Schools Out for Summer!!

I keep singing that Alice Cooper song in my head.  Today was the last day of school, YEAH!!  My kids were at school for a whopping 2 1/2 hrs.  They basically go to church and then they’re done.   I will brag for a minute though, my oldest was announced during mass, unknowingly, that he is (among a few others)  a server’s (altar boy) captain!    I’m so proud of him!!

Since it’s a holiday weekend the hubby worked a half day which meant I got to sneak out for some thrifting…

This was Wednesday’s purchase.  It was only $75 which I was willing to pay but since they were taking silent bids, I figured what the hell, I’ll offer my lucky $50.  So imagine my surprise when they called me this morning to tell me to come pick it up…woo hoo!!

It needs to be placed a little better, but you get the idea.  Sorry for the dark photo, we haven’t seen a sunny day her for quite some time…


I bought this yesterday for my mom’s house…


I loved Danika’s brass lamp so much I had to pick one up…


That’s some major tarnish (left side).  I love brass polish…

I started at a flea market that’s not too far from my house.  They’re making slow progress getting it filled up but they did have a few good things…

I was seriously considering this for my kitchen.  It was only $50 (with a matching mirror) but the drawers didn’t open and close very easily, which is the problem with the one I have now…


I’d love to slap some paint on that chair and add a fab fabric, maybe I’ll go back tomorrow…$40


Another chair with uber potential…$30


This could look fabulous, but again the drawers…$40


Now, hold on to your seat…

$18!!  Wha wha what!!! 

I have absolutely no use for this but I should have bought it just for the hell of it…


Another great purchase for someone with a great house…$12!!!  See that white circle by the wheel barrow?  That’s the base…it was GY-normous!


I didn’t walk away from this sale empty handed…$7


I will be adding either apothecary labels or numbers to these little pretties, $3 each…I bought 3


Hope you all enjoy your weekend!  I’m hoping to get to a lot of projects, some fun… some not so much!

See you next week…

P.S.  If anyone is needing to get some painting done, Sherwin Williams is having a 30% off sale through Monday!

You find some really amazing things! I think I would have bought it all. And such great prices. I'm have to look at your other posts now to see what else you find.
