A Busy Monday

I hope everyone is enjoying the three day weekend. The weather couldn't be more perfect here, mid 70's during the day and cool at night, so we can open the windows at night.

And of course, no weekend would be complete, without a trip to Goodwill. This weekend I was on a mission to find fall items for decorating outside. I could hardly believe that there was sooo much to pick from. (I was told when I was paying that they had put out 3 tubs of Halloween/Fall items Friday afternoon and 2 more that morning. He said that if they have alot of Christmas stuff that they've been saving to put out shortly - WOO HOO!)

So anyway - back to ME - here's what I found!

Three pumpkins, $1 each

3 fabric pumpkins $1 each!

A cute scarecow -$3

Fabric turkey - $1

And here's my front deck!

And because Storm hung out with me all day - I had to get his picture taken.

Not a fall item - but I grabbed this creamer - $1

Glass jar $2

And even though summer is coming to an end - I snatched up this cute lady bug teapot..its so sweet..

Now it's time to show my Metamorphis and my Before and After...

Here's the wicker chair we got one Friday night at GW - many months ago. I immediately knew it would be white but DH said I should wait. Well I waited until Saturday - and I got out the white spray paint!

And here it is after! (Storm once again helping me - he was getting ready to lay down and take another nap!)

I got the rug on clearance at Shopko for $16 and the curtains from K-Mart (Country Living stuff is amazing).

Make sure you stop by to visit Rhoda and her Today's Thrifty Treasures Party,Susan and her Metamorphis Monday Party and Sarah at Before and After Party. It's always fun to see what everyone else has been up to.

Wishing everyone a safe Labor Day weekend.

I want the ladybug---darling!! Now I am wondering where you many bloggers have such great Good Will stores.....we live in a little ole poor town in SC and our Good Will just is not the crop of the cream (hmm I mean the cream of the crop)

Storm is a cutie! Isn't Goodwill the greates store on earth! Love that chair and I like it white. It looks great in that room. That fabric turkey is too cute. I'm determined to make some fabric pumpkins this year! I wanted to last year but got too busy.
