Not Trying Hard Enough

I cannot believe it has been so long since I have posted! I guess I am not trying hard enough to manage. Ha! I have been busy! VERY busy!!! Flea marketing, thrift shopping, and redecorating. I painted my hutch and think I h=may have made a mistake. What do you think?

This picture was during the LONG process. WOW!!! I never imagined it would take so long! 3 coats of paint and a couple hours distressing. ANd I am not even sure I like it! :-)

I saw this idea in a magazine. I have been looking for one for some time. Hubby and I celebrated our 6th anniversary in Branson with some DEAR friends! Nena actually found this gem for me! THANK YOU NENA!!!!!Found these 2 old windows for $4 each. One is single pane WITH the locks and handle! I cleaned it up a little and hung it in our kitchen to keep up with the girls' work schedule! It is cute...forgot to take a picture.

Now for my finds! Tool box $8, black wire plant holder $3, white cookie jar from Goodwill for $4, tin from Goodwill $2, white wire basket $2, decorading books ranging from $2-$4, rake $6 BUT 50% off.

Several primary gift bags from Target 75% off!! .25 each! And beach mats for outside .68 cents each!!!!! My hubby was looking for teaspoons and we found 3 and Nena found 3 more. (She is GOOD!)10 decorating magazine $2.00 for all!
The best finds of the day....antique fane $10 and antique scale for $10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH!!!
A view of my load! Not too shabby for a few days of bargain shopping!
I will post pics tomorrow of the items in their new homes!
