So, there was an Estate Sale today across the river and my sister said she would probably pass on it but I had to go because... I took Thursdays off to go!
I'm SO Happy I went! Here's some pics of what I got-
First off is the painting, it's in the photo at the beginning of the post. Well, the actual painting is not my style but I LOVE the frame! AND I've been looking for just the right one for my print of my Skelly that I got from Pam aka http://yoborobo.blogspot.com/ it's perfect and it only cost $5.00! The quilted little blue blanket below it cost $4.00 and I'm going to use that in my car for Blue to lay down on. Then I found these for my little dogs, I thought they would make good dog food dishes and they cost 25 cents a piece!
and this was $1.00
and this for a water bowl - $3.50
and this was$2.00, I think it will go into the kitchen and hold "something" that I will find...
and this was $2.00 and I'll use it as a reed diffuser -
and this pot was $1.00 and it will replace the one I accidently broke, it will go outside on the front steps (when if finally warms up!) -
and the grand total came to $18.00! Waahoo!!!!!
I was on a roll so I drove over to Lowes and found 2 gallons of mis-tinted but quality paint in just the right "mocha" color I've been thinking about. They were $5.00 a piece and then I also got 2 quarts of mis-tints, one a creamy color and the other a grey for $2.50! My color scheme in my house is white, and more white and more white and then brown, black, gold, silver. All the walls on the main floor are white and I've been thinking of painting one of the rooms a Mocha, most likely the kitchen, but maybe not. Maybe the bathroom. The bathroom is already a brownish but it has this god awful border in there ( I have no idea why I put THAT up) anyway it needs repainting. Goodness, it sounds like I have a BIG house, but I don't. It's a VERY tall but VERY skinny house, really! Many people have commented on the fact. When I say skinny, I'm talking 15 feet across! It's kinda odd but I love it, it's different, it's like someone said, hey I bet we could squeeze a house in there!
So then off I went to Target! and I found this perfect doggie gate for the bottom of the stairs. I needed something because the little ones kept running up there and getting into no good. A regular baby gate just wouldn't fit properly between the wall and banister and it looked so ugly! So I had this thought and what do you know! They were on clearance! for $9.98. so here's the doggie gate -
OK, so you might be saying "that's a fire screen"! but the little ones don't know that. They just walk up to it and look at it and walk away! And it's pretty.
Well, that's enough gloating for now, I'm off to figure out what room to paint.
Oh, and guess who I ran into at the Estate Sale? My sister! Scammer.
