I found a couple of cool bases today for crystal balls. Like I need them---but I bought them. lol

Also picked up a few things for my up and coming fairy garden. I think I am going to have issues with the scale of things as I am picking things up here and there. But, it is a fairy world, so I figure it will be okay. At least in my twisted mind. I mean, who really knows about fairies. It just may be a Hobbit sort of place, too.

Another Goodwill find.
I got this little pumpkin lantern for 95 cents today.
It appears to be kinda old? The base is metal, and the pumpkin globe thingy is glass.
The bulbs look pretty old. The bottom was missing, so I can't identify who made it.
My guess is it was made in the 60's? I'll have to get some batteries to see if it lights up :)
Has anyone seen one like this before?

The people across the street moved out & had a TON of trash out front. I suspected most of it wasn't really "trash" so I went & checked it after they left & found a bunch of plastic pots in good shape & in the middle of it all there was a pumpkin bucket & an Angry Birds McDonalds Halloween pail.

There were a bunch of bags tied up & I really should've gone through them but I just couldn't.
