Thrifty fun !

I have found so many fun things at the thrift stores lately ! I just had to share it! Yesterday I went to Metro Thrift over in Lawrenceville (since Mondays are 1/2 price everything!) And I found some of that really nice lighted garland for Christmas . I can hardly wait to try it . Will it go on the porch , the mantle ? Down the stairs ?? So many options ! I also found a cute mini-tree that I will probably put in the bathroom or kitchen . Plus 2 bags of ornament ball so I can try one of those lovely wreaths that I keep seeing ALL over blogland. :-)
I am currently plotting my fall decorating ! Since I can officially implement it at the end of this week ! WooHoo!! I love autumn ! It is my favorite season, hands down !
So ... what have you found lately ?
I will try to post pics as soon as the Christmas season decorating is upon us. :-)
What fun !!

Friday update

Well ... here my progress report. I did get most of the furniture swapped around. (one table to go) . I got the shelf moved from one side of the dining room to the other. I even got some cereal boxes in it . I also put my desserts on it . And since I found brownie mix on sale at Publix a couple weeks ago for 2 for $3 plus they had a coupon for $1 off if you bought 2 that made them a dollar each ...so naturally I bought about 6 ! LOL
I posted ads for the rug and pillows and the dishes. I so want them to go away ! I may even give them away if they don"t sell quickly. Pray the sell , it supports my thrifting habit . LOL
I am working on clean up so my hubby doesn't freak out over the mess. Poor thing. God really had a sense of humor putting us together. I can step over piles and let laundry go until there's nothing left to wear. It all drives him to distraction. I try to meet him in the middle . Not sterile, but not hazardous either.
The new arrangement opens things up and the first thing I noticed is , I had been able to hide my dining room . But not now !! So I have allot of work left and I better get moving on it !
Just wanted to put a progress report out there ! :-)
Blessings , Lora
