Did you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day? I did too, rained all day though and it has continued to this morning! A little tired of it so hopefully the sun will come out today for a little bit, I know one thing it sure is green outside!
Guess what I did on Mother’s Day? I went dumpster diving…we live right near a college town and Saturday was graduation and you know what that means don’t you? Everything is put/thrown out to the curb that they don’t want or can’t take back home with them. One year we found a beautiful, white lounge chair for by the pool, from Lowes and we knew it sold for $45.00. This year I found this…out by a dumpster, I had went to the store and decided to take a look at the dumpster across the street from our college rental and there she sat waiting for me. She’s heavy but I finally got her in the back of the car, poor thing look at the different color markings they/she put on her?
But wait look at the one side of her, She is a Basset and has great bones, this will be my new desk!
Yesterday I had a doctor’s appointment so after that I decided to go to the Salvation Army Store, a much neater and cleaner place then GW but more expensive, I did find a few things though.
This bottle, on the left, caught my eye since I need more to fill up the tray that I took bottles from for my PB Copy Cat, I still have them sitting on the table. Anyway I think I paid a $1.99 for it, it’s not old but that’s okay!
I found this for $1.49, I’m going to paint it black and remove the hooks, where I will put it I’m not sure yet.
Here was a great find, I love it and the colors in it, a very well made picture and frame and looks to be an expensive one at that. It had $9.99 on it but it was 50% off yesterday so for $5.00 it was mine!
A closer look!
I just hung it here so I could see what it would look like on my wall. If I keep it here I’d lower it a little.
As you can see in this picture I’m moving things here and there, stay tuned for my big project that Stush is doing for me!
