This & That
Can't believe it's been two weeks since I last posted! Life sure gets busy when the school year begins. Nothing too exciting going on around here right now, but I thought I would share a few things I have bought/received recently. First up are a few crafty things I found at Tuesday Morning a few weeks ago. They have such awesome prices and nice, quality items. I bought a paper cutter...I needed a new one for home. I also bought a tool to use for torn paper edges. I have been wanting one of those.
I couldn't pass up this cute little number 4, since it's my favorite number. I can easily repaint it! And I just fell in love with these cute buttons!
Last weekend, my friend Jeana and I went out to dinner and did a little shopping and I was thrilled to find a small mercury glass lamp. I have been looking for one for weeks for my living room. This one was perfect in every way! I found it at TJ Maxx.
Here it is on the black cabinet in my living room...love!
I also found a galvanized "H" at Michael's. I have a hard time finding the letter "H". It must be one of the more popular beginning letters for last names.
Joey and I went to a yard sale and I only purchased one item...and it was just $1! I love this large metal plate rack...but I won't be using it for plates! Stay tuned.....
After school let out one day, I was walking my kiddos up to the parent pick-up area and one of my moms met me with this little beauty! She made it just for me! I never receive a handmade gift and never out of the blue like that. I was so tickled! Her little boy, my student, picked out the colors himself. This couldn't have been more perfect for me if I had ordered it custom made. So sweet...:)
It holds three pint sized painted mason jars. I can't wait to put some fresh flowers in it!
I also finished my book.....and it didn't disappoint. It was a little different for this author, but after I read the end, I totally understood why. I highly recommend him, but I would start with his older novels first.
I know it's not much, but that's it for today! I did finally receive a little something I ordered for my new vehicle and I hope to share just a few photos of it tomorrow. I am loving it! For now though, I am off to lay back down. My allergies hit me full force yesterday and have just about done me in. I haven't done much other that lay around today and it's almost 7 p.m.! I am hoping and praying I feel better before Monday morning though because I really am not ready to leave my little kinders in the care of a substitute yet. Have a blessed weekend all.....until next time.....
