This past Saturday was Beckie and Sarah's Goodwill Hop n' shop. It was a blast! I met many new women, awesome women, with blogs of their own. Gail from My Repurposed Life even drove from as far as Louisville! THAT is awesome.
Lunch at Bucas was fabulous. They were even great about my food allergies. Our swag bags rocked. I have already used my 3M painters tape- though not to paint, lol. My sons wanted a circle for playing marbles on their floor... I also won a $10.00 gift certificate from Goodwill! ME! I never win anything!
Here are some photos from the event.

Is that parrot not the most hideous thing you've seen today????? No- Kelly didn't buy it. But we DID put it up on the highest point we could find for all to see...
A small vintage Syroco mirror-perfect for our room once some Heirloom White hits it
A broken lantern to be turned into a cloche
Thsi thing was SO
trashy brassy that my flash kept bouncing off of it like a prism!
Imagine her white... So pretty for spring!
A trash can for our master bath remodel.... Again- WHITE she shall be!
Isn't this plate PURTY?! I think it will hang on our bedroom wall.
I also scored 3 pairs of brand new shorts for my boys- 3 denim, 1 levis and 1 Sonoma, and 1 adorable plaid pair for Quin from Tar-jay. I love getting NEW shorts for $1.99- especially Levis!
I found several blouses for myself- 1 from Express, 1 new from Charlottle Russe, 1 from New York and Company and another new one from Tar-jay. I thought there MAY have been a fight over it if it didn't fit me. Girls were lining up. Alas, it fit and the cat fight was avoided. I brought home an adorable tube top for summer, and a Nine West bright yellow, show me some spring shirt that needs some chunky jewlery to go with!
Why no fashion show you ask? Because I cleaned today and have not showered and am too vain to do one without... Sorry. Just trust me when I say that I scored some GREAT deals!
My neighbor Ali
Seriously gals! It was nuts! I am so glad she scored such a great piece, and cannot wait to see what she does with it.
On another note the night before our Shop n hop I was working on this
A hand painted pillow knock off of Pottery Barns pillow.
For $49.00 plus shipping I decided to make it myself!
Gotta love the stash in my white dresser and computer room closet!
I printed off the font in the size I wanted and just traced onto my fabric with a quilting pen, then handpainted it. My 3 year old kept bumping the table in his desire to watch, but it turned out okay. I then stuffed the cover with a pillow form I had lying around. Free. Free. That way when I get sick of it i don't feel bad swapping it out, or pawning it off on
Megan someone else.
It was a great weekend, and I do hope to get to know some of my new bloggy friends better.
I am linking up to Lindas Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays ladies- new frinds- join me!
