Head Cold

While doing everything in my power to avoid my co-workers head cold. I washed my hands 20 million times, Stayed across the room from her, used 2.5 gallons of Lysol and made sure my sanitary bubble was intact! I sat down and took a big drink of water...only moments later realizing that glass I was drinking out of was MY CO-WORKERS!!! It was like putting a welcome mat out for the germs!! UGAH!!

As Big As A Bread Box!

It has been one of those days....I have a head ache, it is snowing and the water sprayer on the sink got a little wild and I took a quick shower and the kitchen got a hose down!! Sighhh!! A quick trip to the thrift store was in order!

I fell in love w/ "Bread Bins" while in the UK. I even bought on while there but it was to big for my luggage and alas it had to stay on the other side of the world! Today while walking down the rows and rows of stuff..I found THIS in all it's thrifted glory!! One dollar and 50 cents!

I envy the Swiffer that they have at work...but HELLO have you priced the refills and the cleaner?? WOWZERS! I like a newly mopped for just as much as another clean freak..but I'm not break'n the bank to clean!!

TA DA look what I got today for 1.75. The whole kit and caboodle! I'll just use my organic bathroom cleaner to spray the floor and then mop in glee!!

Happy Spring!

When I went to England a few years ago banners were all the rage there. I didn't get it. What was the big deal? Now I have a HUGE crush on banners and want to hang them from every possible place. I made this little spring lovely today! It reminds me that SPRING is just around the corner!! Thank Goodness!

Green Clean

I love and infomercial! Everything is so amazing! I've seen this little fella on TV many times...and thought "Wow what a blessing!! I need that!!" Today at the Dollar Tree I got one. It was FAB to use. It took all the hair spray build up on the drivers side car window (don't judge) off in a flash. It was totally worth a buck!! Just so you know!!

Mr. Blue Bird on my shoulder!

Last weekend I went to Pottery Barn. It was blissful! Last night I laid in bed and read my new Pottery Barn catalog! I decided I have "Pottery Barn taste on a dollar store/thrift store budget!"

I've seen these little Dollar Tree birdies all over blog land. I needed a new tooth brush so I too picked up a birdie while at the Dollar Tree! I just didn't love the color! I am more of a
kinda girl! So guess what I did?

Paint this little fella AQUA and polka dotted! I really believe all things are better w/ polka dots!
Happy Spring!

Do you know the time?

My .50 cent NPS flowers. Just a little spring eye candy!!

The girl at DI (local Utah thrift stores) giggled at the vintage alarm clock I handed her along w/ my .50 cents! See him w/ a sticker on his face?

Little did she know "he" had LOTS of brothers and sisters at home!! She'd laugh her guts out at this sight!

Home Sweet Home!

Yesterday I bought my very first home!! It is card board and only 50 cents...but I still love it!!

Remember the picture of the tulpis reaching for the sun the other day? Now they have to reach through a layer of snow too...A spring..what a joker!

Have a seat!!

I think Vanessa from V and Co. is pretty darn FAB!! She is creative yet cool. She yearned for a couch so I hooked her up it's the LEAST I could do!! When I of handily told a new friend Cami about the encounter she was star struck and said "She is like FAMOUS". I said "yeah I know" it was know big deal but knowing inside that I had basked in the light of greatness!!

I heart cookies!!

I don't make cookies often...If ya make cookies ya usually eat cookies! I found these at my favorite NPS for 99 cents a box and scooped them up. They have lots of good for you stuff in them and they are local! The best part is they are EASY PEEZIE to make and they are DELISH!! Next time I am adding cranberry raisins though. MMM yummy!!


It was one of those March
days when the sun shines
hot and the wind blows cold:
when it is summer in
the light, and winter in the shade.
~Charles Dickens

Look what I saw when I stepped out the door this morning! Little bits of green!! Reminding me spring is on it's way!!

I think I needs a vacation...I'm feeling a little wound tight lately!! Opps!! a little to much pressure??

"When I stand before God
at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not
have a single bit of talent left
and could say,
I used everything you gave me."
~ Erma Bombeck

Merry Marchmas!!

I'm not one to buy loadsa Christmas stuff..because it is so hard to store!! These buties called to me today and reminded me that they were only .50 each (next to the 32.00 each store price tag). They won out!!

"It gets the conners"

When I was a child we had a little red sprinkler!! We spent hours and hours running (running through the sprinklers) over and around the beauty each summer! It was like Disney Land to us. I found it's twin today...I just couldn't pass it by!

Here it she is in her new home. I think it is time for a bigger shelf!
