Roadkill Rescue - Meta Monday - Today's Thrifty Treasures

Monday's have become one of my favorite days of the week. No, going to work would not be a reason for Monday becoming one of my favorite days. It's because there are a ton of posts to read from Metamorphis Monday and Today's Thrifty Treasures. And also this week, there's another party going on - Roadkill Rescue!

So I'm going to start with the Roadkill Rescue & Metamorphis Monday portion.

When my youngest daughter left for college, she left this frame outside of her room in the hallway on the floor. (code for "I don't want this, you can have it")

It was already white, so we were already off to a good start.

I got our my scrapbooking paper and found four different size circles and drew each circle many times over and over again. But instead of cutting them out , I tore around each circle. After I had them all tore out, I crinkled them all up and then flattened them out. Next I glued each layer together and then glued two coordinating buttons on.

And here it is finished!

Yesterday, I grabbed this bulletin board at Goodwill and spray painted it white.

I added big buttons to the scrapbook paper.

And here it is after! Pretty darn cute too!

Now it's time for Today's Thrifty Treasures!

Thankfully, Goodwill was good this weekend and good thing since the past two weekends weren't haven't been much.

Check out this shabby chic valet - $2!

My daugher works for Wells Fargo and here's a beach bag I got her - I'll use it if she doesn't want it.

Check out these two duck tureens - I now have five!

I'm collecting stools to stack and found three this weekend.

How cute is this snowman?

Today, DH found this one for me - isn't it adorable?

And he also found this one for me, a rocking stool!

And a trip to Goodwill usually results in some books coming home with me.
This is a heavy book with lots of information - can't beat the price of $1 for a hardcover!

I once read that "Joy of Cooking" is a must have cookbook and I found this today!

And this cookbook should be a come in handy once Christmas gets closer.

Last but no least - I bought a brand new TiVo at Goodwill today for $10! (Sorry - no picture - I forgot.)

I'm addicted to TiVo, you can fast forward through commercials and go back and play it again if you didn't understand what was said...(I'm sure there's a better way to describe this)

Life is good, except that Monday is back to work...
