Will you be mine?

I wanted to share with ya'll a yummy box that I saw out antiquing/junking in Jefferson, TX.
I wanted $10 worth of these!!  They were awesome!  I totally forgot to take more shots because this guy was the topic of the hour..

He was only $100, Nutcracker Humungo!!  That is a lot of $$ but he could fetch like $500 around here.  I've never seen anything like him at the door of any neighbors so I wish I could have strapped him on the roof of our car for the 5 hour drive back home.  But, alas...I didn't have $100 to spend.  I didn't NEED any more Christmas decor either. 
(Standing in the store, that Tiki didn't bother me so much.  Yikes!)
That Nutcracker was standing right there at the entrance of the antique mall...right there where I was sorting thru Valentines and olden post cards at the desk while my buddy chatted with the owner. 

We went back 2 days in a row and I STILL forgot to get my Valentines.  I know... how does that happen?  But the owner had put back all the postcards and valentines that I had hand selected and put in a pile the 1st day!  I thought they'd hold them but they must have gotten upset that I didn't go ahead and purchase the 1st time. lol  I remembered some of the post cards but they put the Val's back way in the back of the room and I forgot them.  So, I only spent $5 in here.  
Big OOPS, forgot my Valentines!

Happy Rednesday



  1. $1 apiece is a great deal on valentines. I hate when I set something down and leave without it! And my brother-in-law has a giant nutcracker on each side of his door. He doesn't decorate alot for Christmas, just the tree and those guys, and they really make a big impact!

  2. Go back again, Denise Marie. You want to stay on the good side of a store like that!

    Happy Blue Monday.

  3. I think you need to go get your Valentines! A girl can't have too many! Particularly a shopper girl or in my case a magpie girl. ;-)

    Happy Blue Monday...


    Sheila :-)

  4. Happy Blue Monday. I can see you were torn about what to buy. Those Valentine's cards were a good deal ;-)

  5. Let us know if you go back...lol...It sounds like a great store but I'd have to hide that Nutcracker from Don- he'd say"where you gonna put that thing"? Loved your pictures.

  6. Denise What a great find!! I love old valentines. They don't make pretty Valentines anymore.

  7. Oh, yes...GO BACK and get them..:))

  8. Oh I love those Valentines! They bring back so many memories! Definitely go get them! I hope you are having a good week!...hugs...Debbie


Be blessed! You make my life more full of JOY!
