Went to the Goodwill near work today on a mission to pick up some cheap flat sheets to use as drop cloths. I'm going to be painting the Craft Palace and I hate those plastic drop cloths. Of course, since I was there I had to check out the other stuff. Pickin's were a bit slim but aside from the sheets, I did manage to score a couple of goodies and have a PMP moment!
How awesome is this house? It stands about 30 inches high and was $2!! I'm going to paint it a pale yellow I think. but here's the best part:
It's a cabinet!!!! This is destined for the Craft Palace as cute storage!
Here is my PMP moment. This purse is brand new and was only $5!! Super cute for spring & summer!And here's the inside:
I decided since I was over on that side of town I'd check out this fleamarket I rarely go to. Mostly because it's a pigsty and you feel like you need a hot shower after you go in. And then there's the fact that the prices most of the dealers are asking for JUNK--and not junk in a good way-are often absolutely delusional. They act like they carry priceless heirlooms when it's Dollar Store quality. But I thought what the heck-why not buzz through. It was worth feeling like bugs were crawling on me cuz again-JACKPOT.
I hit a booth where everything was 50% off and the original prices were really good to start with. As you can see with my last post-I'm collecting vintage figural planters. All of these babies cost between 50 cents and $1.50. Yup-you read that right. THAT cheap!!
Love birds and Siamese cat planter
Porky Pig planter(probably from the 30's) and cow creamer(I also collect creamers)
Adorable planter with scottie dogs and a little elephant pulling a wagon.
I was cleaning out some stuff and organizing it to give to a fundraiser for Haiti yard sale last nite and came across this stuffed bear. Billy pulled it out of the pile and has fallen in love with it. He carries it around (ok drags it around) and it's almost as big as he is. He like to lay next to it and kiss it. I guess that's a good thing. I had a friend who's shi-zu "romanced" a teddy bear in a pretty disgusting way if you know what I mean.

Finally!! Bear is ready for a nap. So is Bill!!
Miss Kae-Kae working her "cute" She's not exerting herself to move a stuffed bear!!
Well, that's all for now. I may be a bit incognito posting for the next week or so--I'm getting ready to paint the Craft Palace and do some decorating in there!! I'll be taking lots of pix to share!!
Have a Blessed Easter!!! Aren't you glad the grave is empty????
