What I Found Today!

Hubs told me to go have the tires rotated today for our drive down to California on friday. Now, I hate tire stores!! Oh, they're always super nice and have free popcorn available - all you want to eat. But it's the smell; I hate that smell!! But I did what he asked because I don't want to make my Love Bunny mad because I was on a mission today - TO SPEND MONEY!!! Serves him right for putting this chore on my shoulders, right?!?!

Well, squueeeeeeal, look what I found. The vintage looking towel holder - not sure if it is actually vintage, but it sure looks it - will do nicely in the guest bath. (Shhhhh, it's hidden behind that door now. He'll never notice! We KNOW this, don't we?!?!

Then the pepto-bismol shelf??? Oh, I love it, but I may paint it a lighter pink and then white and sand a bit to make it a bit chippy - chippier than it is actually.

Then the tablecloth........aaaaaah sigh, I have one already but I've cut into it to make pillows. It is my all time favorite tablecloth and I just love it. Well, imagine my surprise when they had one in this antique store today. My heart fluttered a bit and I calmly put it on the counter.....aaaaaacckkkkk, I just now remembered I forgot to take my camera to share this place with you little chicks!!!! What was I thinking??? Well, NOT thinking is more like it!! So sorry. I may have to go back just to take pix. It's nothing fantastic, but some neat stuff in there. Anyway, I bought the tablecloth and it will NOT be cut up. I intend to use it on my new white table!!

Oooh, did I forget to mention that I am definitely going to paint our bedroom and dining room oak table white??? Love Bunny doesn't know it yet and we're not gonna tell him, are we?!?!?! He has a trip to Orlando scheduled for august and it just might "turn white" during that trip!! Hmmmm, funny how those things kinda work out, huh??? But then we KNOW he'll never notice, right??!?!! Things have a way of working themselves out.....with a little help from the wife. *Chuckle* ;-) :-)
