Tooting One Horn

I don’t mean to toot my horn. Honest time…I real mean to toot my horn Pea of Pea Corner hosted a wonderful Halloween Swap and my package I sent went to Bob and Teri in Missouri Ok I bet some of you are wonder what does this lady have to toot her horn about.
I actual painted the scarecrow

I’m one like a deal Friday and Saturday I went yard selling and to one of the thrift store and got a few bargains here and there.

I found this food dehydrator at the local thrift store and it wasn’t marked and I said how much and the lady said $4.99 and I said it’s a deal. It look like it never real been used, except there is no instruction with it.
I believe you can pick a new one up at Wal-Mart for under $30.00

I went a yard sale south end of Bonners Ferry which had quite a bit of stuff and they had this little green cleaning machine which I been wanting a steam cleaner for my carpets.
But this one for smaller areas and furniture.
Well they never used it and still had all the paper work for a warranty. I ask how much they said does $20.00 sound fair and walk around a picked up quite a few more items. A couple of Christmas Presents, some movies on vhs, and cook ware.
So ask them if $30 sound fair and they took it. I paid a dollar an item except for the cleaner.

As I mention in my pass blog and that I collect giraffes and I pick this up at the thrift store plus that also where I got my food dehydrator.
At the yard sale I went to earlier I found an Robert Louis Stevens book called ”Children Garden Verse” which sometime at a later date I’ll share some of my favors of his work.

Our Kitchen Faust been leaking so we had to replace it and went in home depot to find a new one. They sure have a large assortment and one would have hard time choosing.
I actual want the one that looked like a beer tap

As of tomorrow Monday the 28th I’ll be involved with Fall y’ all give away I won’t be adding anything new to my regular blog until after the give away is done.
I’m also doing for the month of November Nablopmo and I bet if you go there main sight and put in the name of “Peppylady” I would pop up.
If you post everyday in November you have a chance to win something. So as the Fall give away is going on I’ll be posting over at nablopomo for a few days
