I'm joining Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for Today's Thrifty Treasures, and Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday. Here they are in no particular order:
Up first. . . BOOKS! My little third grader is SO into reading right now. I just couldn't pass up these greats for him at .50 each.
Next comes this little goodie. We're calling her Ugly Bonnie (as to not copy from any well known television shows that may or may not be named something similar) I payed 7.99. I know, a little steep, but I knew that she wouldn't make it until 1/2 off day. Somebody else would have snatched her up by then.
The cute gal at the Goodwill checkout said, "oh, I've had my eye on this one for a while now."
She said (with a small tear in her eye) "you're going to paint it? I think it's perfect just the way it is."
I felt a little guilty. But not too guilty. After all, she looks so much better now. Not the gal, the treasure chest. . . silly :) I sanded it, painted it, distressed it, lined it with burlap and stenciled the number on the outside.
