Friday Finds

Did you all hear that loud squeal?  Well, if you heard it then you know it was me when I went to the thrift store the other day and found something that I feel has lots and lots of potential.  Yep, I stood there and just looked at it and thought about what I could do with it and then finally I snatched it up and walked to the register.  Now that I think about it….. I forgot to look at the rest of the stuff .  Well, hopefully I didn’t miss out on anything else.  I was pretty happy just to find this and the cutting board.  So, are you ready to see the 2 items that I picked up last night?


Did you all seriously think I would pass up another cutting board?  Well, I couldn’t pass it up.  I tried and walked past it, but then my legs went in reverse and my hands reached out and grabbed it.  So, I am gonna have to re-do it and prim it up a bit.  The color isn’t bad, but I am not into shiny paint so it will have to be sanded and re-painted.  What a shame – huh?  My next item that I am going to show you is definitely far from being prim, but like I mentioned before…. it has great potential and before you know it, it will be prim perfect!

Ok, are you sitting down? 

Brace yourself……. Here it is ladies!!


Are you squealing yet?  Just seeing that picture alone gets me all excited (lol).


Who is that squealing?  Janene ~ is that you?  It must be someone close by because I hear it loud and clear.  Whoops…..hahahaha, that is me squealing me!!  I am such a silly girl.


So, are you seeing what I see?  Do you see the potential?  Let me just tell you this first…… the little shades definitely have to go!!  Next we will be painting it because you know that it wouldn’t dare be hung up in my kitchen looking like that – right?  Oh and next….. we will definitely need to add some different light bulbs.  Don’t worry, it will all work out in the end and you all will be amazed by yet another great transformation.

I am off to visit my parents one last time before they move.  We are headed to pickup Mom’s light fixtures along with a few other goodies and I will get my last shopping trip in before they move.  I can hardly wait til they get back here close to us.  What a day that will be!!

I am leaving you today with this cute little clown that we saw last night while trick-or-treating.  He was so stinkin’ cute!!  Oh wait… was my son.  Well, I hope you enjoy this sweet little face as much as I did yesterday.  I could have just ate him all up (lol).  Take Care everyone and enjoy your weekend.

Happy Halloween!

That cute little guy is certainly adorable! How proud you must be! I love the light fixture .....I can envision it now. It's going to be great! It will be so nice for you and your family when Mom and Dad live nearby. I know...I loved my Mom and Dad near to us.

Take care, Lisa.

Wonderful.... I wonder how crazy it is to be thinking if I worked at TS, I could find all of the good stuff first. Congrats on the great finds!!!!

Hi Lisa, First of all Cameron looks adorable. I can see what are you thinking about the chandelier, I had one of those in my DR. We changed it for a different one, but I have it waiting for a makeover. I'm not sure yet what I will doing with mine, but I will use it when I change the light at the top of the stairs. Can't wait to see your makeover.Please, share your pictures.
