College Diva headed back up to NAU for the spring semester. I have to tell you, it breaks my heart when she has to leave, I enjoy our time together. Though this break we really didn't do as much as we have in the past, spent it mostly resting and recouping.
I made a plan to head out to yard sale on Saturday...then decided it was too nice snuggled up next to hubby. We rarely get time together as he works two jobs and we only have Friday night and Sunday nights to hang out.
He took me to one of my favorite places to ea on Friday night, Chevy's. I am addicted to their salsa! We rarely eat out so this was a real treat for the two of us to have drinks and dinner. I don't drink often, so when I do I make sure it's something tasty, and the Cadillac Margaritas were yummo! Probably had a bunch to do with me not getting up early to yard sale!
After hubby went to job #2, I put some things in the back of the car to donate to St. Peter's Thrift Store. On the way there I found a couple of sales.
Here's what I picked up.
Yep. Rusted Fleur De Lis! Saw this from my car as I pulled up. Held my breath (need to stop doing that, before I pass out on someone's drive way)hoping it was in my price range and NOT already sold.
It was attached to this.
I headed over to St. Peter's to drop off my donations and picked up a couple more lovelies....
I saw this propped against the fence as I was walking in with donations. I pried the $7.00 price tag off and headed in to pay for it. The lady inside said she took it home but brought it back because it was too long for her space. Woot Woot!
I am going to paint it a darker sage green, to match my decor. For now I have it hanging in the kitchen until it finds where it wants to reside.
In the back of the thrift area I spied this lovely on the wall. Of course, I had to dodge a few bins of records and 8 tracks, push past a few racks of clothes, but she was MINE. I even stayed horizontal (this is the thrift store that is carpeted in ASTRO TURF) and didn't have to shove anyone out of my way to get to this.
Not too bad of a haul considering I got up late and had no intention of yard saling or thrifting for that matter.
Great use of Christmas cash!
à bientôt, mon amies...
