OK, here goes..........My first Blog!!!!!! I'm so excited!!! I don't know what to say!!!! Nah.....I've always got something to say!!! I love a good thrift store and my car automatically stops at Yard Sales. I have no control over these things. Just the other night, my husband was going to get something out of my trunk and opened the trunk, then just closed it back and as he was walking away, shaking his head, I thought I heard him mumble something about me 'having a problem'. Thank the Lord he loves me and knows I can't do too much damage buying cheap, old stuff!

First thing I wanna state is that I'm gonna try to keep this real. If your anything like me, you have very full lives so we don't have a lot of time to do things as 'perfectly' as we would like (maybe when the kids are gone), ....which means a couple want fast, easy projects that you can do either when the kids are sleeping or when YOU should be. You are most likely creative which means you will understand and forgive me if something is misspelled or there is a shoe, dog, or Heaven forbid, a toy in some of my pics! Above all, I want to enjoy this, I want you to enjoy it too and want to come back time and time again!

So..... I'm super excited to get started! I'm going to start by posting some of the pics of my house, we just moved in a few months ago so I've got some 'before' shots when things were clean and it actually looked like we had some room!!!! Then, I've got several works in progress and lots of yard sale finds I want to share with you!!! There is nothing like that feeling you have when you have found something to buy that you love, is valuable or useful, or you know is 'exactly' right for a friend or loved one. My mom described it perfectly one time...She had found a wonderful old quilt in a thrift store for like $9.95. She said she "laughed all the way to the register". That's how I feel and I hope you do too!!!! So hold we go......
