Today Was a Good Day

Today was a fantastic day even after a few stumbling blocks it turned out wonderful. I went thrifty shopping and I think I got some pretty good bargins. You never know what you will find in a thrift shop. Joyce called me early telling me about these ladder back chairs she saw the day before. They were gorgeous I didn't get them just yet because I am not sure if they have a spot in my home for them. They are black with the heavy straw woven seats and have hand painted flowers on the ladder part of them with bits of gold trim. Well this here is the chair I am buy from target to put on the bare wall by my steps, that Joyce thought the chairs in the thrift shop would be better and you get all four for 79.00 dollars it just not the same. This is the picture of the settee I am buying

Even though the ladder back chairs are really nice I just don't see a place right now in my small house to place them. But I did however buy these two chairs I just couldn't leave them in that cold lonely drabby thrift store they was calling out my name over and over begging me to please don't leave them behind.

I love them! I got them both for 45.00 dollars I am not sure if that is a bargain or not I just knew I had to have them. I also brought two lamps one for 12.00 and the other for 5.00 dollars, a black metal tray for 2 bucks and a wicker laundry basket for 1.50 So I think I did pretty good for the amount of money I spent.

And last but not lest I am a huge lover of red transferware and TOILE! well I found two nice pieces on etsy and I can't wait for them to come in the mail

Well that's it for now I need to get some rest whew I hope everyone has had a wonderful as well
Peace and Blessings

What a Saturday

Today I decided that I would try and paint the furniture on my front porch ugh. Well here is a before and a half finished after lol. I had two cans of spray paint and only to find out it takes 2 cans of paint for each chair so until I can go back to Home Depot and get more paint this is the results for now. I know my neighbors are saying why she even bothered those chairs are not done. I also want to paint the white wicker chair that use to be a rocker I have had now for 16yrs. That's my son I was pregnant with him when I gotten the rocker.

I found out I don't have as much strength in my hands as I use to it was really hard trying to hold trigger tight to spray the paint. I welcome any ideas anyone have that can help me cozy up this porch a bit.

Peace and Blessings

Today I wanted to take time out to thank all the bloggers who have read my blogs over the past months. I want also thank everyone who has kept me and my sons in prayer. Sometimes life can get a little ahead of you going so fast that you have to stop and Breath. I just didn't want it to go unsaid that I don't appreciate my blogging buddies.

Over the past months I have enjoyed reading your blogs and learning new things along the way. Even when I was not able to sit down and type out a blog of my own I enjoyed each of you sharing your life and talents. For those who have been asking about my son I want to let you know that he is doing Wonderful. He is working out more and more with his weights I am a very proud mom. Slowly I am doing a little bit of sewing here and there stil not able to sell any dolls lol but oh well I enjoy them. Now if anyone reading this can give me some tips on how to turn fingers using osnburg fabric. I am having a hard time whew my stuffing tool poking holes in it lol well until I can find out a easier way of doing this I guess I will go back to making mitten hands lol.

Have a Beautiful Day Everyone
Peace and Blessings

Something Just To Make You Smile

Yesterday my Best Friend Joyce went out shopping and I told her that I needed a larger trash can. The city that I live in now is suggesting that everyone have large trash containers at least 35 gallons ones. I told her the type I was looking for I wanted the lid to be attached. Well the first Home Depot she went to did not have any, so from that store she made a call to another store which they told her that they did have them. She went there to grab one only to find out they did not have them after all. So from that well the type I wanted which she seen was close the woman rang up 70 dollars!! Joyce said she screamed and aske to speak with the woman who she had spoken with on the phone well to make a long story short, Joyce got me a 45 Gallon 70 dollar trash can for 26 bucks!!

Now here comes the funny part ok I don't live in the subs nor do I live where everything is always peaches and cream lol. So with that being said I gave my new trash can a look all it's own to distract it from suddenly growing feet and leaving from out my yard lol and here it is

Have a Great Day Everyone
Peace and Blessings
