Yippee!!!! (whistle whistle) Doing the happy dance... LOL I had to go to the Goodwill (yes had lol) on Wednesday after I talked to you last. Remember my daughter needed a black pair of pants for her choir concert? Anyway, so as not to make a wasted trip I had to look around right. There is no way any of you could go in for one thing and not look around so don't kid yourself. LOL. In my little town we had the neighborhood yard sales last weekend. I did not go to any of them believe it or not. No, I wait for people to take their unsold items to the Goodwill. Well, I first look for the pants and find a pair that will work for the night. They wear choir robes over top so if they aren't perfect who will know and she stands in the top row. She is very tall for 14, yes, taller than her mama. LOL. Then I saunter over to the everything goes shelf and find this beauty for $3.00!!!!
The last unfinished cheesebox I found turned into this...
Now I must decide what color to paint my new one. Red, black, mustard, grey, hmmm what color would they use in colonial times???
Ok moving on as not to draw attention to myself. I know others are watching and stalking me to see what treasure I will find next. I just know they are looking for the same things I am. So I walk briskly to the Christmas shelves (which there is a lot of Christmas items). Do you see a theme that I am on the look out for Christmas stuff??? LOL I told you I am ready to decorate for Christmas this year!!!! After not decorating last year this year will be a blow out. Anyway, I find what looks to be a planter tray. But not for me... I will use it as a candle tray. I might even put a mirror in the bottom of it who knows.
This is only a close up of it. Just wait I will show you the rest in the next picture. LOL.
I now the big reveal of everything else... TADA!!!!! A checkerboard and some small candles on a stick as I like to call it. LOL. And a small primitive wood box to tuck in.
Not bad for a grand total of $12.36 including the pants and tax!!!!
I am now off of work for the next three days. I NEED to clean out my garage according to my kids. I agree, and who knows I may start a selling blog just to get rid of some stuff. LOL. It is a rainy day today with a possibility of up to 2 inches of rain. I think today will be a good day to craft or go to Pat Catan's. I haven't decided yet. And Becca yes it is nice being my own boss. LOL.
Yesterday, the final issues were worked out on my marriage dissolution. We go to court on Wednesday of next week to sign the papers. It will be approximately 2 and half weeks short of a year that my world came crashing down. I have recovered (not unscathed) with a lot of help from God, my online blogger friends, family and counseling. So big prim hugs to all of you who remember and were with me and did not judge me. To those who are my new friends prim hugs to you too because you have kept me blogging and helped me start anew. Love all of you!!!!
