Found the Carole King TAPESTRY CD at the thrift shop for $1. Also got Alan Jackson Greatest Hits Collection and Pop Classics of the 1960's -- all for $1 each. I just had my BOSE CD Wave Machine repaired at the cost of $350 -- exhorbitant but I love that machine and they quit making it. Anyway -- I play my CD's all day long and am enjoying them greatly.

I am also always searching for good DVD's -- when the Chinese shoot down all the satellites I will still be able to watch my movies. I found a 1970's Burt Reynolds classic -- The Man Who Loves Cat Dancing for $1

Finally I found a perfect sized bowl for my oatmeal -- beautiful Polish Pottery -- and I did pay the outrageous sum of $12 because I liked it so much.

The solar-led-lights that are sold at Dollar Tree are a pretty great deal, I just bought a whole bunch of them for the house.

I set the lights up in areas where they will charge during the daytime, and put-out light that both myself and the neighborhood_creepies can see at night.

A led-light that also has a light-sensor to turn the led on and off, solar-panel, and a
rechargeable-battery, that is a pretty decent deal for $1.25. The one downside is, the lights that come with the AAA-cells really will not stay bright all night, even if they have been well charged throughout the day. No biggy, I just installed a better quality battery.

I love plants as I posted before, but I think I have enough now, I bought a beautiful ponytail palm plant. Now I have 22 plants in all.

At a second-hand store, I bought a cream-colored jug and basin with a mother of pearl application someone must have made in ceramics. (they used to use jugs/basins on a wash stand in bathrooms long ago)

I turned the basin into a bird bath in my front yard, and put the jug in my flower bed, tilted, with plants flowing/growing out of it. A real two-for-one bonus for me. They both look awesome.
