Who's thinking Christmas?

I stopped at Hobby Lobby yesterday to pick up a few things for my decorations for Autumn Fest in October. (more on that when it gets closer...and I am more ready)  One thing on my list was white twinkle lights because I knew they had rows and rows of Christmas decorations already shelved.  But, this was the big sale week for Fall decorations, so the lights were not on sale.

Then today I revisited an estate sale a block from my house and look what I found. A box of Christmas lights containing...

One strand of red lights,

three strands of multi colored lights,
a set of vintage lights,
several strands of multi colored lights with...
cute little faceted bulbs,
this lovely strand of faceted white lights, AND...
1800 white lights that have never been unwrapped.
I know this is not thee most exciting buy of the season but I paid $5!  Sale or no sale, you are not going to find 100 lights for $5.
Then I spent another $2 on...
a very sturdy wicker wastebasket for my guest room and..
a hounds tooth umbrella that had my name written all over it.
