Weekend finds!

I thought I would share a few things that we picked up this weekend.

I love going to the Goodwill the day before their 50% off Saturday (not sure about your area, but they do this every two weeks here!).  I am sure that everyone wants to wait until they can get everything at half the price by waiting so it is typically FULL of stuff.

I have also found that if you snooze, you just may lose!  One time I saw the coolest sideboard/dresser there and was sure that no one would buy it, as it was, for the price it was, which I believe was only $25.  It was literally covered in kids stickers!  If I would have thought for one minute that someone would have actually paid full price for it, I certainly would have gone ahead and bought it right then.  It is still a thorn in my side that I missed out on it!

Anyhoo, back to last Friday.  As expected the store was full.  I found this cute little table:

I get positively giddy when I find something that is actually real wood...and this table was!  No major damage and the price was $14.99.  That is a little more than I like to spend on items that I plan to refinish and possibly sell (I usually give my daughters "dibs", if it's not something I am going to use myself).  I was not in the mood to come back the next day and fight other crazies for it!

The next piece I found on Craigslist.  It is a king size headboard and since Melissa still did not have one for her newly acquired king size bed, I sent her the listing.  She liked it so we went and picked it up.

Not bad for $20, right?  Of course it needs a "facelift" and if the background looks familiar, you can probably see that it is sitting in MY garage, waiting for me to work some magic!

That's all I got for now!  It's been a slow cookie time...I have not made any in weeks!  Can you believe it?!

Till next time! 

There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies! Photobucket

good stuff terri! funny-you're on a cookie hiatus and I'm on a building hiatus!
It's been forever, and I am having a hard time getting back to it. A lot of it is the weather. But I'm so unmotivated. :(
have a great week!
