You can take me to the garden and leave me there for the whole day and I will be the happiest person in the world :)
I really enjoy the beauty of flowers, especially, in the Summer time. There are all variety of flowers in the Summer.
This past weekend our local botanical garden have free entrance. So, we took that opportunity to enjoy the garden without spending money. Good thing is not far from our house about 2 miles :)
I took lots of pictures and I will share them in this post. I hope you enjoy the as much as I do.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
I have been wanting to change our living room pillow covers that I have for over than 5 years. It was green with brown trim. When I went to Goodwill a couple weeks ago. I found 2 set remnant fabric for $.50 each. At time I bought it I didn't think about the pillows. I just interesting with the "ikat" pattern on the fabric.
I got home and put it on the pillow and amazingly the measurement exactly perfect for what I need to cover 2 pillows with the back in different fabric which I already have around. I used one set of the remnant and save the other one for another project.
I just bought a sewing machine from Goodwill Outlet Auction which still perfectly working for $5 what a steal. So, I used the machine to sew the pillow covers in about 10 minutes for both of them.
I really am happy with the result. This is such an easy project and cheap too, consider if you buy new pillows or covers at least you have to spend $15 for 2.
It has been a while since I last posted on this blog. I have been busy lately.
Today, I want to post my finds at yard sales this past weekend. I had some great finds...at least I think so!!
I read this ad which said " getting rid of my ex-wife's stuff " at first ... I was skeptical about but when we got there I was surprised to see all the stuff they had for sale. They were selling everything in the entire house ( literally ) I thought he just wanted to get rid of the old clothes or something that I wouldn't even want.
I got these votive candle holders made by Yankee Candle for $2 they are still in a good condition.
Four ice cream or dessert bowl for $2. I searched online and they sell at Amazon $9.99/4. So, I made a good deal with them.
I have been wanting to buy a rolling pin for a while and keep postponing it because I didn't want to pay the price. I feel so cheap to pay that much money for a rolling pin. So, I got this one for $1 and it was still new. The lady paid it for $7.95 I think a while back.
This picnic basket just to cute to pass up. Summer is here and I can use it for a nice picnic in the local park. I paid $1 for it.
I was happy with what I found with this trip. Moral of the trip never underestimate the title of the ad! you never know you may find the diamond in the mud :)
