannot pick a favorite this week! Great job.

    What great finds! Plus you solved a mystery for me, in my garage sale rambles, I came across a dish-wasn’t sure what it was for. Well, looking at your chip and dip set, it has the be the bigger chip dish! Not the same pattern but the exact same shape. Now I have to start looking for the rest of the set 😉
