{EXCITING finds + our trip to Oak Glen}

This morning, our family went on our annual trip to Oak Glen to enjoy some fall festivities. We arrived at about 8:30 am and headed straight to the homemade apple and cinnamon donuts (I have been craving them for a while now)-sooo YUMMY! We then went and had some breakfast, walked around to see the vendors, fed some deer, played with the softest bunny rabbits ever, and did some shopping which leads me to sharing my awesome finds today!
(Or at least I think they are awesome!)
I found this cool red and gold statement ring for super cheap amongst lots of other trinkets. I think it makes a perfect fall ring-see the leaf shapes? :)

Next up, see those little "chocolate covered strawberries?" I was SOOOO excited to stumble upon these! I almost didn't even see these because they were clustered in with so many other random items but as soon as my eyes met them, I HAD to have them (& at $2.99 each, even more so). 
Why would I need fake little strawberry desserts might you ask? Well, I created this little cake stand (my tutorial here) and I got these chocolate scented-chocolate truffle candles to add to the stand in our kitchen. I decided that I would go on a hunt for more little dessert pieces to add to the collection and so, when I saw the strawberries, they were perfect! 
Next up, cupcakes and donuts! :) 

On our way home driving through Yucaipa, we spotted a yard sale which is where I found this piece (& only $2)! This would be a cute decor piece for parties, styled shoots, etc. I'm going to get a few glass plates from the $1 store (white) & paint the iron either ivory (shabby chic style) or gold. Not sure yet. 
What do you think? 

I thought those were all quite exciting pieces don't you? 
hahaha :) 

Now for some pictures of the day. 
(My camera on my phone started acting up and adding a crazy glare so I didn't take as many as I wanted) 


A beautiful morning in the mountains. 
There were peacocks running around! So pretty!
& our little family.
(^see the crazy glare I'm talking about?)
