swooning....not drooling...


i've been shopping...



yes, somewhere other than french larkspur.....



i decided tracey needed a break from me ;0)....



though i'm not sure how much longer i can go....



{insert warning to tracey here}



i'm being brave....



sigh...



sometimes brave is not at all fun....



neither is being poor...



so....i went thrifting...




which is an hour away...



....yes, i live in the middle of nowhere....



i was such a bargain shopper....



i shopped the sales at the thrift shop....



i know....



me....sale....thrift shop....= filet mignon & shrimp dinner...



yum....drool....oh,



i've decided...drooling is so unlady like....



not at all attractive and sophisticated which a prairie girl should be ;0)....



so....i shall be swooning from now on....



i know....



much better....but....



it was a steak dinner after all....




so....drool....one last time....



....anyways....sorry....beef....yum....
{martha you must come visit me} ;0)



thrift shop...sale...$10.00 = dro..oh...swoon...



Photobucket

she is not much to look at right now....



but just imagine her covered in dark grey bliss...



no?....



how about drop cloth beauty...



look at her legs...

Photobucket

*love* those legs...{wish someone would say that to me...sigh}



have i mentioned i'm really short...





no...



oh. now you know...ssshhh...



...around the thrifty bend...this lovely...




Photobucket



my little one has a bed of her very own now...



...what?....oh, no, no, i didn't buy the mattress to go with it...



that was already on hand at our house...relief...



i couldn't pass on an antique cream iron bed for $30.00 could i?



now do you understand the need for a steak dinner...celebration...



she *loves* her new bed...while she did this...





Photobucket


i was able to do a little of this...



Photobucket

they should be arriving in the shop by next week...



along with some other goods...



also, next week is going to bring a little surprise to someone...



maybe to a lucky reader... :0)



we have to celebrate the passing of january don't we?!?



spring here we come!!




~p.s.~
thank you to everyone who left encouraging words and lifted up my spirits concerning a post earlier on...
you amaze me with your strength and goodness...
this prairie girl is so thankful to have friends who can listen and share...
*thank you*

Very cool! You have an eye and wonderful luck :) I also look forward to seeing what happens with your chair! Oddly, I just bought my teen an iron bed too! Now...just need the room to put it in.

Ok I'm wondering where you found this thrift shop?? Do you know something I don't? 1 hour away? I can only think of the DI?? That can't be! What are you hiding? I love that bed and the chair; the potential that baby holds. It was nice seeing you the other day at the kids ball game. Can't wait to see the chairs makeover. Lee
