My booth buddies and I hit up Cleburne on Saturday and I found aa few good things. We went to a few yard sales, two small flea markets, and the Goodwill. I had a $10 frequent shopper voucher to spend at the Goodwill. Here are my finds:

I found a recipe online for Red Velvet cake balls and decided I would make some as a treat for my Mom on Mother's Day. They were messy, but very easy to do. Recipe: 1 box Red Velvet cake mix 1 16 oz. tub cream cheese frosting Chocolate or white chocolate almond bark Prepare cake mix as you would if you were making a 9 x 13 sheet cake. Let cake cool completely. Crumble cake into a bowl and add entire contents of frosting to crumbled cake. Mix well. Roll into quarter sized balls and place on wax paper lined cookie sheet. Put into freezer until firm. Melt almond bark in microwave. Dip balls into melted almond bark and place onto wax paper and let cool. These are fabulous and my Mom loved them!
I hit the Goodwill in North Richland Hills on Saturday and the pickins were pretty good. I found the following items to put in my booth: China painted rose plate, Westbend turquoise wind-up alarm clock, Avon hen on basket, Pyrex butterfly gold mixing bowl, Fenton aqua crest bon-bon dish, Longaberger bread basket, Bambi Little Golden Book, Rocking Bunny, Deviled egg plate, Silver w/ turquoise cross, Pez lunchbox w/ thermos, Cottage metal sign, Milano gold tumbler I got everything really cheap, but I'm posting this from work and can't remember the prices.

This is an early Mother's Day wish for all those Mom's out there who made sacrifices, dried tears, provided taxi service, gave sound advice, cooked, cleaned and still found time to be creative. A special shout out to those single Mom's who are able to do the above and then some. Happy Mother's Day!

I'm so excited to be able to go to Canton this weekend. This is a once-a-month flea market and one of the best around. There is always great stuff to be found at Canton. I'm sure I'll come back with a trunkload.
