Thrifty Tuesday on a Wednesday

Good Morning Fellow Friends!!  Hope this post finds you all doing well.  I am feeling rather chipper today which is a nice change.  I went for a follow-up appointment with my pulmonary doctor yesterday.  My blood pressure, pulse and lungs all sounded great.  I was told to increase my puffs per day on my inhaler and if I still feel great within the next 2-3 days then I can stop taking my prednisone (steroids).  Did you hear that ladies?  I might finally get some much needed rest/sleep.  I am so excited to get off those steroids.  It has done some really funky stuff to my system so it will be nice to quit those meds.  Anyway, I would say that for the most part….. I am feeling like my good ole self which is absolutely wonderful.

Let’s talk about feeling wonderful……

What makes you feel wonderful about yourself?  Is it your ability to find great thrift store buys at such a great price?  Is it your ability to make baskets, signs, furniture or stitch?  Well, I don’t know about you, but with this winter weather and not seeing much sunshine…… I have been digging into my wonderful world of crafting.  I have been a maniac lately with crafting especially since I was on a hiatus with being sick.  I went over 2 weeks with not doing any crafting and well in my world, that is unheard of.  I have made so many game boards over the past couple days.  It has literally been all about game boards here at my home.  I am just happy to report that my game board hallway is now complete!!  Yep, I have no more room for game boards in my hallway unless I wanted to hang them down at eye level with my 3 year old.  I am not sure about you, but I just don’t think that is a very good idea especially since he has been so rotten lately.  He definitely has a mind of his own and boy oh boy is that a challenge.  Anyway, I will post pics of my finished game board hallway within the next day or two.  Right now I am going to show you my latest thrift store find……. yep, tackling those thrift stores is another thing that makes me feel great!  Ok, ok I am just so happy to be feeling better so anything at this point makes me feel great!!  Ok, let’s take a look at my latest thrift store find…….


Yep, I found another light.  It definitely needs a make-over, but I am sure that within time, it will be prim perfect!!  I just need to add some black flat paint, a new prim lamp shade and it will be good to go.  So, what do you all think?  Great prim potential – dontchya think?

I wish I had more to share today, but I don’t.  I will however have pictures of my completed game board hallway tomorrow or Friday.  So, if you are interested then please be sure to come back for a visit.

Until Next Time ~ Blessings, Lisa

Thrifting sure is a "pick me up"!
I really like your lamp. If you hadn't noticed I have been a lamp fanatic lately. Everyone needs light!
Glad to hear the doctor gave you a clean bill of health!
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Fantastic news from your doctor Lisa. So glad to hear it and to hear you are feeling more like yourself again. Your new lamp is going to look great in black. I see it with a mustard and black shade maybe?
Enjoy your day,

I'm glad to see you are feeling so much better, you've been through alot! I love the feeling when you finally complete a project is such a rush! I guess we are all just prim junkies!

Lisa, it's good to hear you're feeling much better and able to get back to crafting and re-doing things. My SIL was on steriods for an illness that lasted over 6 months. I saw what it did to him and thank the Lord everyday that he is well again. I pray you never have to be on them again. Take care of yourself. It's a joy to visit your blog and read about your family and your wonderful TS finds.
Wishing you sunshine days!

I'll pray you'll continue to feel well and get off those steroids!

Glad to hear that you are finally on the mend and feeling better.
What makes me happy is knowing that my family is safe and happy.
I used to enjoy doing crafts and make-overs and still do once in awhile. I no longer feel the need to do things like that everyday anymore. I guess I'm getting old or something! LOL!
Have a great weekend!

So glad you are feeling much better! It sure makes a world of difference, doesn't it? When I'm not feeling very well I just think I will sit and stitch, but then I don't even feel like doing that. You have been on a roll lately and I'm excited about following your future craft journey! =]
