About Me

I have always considered myself to be a creative person, and I LOVE to scavage thrift stores, junk stores and Goodwill looking to fulfill that obsession!! It really is an obsession, you know what I'am talking about!! LOL

To Skrimps or not to Skrimps

Yesterday, my sister and I went to the Gulf Shores Shrimp Festival.  We both have lived round these parts for-ev-a, and have never been.  What bad Southern girls we are! It was hot, but, not as hot as it could have been.  I had just been sick as a dog the day before..(Friday), So I wasn't up for any skrimps...so I opted for a yummy fresh made funnel cake.   I still wasn't feeling too good...but, I was determined to go this year..especially since I had missed all of the Texas and Minnesota stuff.  My youngest son went with us, of course he was not the least bit thrilled to be there..especially after hearing some Buffet style music, so, he decided to thank me for it by vomiting on both of our shoes.  I had sandals on.  He had just ate a McDonalds happy meal, and it didnt make us happy at all.  Shortly there after...we left.  But, at least now I can say that I have been to the Gulf Shores Shrimp Festival!!  They had lots of expensive food and craft items...high dollar craft items...like paintings and stuff.  We left only with a bag full of our own shoes covered with vomitus.  Fun Huh????

My Small Attempt.....

At Fall decorating:
I found this iron tea/flower cart on the side of the road..I painted it, it was black.
This is a old Ice cream maker can, filled it with lemons (fake), a twig, and hung my handmade handprint on it.

My front door with a jackolantern wreath I got on clearance for 2.00 last year.

Got this kitty on clearance too!  The basket of fake pumpkins and gourds and old flash cards, inside the foyer under a table. 
This folks sums up my hallo/fall decorations for this year!!

I know, Iam one bad blogger....I have had a sick kid, trying to gather up more junk for my huge inside the house sale, selling on e-bay..(almost got that table paid for), and a visit from my oldest son,..I could keep on. 
Anyway, I wanted to show you guys a couple of awesome things I have found recently.

Some old English Ironstone and old atlas jar from the monthly estate sale. $1.00-$3.00
This vintage collapsible basket from Goodwill for 1.79, and these old paint brushes, from e-bay, for 4.99 plus 10.00 for shipping!
This cool iron urn/cache pot from Southeastern Salvage for 8.00.  (probably will paint it)

I soooo wish you could see this up close!!  Its a Family Record/Tree.  The earliest date on this litograph is 1758 and the latest is 1888.  This is by far my best find ever!!  It was only 15.00 framed, at the estate sale! 

Hope you all have been good...I have more stuff, and will get it posted soon!!
