I have had the past 2 days off and yesterday I ran errands and went to GoodWill -- did not find much except for a brand new pair of Princess Reeboks size 10 for $4.99 --this is what I wear all the time, so CHA CHING I save some big dollars there. Then I found another thrift shop up the road from GW and it was really upscale but I did find a cute cup and saucer for 50 cents that I made into a bird feeder.
Today was stay and home and get some more planter chairs done, and that is what I did -- well at least until 4 when I went to the local church garage sale that started at 4 today :)
Here are the 2 chairs I got done today, I just need to touch them up a bit in the morning and then I am taking to the garden center tomorrow. I already sold 1 of my chairs there and I am hoping it will be a busy weekend, and maybe I can sell a chair or 2 more.
|I was going to make this an Americana chair but it just was not working out, so I added the flowers and dots and am pretty happy with it.|
|This chair I just love, it has red and yellow flowers and the stem ended up so cute curled up at the end.|
At the garage sale I picked up this cute planter for $4! I think I might be able to make some of these - I think I will try next week when I am off, need to get some wood -- don't think I am going to keep it there, I am going to put in on the wicker table next to the wicker chair to the left of the door. I will take a picture once I get it planted up and the wicker furniture needs a coat of paint this year and new seat cushions.
I manged to keep really busy today - it would have been my moms 91st birthday today, I went and put flowers on all the graves yesterday - so I know she is smiling down. Tough to believe she is gone 6 years at the end of next month - Moms are such special people. Happy Birthday Mom!
I hope you had a busy and productive day
