Wow! I feel like I have just been "go, go, going!" all week. And now - my morning Clutter Busters appointment (I still haven't talked about that yet, have I?) cancelled because she didn't get her homework done - so I have some free time. YAY!! And it's cold and raining out, a perfect day to put on a pot of soup and tackle some unfinished projects! I just love days like this!
So the other day I hit Home Goods and Goodwill. And the people must've thought I was nuts when I danced my way out each door with my treasures. I think I found some GOOD STUFF!!!! What do you think?
This is a small cupcake/plate stand that goes with the urn and rectangular tray I found a few weeks ago.
The large tin is about 12" tall, and the smaller one about 8"
Mercury Glass! My second piece. This could be trouble!
A fun little shadow box for Justin's bedroom/my office beach-themed room.
And here are some of them in their new home in my scrap-happy room . . .
And on Justin's nightstand.
Now - on to my Goodwill treasures!
The whole lot for $12!!!!!! Can you spell HAPPY?!!!! Everything just needs a coat of primer and paint, a little sanding . . . good as new!! And who doesn't need another bulletin board for $ .99?
I needed a place to put the boy's mail that still comes to our house. Perfect!
Look at this box. I am so excited about this find. It is such a nice piece. Very well made, every corner mitered, handles carved - I think it is Cherrywood. I can't wait to get this filled up on my scrap table!
Very cute wallsconce!
Most of it is down in the garage as I post this with it's first coat of primer on it. Very fun!
So that's my day so far. I hope to have these pieces in their new homes by tomorrow morning. Then I do need to hit the sewing machine again. I've got the table skirts made and put up, but I need to add the pink and the trim on the bottom. I am having a very difficult time finding some really large buttons in the right color pink to put in the middle of the box pleat, and decided, why not make some? (I'm not about to spend $2.00 each which is about the price of what I'm finding so far. I need 18 of them, so that is not an option.) I need to go find a dowel that is the right size and my dh said he'd show me how to cut them out with the chop saw and then drill holes. We'll see how that goes. Then I'd just need to paint them and sew them on! Sounds kind of easy doesn't it? Hmmmmmm...
Come back and see!!!!!
Everyone have a good day! and a GREAT weekend!!
(I'm tellin' you, somebody needs to invent blog-aroma. My homemade chicken soup I put on before I came up here is smelling just heavenly!)
