A Golden day

My day was filled with gold. The color gold that is. First I am going to give you a sneak peek of my rug. This doesn't show the true mustard color. I am really glad I added this color it makes a difference.
 Then off to the dump for work in the a.m.  I found a whole bag of fall decorations. There are two of these wreaths. I am going to change the bow. cute huh.
 There was a pile of pumpkins 5 small and 5 large. Do you see the string of little fall gourds?
 And two of the cute little pots. all have gold. Now I would like to clear something up about the dump. There is a space where people leave things they think someone else might want. No dumpster diving involved. although I am not above a dumpster dive for something really good.
 Then I went to one of my favorite thrift stores. I found these two pieces of pottery. The dream jar, do you see the little name of the potter on the bottom? "Dave" that is my husband's name. I am going to fill it full of quarters and give it to him for Christmas. He likes to shot pool and is always looking for quarters.The other piece is a garlic jar. I love the blue so it's a keeper.
 I got this cookbook it really made me laugh. I like the soprano's even thought I haven't seen that many of the episodes. How would you like to sit at that table! The last chapter is called the final celebration,what food to make for a funeral. And they ask the group what they want on their tombstone. Paulie Walnuts:" He was nice to his mother and always well groomed."  So funny.
Today the weather was wonderful. I was able to work in the yard a bit.I emptied up my large pots and put them away for the winter. I want to thank all of you for your wonderful comments you know I love them. I also have a new follower welcome! I am off to a conference all day tomorrow ZZZZZZZ. Have a great weekend.

I know exactly what you mean about the dump. My husband is a policeman in a very affluent town. They call that area of their dump "The Transfer Station." There have been rugs, bikes, lamps, grills you name it and all of it in pristine condition. Have fun at your conference.

I'd like more than a sneak peak of your rug!
I'm glad you had good weather today. We had that yesterday but not today. I am so not ready for winter. I really should be living somewhere much further south!
Pug hugs : )

I want to go to your dump! Love the rug! Thank you for your comments, but I had a problem and had to delete the post and repost it, unfortunately your comments were deleted along with it :-(

You found some cool things. I found the same kind of garland. I was thinking of un-stringing them. Are you going to hang yours up somewhere? I wasn't sure where to hand them but I thought I could put them in bowls and old muffin tins around the house. I better get on it. It is going to be Christmas before I know it. lol. Have a good weekend. Love to see more of the rug. Looks great.

Lovely sneak peek of your rug. I so wish we lived close so I could learn how to make one of these too. It is going to be wonderful.
Wow what a neat place to be able to go to and find goodies such as yours. You did good my friend.
Thought of you this morning wondering what the weather is like where you are. It is 56 now but 40 when I woke up which is cold for us. hahaha
Today will be nice around 75 so I need to catch up outside things instead of inside.
Just wanted to say hello and to thank you for your sweet comments
Love

Hi. Thanks for visiting and following my blog. We were in New Hampshire a few weeks ago (Hancock), and we loved it. I'm still posting pics of our trip. We loved New England! I would love to see pics of your saltbox.
The jar for your hubby is a great idea!
