Then I was off to my local Goodwill store and look what I got... My very first firkin for $2.00...Sure it's missing its lid (and believe me, I searched those shelves for the lid with no luck), but I figure I can maybe make one...any advice on that ? I cant wait to paint and distress this gem ! I hope it's the first of many. I know they are pretty expensive and you all kow how frugal I am so I was doing the happy dance when I spotted this one !
Next, a short walk across the parking and I was at one of my all time favorite places.. Habitat Humanity Restore where I got all this paint, stain and sealer...All the quarts are very similar shades of cream, so I will probably mix them together for one even shade. I got an almost full gallon of the best shade of a colonial blue...for $1...How cool is that ? I also got 2 almost full cans of gloss sealer ...lots of projects ahead for me.
I also picked up some vintage kitchen tools ...total cost at Habitat ? $8.00 AWESOME DEAL
Then once I came home and was trying to find new places to store all my goodies I found something I had completely forgotten about. This child's easel style chalk board was my grandmothers and I had forgotten that my mom had given it to me last year....it got put in the corner of the basement with some other projects that need a little work and I completely forgotten about it.
Speaking of weather....we finally got SNOW in western Pa. Hooray !!!! I absolutely LOVE winter, well I actually LOVE all the seasons and having 4 distinct seasons, so I am a happy girl even if the snow put a little dent in my plan to do more thrifting today (I dont like to drive in the snow folks...its a great day to stay indoors and work on projects). I had almost decided to put away all my snowmen the other day since it has been unseasonably warm here.
I picked up some pieces of linoleum awhile back and i am thinking of trying my hand at a few floor cloths...I will let you guys know how they turn out.
Well, I am off to start a few projects. Have a blessed day.
Until next time...
Grace to you,
