Wheat-Burlap & Quail

New goodies are always so much fun.  I went to lunch with a friend and we found some fabulous treasures, then a box came in the mail, plus goodwill was loaded, so wow, I had a great week.

Do you just squeal with delight when a package comes in the mail, I do, and this was such a perfect gift from one of the most precious people I know.  Just look at this pumpkin, isn't it wonderful.  Bleached burlap and look at the stem.  How gorgeous.  Of course I immediately had to create a vignette to showcase it.

 I had just found a pair of Quail at goodwill so I thought I would do something with all of my newest treasures.  The baby one is so cute - -

 And the momma too.  (I need to figure out something to replace their top feather - any ideas)  They were a great find for $2.99.

 Then Saturday a friend and I went to lunch (after a tour of her unbelievably amazing home) and then shopping at a thrift and consignment store.  I found a pair of wheat spheres.  This is the smaller one.

 This is the larger one.  I havn't seen these before, but you can see it is simply wheat stalks bundled and then sheared in the shape of a sphere.  The larger one is more open than the smaller one.  Love these.  I think these were a fabulous bargain for $5.95 and $7.95.

 I thought all three went together as a fun new vignette for the end table.

 Thank you so much Pat for the pumpkin, I absolutely love it.                                                

So, did you find any treasures lately?  I found a couple more treasures that I will share later.
