After the Snowmaggeddon we went thru this winter, I never thought spring would come! After some mild weather and rain it appears it has-
Chives are up
I let the chickens out this afternoon into the main backyard since it was about 60. They ran out the gate at a high rate of speed!
Spotted some wild bird food
They had a blast digging thru the wet soil
Grass is greening up
Our neighbor's cat (Princess) Posie, was watching the birds
Our (Empress) Anya, however took a nap on her favorite blankie, love her!
I went to Goodwill today with some donations. While I was there I bought five pairs of pants for Grand baby River, marked down 1/2 price, score!
He's getting big, and we babysat last night, what fun!!!
I also found a candle holder buried on a shelf. I had plans for that!
I also bought a small terracotta pot with faux blue flowers for my kitchen window sill, $1.99-
All about $13.00. Score!
Upcycled Dough Bow
I saw this bowl/candle holder at Goodwill for $3.99. When I spotted it what I saw was a dough bowl. It just needed some deconstructing. It is a heavy resin, whitewashed wood look. I tried to remove the screws at the base of the candle holders. No luck. I thought to look underneath the fabric on the bottom-
I removed the fabric and both the nuts with a small wench. Now it's ready to fill with some natural elements or vintage goodies, and the 2 holes won't show. So for $3.99 I'm happy. Someday I may get an expensive, wood vintage one, but this will do for now.
Farm-Style Pie Sign-
I had seen this farm-style sign all over the internet and Pinterest for a few years. I could never find one in the Cost Plus stores sadly. I wouldn't pay a lot of shipping for a $15.00 item, so I gave up. I went there to buy some teas today while I was in the area. They have a awesome collection of Twining's teas and great prices. While I was looking for something else I spotted the sign at their store! I couldn't believe it! I need to decide where to put it in the kitchen or dining area. I love the simple lettering and shabby, distressed edges-
I also found some more Slap Ya Mama Cajun sauce from my post 2 weeks ago, 1/2 price! I bought 4 jars., and 2 boxes of their Cajun rice/beans mix. Checking out the clerk asked me if I had a coupon and I said no. She said "I have one" and gave me 30% off everything! My $14.99 pie sign was $10.00. Score! Teas and food items discounted too. I HAD A GREAT SHOPPING DAY!
