Suddenly I can't stop Saling!

It was a weird sailing day. The first one I stopped at had paintings up to $300! I skedaddled so quickly I didn't even take a cellpic. The next one was an antiquer's sale and just as bad. I was heading home when I found loads of breakables at this sale:
 
The green vases are almost 2 feet tall! I'm planning to stick snow and white twigs into the blue ones in a month or two. There's no sense in heralding winter before its time. $1 each

The green vases will be staying in the kitchen, flanking our tremendous bamboo. Both are from Ikea and the one on the right is about 1.5 years old while the baby next to it came here about 4-5 months ago. Come to think of it - I've never heard bad things about Ikea plants - maybe that's where I should buy all of them from now on.
  • 6 brand new machine washable (I quadruple checked) place mats from Fortunoff - $1.50
  • Black metal napkin holder because I feel weird plunking napkins down when we have company - .50
  • Home Cheap Home decor book - .25
  • Lenox ornaments - $1
  • Silver, animal print magazine holder - $2
The tarnish came off easily. Hopefully it re-tarnishes evenly or else I'll just spray paint it.
I think these were part of a "12 Days of Christmas" set because there are lovebirds in #1 and #3 has pears. Any idea what #2 is?
