Shutter Island

So Mark and O went and see it this evening and well I would suggest to go watch it!

It is one of those movies that makes you think. Mark and I talked about which way we wanted to believe the whole way home. We both were believing the same way and I talked my way into believing the other way. LOL!!!

I thought it was going to be scary because they have advertised it to be but really it had like 2 spots that made me jump. I really would suggest seeing it though, well worth the time and the price of admission!

So I finally got my electric stove put where I wanted it and got it decorated! YAY me!!!!

I realize there is some stuff beside it. It is my sewing box and bag of emboidery thread! I love this little thing and have turned it on everyday since I bought it! The candlesticks are from the Goodwill they were $1.50 each with the candles which I am considering grubbying (is that a word?) them up. The light up house is from a local craft fair. I believe I paid aroun $12 for it. The blanket is one my Aunt Margie put together for me. I had bought the squares already cut at a thrift store and couldn't figure out the pattern so I gave them to her to do whatever with and she put it together for me and gave it back! What a nice Aunt I have!

Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend! I am not sure what I will be getting into, maybe some antiquing?! Who knows!

A Goodwill trip!

While I was out yesterday getting a few things before the snow hit I thought since I am right here by the Goodwill I have to run in! So I ran in real quick and boy am I glad I did!

I went in and found an old glass jar that I will show you later and a brown drip jar. My mom collects that stuff and it was only 50 cents so I got it for her. I think it might be missing a lid but no matter! Then I saw these!

As you can tell they have many prim possibilities! I think I am going to paint a black base coat and then maybe each a different color or should I do all the same color? Hmmm... I guess I'll get it figured out! I am going to use them for the canisters I have decided but I would love to find some primed up labels. Anyone know where I can find them?

Thanks for stopping by! I will show the other finds in another post!

Now I got to get back to cleaning. We are snowed in today so I thought I would clean most of the day! Later if I get everything cleaned I am going to reward myself by painting my boxes!

Lookie at what I got!!!

I am so excited!! I got to go out for a few hours this afternoon and do some shopping! I went out to do some grocery shopping but thats not what I came home with!

I went to Meijers and was walking around and thought hmmm last week they had their elctric fireplaces on sale I wonder if they have any left? So I started looking for them. I came to the back aisle and so one! It was the only one left in the store! I quickly called dh and asked if I could get it. He said yes!!! then he asked where are you going to put it? what a damper, I hadn't thought of that. so i got off the phone and stood there and thought for a minute. where could i put it? i thought of a spot but wasn't sure if it would fit. i walked around the display and this is what I found

It really isn't that bright this is with the flash. Also don't mind the stuff behind it I just got it put together and was so excited I didn't pick the stuff up! I also forgot to remove the tag from the door in my excitement! Ooops!

Here it is without the flash
Once I get it to its permanent home I will take more pics and post! I am going to do it tomorrow because it is almost 2 am and I need to go to bed!

Night all!!

I found it!

I found my memory card for my camera before I went out and bought a new one but I didn't find it till this morning and we have had a crazy bust day, well actually all weekend. We got to pick up Marks new Blazer yesterday and we also had to do some shoe shopping for Jakob amoung a few other things! So tomorrow when I get a few minutes I will post some new pitures!

Sorry for the delay!

Sorry it has taken me forever to post anything. I was going to post the pictures of my thrift store finds and well I took the memory card out of my camera and now I can't find it! LOL I have all of my pictures that were on the card saved to my computer but not the ones of the thrift store. I am going to go and search some more but if I can't find it I will only be able to take a few at a time because my camera has very little internal memory! So it may take a few posts to get everything on here. LOL. I am trying to use this as an example not to take it out unless it is to take it to get the pictures developed. I am going to search this evening and if I don't find it I will take a few at a time and start posting the slow way!

Thrifting results

Well after an eventful start to the morning, my younger sister who still lives at home with our parents, passed out in the kitchen this morning before my mom left to come to my house to go to the thrift store. My mom called and said she wasn't going to go because she wanted to stay home with my sister in case she needed anything. Totally understandable. So mark, the kids and I decided we would go before we had to have Summer to her Girl scout night hike. We made it to the thrift store and it was ok but nothing that I would drive that far again for. I founf a cross ( I collect crosses), a small oil painting, this great primitive skillet thing ( I'm not even sure what to call it), a bedskirt for my bed, and a peg shelf.

We came home and I decided I was going to clean out my van because well it was nasty, I hadn't cleaned it in awhile because it has been to cold. I even swept it out and added some scatter rugs because with all the squish we have there was a ton of mud getting into the carpet. I made it home from sweeping it out and got Summer ready and bundled up for her hike. We got her dropped off and we decided to run to town because we needed to get a few copies of some stuff.

Since Officemax is right beside the Goodwill I had to go in! LOL I'm glad I did too! I got an old oil lantern, a primitive gameboard,the cutest little chair, a shirt, a cute picture, and something else but I can't remember what it is right now. LOL Its been a long day! LOL

so instead of taking pictures of everything before I get it where I want it and then take pictures. I am going to work on everything tomorrow. I am hoping to have alot of the day tomorrow dedicated to getting all of my recent thrift store finds put where I want them. I am supposed to take the kiddos to my moms tomoorw to play with my neices and nephews but we shouldn't be gone to long so I can work on the house and Dh needs to work on a few projects outside while we are having this warm spurt! LOL

I am freezing now so I am going to go and cover up and watch a little tv before I go to bed!

Goodnight all!!!
