Gues what I FOUND?

Ok, all you enablers, I just had to tell you, I envied all your gorgous halloween decorating, and remember, I told you that I intended to have some by next fall? Well, my DH is going to be away for about 3 weeks, and so tonight I told him I wanted to take him out to his Fav resturant to eat. (Remember, it is right across the street from my fav GW) Of course I just had to look and see if there were any bargins. Weeeeel< guess what I found--A large lighted haunted house that someone had painted in cermaics for $3.50, a lighted large Jack-o-lantern, for $3.50 and a orange 2 pc glass pumpkin for $2.50. Now if I can just store them some place where I won't forget where I put them until next fall. I also heard from the GW store manager that they were grading out a site to build a GW in my town. Talk about excited! DH is in trouble now when they get it finished, I may have to shorten my grocery list to the point I have to go to town every day for something. Janet

LOL Janet >> You're one 'smart cookie' picking out DH's favorite eatery right by YOUR favorite shopping spot!
I guess you picked the right night to go too.. seems your Good Deed to DH paid off with a Good Deed for you, with all the great Halloween stuff you found.
Now you've got to find out how to post those pics so we can see them. Sounds like you got some really neat things. As far as forgetting that you bought them...I was thinking of an idea for about taking next year's calendar, and putting a sticky note on that month, with a 'reminder' written on it.
Now with a GW being built'd better plan 'very thrifty' meals...cause I think I know where you're grocery money will be spent!! lol Lucky You..and yes Poor DH.

Good for you, janet! Sounds like you got some real winners for Halloween! Nice of you to take DH to lunch, too! Need help with posting pics...can try & help if you want. Jeanne S.

RE: Gues what I FOUND?

ohhhh, I definitely want to see the large haunted house you found! How 'convenient', LOL, your DH's favorite restaurant is right across from GW. You got some neat things, now just don't LOSE them like I did that darn pair of Pheasants for a while. I actually came across my list the other day telling me where they were stored! A bit late since I finally had found them. But there is definitely a downside to buying stuff that doesn't get stored WITH the right things. My pheasants were in with St Paddy's!

I hope they hurry up and get the GW built in your town.
That will be so much fun for you.
hugs, Karen

RE: Gues what I FOUND?

Jane, that is a terrific idea to write on next year's calendar--at least I wouldn't misplace that--hopefully! ;o)

Janet, those all sound like really neat finds. Gosh, I thought GW's always went into already built, empty buildings! We must be buying lots for them to be able to afford to build! Oh well, lucky news for you. Better stock up on groceries now--cause you won't have much grocery money later! LOL


RE: Gues what I FOUND?

Janet, you really do need to start posting pictures to share with us. You fit in so well here and we love to see what you find. So happy you found all these goodies and hope your new GW is wonderful when complete.
