As many of you know, I haven't been shopping or thrifting at all since money is quite tight right now. However, I have started my Christmas shopping and once I start that, I see all kinds of bargains and deals which then causes me to spend even MORE money!!
While out and about, I stopped at Hobby Lobby and Michaels just to see if their fall items were on clearance. Hobby Lobby was pretty picked over at 66% off.
I did find this acorn candle stand and candle. Together it was $8 with tax! Not too bad and I can move the candle around through out the year since it is a rustic brown color Michaels had the sunflowers on clearance for $3 and that little trinket box was $4. I couldn't pass it up. Not sure where or what I am going to do with it, but I liked it! The vase I already had from Walmart years ago!
Then I stopped at a few garage sales on Wednesday. Out of five sales, I only found something at one of them! That is usually my luck and why I don't take the time to do garages sales. However, when you do find a good one, the deals are usually worth the time!
Those little chandelier shades were $2 total for five. She gave them to me for .40 each instead of .50!!!! She had the scroll work planter for $1. I found the iron candle holder at the Goodwill for $2.
This pretty silver tray was $6 at Goodwill. It needs a little cleaning and maybe some layering in front of it but I couldn't wait to stick it in the china cabinet!!!
I was really tickled over this picnic basket from the garage sale for $1!! It is a little rickety but I figure it isn't going to be carried around and might look good in our bedroom
hiding holding my books to read!!
Overall, I think it was a good haul and I even bought a few Christmas presents. Can't show them in case family might read the blog!!! Probably not much worry in that! They think it takes too much time.

Okay, now that Mr.Creative is gone, time to get crackin on those kitchen cabinets. Today's agenda is to remove the cabinet doors and hardware, clean everything with TSP, patch holes in the ceiling from the old light and patch the crack in the wall. If time permits, I might even do primer on the doors. I am trying to pace myself so I'm not exhausted!!
Have a great day and wish me luck!!
