I have a St. Patrick's Day story to tell . . .
Now I do have a wee bit of Irish blood flowing through my veins and today it paid off.
In what can only be described as,
"The Luck Of The Irish".
Butchy had a veterinarian appointment for his yearly shots,
and his once every three years rabies vaccine.
Coming home from town, I decided to stop off at the Goodwill.
Now, I have been looking for a round pedestal table
and chairs for a very long time.
Not only that but three days ago
I posted a "wanted to buy" ad on Craig's list.
Well, I walked in and looked at their furniture and of course there was nothing.
Then a young man came out from the back with a dresser.
So, I took a chance and told him what I was looking for.
He said well, one just came in, follow me to the backroom and see what you think.
Well, it was the exact style that I was dreaming of finding.
And because of the "glow in the dark green"color
(looks better in these photos than real life)
I got it for $35.
It has a missing dowel on the side of one chair.
That's an easy fix for Steve.
And there are scuffs and crayons drawings , that's easy for me.
I have had lots of practice scrubbing and sanding :)
I'm in heaven, but that's not the end of my story.
Here's a shot of the crayon art :)
I also got this $3.99 . . . remember my flag pillow for the front porch :)
This was also $3.99 . . . I never turn down a small shelf.
Then I spied this grab bag for $1.99
When I opened it all of this was inside.
Well, what do you think ?
Not bad, Right?
But, that's still not the end of my story.
It was senior day and I got an $8.99 discount for being vintage :)
This is a St. Patty's Day to remember.
Am I smiling?
Yep, a smile that spreads from ear to ear :)
Have a great day and please leave a comment.
I love reading them.
