He will have the cast off before the 4th of July so that is good news...but that sure sounds like a long ways off. Especially when we have to keep telling him..."don't get it wet"...and then we are wrapping it in a garbage bag for every bath. Woe is me...boys....will be boys!!
I have had no time to blog..and boy do I miss it! I miss all of my blog friends and I miss reading all of the sweet comments that you leave me! I was looking at my pictures...and trying to decide~what have I shared and what have I not. And then I thought it's been so long...I think I have been thrifting a few times since my last post... So I will be sharing some of my new found old treasures.....and also some wonderful family treasures that I got from my parents when I went back to my hometown to visit! Keep in mind I haven't posted in a while...so I have quite a few goodies to share~
Let's start with a couple of weekends ago. My Mom and I got away together for a bit....to sneak downtown to a couple of antique shops. I saw lots of goodies I liked....but I picked a few favorite things. We had a great time!
Then when we got back home....my Mom and I went hunting down some family treasures around the house! I am SO excited to have these items! The Chinese Checkerboard was my Grandmas....we used to play it whenever we went to her house! I am so glad to have it...it brings back wonderful memories. The berry baskets are also family treasures...they are very used and I love that!! The table was one that my Mom had started refinishing years ago..and just never got it completed...so now I get to finish it up! I can't wait! And the spools...well... I just love them all! Thanks Mom and Dad...I will find special places for everything!
Here are my thrifty finds from last weekend! My sweet husband drove me around to different thrift stores and we found a new antique store too! Yay! I am on the hunt for more end tables to re-do for the basement..haven't found any yet. I think garage sales may be my best bet for those. But in looking for end tables I did find these goodies!
This little old chair! I love it....It was way up high on a shelf and I asked the guy how much it was....he pulled it down and he said "It's $10"....and I looked the chair over for literally two seconds and he said "will you take it for $7"? And I said heck ya...In my head I was saying I would have taken it for $10!! Haha! For right now I haven't painted it...and I can't decide if I should or not... Isn't it cute?
Here are the rest of my finds for that day! Don't you worry...that clock will be getting a makeover....It was only $2.98....the unfinished spoon rack in the back was $1.98. The long peg shelf was also a whopping $2.98....I think I spent a total of $25 this day..including the little old chair!
I am just itching to do these makeovers...because I have plans for everything in these pictures!! There are just not enough hours in the day right now! I am sure you can all relate! For me doing makeovers is relaxing..so I am hoping to do some this weekend!
Oh yea..here is my last thrifty trip....I sort of got lost on the way to the grocery store one day this week..Oops! :) The bench seat is a funny story...when my Mom and I were at the antique store we saw one JUST like it...refinished for $30! I didn't buy it....well lo and behold I walked into Goodwill and there was the same bench seat for $9.99!! Now I can refinish it and choose my own fabric..! Another little chair for $5.00...the picnic basket is HUGE and in great shape...and a set of three wooden stack boxes... The little wooden gameboard...is going to get a makeover too!
So I guess I should say...stay tuned for makeovers! I better get busy!! I hope you are all doing well! Until next time. Take care. ~Sarah~
