Score More...

I have been dealing with kidney stones since Wednesday night... Completely out of commission... This morning feeling more human, decided to get some needed shopping done and some Goodwilling.... I hit the motherlode at Goodwill today! It's been a while...

My first purchase was this lamp shade, I bought it because I could feel a the frame underneath and plan to do this....

This lamp shade frame photo is in the studio of this creative lady... I LOVED the idea and had to get a shade of my own! I hope to someday meet her, she lives in my town and creates AMAZING jewelry!

Found this mason jar holder

music platter, I have the matching plate

Scored on this bedding, on line this quilt sells for $195.00
The dust ruffle $230.00

an Americana pillow, that will go in the boys room

Ikea curtain panels {HUGE, like sliding glass door size}
Love the fabric and think it would make a fun summer quilt and an apron or two!
Vintage sheet
Musical thing a ma do... I will paint and hang in a collage of other musical items!

6 fall napkins, do you see the ACORNS??
Circle lace doilie...
I had fun, and it was nice to move around with no pain...
Now, I MUST, MUST, MUST get my house into shape as the kiddos go back to school Tuesday!

love all the crzy home decor projects you have been doing. Painting a floor-really? YOu are way better than me. So sorry about the sucky kidney stones. They say that those are comparable to labor. Is is true? I am loving the lamp shade idea. I think that too will copy. What would we do without the blogging world to borrow ideas from and claim as our own when people ask where they came from. :) (maybe I just do this)

That bedding is beautiful! Love it!

Darlene said...

I have never had kidney stones but I hear they are quite painful. I am glad you are feeling much better.

You scored some FABULOUS finds at your GW store!!!!! Ours NEVER has anything that good! I LOVE everything!

I can't believe your kids go back to school so quickly. Mine starts on Aug. 19th.

Such great finds. I can't believe we don't have a Goodwill near us. I love the quilt and bedskirt, the Ikea curtains and can't wait to see what you make with them. It's amazing that those things look like they're new.
