Yard Sale-ing

Yesterday I saw a MILLION yard sale signs and just had to go to at least one! All I had was $1 in my wallet so I was going to get the best I could for just one dollar:) I took Amaree with me so it was a lot harder than it sounds. Here is what I bought:
A yard of fleece, rubber duckie fabric for $0.25

This beautiful white vase/candlestick holder for $0.50
Amaree also got a Sponge Bob Square Pants action figure for $0.10 and a toy car for free (the lady gave it to her because she was "just too cute to resist".) So add it all up and it actually only came to $0.85. I am saving that extra 15 cents for next Saturday!:)

Inspirational pieces of furniture

This is my dream kitchen table and chairs. I love bright colors; I especially love these colors! The website allthingsthrifty.com even has a tutorial on how to paint/glaze the table as well as the chairs. This link will help you get there:) http://www.allthingsthrifty.com/2010/06/dining-room-table-transformation.html

First post ever!

Day 1 of my blogging adventures! I am so excited to officially have my own blog. I have tried a few blog sites but so far this has suited me best. I am still figuring everything out so please be patient with me:) I will soon be posting pictures and possibly tutorials of things I have crafted/created that I want to share with everyone. I have been trying a lot of new things as of late (craft wise) and have been enjoying every minute of it! I love creating art; whether its with a sewing machine, paint brush, wooden spoon or glue gun. So with all of this in mind, get ready for some fun, exciting new posts!
