A couple weeks ago Steve and I took a Monday off and went shopping in Amish Country while the kids were in school. We rarely get to do this since I work a ton and Steve is finally getting busy. (Thank goodness) He is subcontracting for a new company that might hire him on full time if they find he is a hard worker and he knows what he's doing. So, keep your fingers crossed and say an extra prayer that he get's a full time job with benefits. He really needs blood pressure medicine, but won't get it because he can't afford it. I can't say as I blame him, but I want him around for awhile and not have a heart attack on me. Anyway, I got way off track here... Darn ADHD any how. lol. We happened to go to one thrift store that already had it's Christmas Open House going on already. Two of my BFF's went the week before and got a ton of stuff, so I just had to go too. Yeah, if they jumped off a bridge I'd follow them. lol. Peer pressure is horrible when you have a thrift store addiction. lol.
Here is some wonderful goodies I found....
My addiction to pewter... believe it or not the wreath is pewter. $3.00 woot woot!!!!
The rest is just roughed up silver obviously.
There are actually two picks here... complete with pine cones... $1.00 a piece
A boxwood looking plastic wreath. The red bow will go and I'll replace it with something else.
To add to another collection... a biscuit cutter and a beautiful mold for my super duper wax pouring addiction lol
Last but not least, a wool blanket. It is actually cream with red and green stripes. I'm taking pictures in the dark and they aren't great.
I know like I needed more stuff for Christmas. I have already pulled out all my Christmas decor magazines and books and have poured through them. I trying to get my head together for Christmas decorating. I won't get it out until after Thanksgiving is over. I have a lot to be thankful for and I don't want to skip this very important time of year.
I will be back tomorrow evening or Thursday morning with some new decorating I've done with my new pieces of furniture. Ummmm.... yeah... I bought another new (old)piece of furniture. It was an awesome price and I couldn't pass it up. So I have moved things around...AGAIN... ha I'm never done doing that. lol... I can't post it tonight because I can't get a good picture of it because it's too dark. I'll do that tomorrow in amongst everything else on my day off. See you soon :)
OHHHHHH... if you are friends with me on Facebook and got some horrible things posted on your wall or PMs supposedly from me I was hacked on Sunday. I apologize... trust me I would never send anything like that to any of you.
