Grand total was $35. In addition to what you see in the picture, there was a pair of Sonoma jeans for minion 2, and 3 shirts for me. More on one of the shirts later.
I have achievable plans for everything here.
The arm chair tray will get a coat of paint to match my tray and be of use during family movie night, or when I'm stitching.
The airplane picture frame will go into Minion 3's room..it's metal and the propellers actually spin..So cool!
I go through so much stitch witchery that it isn't funny, so I will put it to good use and the tiny package is actually a pair of joints for a jointed monkey I plan to make soon.
The spindles and finial are for wreath hangers.These metal containers seem to have been made for herbs (there were originally from world market and marked at $3.00 a piece, I scored these babies for $0.90 each!!) But I will use them for glitters and beads.
And the glass globe was originally for a porch light or similar, but I have an idea for it that I will share with you after the weekend.
I love the pebble like texture of the globe.
And this wasn't part of the thrifting haul, but it didn't arrive until today, Hubby knows just exactly what to give a shopper for any occasion...Guilt free shopping!
With my Valentines mad money (Thank you again Honey! SMOOOOCH!) I/Bill got me this really cool vintage magazine rack..Which will of course get a nice new coat of....., Well, I haven't decided that yet lol!
It's double sided, and the plan is to keep my Country Living magazines (from the new subscription that I/Bill also got me for Valentines) and softcover crafting/needlework books close at hand and showcased here.Love it :)
I will never be "skinny", I will never be like many of the young little petite bloggers that I follow, nor would I want to. I am too big. I'm 5' 6.5" tall, and even right after Highschool when I *wasn't* overweight, I couldn't wear the same clothes as the rest of the girls, my frame is just too large. I couldn't (and still can't...now I'm allergic LOL) even wear bracelets, watches or anklets without special ordering them.
