SCORE!!!!

So Saturday Zeke, and the lovely Gloria and I had a short but fun and fruitful adventure in 2nd hand land! I have FINALLY settled on a decor I want to go with for the house and so I've started in on slowly, slowly changing things around and adding things as I continue with the clean/organize/purge I've been working on since the beginning of the year.

First up we went to Goodwill...and I scored this little black frame...it was kinda cute but plain matte black but I decided to buy it and see if I could rough it up a little. (sadly I forgot to take a before photo.) Anyway, the sanding turned out VERY well if I do say so myself and I'm loving the finished result! The picture is of Kessa outside in out first snowfall of the year and the stamp I used for "happiness" is from the Stampin Up Warm Words set.


Total Spent: $.49...that's right...less than two quarters!!!! WOOHOO!!!!

Next (and last) stop was at this great little local place called Vintage Collections...I got a ton of great ideas there...and also found some stuff I'll probably go back and get later if they still have it..but yesterday...I got this wonderful Coke box. I really liked it in the store, and once I got it home and filled with my scrappy stuff...I'm in love! *sigh* I get a silly little grin on my face every time I look at it! It's sooo pretty...and VERY functional too...even Tim was impressed! lol

I've had my eye on Coke boxes for a while, but find them to be pretty pricey... do you mind me asking what you paid? Were bottles included, or an option? Thanks! Yours looks great!
