I bet y'all were thinking you might get to see the finished table. Well, if you know me by now, you would know it might be a while before you see it again!! As in, it took me a few years to start it, it might take that long to finish it.
I got to go yard-saling and thrifting Friday. I was looking for a bookcase, but instead found what you see pictured. The milk crate(?) was $2 and we will use if for blocks. I went to an antique shop Friday afternoon and saw a similar one for $39.99. I would say that I got a deal!! I also got that cute rose print fabric for 50 cents a yard and have about 5 yards. The fringe I got for $5.00 total and it is about 7 yards. I am going to try my hand at tassel making a la Susie and Nester. I love theirs and would totally buy one if I didn't think I could do it myself. For some reason I feel bad saying that. Susie has a squirrel that I think needs to come live here, but when I emailed it to my mom she said, "You're not going to buy that, are you? You are crafty enough to make it yourself!" So, blame it on the mom...Sorry girls. I also have a 'thang' for embroidery hoops(not that I know how to embroider) and pick them up when I see them. And the rooster basket will hang on the fridge and hold coupons. Thursday night I got a super cute cottage-y mirror that I plan to paint the frame of and paint the mirror with chalkboard paint. Forgot to take a photo of that, but I will, along with a photo of its metamorphosis.
Jackson has been asking for a croquet set and we finally found one at a church thrift shop for only $2!! Today, he and his Daddy got to go out and break it in.
That's all I have for now!! Hope you all have a great Sunday night!!
