Friday Five

1. A New Candy

Granddaughter Kendall introduced me to these fun size candies. And I do limit myself to just one. They are yummy!!

2. New Clarks Sandals

I love Turquoise and I could not resist this pair of Clarks. These shoes are real work horses. I have three pairs of Clark Summer Sandals.

3. A New Light

I had been wanting a sink top lamp for my guest bath. It tends to be dark and I wanted a light to turn on when we are entertaining.  I found this beauty at Dollar General for just $10.  The lamp uses three Double A batteries so no cord!! Makes it easy to clean the countertop and the lamp can be placed anywhere I choose.

4. Fresca

I had forgotten about this citrus soda from the 70s. I picked up a pack at Publix and Marvin and I both are truly enjoying these old favorites. So refreshing.

5. Books

I aim always on the Look Out for Golden Books for my sister, Kristi. Well I found both of these for 25 Cents each at our Library Book Store.  The Uncle Wiggly book has a price sticker that reads 39 cents. The copywriter for it was 1961.  It is a Wonder Book. The Nursery Rhymes book is a Whitman Publication. I really enjoyed reading the old nursery rhymes. The pictures are so nostalgic as well.  The Uncle Wiggly story features some Honey Bees....maybe I should keep it for Just kidding Kristi.

Those shoes are so cute. I just love the color. That lamp is adorable too! I have quite a collection of Little Golden books. I don't know what it is about them, but you just want to pick them up.

You have some good 'finds'. Love the sandals and the light for the bathroom especially. Hope you have a great weekend.

I love Clark shoes! Your new sandals are darling and I am thinking next trip to town I am going to need to stop by and look at some styles. :)

That light for the guest bathroom is adorable...and a great price!

And who doesn't love Golden Books? Great finds!

I love to collect Golden books too and it's fun to find old ones. Hard to believe they are $5 now...even at Walmart! I like citrus drinks in the summer...I need to make something good today! It's so HOT! Enjoy your day!

Thanks for the shoe recommendation! They look great in that color and also look mighty comfortable. Aren't those Oreo candy bar treats good? I haven't seen them in the fun size around here so will keep looking. Off to Dollar General to check out that light! Good find on the books! Enjoy your Friday; have a scoop of ice cream as it is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day!

That light from Dollar General is a real find!!! It will be perfect in your guest bathroom and I like that it can be easily picked up when cleaning.

You have some fun things here! From candy to sandals to books and a light! I remember Fresca!!

I love the blue Clark’s, I haven’t saw any like that here, or the candy either, I do remember Fresca, it is good, the lamp is a great idea, and a great buy!
