Two reasons why I haven’t blogged…but I did find some time to thrift this weekend….

Here are my two reasons for not blogging much lately:

1. Facebook – I opened up an account and found a dear childhood friend and connected with siblings and lots of others – it has been a blast ! Also I am doing Farmville – the game and it is addicting.. Also I have discovered that most people on Facebook could care less about blogs…they just don’t know how much fun we are :o)

2. Carpet cleaning – being frugal like I am , I rented a carpet cleaner and did all my carpets and sofa set and 2 vehicles….I just finished – Yeah Me !

When I returned the carpet cleaner today , I went to two thrift stores and here is what I found. Now I don’t normally show pictures of undid things but, I am missing all of you and had to post something :o) !!

Chippy table for $ 12.99 – I am thinking about leaving it chippy – it is really neat ! Such a cute size too – taller then a night stand – more of an occasional table of sorts..

Metal cake holder..I have been looking for one that is not dented because I have seen beautiful ones painted white with roses…what do you think ?

This little table was $ 4.99 and missing the drawer..I will paint this one and maybe add a basket for a drawer….

A bundle of blue fringe – three types for $ 3.99 – perfect for tassels.

Silver jewelry box for $ 5.99 it is real silver !

Framed mirror – I will paint this one too….

Gallon sized jar – I love these and want more !! It was $ 4.99

I know, I know…you are thinking Kammy  -what do you see in this ? Well you will have to wait and see – It was $2.99.

The next item was sitting upside down in the furniture section and of course I had to pull it down and see what it was. It can be used for so many things …my mind is going crazy on the best use, for this sweet baby….take a look-see !

You found some great bargains. I saw one of those gallon jars at a flea market last week and they wanted $15 for it. I thought good luck with that. I can go buy one new for less than that. Love the little tables you found.

Shelia said...

Hi Kammy! I have missed you! How wonderful to find a long lost friend. I go to Facebook almost every day and have found lots of school buddies and others I've lost track of through the years.
I love all of your finds and know you're gonna make them lovely.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Can't wait to see what you do, Kammy. I've been reading over some of your past posts and you've been a very busy bee. I'll be back, for sure.

I fully understand re: facebook. I gave it up for Lent and have so enjoyed my return to blogging moreso that I haven't gotten back into the FB scene. I was addicted to Farmtown. I deleted my account, it was so darn consuming...
I LOVE all of your finds!! What a great shopping day! Congrats. I can't wait to see what you do with it all...

Glenda/MidSouth said...

The Little Red Shop said...

Sweet finds! And I know what you mean about Facebook friends and blogging. They are totally into Farmville though...I play it too. My poor t.v. It must be getting very lonely.

Have a beautiful week!

Kammy -
I LOVE the chippy table! It is too stinkin' cute! I have a couple of the gallon jars and always on the look out for another one. Between baskets and the jars, I don't know which one I love better for storage. The jars because you can show off the contents and the baskets because you can hide the contents :)

Farmville IS addictive!!

Love your stuff, especially that table! And the frame. You cant go wrong with glasware like that either. I can totally picture that green thing with a paint job!

You found some great stuff!

Can't wait to see the finished projects.

Kim said...

Hey Kammy! It's good to have you back. I think I'm the last living soul on the planet that doesn't have a Facebook. It certainly sounds like fun. I do enjoy my blogging though. You found some great stuff! I especially love those two tables. As for the first one, I agree not to paint it, just leave it chippy. And the second one - can't wait to see that painted with a basket drawer!
xoxo,
Kim

Sherri @ Design2Shine said...

I love reconnecting on FB and I also 'farm'...although I am blogging more these days. It's a back and forth thing. Maybe ADHD?! LOL Your thrift store finds are AWESOME! LOVE both of the tables. And that huge glass jar. Want.one.now.

Denise Marie said...

Janean said...

$12.99?!!?!??!?! Dropping by from Rhoda's.

Krista@thegatheringplacedesign said...

Oh, I love all your finds! I am laughing because I found the little sister to that green thing with the lid you found for $2.99. I am going to show a before and after, but you can see it here painted out displayed on my mantel. My daughter thought I was nuts when I bought it. ;)

I can't wait to see what you do with yours :) and all the other treasures!

You had better get busy because we are waiting.
And quit playing farmville when you have real life, sort of, friends here waiting for your next post.
