Rainey Days and Mondays Always Make Me Sad






Rainey days and Mondays always make me sad. Except TODAY! Connie took off today from work and we headed out to a Sales by Helen. The weather was so bad that all the schools here either, had a two hour delay or were cancelled. Well we thought about being safe and not going out, but, what idiots would go sailing on a day like today. OK US!! It took almost an hour to get to Helen's but was it worth it. We were not the only idiots out, but luckily alot stayed home. Did very well indeed. I found a cute little bookcase that needs some work, a wonderful koko clock, some Christmas items, and a few pieces of linen.

Well we thought we were done untill, we found a Goodwill, and nothing there. Now we are done. OK, not quite, on the way home we got detoured because of an accident and found another Goodwill. Hurray!! We did very well at that one. I picked up an old punch bowl trey in sandwitch glass and an old library card file. On the way out the door Connie and I saw this marble top coffee table. I wanted the legs, she wanted the marble, so we bought it. She will share what she is going to do with the marble on her blog. I made candle stick holders out of the legs. Came out pretty nice.

Hi Dona, I'm always on the lookout for linens and these are very pretty as is the tray. The candle sticks holder are fantastic....I think one of your neatest ideas. Have a great weekend...Linda

Hi Dona,
Good thing for detours. I love your comment about idiots being out but a lot staying in - made me laugh. Is the Super Bowl this weekend? Bet it would be good shopping time, everyone else is inside. Anyway, that's great everything you found! I've got to add you to my blog, I keep going through Connie's to get to you and back & forth...
Happy weekend,
Tracie
