Another Hodge-Podge Post!
Hello everyone! Hope this finds you all well and happy! I am so excited to get to share a couple treasures I found today! The hubby and I went shopping today....I needed several odds and ends for school and we just wanted to get out! First we went shopping for him and then we ate lunch and then I did a little shopping too. We had a delicious lunch at Red Robin.....Yummmm! LOL...I couldn't resist!
Anywho, after lunch we ran to the Goodwill so I could look for a couple things for school. No success in finding what I was looking for, but I did manage to find a couple awesome things for myself! First up is this huge metal basket. I love it and it will be so useful in my craft room! It was just $2.99.
Here it is with on of my throw pillows in it so you can see how big it is. It doesn't even need to be painted ...yay!
I also found these babies! Two sets of vintage metal card cabinet file drawers. I have really been wanting some of these for a while! I love vintage office supplies. These sell for $20-$60 each on ETSY....my price....$2.99 each!
I don't like the tan color so I will be painting them one day.
They even came with a bunch of these vintage divider cards with metal tabs....I spelled out my name here!
A little blurry, but you can see there are bunches of them. I know there is something really awesome to use them for....I just don't know what that something is yet!
Now....my dear hubby was like....where are you going to put them....what do you need them for and so on, and I was like just go get me a cart to put them in...lol! I stood guard over them while he was gone....no way I was letting them go!
So, as we were unloading them to pay, he turned one over and this sticker was on the bottom. Yep, it says Hunt Manufacturing and you guys probably know my last name is Hunt, so I told him it was fate!
They were destined to be ours...;)
While I was standing in line to pay, I glanced at the frames and pictures for sale and spotted this.....
Now....all of you may not follow Suzan's blog, Simply Vintageous, but if you do, you will understand why I had to snap a photo and had a good chuckle over this squirrel poster. If you don't follow and want to know....click here and here to read about Suzan's Squirrel Saga. You won't regret it...:)
Oh....and Suzan....if you're reading this, don't freak out! This one can't catch you!
Now....I just have to add a little color to this otherwise drab bunch of photos! As I said earlier, I was shopping for a few items for school and I just have to share something I bought!
Isn't this adorable! I went in Barnes and Noble to purchase a different book and came out with this one too! I couldn't resist and it will be perfect to help teach color words! I absolutely love children's literature and could easily spend 2-3 hours browsing just the children's section of the bookstore! I saw several more I wanted, but I resisted temptation and only got the two.
Here is the other one....
Sorry about the photo quality...the flash didn't work here for some reason. I use Chrysanthemum to introduce our names unit. We talk about how different our names are....short and long and some we have never heard. I do have some unusual names this year as well....
And although I can't put it on here, you will never guess what Heavens last name is! If you think you know, leave it in the comment box and I will e-mail you to tell you if you guessed correctly. Anway, we will count and graph the number of letters in our names and practice spelling them in centers so they recognize theirs as well as their classmates. We'll have lots of fun with it!
Well, that's it for today! I am glad I had something to share today! I have missed posting often. I do have a flea market trip planned for tomorrow so hopefully I will find a couple more treasures to share tomorrow night!
So....until next time.....
