I love this blue color!
Hello aqua!! SO CUTE! So 40 bucks!

This lady had AMAZING stuff...but she also knew what she was doing so it was priced high! Bummer!

Happy Pioneer Day!

Today in Utah it is a HOLIDAY! We celebrate the Mormon Pioneers. For doing what most of us couldn't do. Walking across the country!! I like showers and toilets to much to be a pioneer!! But Gosh I am grateful someone had the guts to follow their faith and make a home here in this dessert valley!!

I had this frame and print (a dollar each) in my bathroom..I got tired of it so it hung in the guest bedroom for awhile!

I found this IKEA print at the thrift store Monday for 1.00 .

I sprayed the frame (spraying in near 100 degree weather dosen't make for a smooth finish).

Put it back in the bathroom. So so cute!! Another dollar another project perfection!!

A little LOVE!!

One of the darling girls at the group home worked (on a hat loom) on this "HAT" for days and hours and even used a whole skein of precious of yarn..and then gave it to me!! It reminds me of a pink birds nest but gosh if we could only see all the love woven into this baby. It is bust'n at the seams!!

Not cuter!!

A new timing belt, water pump and some "belts" did nothing to make my cute car cuter nor more fun. $500.00 doesn't buy "cute in the "shop"!!

Just because your cheap DOSEN'T mean ya have to LIVE UGLY!!

Some people think there is only junk and flea ridden furniture at the thrift store. My sisters reported today "I don't have the patience". They are missing out!!

There were two of thee most DARLING DARLING (would be perfect w/ a little spot clean or carpet cleaner) Bassett chairs. Let' just for a minute talk about how much these retail for 999.00 ish.

This lamp is so loud and so far out of my realm...but I love the ruffle so I snapped a shot!

Another good chair 25.00.

My favorite DI is Centerville shhhh It is Mecca and will never disappoint!! today there antique section was busting at the seams!! I love this bike and this head board! They had lots of vintage Fisher Price a darling old type writer (I missed out on 3.00) just so much! There furniture section is Devine.

The point is. You can have nice quality stuff...and even antiques if you are in for a hunt!!


1. Making Memories Tag Maker Punch Kit 5.00 ( I thought I'd made a million dollar find...but alas NO. I will have fun using it..and then pass it on.
2. Daisyd's Scrapbook tags! 1.00 (for 10 packages of 4) (The tags will be included in the 200th post giveaway!! Be excited be VERY excited!!
3. A sweet metal water bottle that I have been eye'n at Old Navy till they ran out! 50.
4. A packet of white envelopes and note cards. 1.00
5. A pair of over prices Capri's (but I loved the color) 4.00
6. Two packages of pantie liners .50 (New and unused..and what the heck?)
7. A magazine .50 (my local thrift store has magazines for .10 I hate paying more then .10 for a magazine. How much does you store charge.)

Let there be Light!!

I have almost always hated the light fixture in my bedroom. It reminds me of a space orb.

I have loved these vintage old school house looking light fixture forever!

A dollar and a day at the thrift store...and Ta Da! They kinda look like cousins don't they? (I still have to paint out the ugly brass but you almost can't tell in the picture!) My little sister doubted me...I feel so relieved it worked out!!
