My Garage Sale finds

Have you been bargain hunting lately??

Look what I picked up at a saturday morning Garage sale at Vinnies. I didn't know Vinnies had garage sales?? I come across this by accident. Just in time I arrived 5 minutes before closing.....ooooweeee!

I found all this for under 8 bucks. A hp deskjet 5550 printer (great for one of the girls at Uni or another doing her senior years at high school), a blue christmas ball, a frame that fits the drawing that my daughter done for me for my last birthday & a pretty painted jar that I just thought would be perfect for my cottonbuds for my bathroom

( do you remember these from the late eighties?)

Delicious Lemon Coconut Slice

I 'm feeling pretty chuffed right now!! I just couldn't wait to get my big jar out from layby!!
I had other plans for it until I visited Cindy at
Romantic Home
I zoomed in on her kitchen & seen her big jar that looks just like mine.
She had filled it with lemons & added ribbons.

Then, I couldn't resist making some yummy lemon coconut slice.
I forgot the recipe so I found one on the web along with some other beaut recipes, head on over to for some ideas for next weeks menu planning.
