Best Find This Year

I have left my local thrift store empty handed for about two months now.

Persistance paid off tho.

Today score, this fine gem.


Shut Up! Yes, really $1.00!!
I know you can see it too, a coat of white spray paint.
The Dr. Pepper bottle is just to show it's size.
And now......

New Buffet

I've wanted a buffet for my dining room for over a year now.
But didn't quite have buffet monies.

My neighbor threw out this record player console.
So guess who gutted it and has a new buffet. ME!

I couldn't believe gutting it would make it
at least 100 pounds lighter.
I still have to find some wood to make doors
and I want to paint it a blue/grayish color.
More to follow on this project.

Well it's done...

It just so happened that the reason I had the primer paint handy,
was because it was nice enough weather to finally paint this....

All I need for this is some cute pillows.

Some Beach, Somewhere.

Besides my must have papertowels from Walgreens on Sunday,
my weekend was full of ...
Suntan Lotion, Ocean Breezes, Salty Waves, and Sandy Flip Flops.
It was Wonderful!
Unfortunatly my hubby had to work, but I spent the weekend with my kids, my Mom, and my Brother.

I just love those smiley faces.
They teach me about finding pleasure in the smallest of things all the time.

Goodbye Summer,
Hello Fall!

Their Trash - My Treasure...

 My neighbor put this beauty in the trash.
She is gonna need some work but I think she looks good on the sunporch.
It will hold my coffee quite nicely. A little paint and knob.
And don't pick on my plastic chairs,
they are holders till my next blessing comes along.

(Her BEFORE Shot.)
Be patient, might be a few before I get the after shot.

I think this view for my new table is
alot better than any view at the landfill.

And now for my weekly Walgreens Trip:
(Have I mentioned I love Walgreens)
I know you're thinking those savings are good but not OMG good.
What can I say, it was a slow week.

Wreath Ideas

I love wreaths, and the more unusual the better I like them.
I made this map wreath a few months ago.
I want to make a sheet music one similar to it,
just have to get my hands on the paper.

The Girls over at " Wayward Girl Crafts " made an awsome $2 wreath.

And last for the holiday,  I found this idea over at

There is so much wonderful talent out there.
I'm excited to see what my blogging neighbors are
going to come up with next.
