It's been a crazy week with kids...I'm exhausted and plain worn out. Having 5 kids is hard work! LOL McKale is growing fast and I wanted to include a new picture of him wide awake. Such changes in 7 weeks. Yep, he's 7 weeks today!
I had a little time to junk last night. I went to a few thrift stores. I found a set of 4 white and somewhat chippy shutters. They were $2.99 for the set of 4. I can't beat that price. One set I'm keeping and the other set will go to the shop. I found some garden gnomes to sell. They're not my thing, but I know some people really like them. I also found a iron candle thingy that's unique (and heavy). That will get painted white and probably go out on my back deck. I also found the sweetest girls dress in the Goodwill bin. It is from the early 1900's and so darling! And at $1.30 very affordable. I also hit a few garage sales today, but mostly kid junk. Something I don't need more of!!!!!!
I'm slowly working on my outside deck to make it a small oasis for me to enjoy. I'm including some pictures...not quite done, but getting there. I found the awesome doors and green shutter screen at a garage sale last weekend. It was $25 for the set of doors (came out of a bar) and $12 for the screen. I think I got a good deal...the doors are so unique and have a hint of green coming out from the chippy cream paint on top.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
