entering The Frugal Desinger's giveaway!!
Welcome to another Treasure Thursday!!
This post is really late in the day, I'll explain why later.
In the meantime let's take a look at what I found this week.
Since this post I have painted the frame!!
DecoArt's Americana in Evening Blue.
Take a look at how it looks now!!
It picks up the blue in the photo perfectly!!
So if you happen to be reading this post because you came over from The Frugal Designer..
VOTE FOR ME!!! ;)
Alright, back to the regular post now...
Not sure why this photo got flipped? Anyone else having trouble while loading photos?
Anyhow, I thought these were cute maybe as a candle holder?
This wooden lazy susan looked like it had potential!!
Funny thing is, the same day I bought it Dawn over at Ciao Bella posted a great tutorial on monogramming one. I just might give it a try!
$2.99- not bad huh?
Then there were these guys. I bought a bunch more but only had enough sand for a couple.
If you follow along on my Facebook Fan page, you'll remember me posting the inspiration photo for the outdoor party I plan on having
.50 cents each
I also found this mirror I thought would look great in Lil' mans room.
It's made to resemble old license plates. I've never used a mirror in his room before but I figured Junior high is right around the corner, he might start caring about how he looks soon!??!
This mirror is going in Lil' Red's room if she EVER keeps it clean enough!
I'll probably paint it cream.
Look at the detail...
For $10.00 it's a score!!
If you were waiting for me to show you some amazing piece of furniture I was lucky enough to snatch up for a couple bucks, well sorry to tell you we're BOTH disappointed then.
Nothing going on in the usual places this week but that's ok, I don't have the room for it anyway!!
So on to the life portion...
So yesterday I was in the garage painting my little heart out in 90 degree weather. It wasn't to bad.
I finally put the first top coat of Varathane on a couple of pieces and wanted to take photos.
Well somehow (maybe it was the paint fumes) I managed to lock myself out!!!
So once again...
Mr. Treasures to the rescue!!
I"ll spare you the details of how I looked and the fact that I was barefoot with paint all over me. I'll also spare you the details of me trying to unlock ANYTHING that looked even remotely like a key would fit in it with a key that seems to unlock NOTHING. I'll also spare you the details of how I had to go next door and interrupt my newly retired neighbors outdoor lunch just so I could call Mr. Treasures.
And they thought it'd be peaceful retiring HA!
It's not even summer yet- wait till the kids are outback swimming and SCREAMING all day long! ;)
While I waited for Mr. Treasures to get there I decided I'd go ahead and remove this photo from the frame.
My plan was to use the large empty frame on one of the walls in my home, framing a bunch of smaller frames.
Well It must have been the combo of a hot day and paint fumes because I actually started to think it wasn't that bad of a photo and maybe I'd leave it as is.
Then I got bored...
and started snapping photos of my view while on said porch.
Not a bad view if you have to be "stuck" somewhere.
my email was hacked.
Oh wait it gets better,
An email was sent from my email address to several people in my address book with a link attached.
Oh wait it gets better,
Can you say LOVELY!?!?
My Mother and I left at 6:00 am to visit with him before the surgery.
We waited for hours for him to get out of surgery.
Finally the Dr. came and talked with us but we weren't going to be able to see Grandpa for a while
We had no choice but to leave.
We sure were relieved!!
It was a very serious surgery for a not so serious guy.
