How can that be, you ask? Usually errands are like a chore, right? Not for me . . . at least not today. Oh, it involved the post office, running into WalMart for envelopes and packing supplies, vitamins, new shower caddy -boring stuff. While at WalMart, I did grab up these boxes of Sweatheart candies for Son. No. 2's girlfriend.
She's a huge Twilight/New Moon fan - like every other young girl on the planet. They were only a buck a box. How could I pass them up! I've already bought her the heart box of chocolates with all three on the front. Good thing I don't have a girl - I'd be "broker" then I already am! ;o)
Do you get this magazine (click on "magazine" to sign up for your free subscription) in the mail?
It's free, and I've been getting it for years. There's always tons of great ideas. What really caught my attention in this issue, was this ad for a product kit by Modern Masters called Countertop Transformations.
I have been wanting to change the countertops in all our bathrooms for a long time now. But not having any money at all in the budget for such a big expense, I'm always looking and trying to find the most economical way we can do it when the time is right. This stuff looks great! I stopped in Lowe's so I could
see it . . . touch it . . . feel it . . . price it.
It may be the way to go when the time is right.
I also decided to take a look-see in the local Goodwill. Usually I find pretty much nothing in ours. I'm seriously thinking of sending Lisa over at Pickles and Cheese a blank check some day and have her snatch me up some goodies at her GW. She finds the greatest stuff!
That little flower pot is adorable! Love the color. The platter is silverplate.
A dollar a piece for the milkglass vases.
This picture was bought for it's frame. It will definitely be getting a new coat of paint and something else featured in it. Although, I'm a little intrigued with the artwork. It's signed and dated on the back and also written is "Caracas, Venezuela", which I assume is location for the little oil painting itself.
Well, I think I did pretty good today! I walked out with, what I think, to be some pretty decent things (not pictured are 3 books - 2 RD Condensed books and Candace Bushnell's Lipstick Jungle. That'll be for my girl's wkend away next month!) all for $10.50 TOTAL!
The one thing I'm most excited about, and didn't even realize what it was till I got home, is this Lenox votive holder. It's from Lenox's Wedding Promises line, and I found it/them (they're originally sold as a pair) online for $40 - that was a sale price! I just think it's so delicate and pretty and doesn't scream wedding at all. And look at that . . . I paid $2 for it. Yippie!
Last stop today was at the drugstore to pick some Tarn-X to shine up my new sliver piece. I couldn't wait! And those two magazines just jumped right into my bag! ;o)
On a side note, I mailed out the LOVE tag garlands to those of you who sent me addresses. Those of you who haven't, don't forget to email me so I can send you your gift!
Thanks for visiting!
