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!!
