Don't you just love finding
cool things at thrifty prices :)
This watermelon is made of paper mache'.
It's a Goodwill find for $3.99
(plus my senior discount).
The pretty red scale was a gift from my
sweet friend Shirley :)
This little polka dot chicken jar
was only $1.99, Goodwill again.
They just give my kitchen that farmhouse feel.
I think that I've posted the pig before.
He was also a Goodwill find :)
At a yard sale a week or so ago,
I spotted this old sled.
They were asking $20 for this and $20 for
a small cabinet that I also purchased.
I only had $29.86 in my purse,
because I was on my way home from
Joanne Fabrics, LOL.
So they excepted my offer of all that I had,
for both items :)
for both items :)
I've made more jam this week.
Raspberry from our three bushes,
and blackberry from some berries that were given
to me by a dear friend.
On to the Art Barn.
We had this electric fireplace/heater
in the living room of our old house.
I've had it stuck in a corner of the house,
but have wanted to bring it out here to the barn.
I just didn't think I had the room for it.
Well after rearranging and shuffling things
around, Viola, I made it fit!
It will be nice & cozy, come winter :)
There is a magic to rearranging furniture.
You always feel like you have a new room,
I love it!
This is a chandelier that I have been working on,
for the Art Barn.
It's a combo of an old weather wreath,
some small branches that fell from our trees,
and a set of patio canning jar lights.
Perfect for the barn :)
Last but not least . . .
This gumball machine
was at the Goodwill for $7.99.
I filled it with old broken watches
and clock parts.
What do you think?
If you are still here . . .
thanks for sticking it out.
I know it was a long post.
Thanks for your friendship and support.
I appreciate you all :)
