There is this one antique shop that my daughter and I love to visit, and they had some candles that they were selling from a small shop in a city not too far from us, say about 25 miles. Yesterday we decided to go over there as we were getting cabin fever, and purchase some of the candles from the shop since their website looked really interesting. The whole store was kind of 70's, but they did have a lot of candles. Now I'm all for supporting local small businesses, but their prices were double that of the antique store! That was too bad as I really wanted this one scent, but when they were higher than a national candle company I decided to wait and see if the other place restocked. So we left empty handed. On the way back home my daughter points out another Goodwill store. Oh yes! I told you they were popping up everywhere! She found one of those huge fake ficus trees for $7, and the cutest wicker shelf rack for around $5 for her office at work. I was hauling this around the whole store. This thing is huge and heavy.
Can you see the possibilities?! I thought that it would look so cool in my garden shed when we get it moved down the hill. I was so excited! A little over 5 bucks thank you very much! Then I spied the next two items.
The darling little birdhouse that I will paint, and then this gigantic tin thing that looks so cool. Of course, you know how it goes.....hey mom, if you don't want it I'll take it off your hands!
This so neat dragonfly I bought the day before. It has a little crack in the glass, but who cares? It will go outside either by my pond or the garden house. Ahhh, I love finding bargains. This bloomin' weather around here has been very windy and cold. Well, not so cold that you can't be in a warm spot from the wind. Oh! And guess what!! They are forecasting rain/snow for us on Tuesday!!! My oh my we definitely have some winter here in the south. Tomorrow is the first day of March, I wonder what it will bring?
