The kids and I picked up Matthew from a friends home after the retreat. We went to a nice dinner at Ruby Tuesday then went to Meijer to find something I had been watching to go on sale even further. It had the last time I was there but I didn't get it. Well, it was gone and I was really bummed. Matt told me that it's ok and that something better would come along.
Fast forward 20 minutes later. I decided to go to Goodwill to see if I could find any linens, wool sweaters to recycle or anything else fun. Not quite 2 weeks ago I found the most beautiful picture with an old, antique frame. It was only 24.99 but I still didn't want to spend that on it. I had gotten my items to purchase and while in line looked across the other side of the room and there it was! I had looked earlier but it wasn't in the same place it was before. Since I knew I couldn't reach it and it was closing time, I asked the cashier if someone could see if it had a purple tag since purple tags were 1/2 off. The 30 seconds it took them to get it down seemed like minutes. Then I heard these beautiful words "it has a purple tag". Needless to say I was incredibly excited. So for a total of just over $23.00 I got the following:
The gorgeous picture
2 Pottery Barn shams - gorgeous dark colored floral - vintage looking
1 full sized sheet(like new) to complete my set for making my daughter a futon cover
1 gorgeous hair scarf - black background with floral design
2 dvd's for Matt
1 vhs for Matt
Needless to say I'm so excited! Now I'm off to get the camera and take a picture of my newly boughten picture so you can see it for yourself.
On the left side is a floral and striped print in reds. Those are the shams. Up on the top center/right is the sheet for Lyshie's futon cover I'll be making. The other sheet we have here to use for the cover is plain lavender.
Sorry about the flash - I still haven't cleaned it either. Isn't it gorgeous!
