My Tuesday Treasures

This past weekend I was busy with some antique stores and the Houston Nutcracker Market. A place where you can shop at several booths for anything from clothing to Christmas ornaments. They play Christmas music and I must say it totally got me into the holiday spirit which was lacking for me lately. I'm also on the hunt to add to my collection of Christmas houses and churches. I love the glitter ones that are usually whites, blues and pinks. I found two more this weekend to add to my collection. I love to put them up on my fireplace mantle with fake snow. So I'm still on the hunt for more. If any of you have any suggestions on where they may be found please write me and let me know.

There were so many great things to buy but I didn't want to spend too much. I bought my daughter a beautiful glass purse trinket. Here are some items I found that were neat and also tasted very yummy.

Cherry Barbecue Sauce. Thought would be gross but OH so goodCherry Salsa and Cherry Jelly...TASTE SO GOOD!!!Fig Balsamic Dressing To die for & Olive/Cheese Spread YUMMY!Wine A Rita..you add your favorite wine to mix..OH SO GOOD. Got Cosmo FlavorBeautiful Shabby Green OrnamentsBeautiful Crystal Chandelier OrnamentI also got some pretty colored Christmas decorations, but they didn't take too well in the pictures. They had some amazing stuff in this booth and it was so beautiful!

Also a neat thing was seeing a famous soap opera actress. I use to watch her on Days Of Our Lives back in the 80's and early 90's. She is back on there now, but I have not watched for many years. Her name is Kristian Alfonso. She plays Hope. Part of the famous couple Bo and Hope. She was selling her jewelry. I tried to get the best picture possible. I took it when she was not looking and kind of at a distance. I didn't want to be one of those annoying fans lol.Hope you all enjoyed my Tuesday Treasures! Have a Fabulous Day!
