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!!!
