weekend finds

Nice weather this weekend meant A LOT of shopping for me! I guess when it's cold I spend too much on coffee, and when it's warm, I just spend too much on everything! Although, according to me, it was a very successful weekend. Besides the things that I am going to show you, I also purchased three vertical canvases to paint a chevron pattern on to place behind my couch, a magazine rack that I will be most likely painting white, and A TON of paint! Nice weather = Painting in my eyes, and I can't wait!

So, it was perfect timing, because I had just read about how Barbara from Hodge:Podge created a burlap bulletin board. I loved the idea and the look of the new bulletin board so much, so I bookmarked the page under my "Projects" tab and kept reading. Well, on Saturday at my first garage sale of the season, I came across a whole 3 yards of burlap and it was the perfect color. Now, the best part is the price. A whopping $1.00 for the entire thing! Oh, how I have missed garage sales! So, this project is now on my immediate to-do list, thanks to this awesome find:

Then, I stopped at a local thrift store that I had just heard about and was blown away by how huge it is inside! I'll admit, thrift stores do scare me a bit, and I don't think it's really the things that I find there that scare me, but more the people. But, I pulled up my big girl pants and started digging. I found a lot of great things, including this ENTIRE roll of fabric in the same color as the other pillows that I am making. Best part = $6.00 for an entire roll. I haven't measured it out yet, but there has to be at least 10 yards. I am considering curtains. Has anyone seen curtains in this pattern before? I am curious.

Then, on Sunday, I stopped by the Goodwill to drop more clothes/junk off for donation and ran across this beauty:

Some of you may recognize it because it's at Target right now for $19.99. I got it brand new at Goodwill for $7.99. I couldn't pass that up. It is going to match my new bedroom perfectly!

I am going to have a lot of good painting posts coming up soon, now that the weather will cooperate with me, so keep an eye out for those. I also post all of my posts on my Facebook page, so if we aren't friends, you can find me here. Just send me a message with the request, telling me that you found me on here!

Talk to you soon!
